As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!
No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise is like a Quentin Tarantino movie: gratuitous violence, scantily clad babes, and a plot focused around killing. And that’s not a bad thing. Heroes’ Paradise is an enhanced port of the original Wii game, and it comes with a flashy new HD visual update, as well as a few extra goodies to keep the assassination fest going.
If the Wii isn’t HD, then can we consider the Playstation Move the HD Wii? It would appear to be, at least to some degree, as a few past Wii-exclusive games are making the hop over to the HD PS3. The first game being No More Heroes, which gets an updated port on the PS3 entitled Heroes Paradise. I’ve got my hands on the game and got some play time in already, but how does it stack up so far compared to the original Wii title? Read on and find out.
