About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


Majesco Unveils 2005 Holiday Lineup

by Judy on Oct. 31, 2005 @ 8:30 a.m. PST

Majesco today announced its video game lineup for the forthcoming holiday season. Highlights include Infected (PSP) and Aeon Flux (PS2/ Xbox), which will both ship in November and cost $39.99 and $49.99, respectively.

Infected features pulse-pounding two-gun action as players cleanse the mean New York City streets of mad, flesh-hungry "Infected." Planet Moon Studio's zombie-fest offers an engrossing single-player campaign and four Wi-Fi multiplayer modes that allow players' avatars to invade opponents' PSP systems. Infected also features an in-game soundtrack comprised of top metal bands from Roadrunner Records including Slipknot, Ill Nino, Chimaira and more.

Aeon Flux bridges the fever-dream essence of the cult-classic animated TV series with the mass-market appeal of the upcoming feature film starring Oscar Winner Charlize Theron who lends her voice and likeness to the game. Developed by Terminal Reality, Aeon Flux features a palpitating blend of stealth, speed and acrobatic combat.

Majesco also plans to release several other titles from its $19.99 value line this holiday season, including:

  • Kong: King of Atlantis (Game Boy Advance)
  • Strawberry Shortcake Summertime Adventure Special Edition (Game Boy Advance)
  • Looney Tunes(TM) Double Pak (Game Boy Advance)
  • ATV Quad Frenzy (Nintendo DS)
  • Golden Nugget Casino DS (Nintendo DS)
  • Monster Trucks DS (Nintendo DS)
  • Super Black Bass Fishing (Nintendo DS)
  • Texas Hold 'Em Poker DS (Nintendo DS)
  • Worms 4: Mayhem (Xbox, PC)
  • Majesco's 3-in-1 Rec Room Challenge (Game Boy Advance)
  • 3-in-1 Sports Pack (Game Boy Advance)
