The Gaming Friday Ahead – October IV


Another October week, another slew of great games on friday. The highlight for this friday is undoubedly Shinji Mikami’s masterpiece Vanquish. Taking the style and slickness of his previous games like Devil May Cry and PN03, Vanquish brings japanese sensibilites to a decidedly western looking game. Don’t the Master Chief style armour fool you though, this is full-on Japanese action – complete with dodgy script (remember to play with Japanese Audio if you intend on taking the story seriously).

The other main attraction is Fallout Vegas. While it looks almost exactly like Bethesda’s Fallout 3, Obsidian’s child is still an attractive prospect. With a huge amount of positive reviews and many gameplay elements brought back from the classic Fallout games, this is sure to please the many Fallout fans out there. Word of (timed) Xbox exclusive DLC is a little sad to see, but nothing a GOTY edition next year won’t fix 😀
