New Releases Tuesday: The Koreans Are Attacking

It’s Tuesday, March 15, 2011, and we have some new releases today for the video game and home movie market, including the controversial Homefront game.

Out on Blu-ray and DVD today is The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale (which he won an Academy Award) as they portray real life brothers, Mickey Ward and Dicky Ecklund. David O. Russell directed the movie that was nominated for many Oscars, yet many fans have no faith in his upcoming Uncharted adaptation.

Also out on Blu-ray/DVD:

  • WWE: The True Story of WrestleMania, starring Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon
  • The Switch, starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, and Patrick Wilson
  • Hereafter, starring Matt Damon and Bryce Dallas Howard.

For the video game category we have a bunch of new games coming out.

Homefront is out for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It’s a first person shooter game that takes place in the distant future about what would happen if North Korea was trying to take over American soil during an economic and energy crisis. The story is being written by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Kaos Studios developed the game with THQ publishing. It’s rated M.

Also out today is Yakuza 4 for the PlayStation 3. Developed and published by Sega, the game takes place a year after the events of Yakuza 3 in Tokyo. A murder has happened in the Tojo clan and it’s up to the 4 playable characters to find out what happened.

Next up we have Ōkamiden for the Nintendo DS. Players will use the stylus to draw their way through the game. The game stars Chibiterasu, a pup, and features a partner system and clever puzzles.

Other video games being released today:

A new map pack for Halo: Reach is out called Defiant Map Pack. For 800 Microsoft Points, you’ll get 3 new multiplayer maps, Condemned, Highlands, and Unearthed. The maps are developed in partnership with Certain Affinity.

So these are the main releases for today. As for me, I’ll be checking out The Fighter and maybe Homefront. As for Yakuza 4, I’ll probably pass because the fighting elements to me always felt like a chore. What will you guys be checking out?
