Notable Releases from 10, 20, and 30 years ago:

This week’s notable titles helped usher in the middle of the Summer season, coming out in that dead period around the Fourth of July holiday. Of the three, I think Dota 2 is, by far, the most well known and successful. Not to say that Samurai Shodown is a slouch, it is a very popular franchise with multiple entries, but it doesn’t have that Dota 2 money. Our 20 year old title, Silent Line: Armored Core, is the typical release schedule for the franchise; one mainline title, one sequel with the same numbering but with a new story. In this case, Silent Line is the sequel to Armored Core 3, but had the numbering removed for its North American release. It’s an okay game, nothing special there. A port for the PSP came out a few years later, both are out of print and expensive; fuck ’em.

How about those notable films and albums, eh? It took just ten years for Johnny Depp to go from being one of the most beloved actors in the world to one the most hated, impressive feat. The Firm showed that back in 1993, people would actually go to the theatre to watch a movie that didn’t have super heroes. Although, aren’t lawyers the REAL super heroes? Let’s give it up for lawyers. Anyway, this is what Notable Releases will be now, deal with it. Oh, and you’re welcome for now having that song by The Darkness stuck in your head all day.
