Out This Week - The Girls are back in Town
Posted by Mark
This week we are treated to two brand new heroines with their new Video Games.
First, up its Lollipop Chainsaw. Arriving this Friday on PS3 and Xbox 360. Lollipop Chainsaw focuses on cheerleader Juliet Starling, who fights hordes of zombies in San Romero High School, which Starling formerly attended. She carries with her the severed, yet still living, head of her boyfriend Nick, whom she decapitated after he suffered a zombie bite. The zombies are led by "a group of zombie rock and roll lords" who were former high school students who were turned into intelligent zombies.
In the game, Juliet has light attacks, which are kicks and punches, and heavy attacks which use her chainsaw. Light attacks are intended to herd enemy zombies together so that Juliet can finish them off all at once with heavy attacks. Killing enemies and saving classmates that are being attacked by zombies will fill up Juliet's star meter, which is used for super sparkle attacks.
Its basically the Power Puff Girls crossed with Day of the Dead.
Lollipop Chainsaw is out on this Friday on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Next we have the title that most PS Vita owners have been waiting for, Gravity Rush. Already avaliable in Japan as Gravity Daze, it has seen very postive reviews and has been hailed as the first AAA original title for Sony's new handheld.
The game is set in the fictitious, floating town of Hekseville. The story begins by introducing a girl called Kat, who has lost her memory. She then runs into a mysterious black cat that gives her the power to control gravity. Kat will use this ability in order to protect people from the threat of a Gravity Storm and the monsters that have appeared along with it.
Move The World Around You : Manipulate gravity to help you move around, shifting your perspective and enhancing your actions to complete dozens of missions spanning several worlds.
Full Motion Control : Use the PlayStation®Vita System gyro sensor to control gravity. Use the front and back panels to quickly react to shifting surroundings and dodge enemy attacks.
If you cannot wait until Friday for this beautiful game, then why not try the demo on the PS Store.
Gravity Rush is out on this Friday both via retail chains and digitally through the PlayStation Store.
