Retail Releases: Week of August 15th, 2011

By Perpalicious, 5 years ago
The cliche proverb "it's always darkest before the dawn" fits quite well into the summer gaming drought of 2011. Last week, gamers saw no new releases or re-releases, a dismal time to say the least. This week paints a different picture as gamers are receiving a "divine" sign, specifically in the form of Ignition Entertainment's El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. While Europe and Australia are left out from acquiring the angelic game, their drought also ends with the release of 2D Fighting game Arcana Heart 3. Do not fret if none of these interest you as the long anticipated Deus Ex: Human Revolution is on the horizon with many more games following. The drought looks to be over and fresh games will soon refresh those stiff fingers.
