Purchases Tuesday, August 16, 2011: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron (PS3) and Ratchet and Clank Future: Crack in Time (PS3)


Today marked the release of El Shadai and at GameStop they also had a door crasher sale on Ratchet and Clank for only $4.98.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is about an angel named Enoch who is tasked with gathering up fallen angels and binding them to a prison in heaven. The gameplay so far is like that of most hack and slash games (God of War, Devil May Cry, etc.), but with some minor differences in combat, like cleansing your weapon. When you’re attacking enemies, your weapon will get darkness on it and you can wipe it clean to ensure maximum damage. The graphics are where the game is really set apart. Lots of interesting landscapes and a very unique colour palette. It’s a strange game, but it’s actually decent. More on this when I finish it.

Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is another game I picked up due to it’s extremely cheap price. It wasn’t on my must-buy list, but definitely worth adding to my collection under the circumstances. More on this when I actually get around to playing it.
