Did you know that the N64 launched with exactly two games in the U.S.? Those times we didn’t have to worry about ports clogging up launch day. Instead we were treated to two original titles that remain as enjoyable today as the day they were released. I don’t think any consoles since then has ever reached that kind of quality to quantity ratio. These days, console launches come alongside a flood of games in hope that someone accidentally buys one of them thinking they can play it on the system they already have. Case in point.
Missed me? I would have written something last week if I hadn’t passed out from PAX exhaustion or if there was anything even remotely interesting to tell you about unless you think Everyone Sings for PS3 and Xbox 360 is interesting. This week’s offering seems to be a little bit more palatable, so I’ll do you all a solid and shake off the remnants of my PAX hangover so that I may “enlighten” you with the games of the week.
Lucha Libre seem to be all the rage in fighting games these days. Where most wrestlers in these games are slow and powerful, the masked luchador is acrobatic, flashy and graceful. There’s Virtua Fighter 5′s El Blaze and Street Fighter IV‘s El Fuerte, for example. King is Tekken’s resident luchador, but Namco felt the need to introduce another one.
