January 30, 2012: wallet threat level genre yellow

, | Games

An elevated wallet threat level has been issued for die-hard fans of JRPGs or fighting games due to the release of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Soulcalibur V. I’ll have full reviews soon, but at this point all I can say for sure is that one of them is terrible.

On the completely unknown front is Neverdead (pictured), a shooter from the developers of the forgettable but decent Rogue Trooper five years ago and the forgettable but terrible Aliens vs. Predator two years ago. And if you’re a sucker for iPhone games and Cthulhu, make a sanity check against the five-dollar Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, a tactical combat game about fighting Shug Nigguraths and whatnot.
