New Video Game Releases – June 2012
The new video game releases for June 2012 is giving us the feeling that it might be a good month to brush up on all the video game titles we missed out on so far this year. Finally, things get a bit slower. The list is filled with movie tie-ins and a Katy Perry-themed Sims expansion means that there’s not a lot of quality coming, although there is that Steel Battalion Kinect game and a Sins of a Solar Empire expansion.
Clearly the most exciting video game release in June 2012 is Lollipop Chainsaw, the hack and slash action game that features a hot blonde cheerleader killing zombies in a high school. Sex, violence and rock n’ roll is the name of the game, an utterly gratuitous and ridiculous grindhouse-themed orgy of blood.
Filmmaker James Gunn (‘Slither’, ‘Super’) wrote the game’s story and characters and it was produced by Suda 51 of No More Heroes fame, so there’s a good chance for insanity. There’ s a few famous voices in the cast as well, like Linda Cardellini (‘Freaks and Geeks’), Sean Gunn (James Gunn’s brother, who was killed via fire hydrant in ‘Tromeo and Juliet’), and Jimmy Urine from Mindless Self Indulgence, who plays a punk rock boss named Zed as well as composing music for the boss segments. And then there’s Jessica, the stunning real-world counterpart of the game’s main character Juliet, who you can expect to see in a bunch of upcoming commercials. Easy to anticipate those and hope for a fun time with the game.
