March 21, 2011: wallet threat level multihued

, | Games

It’s a big week for EA with the release of Crysis 2 and The Sims: Medieval. I’m afraid I have no idea whether either is any good. Stay tuned for this week’s game diaries for both.

Even though I was pleasantly surprised by the Lego Harry Potter, I can’t really muster any enthusiasm for Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I’m feeling a little Lego fatigue, not to mention a little Star Wars fatigue, and a lot of prequel antipathy.

I quite liked Dissidia, an open arena brawling game with an appropriately flashy anime style (pictured), given that it was supposed to be based on Final Fantasy. Not that I knew who any of the characters were. But it was a solid fighting RPG for the PSP, and I’m glad to see it’s getting a sequel, which is also out this week. Wrap your head around this title: Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy. Good luck getting some hapless Gamestop employee to look that one up.
