2008 Video Game Preview: Part II

Class is back in session, so break out your notebook paper and #2 pencils as we school you on some of the best video game releases of 2008. If you missed Part I, check it out here to catch up with the rest of the class. Your homework: Read up on these hits that allow you to battle as your favorite characters of games past, help clear a pal's name for a crime he didn't commit, find your way through a seriously spooky mystery and dive into a great sequel to an epic adventure. Study on!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Ever since Brawl was delayed back in November, we have been waiting oh so impatiently to play this 3-D fighter. With so many of my favorite characters to pit against one another, and now the option to play online through Wii wi-fi, it just keeps getting better — and harder to wait for! Finally coming to the Wii in February.

Want to see the others? Well then,

Secret Agent Clank
Taking place after PSP's Shiny Action but before PS3's Tools of Destruction, the trusty sidekick from the Ratchet and Clank series takes off on his own adventure — Ratchet's been framed and Clank busts out trying to clear his pal's name. Hints of mini-games and fast battles await. Portable fun on your PSP this fall.

Alan Wake
Horror writer Alan Wake's girlfriend disappears in ways similar to those in his best selling book. Visions of his missing girl, insomnia, and the eerie town of Bright Falls make for a nightmarish game that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Creeping you out in late 2008 on your Xbox 360 and PC.

Fable 2
The free roaming world of Fable 2 now includes the unconditional love of your pet dog where every move that you make affects him. The ability to start a family and buy any property makes this RPG epic an investment in your time. Available on Xbox 360 and PC in later 2008.

Stay tuned for the last of our three part series on the best game releases of 2008!

SkinnyMarie, I love the Katamari icon! I wish Nintendo had some DS games that I could be excited about. They don't seem to have much lined up there.

That stinks they are getting rid of the "double dash" style racing for the mario kart. That was so much fun. No more playing both baby mario and baby luigi.

You can preorder Mario Kart right now on Amazon for April. Still no Pre-orders on the Wii fit, though. I'm really sad the see the back seat drivers go in Mario Kart. That was my favorite part of the game! :( I'd like to hear word of a 2008 Zelda, but unless someone can cough up a phone number for Miyamoto I doubt I'd believe it.

I am biting at the bit to get the new smash brothers. I heard it also lets you use three different ways to control it, which is a great option.
