What is going on with people releasing games during the third week of November? Uh, hello, Super Mario Galaxy is coming out that week; talk about sent to die …

Midway is hoping that not everyone is interesting in hopping all around planets and making high-pitched whooping noises, and will be releasing their first-person shooter, BlackSite: Area 51, for the PC and Xbox 360 on November 12. While the PC and Xbox 360 versions have gone gold and are getting ready to ship, the PlayStation 3 version will have to wait; Midway says the game is schedule to ship in North America this December.

While many people will write off BlackSite as “another shooter with aliens,” I’ve had a blast playing areas beyond just what you see in the Xbox Live demo. The combination of the Unreal Engine 3.0 and Stranglehold‘s massive destruction make for a pretty game, with some intense and fun action moments. I’m not going to pretend the loss of online co-op hasn’t angered the Gods, though. It most certainly has.
