The Playlist: June 2010

Check out what’s being released and what the TGR staff members are playing this month.

Summer is at last upon us with it’s bountiful bounty of sunshine, storms, flowering plants, and the pollen they send coursing through the greenery. If any of these factors bother you overtly then there is an easy solution; video games! That’s right, it’s time again for another issue of The Playlist, which gives you the low down on all the games you need to keep away from Nature and all it’s complicated effects.

What’s on the TGR Playlist?

Sin and Punishment 2 was one of the highlights from last year’s E3 and I’m still waiting for it to come out already.
Jeffrey Matulef, Associate Editor

Alpha Protocol: Obsidian’s “Espionage RPG” has me mildly interested. How could I possibly ignore a game based on the amalgamation of Jack Bauer, James Bond and Jason Bourne? Mild interest doesn’t mean a purchase though.
Patrick Mulhern, Associate Editor

There’s something about Naughty Bear that commands my attention – enough to warrant a purchase? We shall see…
Chris Poirier, Community Manager

I’m definitely interested in anything MGS, so Peace Walker is on my radar. The reality, though, is that I probably won’t play it for another year or so. :-
