on the shelves

08/31: Mercenaries 2: World in Flames [metacrtic] - the 40435th military-ish shooter released in the last three years on all systems. You can blow more stuff up in this one, that's the difference.

09/03: NFL Head Coach '09 [metacritic] - if you buy this game, it's time to consider professional help. There's a review that claims this is the closest football sim to Front Page Football, which I only like because unnecessary references to mid-90s Sierra games I spent enormous amounts of time on make these posts worthwhile. That game was fun. This game doesn't sound as much. This post is so late, I can accurately make a "NFL Head Coach cover curse, ah ha ha ha ha ha" but that's beneath me.

09/03: FaceBreaker [metacritic] - a button mashing game boxing game requiring no skill. The Kimbo Slice endorsement is even more perfect! Kinda old school - the latter CPU opponents don't have a better strategy or ability, they're just cheaper.

09/02: Rapala Fishing Frenzy [metacritic] - actually came out! probably shouldn't have bothered! apparently horrendous

09/02: World in Conflict: Soviet Assault - pushed back to 02/03/2009 - what? Someone must've entered the date wrong, I guess.

Holy CRAP. Never thought I'd see these guys end up on Rock Band. And I never thought that anyone anywhere had actually ever heard of them.

The whole 3pack are songs from the Penny Arcade eXpo, so I guess they're geeky enough.

Well, listen. Head Coach '07 (the last one) was horrible. This one was designed from the ground up, and I'm told is much better. I don't know if that's enough to make it worth playing. I mean, head coach isn't the most action packed job in the world. It's almost like they made a game where you work in an office all day.

You can go into one of the police stations and get a cop uniform. I forget which one it is, though.
