I regret to inform you that Patapon 3 is nowhere near as good as Patapon 2. I suppose it’s an okay game, but it betrays a lot of what made Patapon 2 special. I’ll have a full review on 1up later this week, but my current assessment is that if you loved Patapon 2, your wallet isn’t any danger.
Otherwise, this week sees the release of a Vietnam war expansion for Magicka. You’d think I was making that up, but I’m pretty sure I’m not. Also out this week is an MMO about tanks called — again, I promise I’m not making this up — World of Tanks. I can’t imagine it’s not silly. We’ll have a game diary for it along shortly in case I need to be set straight.
