The Digital Matrix Reverb: The week of 10/4

Well kids, it’s that time of the year again.  The Digital Matrix Reverb is back in action to give you an inside look at the latest an greatest coming out this week.  This week we have three big titles coming out as well as a few other games that will mostly be ignored.

Without a doubt the biggest game this week is going to be NBA 2k11 (2ksports.com/games/nba2k11).  Playing as the legend himself, Michael Jordan, A whole new era of sports fans will be exposed to some of the greatest games in all NBA history.  NBA 2k11 will feature an all new Jordan Challenge mode, historic Bulls teams, and even a MJ: Creating a Legend mode offering gamers the chance to be a rookie Michael and craft a new career for him.  2k games has been able to topple the beast EA Sports at it’s own game.  How bad? NBA Live was the only other series out there offering basketball on the home console.  After losing ground over the past 10 years, NBA Live was finally put to rest.  In an effort to change it’s image and negative game reviews, EA changed their title’s name to NBA Elite. NBA Elite is now D.O.A. and has been pushed back to sometime in 2011.  There’s still a chance it will see the light of day, but not a big one.

The one I’m the most excited about this week is the debut of the new Castlevania: Lord of Shadow (www.konami.jp/castlevania.  Getting a leg up and being watched over by the Metal Gear Saga famous Kojima Productions, it looks to the game fans have been waiting for since the Nintendo 64 days.  Featuring voice acting from Star Trek famed Patrick Stewart,everyone will be in for a treat.  Look for the collectors edition for an artbook and a CD soundtrack for just 20$ extra.

The final highlight goes out to a new property called Enslaved: Odysse to the West (enslaved.uk.namcobandaigames.eu).  Humanity is all but extinct,  and just like that bitch of an ex-girlfriend a chick has put an explosive slave band around your head to make you protect her life.  She of course refuses to fight, so you have to do all the dirty work and make sure she doesn’t die.  Because  if she goes, you go with her.  The game itself looks beautiful and there is a collectors edition…..but it’s UK only.
