This is the list of our favorite games released in 2009. It was made from combining picks by myself and Andrew. Just like the 10 Best Films of 2009, this list is in descending order. And instead of trying to re-cap the year in a few sentences let’s just get right to the action.
Click the cut to take a look at the games coming out today.
I want to start this off by first saying, if you were scared by the length of my Assassin’s Creed 2 review, I’m sorry. I also want to apologize for again waiting so long to post a review for a game I played a while ago.
Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is the latest entry in the Ratchet and Clank franchise. The greatest action platforming franchise ever! Yes, that’s right, greatest ever. Few platformers even exist anymore, so I want to take this time to thank Insomniac for keeping platformers alive with Ratchet and Clank.
A Crack in Time is the ending of the Ratchet and Clank Future trilogy. So, is this a fitting end to this PS3 trilogy?
Me, being an idiot, hadn’t checked one of my e-mail accounts in a couple weeks. When I did check my e-mail I found this awesomeness waiting for me. DC Direct has made these sweet duos of Ratchet and Clank action figures that may or may not be available at your local comic shop. They’re available on Amazon.com right now from Newbury Comics, which is local if you’re in the same state as we are (Massachusetts). Click the cut to see pictures of all of Series 1.
When MAG was demoed at E3 2009, I was giddy with excitement. All of a sudden everything that Hideo Kojima wrote in his Metal Gear story-lines had been compiled and repackaged as a huge 256 person shooter on a free online service. Zipper Interactive carved their way into my fanboy head with promises of organized gameplay and in-depth class systems that had as many possibilities as their were people online. The public beta is now unlocked and can be played by anyone who owns a PS3. What is the verdict on this massively open beta?
In another “wait on something Sony exclusive” post today, Sony has announced the coming of the PS3 Slim. The 120 GB PS3 Slim will be released September 1st and will retail for $299. The current 80 GB model just dropped down to $299, so now there is really no reason to buy that. The new Slim’s will not be backward compatible, so don’t go throwing away your PS2 just yet. It’s a nice matte finish that won’t show fingerprints (apparently the guy in the video thought the same thing). Check out the video of the unboxing below…
Another tidbit of Little Big Planet news. Media Molecule has decided to add water into the game. Prepare yourself for a shit-ton of water levels. This could be a good test though, because if someone can make a good water level then maybe they deserve a job as a game designer.
