With a new downloadable South Park game along with the fascinating monochromatic puzzler Closure, we might secretly have some hidden treasure available on consoles this week. Oh, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories for the Vita has been delayed.
Well this looks neat. According to the developer site, this puzzle platformer will have you playing as “a strange spider-like demon who explores the stories of three human characters through beautiful, eerie environments such as a decrepit factory, a murky forest, an abandoned carnival, and the strange, surreal realm that connects them together.” Apparently all of the puzzles involve using light to illuminate useable objects and elements of the environment. Eyebrow Interactive’s game was an IGF winner as well as an Indiecade winner, so it sounds like someone out there really likes this game.
Readers should note that I immediately hated myself for thinking of saying, “Gosh, this sounds like a bright idea.” But I would never subject you to that.
Title: South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge
Hey, remember that time Cartman fed some kid his own parents? Well, Other Ocean Interactive has made a followup to that plot in South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge for XBLA. After the surprise success of South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play! back in ’09, is it possible we might get another solid downloadable game based on the series? This time out, it’s a super-powered platformer from developer Other Ocean Interactive, who’ve mostly done ports (Castlevania: SOTN, Ultimate Mortal Kombat).
Here’s the synopsis:
Scott Tenorman is back and he wants revenge! Help Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny take on Tenorman and his army of Ginger robots before they destroy South Park! Suit up as the boys’ superhero alter-egos to track Scott and his evil forces through time and space in this exciting platformer. It’s the ultimate fight to save South Park!
Title: Capcom Digital Collection
Platform(s): Xbox 360
I always find these boxed releases of digital titles fascinating—”Who,” I ask, “doesn’t already have Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 that wants BCR2?” Of course I immediately get over myself and remember that these releases are for our brothers and sisters out there who either don’t do the whole game download thing or maybe want to get these games at a discount (it’s eight games for about a $40 price tag which isn’t bad at all).
So here’s the Capcom Digital Collection which collects BCR2, 1942: Joint Strike, Final Fight: Double Impact, Flock!, Rocketmen: Axis of Evil, Super Puzzle Fighter® II Turbo HD Remix, Super Street Fighter® II Turbo HD Remix, and Wolf of the Battlefield™: Commando 3. Outside of this being a 360-exclusive release (the PS3 needs some love, too), this sounds like the kind of smorgasbord of games worth your time and monies.
