I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

THE 10 BEST GAMES OF 2009: EDITOR'S PICKS

 

Blake's Pick - Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 – Yes, true believers, Avengers Assemble! and Flame On!, because It's Clobberin' Time and I'm The Best There Is At What I Do, and You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry. By The Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth and Odin's Beard, With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility, so play Ultimate Alliance 2 responsibly. 'Nuff Said. ~Blake


Nick's Pick - Muramasa: The Demon Blade – A great Wii game is one that makes me forget that I own a PS3 and an Xbox 360. A great Wii game is one that has awe-inspiring graphics which belie the technical limitations of the system. A great Wii game is one whose simplicity is in its details, whose vision cannot be denied. A great Wii game is Muramasa: The Demon Blade. ~Nick


Duke's Pick - LocoRoco 2 Nick here. Since Duke is in the middle of a Mexican jungle, finding his way to a mole sauce, and he completely trusts me (*evil smile*) to speak for him, I believe that this is what he has to say about LocoRoco 2:

Powapowa jyuijyui naparasu
Powapowa jyuijyui ma-mu-shi-ka
Powapowa jyuijyui naparasu
Parerra powadhiru yutte rakonte
Muimui muimui

I ma gona kila Niku wen i gete bake.




Jesse's Pick - Blazblue: Calamity Trigger BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger kicked me right in my cel-shaded testicles. In a year filled with more intense 2D fighting action than a deadly tic-tac-toe tournament, BlazBlue stands out from its flat-faced peers. Its inviting cartoon exterior disguises a fiendishly complex and rewarding combat system and (*gasp*) story—even if it does take someone like Charles Minard to make sense of the combo charts and a tag team of Carl Jung and Stephen Hawking to make sense of the brilliantly convoluted plot. ~Jesse


Eduardo's Pick - Panzer General: Allied Assault Panzer General: Allied Assault brought out the general in me this year in the form of a very addicting card game for XBLA. Even though it's set in one of the most clichéd settings in the past few years, it makes the most of it. Units are varied and interesting, and both sides - Axis and Allies - have their pros and cons. The campaign can also take props for being fairly lengthy for a downloadable game, taking place in various famous historical moments in WW2, like the Normandy Beach landing, the Battle of the Bulge, and even Operation Marketgarden. Worth a look if you are interested in strategy games! ~Eduardo
