Pixeljunk Shooter, Hello Kitty, and Heir to the Throne
Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Pixeljunk Shooter, Hello Kitty Online, and EUIII: Heir to the Throne!
The team at Pixeljunk have been getting hit after hit making games for the Playstation Network, starting with Pixeljunk Racers, then the tower-defense game Monsters, followed by the even bigger hit Eden. But now Shooter plans to gun them all down with yet another addictive and innovative game. You fly a little ship around caverns filled with water and lava in order to either rescue or destroy miners scattered within. The water and lava interact with one another using awesome fluid dynamics to act kind of like puzzles throughout the game. You can play local co-op with a friend, too, and save each other if you overheat.
Hello Kitty Online
Hello Kitty Online was recently opened up to the public fully, coming out of a beta version. Hello Kitty Online is a massively-multiplayer online game with just tons of stuff going on, I don't even know where to start. You get a farm to grow and sell crops, you can beat up monsters with microphone stands, you can cook and make clothes, you can get monsters as pets, and socialize with your friends.
EUIII: Heir to the Throne
Alright fellow history nerds/strategy game fans, Europa Universalis III is getting another expansion pack, that really amps up the fun level. The "casus belli" system, which basically lets you fight wars, has been expanded so that now wars have specific goals all the way through. The Holy Roman Empire and Papacy both get a little more interesting with new options to choose from. Monarchs now belong to their historical dynasties, allowing for more realistic interaction between kings and queens that are actually relatives. If you're a fan of EUIII, this adds a lot of interest into the game, and is well worth checking out.
