Dark Void, Big Muscles—Weekly Roundup 1/18

by Jeff Cork on Jan 18, 2010 at 02:37 AM

It's another slow week for new releases, with the standouts being Dark Void and an especially peculiar WiiWare title. Dark Void, of course, is Capcom and Airtight Games' third-person action shooter, which is commonly referred to as "That one with the jet pack." There are no jet packs in Muscle March, though there are more that enough guns, ripped torsos and tiny trunks to go around. Egad. Image Comics is also releasing issue #3 of Cowboy Ninja Viking, the title of which essentially sums up why comic books are for children.
