If you are a fan of South Park, and like Tower Defense games, then there’s nothing not to like about South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play!
True to the nature of the show, South Park Let’s Go Tower Defense Play! (which will hereafter be referred to as SPLGTDP!) is all about the humor. With generous vocal support from show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, this Xbox Arcade offering focuses its plot around an invasion of the titular (hehehe) town of South Park, presented in an exaggerated manga style reminiscent of the “Fun With Weapons” episode (hence the mouthful of a title).
As it has always been in that Colorado town, it’s up to the children to save the day.
Unlike Keyan I usually trade in my old games for store credit so I can turn around and grab up the next big title I’ve been looking forward to. There are a couple titles that I won’t trade in on principal – the Halo games, Resident Evil games, racing games… everything else though is just fodder towards securing my next procurement.
So I was pretty excited when I traded 3 or 4 older games and got $72 in trade in credit. (for the record – I’m doing this at Play ‘N Trade – a newer video game chain/franchise that’s been cropping up). So there I was with all this credit and looking for something to nab – that’s when I saw it. Glistening in the florescent lighting – all sparkly and angelic looking – was a used copy of Need for Speed: SHIFT. A practically brand new game that normally retails for $59.99 MSRP being given away for $45.95. A steal!
This week is a fine time to be an Xbox 360 owner.
This isn’t going to be a week to revolutionize the console, nor will it provide any major game-changers that history will look back upon with massive significance. However, there are some nice items coming down for Xbox 360 owners that I will happily accept and enjoy.
The more esoteric offering up for grabs is the exclusive premium Fallout 3 theme. Available for free to those who purchased all five DLC packs (Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and Mothership Zeta) prior to a cut-off point early last month, fans of the awesome post-nuclear game should have already received an e-mail with a code for redeeming the download. I’ve got mine, and it’s a cool theme (although I have to admit that I’m tempted to go back to the free Halo 3: ODST one that came out before this one).
It’s time for me to take back some of the mean things I said about Dead Space: Extraction. Although we liked what we had a chance to see at E3 our most recent exposure to the game at PAX left us feeling a little “meh” about it. I said some not-so-nice things and someone had the nerve to comment on that article saying it was too soon to phone it in. Well screw him – even if he was correct!
Dead Space: Extraction is an awesome game and while it doesn’t exactly live up to the epic thriller that it’s big brother set up it’s abundantly clear that Dead Space: Extraction has the same high quality production values that the first game was lovingly crafted with.
