Atlus to put out 101 games for $0.20 each

by: Randy -
That headline's slightly misleading--so I'll let Atlus do the math for us:  101 games on a single cartridge at $19.99 equals $0.20 per game.  It's called 101-in-1 Explosive Megamix (which sounds like it belongs on the shelf right next to Now That's What I Call Music), it's coming to the Nintendo DS, and will present all manner of mini-game types.  Puzzles, sports, racing, cooking, shooting, balancing, juggling, shooting hoops, shooting paintballs, sticking sushi, dodging fish, etc.  101-in-1 launches April 21.

P.S.: Atlus--fine, go ahead and break out of your niche by publishing a cartridge full of 20-cent games; start up an Atlus Online, too, why not?  But where the heck did the old Atlus press release writers go?  They used to put out genuinely hilarious news blasts.  These new Atlus PR writers are all...extra-average.  (Uh, no offense to the current PR folks.  Sort of.)
