[Shipping Out] April 7th

Oh, hey, we've got some PSP pew-pew, some platforming and some keeyaw!
Author: TPS Staff
Published: April 7, 2009
Welcome to Shipping Out, our weekly notice of all them thar games that ship from publishers to retailers in preparation for their street date a day later. In many cases, these games won't be on store shelves until tomorrow, but in the interest of getting the word out, letting the PR departments have their fancy quotes and saving us sanity as the weekly releases pile up, we're going to be consolidating everything down into one handy little news story at the end of the day, along with this description. Neat, eh? And lazy!


It's the TPS way.

[PlayStation 2]

[Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus]
There have been a lot of Guilty Gear releases over the years (our own meager database lists Guilty Gear X, Guilty Gear X2 and Guilty Gear Accent Core just for the PS2 alone), but publisher Aksys and developer Arc System Works say this one is the definitive version. 480p visuals on the PS2, full voice acting for the storyline bits, the return of Justice and Kliff and the option for three-way tag team battles (among other additions) certainly go a long way to proving they’re right, but we’ll give Aksys a chance to chime in all official-like.

"With the inclusion of Kliff and Justice, a brand-new story mode, a re-tuned survival mode, and a team mode, be prepared for long nights of Guilty Gear action," gushes Michael Manzanares, Producer at Aksys Games. "I hope fans of the series will enjoy this title as much as we did working on it."

[PlayStation Portable]

[Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II]
“Air Conflicts puts the greatest planes of WWII in the palm of your hand,” claims Kenneth Hurley, pulling double duty as CEO of Signature Devices, Inc. and Graffiti Entertainment, Inc. “It features true to the time aircraft designs, 13 campaigns with more than 240 action-packed missions and incredible graphics that immerse players in a beautiful, rich and realistic world.”

Dammit, Kenneth, you basically did our job for us. You listed all the missions, all the campaigns, all the... um... World War II-ness of the game. Aha, but he forgot to mention the 17 "historically authentic" planes or the 8 player Wi-Fi play. Unfortunately, he pretty much covered everything else, the big jerk. How else are we going to pad our day with fluffy news pieces if he does a better job of pitching it than we ever could. Sheesh, overachievers...

[Dragonball: Evolution]
We don’t normally do this for [Shipping Out], but we’ll just go ahead and say you should skip right on by Dragonball: Evolution. We won’t say why, we won’t explain it, we’re just listing this one because it actually came out and Namco Bandai Games America, bless their hearts, sent us the press release for the game just like we asked, so we’re going to at least let people know it’s out, but… yeah, don’t buy this one. Please don’t. Please. Seriously. In fact, that’s our review too.

[Hammerin' Hero]
"Hammerin' Hero marks the triumphant return of Gen, everyone's favorite justice-bringing carpenter! Help Gen fight off Hyosuke Kuromoku and his evil construction company before they can evict Gen's neighbors from their homes! Gen will have to use a variety of jobs-from DJ to baseball player-through 12 diverse stages if he hopes to thwart the all-out attack of the Kurokomu Group and win the hearts of the people, even if it sometimes means giving them the tough love they need to solve their own problems."

We know our review isn't out yet [edit: it is now!] but we would definitely take the risk and get this game if you are looking for a really great side scrolling action/jump and run/RPG crossover. This game is maniac and its awesome! Go get it and then come back here to read our review which will only confirm your wise decision.

[PlayStation 3]
