Releases are still barely trickling in during the summer drought. Once again, we have nada for next gen and mostly ports from other platforms.


Sacred 3

Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360[width=650,height=366]

Co-op is king in the third installment of the franchise from Deep Silver. This hack and slash RPG requires you to bring a team along, whether it be online co-op with IRL friends or a trio of AI allies. You’re fighting enemies as a team as well as engaging in friendly competition with your party over who gets the most kills, etc.


Table Top Racing

Release Date: August 5th, 2014
Platforms: Vita[width=650,height=366]

Originally released for iOS and Android this game is making its way to the Vita this week. According to the developer’s website:

Table Top Racing is a console quality, miniaturised combat-racer for gamers! If you ever used to love Micro Machines or Mario Kart, then this is for you. The cars are bonkers, the competition is fierce, the action relentless. Hook up against 4 'frienemies' over game centre or local wi-fi and battle for glory. Win coins, upgrade your vehicles and unlock new cars and challenges!

Bonkers huh?!  And I’m pretty sure that’s not how you spell frenemy, silly British people…


Ultra Street Fighter IV

Release Date: August 5th, 2014
Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360[width=650,height=366]

This updated version was originally released in arcades in Japan earlier this year; adding 6 stages and 5 new characters.  For console and PC it’s both available on its own and as a DLC update to Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. So, including plain old un-super Street Fighter IV, there are in fact now 4 versions of version 4.
