The digital market’s continuing trend of delivering both great indie games and ambitious yet risky titles. Thanks to this, gamers are able to get their hands on Bangai-O HD Missile Fury, a new iteration in the classic variety shmup. The niche nature of the game made it impossible to be released outside of a digital market. Some may call it masochism, but hardcore gamers and shmup fans are definitely getting their fill with this iteration of Bangai-O.
The God of Thunder makes a visit both to the movie theater and every major console this week in his movie tie-in game, Thor: God of Thunder. The PS3 gets another great retail release for fans awaiting MotorStorm: Apocalypse. Not much in the way for online releases for the PS3 though, which is just as well considering that we’re not even sure when exactly we’ll be back on the network. When it does come back though, guess you’ll be busy picking up games that came out last week! Things look bright for 360 owners though with the 360 exclusive Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury will be enough to make PS3 owners jealous regardless of PSN connectivity.
