Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (NDS/PS2/PS3/X360/Wii)

Based on both the popular comic book series and the film Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which Twentieth Century Fox released June 15, 2K's video game includes exclusive plot elements that complement the film and a host of classic Marvel comics' story elements. In the game and the film, the Fantastic Four face their greatest challenge yet as the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, the Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to unleash destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, the team must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom.

"The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer video game capitalizes on the capabilities of next generation platforms to bring fun new features to the franchise, such as seamless four player co-op and the radically unique Fusion Attacks," said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K.

Game features:

  • Take on the role of any member of the Fantastic Four team and switch characters at any time. Each member has unique special abilities that will help the team get through different situations.
  • Unite and fight! Battle in four player co-op with easy pick-up-and-play ability.
  • Combine super powers for devastating team attacks with the new Fusion Attack System
  • Loads of unlockable features including alternate Fantastic Four costumes, historical comic covers, concept art and more!
  • Face enemies from the Fantastic Four universe including Red Ghost, Terrax and Super Skrull.
  • Enhance your super powers: use the Wii Remote on the Wii and the SIXAXIS controller on the PS3 for mega boost attacks.

"With Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, 2K is giving fans of the comic book series and movie franchise a great opportunity to continue the exciting Super Hero experience," said Justin Lambros, Vice President of Interactive at Marvel Entertainment, Inc. "Gamers can relive the best moments from the film and also play through additional storylines exclusive to the game."

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is now available and is rated "T" for Teen for PS 3, PS2, Xbox 360 and Wii. The DS version of the game is rated "E10+" for Everyone 10 and older.

Hot Brain also features the unique humor of comedy legend Fred Willard (Best in Show, Anchorman), who provides the voice for Professor Ed Warmer, the head of the Hot Brain Institute.

"With comedic legend Fred Willard as your guide, Hot Brain not only teases the mind but tickles the funny bone," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "Hot Brain is the perfect game for summer travel plans or just sitting around the house. It was built exclusively for Sony's PlayStation Portable system and will be a great addition to any gamer's library, no matter their skill level."

Created to challenge the minds of both casual and serious gamers, Hot Brain features five categories that test logic, memory, math, language and concentration. Inside these five categories are a series of puzzling games that progress in difficulty from easy to hard.
