Today’s releases are somewhat ironic in that each game’s protagonist would drive the other insane. First on the docket is Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown. First person shooter with the brashest, ‘manliest’, filthy minded hero ever seen in a video game. This is the ones your high school jock friends play when they aren’t throwing controllers in Madden. It’s a fun game, but it plays like a bottle of testosterone exploded in an adult book store.
The other game is Ghost in the Shell – you play a cybernetic femme fatale inside a mini-tank, which can scale walls and more. She’s strong, pretty much independent, and the polar opposite of who Duke would be looking for. A darn good vehicle combat game with some nice animation cinematics.
Christmas is in just 22 days! Everybody panic!
