AAA’s Targets of the Week: Just Cause 2, Mass Effect: Firewalker, The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom 

This week sees the release of Just Cause 2 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. The original game was considered by some to be nothing more than a GTA clone, but it’s gone on to become perhaps even more mad and crazy, with unbelievable stunts similar to what you’d see in Hollywood being shown in the trailers for this game.

Bad news for PC gamers though, seeing as the game doesn’t support Windows XP; Vista and Windows 7 only. The reason for this was given as the fact that the game was designed to support DirectX 10 fully, and so XP with DX 9 is completely out.

Other games that are out this week include the free DLC pack for Mass Effect 2, called Firewalker, which adds some new missions, and a new vehicle to replace the somewhat disliked, and perhaps a bit unrealistic Mako from Mass Effect: the M57 Hammerhead. Just to make it clear: it’s free to Cerberus Network users. Everyone else has to pay a membership fee to get it.

There’s The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom too – but beware, because this is another Ubisoft published title and incorporates their highly controversial new DRM, just like Assassin’s Creed II for the PC did.

A big Wii title that everybody’s been going on about for some time is Red Steel 2. That comes out this week too. It’s basically like an East meets West sort of game, with guns and swords and stuff.

Links as usual go to Amazon for retail versions, but also Direct2Drive, Steam, etc, for digital distribution versions. You can also check my Amazon aStore to see what the latest and greatest games are.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
