New Releases: Week of December 1, 2014

Sun, 11/30/2014 - 19:33 — ChunkySoup

 November 30th 2014 marks the battle for one of the oldest sporting trophies in North America. The Grey Cup! The what now?! Unless you are Canadian, you have probably never heard of the Grey Cup, let alone the Canadian Football League. That’s ok. Yes, we do play football up here and no we did not copy the NFL, no we don’t play with polar bears nor do we throw baby seals instead of a ball (although our balls are bigger). At 102 years old The Grey Cup is more than double the age of the Super Bowl, and while I will admit the NFL sports a higher level of talent, the CFL is our game and as a nation we plan on getting a little rowdy. So I apologize for the noise in advance and would appreciate it if you let us sleep in a little on Monday.

So while I will be cheering on my Stampeders everyone else can read what this week holds for us gamers!

The Crew
Release Date: December 2nd, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One

See video

 The Crew is a driving MMO that lets you put together a clan (a crew)  that lets you race against other individuals and crews across 12 cities in the US spread across the east coast, the south, the midwest, in the mountains and the west coast. If I remember correctly the map is a compressed version of the US, but The Crew does allow you to drive across the continent - coast to coast - if you have the time (Someone needs to make a Cannonball Run race in this). Did anyone on 2old2play try out the beta? How was it? It reminds me a bit of Forza Horizon but on a broader scale. Am I right? Close but not really? Let me know in comments below as I would really like to know.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix
Release Date: December 2nd, 2014
Platforms: PS3

See video

 Kingdom Hearts has always intrigued me. I have much love for most things Disney, yet on the same coin I have an aversion to pretty much anything anime or manga. To make matters more confusing, as much as I love to play fighting games I am outrageously terrible at them. Maybe one day if I find it on sale I will give Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix a shot.

Terraria
Release Date: December 2nd, 2014
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

See video

 Yes, this has been out for a while on PS3 and XBox 360, but Terraria is coming to both the PS4 and XBox One in disc form. Mrs. Soup called the demo “Mario Bros. mixed with Minecraft”. If that sounds like your kind of thing you may want to check Terraria out.


Game of Thrones - A Telltale series - Episode 1
Release Date: December 2nd, 2014
Platforms: PC, Mac, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360*, Xbox One*

See video

 It’s Game of Thrones! It’s Telltale! If you ever wanted to dive deeper into George R.R. Martins medieval fantasy series here is your chance. While you don’t play as any of the 1000+ characters that inhabit either his books or the HBO series you will still interact with the major players. Given that Game of Thrones - A Telltale Series starts around the end of Season 3 of the HBO show and will end after it’s 6 episode arc just before Season 5 there are already a couple handfuls of characters that are dead. So if you were hoping to drown Viserys in gold yourself, you are out of luck.
*The Xbox versions release December 3rd

New Releases: Week of November 17, 2014

Mon, 11/17/2014 - 21:28 — SarcasmoJones

 Thanksgiving is still a few days away, unless you live in Canada and already had it, or live in some other country and don’t give a damn about Thanksgiving, but the stars of Black Friday are arriving this week. Several AAA titles dominate the list this week, but there are a few hidden gems on this list that no one will like, or play. Wow, the intro really suffers when you have a long list. Let’s get to it.

new-releases-banner.jpg

Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom
Release Date: November 18
Platform: 3DS

See video

This top-down game departure either indicates that developers are exploring new ways to present the Adventure Time universe or they are working on a greatly reduced budget. Judging from the ‘made in the garage’ feel of the trailer I’m going with the latter.

Company of Heroes: Ardennes Assault
Release Date: November 18
Platform: PC

See video

Just in time for the holidays...a WWII shooter for the PC. Lucky you.

Dragon Age: Inquisition
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, 360, PS4, PS3, PC

See video

 Bioware could have made another KOTOR 3, Mass Effect 4, or Baldur’s Gate III, but they made this instead. It has dragons, as the name implies.

Escape Dead Island
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: PS3, 360, PC

See video

 Dead Island 2 looks like it may have some potential, I wish I could say the same for this last-gen, graphically confused weirdo. Escape Dead Island needs to pick one style or another...you're not Quintin Tarantino. Does anyone else find it odd that Dead Island 2 will actually be the fourth game? Whatever, I’m waiting for some reviews before I blow the dust off my 360 for another Dead Island game.

Far Cry 4
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, 360, PS4, PS3, PC

See video


 Far Cry has finally moved away from island life and set up shop in Tibet, or at least some place that looks like Tibet. As good a the two Far Cry 3 games were, I’m very excited about #4. Plus they have elephants...elephants, I said!

Grand Theft Auto V
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, PS4, PC

See video

 So, is this the same game that snatched 2o2p’s GOTY 2013 honors? Well, kinda. Add a graphical update, all kinds of extra missions, and first person goodness and there may be enough here to warrant a fresh purchase on a current console.

Hatsune Miku-Project Diva-F 2nd
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: PS3, Vita

See video

What the fuck did I just watch? I would never review a game solely on a trailer, but that game is going to suck...probably.

The Jackbox Party Pack
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, PS4, PS3

See video

A five-in-one collection of party games, including You Don’t Know Jack 2015, Fibbage XL, Drawful, Lie Swatter and Word Spud. Sounds like a party, just add friends and tequila. If you don’t have friends, add more tequila.

LittleBigPlanet 3
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: PS4, PS3

See video

The third numbered installment of the popular Sony exclusive series, but with a bit of Fry and Laurie (see what I did there?)

Never Alone
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, PS4, PC

See video

This one has already won several awards and appears to be a good argument for the ‘video games as art’ argument. Kleenex sold separately. This game is also presented in several different ways, graphically, and even though I made fun of Escape Dead Island for the very same thing just a few short moments ago, it feels like a better fit here.

Rollers of the Realm
Release Date: November 18
Platform: PS4, Vita

See video

A Pinball RPG adventure game. This isn’t the merging of a couple of genres: it’s a grand collision. I’m not sure if I’m anticipating this game or if I’m apprehensive about it, but I’m going to give it a shot.

Super Smash Bros.
Release Date: November 21
Platform: WiiU

See video

 A WiiU game so big it will move gamers, it will move mountains...it will move consoles.

Watchdogs
Release Date: November 18
Platform: WiiU

See video

It looks a lot like the game I played on XB1...hooray for console parity!

WWE 2K15
Release Date: November 18
Platforms: XB1, PS4

See video

Get your wrassle on, brother!

New Releases: Week of November 10, 2014

Tue, 11/11/2014 - 20:57 — ErinAS

That awkward moment when you go to remind whatever lazy writer was on new releases that their article is overdue and you realize it's you! And for my penance, of course, this week all the things came out. I guess game companies think it's cool to have an 11/11 launch date.

new-releases-banner.jpg


Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: PC, XBone, PS4,(Unity) Xbox 360,PS3 (Rogue)


See video


See video


 Ubisoft has not one but two Assassin's Creed games launching on 11/11. The 7th title in the franchise, Unity, is for next gen and PC while the 8th, Rogue, hits 360 and PS3. They are two completely different but slightly related full games. Rob Zombie and Walking Dead co-creator put together an animated short to set the stage for the launch of Unity.

Digimon All-Star Rumble
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360


See video


PS3 and XBox 360 get the latest fighting game set in the Digimon universe from Bandai Namco this week.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms:Xbox One


See video


The ultimate Halo collection is available for the XBone. It features all 4 games “remastered” (which totally is not a word you should use for video games since there’s no actual mastering step involved in their production, Microsoft) and access to the beta for Halo 5 multiplayer.

Lego Batman Beyond Gotham
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, WiiU, 3DS, Xbox 360,Xbox One


See video


The 3rd Lego Batman hits all the platforms for 11/11. I hope this trailer is similar to how Affleck will play Batman in the upcoming Batman versus Superman!

Senran Kagura Bon Appetit!
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: Vita


See video


I’ll give this one direct from the Sony blog:
 "Fighting and cooking… while on the surface they seem worlds apart, if you study them closely, they are much the same. They both require dedication, concentration, creativity, and, of course, expert blade skills."

Shape Up
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: Xbox One


See video


 Ubisoft sure has been busy! In addition to the 2 AC games they have a new fitness game. This Kinect title attempts to gamify your workout putting you in the video game world while you jump around. It kinda looks like Double Fine’s Happy Action Theater for adults.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (WiiU) & Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS)
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: WiiU & 3DS


See video


See video

 My childhood feels wronged having a Sonic game be a Nintendo exclusive. In my mind he and Mario are still mortal enemies. Apparently there’s also a tie in cartoon which doesn’t air on Saturday mornings since apparently that’s no longer a thing either.

Tales of Hearts R
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: Vita


See video


Already available in Japan this RPG hits Vita this week.


Terraria
Release Date: November 11 and 14, 2014
Platforms:PS4,Xbox One


See video


 The popular action adventure sandbox game hits next gen consoles this week. PS4 gets it first.

Toy Box Turbos
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: PC


See video


 This cartoony racing game is on Steam this week with console release eventually to follow.

Tropico 5
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: Xbox 360


See video


 Wait, didn’t I already write about this game last time I was on new releases?! Apparently now in addition to PC it's available for XBox 360.

Pro Evolution Soccer
Release Date: November 11, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360,Xbox One


See video


 The 14th edition of the game known in Asia as World Soccer: Winning Eleven 2015 according to the wikipedia. Can you tell  I’m running out of steam all these releases?


World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor
Release Date: November 13, 2014
Platforms: PC and Mac


See video


 Blizzard’s another busy company this month. They announced their new title Overwatch last week and later this week the 5th expansion to their popular MMO will be available in stores and on servers.


This War of Mine
Release Date: November 14, 2014
Platforms: PC


See video


 This is a war game I might actually consider playing. Instead of playing as soldiers you play as a group of civilians in a war torn city doing whatever you can to survive. The gameplay focuses on resource management and gut wrenching life and death decisions.

New Releases: Week of November 2, 2014

Sun, 11/02/2014 - 21:53 — loki619

 It’s officially the start of November and, before I forget, I’d like to say what I’m thankful for since this month. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving… I’m thankful to be a gamer! There are so many awesome games coming out for just about every week this month that your wallet had better be ready, or you had better be ready to sell an organ or two, just to keep up with these great releases!

new-releases-banner.jpg

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Release Date: November 3, 2014 (Day Zero Edition), November 4, 2014 (The I had to wait for launch day edition)
Platforms: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4

See video

 The latest installment, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, brings us a whole new campaign with Kevin Spacey, Kevin Spacey, and Kevin Spacey. Blah, blah, pew, pew, pew, blah, blah, Kevin Spacey, blah, blah, pew, pew, pew, Kevin Spacey. Need we say more? Oh, and the exciting multiplayer of this franchise is back as well!

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Platforms: Wii U, Wii, 3DS

See video

 It’s Fire Season once again in Piston Peak Park and you get to save the day by using various different characters to fight fires, bulldoze debris, and drop smokejumpers into harm’s way.

Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Platforms: 3DS

See video

 Experience the role-playing farm simulation in 3D for the first time! Create your own unique farm and farmland with new and exciting innovations!

The Wolf Among Us
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4

The episodic graphic adventure comes to the Xbox One and PS4! Can you help solve the mystery?

New Releases: Week of October 27, 2014

Mon, 10/27/2014 - 16:39 — ChunkySoup

 Halloween is in full throttle mode ‘round Casa del Chunk. Mrs. Soup is in max overdrive, decorating the house to look decrepit and broken on the inside. The quest for the Souplets’ costumes was successful and the makeup they are planning looks grim. Looks like All Hallow's Eve will be another slam dunk this year. But what about this week's games?

new-releases-banner.jpg

NBA Live 15
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

See video

 It’s B-Ball season once again, and while 2K has been in news with the (in)ability to face scan in NBA 2K15, it looks like EA is bringing its ‘A’ game this year. NBA Live 15 is definitely a far cry from their last basketball game, and one of EA’s first: One on One Dr. J vs Larry Bird. (look it up...it’s a classic!)

WWE 2K15
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360

See video


 If you are awaiting the next gen version of “wrastlin’ you are going to have to wait 3 weeks longer. For those of you with last gen consoles, you are in luck as this year's version of the battle in the square circle is out this week. I have to admit that I haven’t watched WWE since my junior high days so I have no idea who these new guys are in WWE 2K15. I can say that they don’t seem as “out there” like guys like the Undertaker, The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, and others were. That’s a shame. What has wrestling come to?


Lords of the Fallen
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

See video


 Lords of the Fallen looks pretty. That’s about all I have, other than its medieval fantasy setting, penchant for massive weapons and monsters, and some punishing battles. If Dark Souls is your thing then you may want to give Lords of the Fallen a chance.


Sunset Overdrive
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
Platforms: Xbox One

See video


 So it looks like MS is really banking on this exclusive with the release of a limited edition white console (remember when all you haters bitched that the 360 only came in white?). I want this game to be f’ing awesome but to me this looks a lot like a shootier, jumpier, more rail grindier version of Dead Rising. Not that shootier, jumpier and rail grindier doesn't sound like fun, it's just that I have come to realize that as I get older I am beginning to suck at these types of games.


Big Hero 6: Battle in the Bay
Release Date: October 28th, 2014
Platforms: 3DS
http://nintendoeverything.com/wp-content/gallery/disney-big-hero-6-battle-in-the-bay/BigHero6_BattleInTheBay_3DS_Screen1.jpg


 This game is going to be terrible. The only reason I put it on this list is because the movie is going to be AWESOME! Seriously though, don’t buy this game for your kids...or someone else’s kids...or anyone else.

PS Honorable mentions
The PS3/PS4 version of Costume Quest 2 comes out this week as does Freedom Fighters for the Vita

New Releases: Week of October 13, 2014

Mon, 10/13/2014 - 22:03 — SarcasmoJones

The game industry just called to say that it was sorry for not putting anything out this summer and wants to make it up to us by releasing everything...this week. So put on a pot of coffee, get your good reading glasses out, and get comfortable because we have a metric fuck ton of releases to get through.

new-releases-banner.jpg


Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: PS3, 360, PC

See video

 Yeah, they’re still making Borderlands games. This one is a group effort centered around Handsome Jack’s rise to notoriety. There’s probably a bunch of guns and a spry and youthful Claptrap.

Duck Dynasty
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: XB1, 360, PS3, PS4, 3DS

See video

 Possibly the worst idea ever for a video game. Hunt, fish, and play with a bunch of rich, bearded rednecks.

The Evil Within
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: XB1, 360, PS3, PS4, PC

See video

 I had a chance to play a demo of this one at QuakeCon, and it’s a full-on survival horror badass from Tango Gameworks and Bethesda. Wear a diaper when you play this one, you big baby.

In Space We Brawl
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: PS3, PS4

See video

It’s a downloadable Sony-exclusive spaceship shooter...have fun with that.

Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: 360, PS3, WiiU, 3DS

See video

 I didn’t know that Pac Man was still a thing, but he has a new platformer and the trailer looks pretty good. Maybe I’ll buy the trailer.

Petz Beach/Petz Countryside
Release Date: October 14
Platform: 3DS

Nope.

Playstation TV
Release Date: October 14

See video

 Allows PS4 players to remote play their PS4 in another room, stream PS3 games, and watch tv...for $100.

Poptropica Forgotten Islands
Release Date: October 14
Platform: 3DS

See video

At least the trailer was mercifully short. Portable, kid-safe, mother-approved...don’t expect a review.

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus
Release Date: October 14
Platform: PS Vita

See video

I can’t pronounce the title but the boob physics look amazing. This is a Japanese fighting game with partial nudity and sexual themes. Pre-order now to have it delivered to your house in a plain, brown wrapper.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: PS4, XB1, PC

See video

Play as an undercover cop and infiltrate the Yakuza, or Triads, or whatever. The definitive edition includes all DLC from the old consoles and a fresh coat of HD paint for the new ones.

Tiers to Tiara 2:Heir of the Overlord

Release Date: October 14
Platform: PS3

See video

The trailer gave me a headache.

The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season
Release Date: October 14
Platform: XB1

See video

Relive the episodic story of Lee and Clementine, but on a better console.

Zen Pinball: South Park
Release Date: October 14
Platforms: XB1, 360, PS4, PS3, PC, Mac, Android, Amazon

 Go on down to South Park, play some Sarcastoball, and respect my fucking authority...you bastards.

Killer Instinct Season 2
Release Date: October 15
Platform: XB1

See video

TJ Combo, Spinal, and Maya join the KI roster for round 2.

Legend of Grimrock 2
Release Date: October 16
Platform: PC

See video

An epic island dungeon crawler for the discerning PC gamer.

Fable Legends Beta
Release Date: October 16
Platform: XB1

See video

Be the villain, be the hero, or alternate between the two. 4 player co-op versus a single master villain for epic 4v1 gameplay...interesting.

New Releases: Week of October 6, 2014

Mon, 10/06/2014 - 07:41 — ErinAS

Releases are definitely ramping up for the holiday season. This week holds one I’ve been waiting on for a while: Costume Quest 2. I’m also curious to see what kind of cool things might be coming out of Project Spark now that Microsoft is taking it out of beta. #shutupandmakemynewconkergame

new-releases-banner.jpg
 

Skylanders: Trap Team

Release Date: October 5, 2014
Platforms: PS3, PS4, WiiU, Wii, 3DS, Xbox 360,Xbox One, Android, FireOS, iOS

See video

The 4th Skylanders game, Trap Team, hits this weekend on all the platforms. Clearly the game also comes with a whole new set of figurines, because Activision knows how effective children are at whining until they get what they want from their parents.


Costume Quest 2

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS3, WiiU, Xbox 360,Xbox One

See video

As soon as this went up for pre-sale, I told Tim Schafer to shut up and take my money. This is the only RPG I’ve ever made it through all by myself (since its basically for babies). The original also gives me the honor of being the only one in the house to have a game with 100% of the achievements on PSN!


Alien Isolation

Release Date: October 7th, 2014

Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360,Xbox One

See video

Alien Isolation is a stealth horror FPS set more in the style of the original Ridley Scott movie than others in the franchise. You play as Ripley’s daughter, Amanda. Supposedly, it’s at least better than the last trash that was Aliens: Colonial Marines. My biggest shock was its published published by Sega. They’re still around?!


DRIVECLUB

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Platforms: PS4

See video


DRIVECLUB is a first party PS4 exclusive. Sony-owned Evolution Studios (who also brought you MotorStorm) developed the game. Europeans love their driving games so much that it will be available with black and white console bundles over there at launch.


NBA 2K15

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360,Xbox One

See video

This is the 16th NBA 2K game with soundtrack created by Pharrel Williams, including an interesting mix of bands. The game also has MyCareer, MyTeam, and MyPark modes as well as a companion mobile app.


Project Spark

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Platforms: Xbox 360,Xbox One

See video

In beta since December, Microsoft’s Project Spark opens up to the world this week. Project Spark allows players to create their own games and share things they created with other players. The E3 trailer also showed my favorite squirrel, Conker, who MS still hasn’t done much with since they purchased Rare. You can get Spark for XBox or PC and it interfaces with Smartglass for your mobile devices. It will be interesting to see what type of games and “indie economy” come out of this, and if the Mojang acquisition will tie back somewhere in here.


Styx: Master of Shadow

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

See video

This stealth game challenges you to become the master of infiltration. Its a prequel to Of Orcs and Men that establishes the Goblin Styx’ backstory.

New Releases: Week of September 22, 2014

Mon, 09/22/2014 - 20:30 — ChunkySoup

 I would love to blame the tardiness of this article on my birthday being this weekend and me getting completely blitzed and forgetting, but I can’t. Not because I am taking the high road but, sadly,  because I didn’t get drunk...not even a good buzz. I was having fun working on my RC car and doing a little homework.

 So yeah I suck but hey this week marks the first week of fall, which means we may see the conclusion of the Summer doldrums soon! Take this week for example: there are two main titles dropping this week, but If you have no interest in Disney, Marvel, or Soccer just stop reading now. That is unless you are infatuated with Japanese anime school girls or a WiiU owner then just skip past the first two.

Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Platforms: PS3, PS4, Vita, WiiU, Xbox 360,Xbox One


See video

 If you own a console then Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is coming your way! So this is a whole new game with all new Marvel characters that Disney owns and is milking the absolute shit out of. If you are not familiar with Disney Infinity, think Skylanders mixed with Minecraft in a way. You have the Disney (and now Marvel) characters in plastic toy form to place on a base and bring into the game. Once in, you can play the game or use them to build your own world. My kids had more fun collecting the figurines than playing the original game. We’ll watch and see how the superhero version does.

FIFA 2015
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, 3DS, Xbox 360,Xbox One


See video

 The Wii U got Disney, the 3DS got footy. I think that is back-asswards but at least every other freaking console has it too. If you are an obsessed  fan of “the beautiful game” or just not of North American descent then EA has released the game for you. FIFA 2015 brings soccer to the masses in HD animated glory for those with machines that can handle it.

Arcana Heart 3: LOVEMAX!!!!!
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Platforms: PS3, Vita


See video

 Arcana Heart 3: LOVEMAX!!!!! Yeah...anything with “love” in the title and that many exclamation marks makes me nervous. If you are familiar with Arcana Heart then you already know that is is a Japanese Anime School Girl 2D fighting game. As a 44 year old male I would feel dirty playing this game in public. Might be different if i was playing in the comfort of my own bathroom...I mean bedroom...I mean living room...sigh...that was probably oversharing.


Hyrule Warriors
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Platforms: WiiU


See video

 Link! Zelda! Midna! All Fighting waves of monsters and other baddies! Hyrule Warriors seems to be for those of you who have complained for the last two years that you have nothing to play on your Super XXL 3DS...sorry I mean WiiU.
