G.R.O.W. 2/8/11


Welcome gaming bastards to another edition of G.R.O.W. This is NerdBastards weekly video game release list where we give y’all a heads up on what was released for the consoles and PC (and sometimes the MAC). We also cover downloadable titles as well.

We got a few releases today, with one game making its glorious come back by making you feel like you don’t know anything. We also have a couple of console exclusives that may interest you. Also, the PS3 released quite a lot of downloadable titles, with one new release being free to PS+ users.

So what are y’all waiting for? Check after the jump to see if there is anything coming out that will make your wallets cry!

You Don’t Know Jack

YOU DON’T KNOW JACK, the original quiz show party game, is back and trivia-y-er than ever! You’re the contestant in a truly interactive game show experience, complete with cash, prizes, backstage characters, pounding music, bizarre sound effects and your lovable but verbally sassy host, Cookie Masterson. Play at home or online – alone or with friends – as you battle through a trivia mind-field on your way to victory, defeat or, more likely, soiled pants.

We decided to re-imagine a new-and-improved YOU DON’T KNOW JACK for the 21st century. All of your favorite elements are still there: the twisted multiple-choice questions, musical question intros, the DisOrDat™, Screw Your Neighbor™ and the Jack Attack™, plus all kinds of new face-melting features and surprises – including online play! And of course, tons of all-new twisted trivia questions covering everything from Dr. Phil to Dr. Pepper, from Miley Cyrus to the Mile High Club. It’s fun, it’s funny, it’s funky, and it kills more than 99.9% of known fungi. YOU DON’T KNOW JACK!

The awesome PC trivia game is back and it still has the same humor that we all remember it for. Now with online multiplayer and one can only imagine that they probably will release new trivia questions as DLC, the game is set to entertain you for quite some time.

Available: PC, PS3, 360, Wii, DS

Mario Sports Mix

Mario Sports Mix is a fast-paced and fun sports game for Wii featuring all your favorite Nintendo characters in over-the-top Mushroom Kingdom athletic action. Events included in the game include basketball, volleyball, dodgeball and hockey playable both on ice and elsewhere. Additional features include: multiplayer support, including four-player co-op play and two-on-two competitive play; special devastating moves available for each character; the ability to use koopa shells and other means against opposing players; a variety of game environments and more.

Pretty much Nintendo didn’t feel that most of these sports title could be released as individual games so they did the right thing by turning this into a game collection. Not only do you play as well known Mario characters, we do see some Square Enix characters added to the mix. If a game lets you play as a Slime and Cactuar, I say it’s worth checking out.

Available: Wii

Trinity: Souls Of Zill O’ll

A king will die at the hands of his own offspring, reads the prophecy of Chancellor Zofor. Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll delivers an unforgettable journey through a world in peril. Players take control of three heroic characters as their quest takes them through a fantastic world filled with vast fields, mysterious cities and dark chambers. According to myth, the continent of Vyashion, as well as the physical world, was created by the god Notoon. Although universally worshipped across the continent, the people’s shared faith in Notoon failed to bring about a unified society. Vyashion’s many races – human, elf and vampire – have maintained an uneasy peace amongst each other and must now come together to fight the evil King Balor. Players will use a unique team-based system to switch between each of the three characters – a warrior, a wizard and an assassin – on the fly and unleash combo attacks that use both magic and physical prowess to defeat the countless creatures and towering minions of King Balor.

It’s an action RPG that import Sony fans may recognize as the franchise finally shows up on the new console. There is a demo available on the Playstation store that may prove to you if you’ll enjoy the game or not.

Available: PS3
