Checkpoint: October 2009 Gaming Edition


First week of October is here so let’s take a look at this month’s noteworthy gaming line-up.

Week of Oct. 6

  • Demon’s Souls (PS3)
    • A seemingly tough JRPG with a western aesthetic. I’m intrigued by it and would love to play it, but it’s an incredibly crowded month.
  • NBA Live 10 (360, PS3, PSP)
    • Surprisingly, my brother isn’t picking up an NBA game this season.
  • Wii Fit Plus

  • Afrika (PS3)
    • An African safari simulator. I’d love to try this out.
  • MotorStorm: Arctic Edge (PSP, PS2)
    • It’s MotorStorm for the PSP and PS2. Intrigued, but that’s about it.
  • Critter Crunch (PSN)
    • It came out on iPhone already and if it wasn’t for the attractive price tag of $6.99, I wouldn’t have given this a second look. But here we are.
