PALGN Weekly Releases - 28/06/10

PALGN Feature | Super spells.
This week, a number of new releases will be transforming consoles and computers everywhere into a buzzing hive of activity. First up is Activision’s time-bending first-person shooter from Raven Software, Singularity. Attempting to unravel a conspiracy of global proportions, players must warp back and forth between the 1950 and the present day with the aid of a personal TMD – Time Manipulation Device. Singularity is released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on Wednesday.

Next up, iconic player Tiger Woods earns another outing in Electronic Arts’ golf simulator, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11. Available on Xbox 360 and PS3, the Wii version supports the use of the MotionPlus for enhanced control. The latest SingStar, titled Chart Hits also arrives on PS2 and PS3.

Now, cast a spell and read on for the two titles to be named game of the week.

Two of my favourites out this week icon_biggrin.gif

SMG2 - bought at 8:30am on release day, love the first and from all accounts, the second is even better.

LEGO Harry Potter - love the Lego games, such great games to just relax and cruise through ... and they are one of those rare titles that girlfriends/wives/partners will happily play along with us. Haven't picked this up yet, think I will keep an eye on Play-Asia, they usually have Lego games on sale not too long after launch.
