New Releases for PS3 This Week (4.18.11)

After a few quiet weeks for new games and content on the PS3, the great selection of games out this week should be enough to keep almost every gamer happy. First, there are three new games coming out on Blu-ray in stores: SOCOM 4, Mortal Kombat, and the brilliant Portal 2.  

There are no less than five new PS3 games available for download on the PlayStation Network. Most notably the classic Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and the 2D girl-on-girl fighting action of Arcana Heart 3.  

Also out on PSP this week is Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, which should be a must for all Final Fantasy fans. Not only does it include a graphically improved version of one of the best 2D games in the series, it also includes, among other things, the original game's direct sequel called Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.  

Without a doubt Game of the Week goes to Portal 2. It’s been getting some amazing reviews and is right up there with the best games of this generation. For those who missed out on the original there really isn’t anything else like this first-person puzzle platformer. As in the first game you again control Chell and have to work your way through the environments of the Aperture Science facility, which have become overgrown and rundown in the years since you were last there. The genius of Portal 2 is in its attention to detail and its incredibly well written, often hilarious, characters and story. A definite contender for Game of the Year.
