That's an amazingly uninteresting list of releases. Nothing for me this week.

I was interested in the AoE II HD edition until I heard about the multiplayer issues. I'm sure those will get fixed,so eventually that.

Maybe Guacamelee, depending on reviews and if there's a PS+ discount.

Guacamelee is supposed to be pretty cool, but I'll also wait for reviews.

EDIT (2 minutes later): Well, that didn't take long.  IGN's review score is posted as 9/10.  The link to the review isn't working yet though.

Guacamelee!  And possibly Motocross Madness if it's good after trying the demo.

EDIT (2 minutes later): Well, that didn't take long.  IGN's review score is posted as 9/10.  The link to the review isn't working yet though.

The review is up now:

Quote
When the single biggest complaint about a game is that you wish it was longer, that’s usually high praise. I beat Guacamelee in five and a half hours, though with only a 70% completion rating. Cleaning up the map may take another couple of hours, but don’t go in expecting much more than eight hours, tops. Either way, I could have spent twice that much time in a game twice as big and still been hungry for more. An unlockable hard difficulty mode and co-op change the experience enough to give you reasons to return once you’re done, at least. It’s a game that doesn’t hit you hard in the wallet or on the clock, but one that still thoroughly impresses.

THE VERDICT

Guacamelee isn’t only pretty to look at, it’s also a hell of a lot of fun to play. Its Metroidvania inspiration is undoubtedly strong, and yet it does so much to help it stand apart, not the least of which by providing gamers with a deceivingly deep combat system and a two-world polarity system that simply makes the experience more dynamic.

Sure, Guacamelee may be short – too short, in fact – but this gripe is, in the end, a compliment to its quality. It left me wanting more. Guacamelee is one of Vita’s best games, a top echelon PSN game for PS3, and DrinkBox Studios’ best effort to date. More, please.

Not a thing.  I've got too much backlogged at the moment.  I picked up The Red Front stuff off a bundle and F-1 off a deal sale last week, so I've got plenty to keep me busy.

I doubt it would be much of a thread. But yeah, it's pretty bad. Only nine tracks, loose handling, and ugly visuals. There's a reason it's only 800 mp.

I thought the demo was a lot of fun, and I thought the game looked great.  The lack of tracks may be a problem, but there seems to be a ton to do within those tracks (alternate paths, collectibles, levelling-up, etc).  Reviews so far are good, although some users are reporting bugs.

The alternate routes through the tracks are pretty cool. It reminds me of Joyride Turbo quite a bit in that regard. It's also lacking any significant challenge aside from finding collectibles in free roam, again, like Joy ride.

But I digress. I simply didn't find it to my liking. I've got loads to do yet in Terraria & Battleblock before Monaco hits.
