Think back to the last few months. Great games, right? This week’s a little different, but there’s at least one title worth picking up for your Xbox 360 or PS3.
X-Men Arcade (360, PS3)
That’s right, the most exciting release of the week is an 18-year-old Konami arcade game. That’s not to take away from the game, though. ‘X-Men’ is one of my absolute favorites from the arcades of my youth. There’s drop-in/drop-out co-op for up to six players. The PS3 can even handle six players on one system, while the 360 can only support four. You can pick it up on the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Arcade. Dibs on Wolvie.
Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition (Wii)
My heart leaps at the thought of a newly remade version of the original ‘Mario All-Stars’, but this isn’t it. ‘Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition’ for the Wii is just a reissue of the original Super Nintendo game. It might be cool for extreme Mario fans, but at $60, it just doesn’t offer that much in the way of new and interesting content. Luckily, as UltimateFlynn points out, it’s only $30. That’s a price that makes the purchase much more tempting.
Just Sing! Christmas Songs 2 (DSi)
Have you realized that there are almost no games that take advantage of the DSi’s horrible built-in microphone? It’s absolutely ridiculous. Thankfully ‘Just Sing! Christmas Songs 2’, a downloadable title for the DSi, is here to remedy things. You’ll be able to sing into your DS while trying to read words on the screen. Play it in public for the greatest effect.
