Missed me? Well let’s pretend you do because I totally missed you guys! The last half of December had absolutely nothing coming out hence my absence. You could say game releases are like blood in the water, and I’m the shark. This week, we’ve got all of one game coming out, and that seems to be enough to wake me out of my sharkly slumber.
Remember. Release dates are quite literally made at the whims of the publisher. The following are subject to change without any warning.
Coming This Week

When one chainsaw just isn’t enough . . .
Anarchy Reigns (Xbox 360, PS3)
Remember Madworld for the Wii? Turns out it got a sequel! Sort of. Anarchy Reigns stars Jack Cayman of Madworld fame as he tracks down the dude who killed his daughter. Like before, he’ll do it in the bloodiest way possible. Despite being a brawler through and through, Anarchy Reigns actually has several multiplayer modes. Most of which you can find in a first person shooter’s multiplayer mode like Capture the Flag and Team Deathmatch. Players get to choose one of 16 fighters to play as in multiplayer, some of which hailing from Madworld as well. Only Ninja Gaiden 3 has done a multiplayer brawler before, and it didn’t exactly fare all that well. Although Platinum Games has proven their worth in the world of brawlers, can they extend their magic to the multiplayer arena?
