New in video games: Week of Jan. 26, 2009


The coming week’s new video games are nothing much to write home about, but there are some decent-looking options for PlayStation 2 owners. Yes, I said PlayStation TWO.

Nobunaga's Ambition

>> Nobunaga’s Ambition: Iron Triangle (pictured) by KOEI Corp (PlayStation 2, $29.99, rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older) [READ STORY]

>> Afro Samurai by Namco (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, $59.99, rated M for mature)

>> Coraline by D3 Publisher (Nintendo DS, Wii, and PlayStation 2, $29.99, rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older)

>> Tomb Raider: Underworld by Eidos Interactive (PlayStation 2, $29.99, rated T for teen)

Also: My Dress Up and My Secret Diary for Nintendo DS

(Sounds about right — if I played “dress up,” I’d write about it in my “secret diary” … and throw away the key. –JP)

Next week: RYGAR: The Battle of Argus for Wii and World in Conflict: Soviet Assault for PlayStation 3

Here and there ...
