New Releases: Week of June 30, 2014

Its a good thing there was a Steam sale going on the last few weeks since its slim pickings to kick off July. Sarcasmo was right about E3 kicking off the summer drought! I really had to scour the net to find anything to write about. Still no exciting next gen titles to take advantage of the systems’ new features. Though at least a few of these are available on PS4 and Xbox One, just not exclusives. The only one that sounds interesting to me, I basically already own...


Divinity Original Sin

Release Date: June 30, 2014
Platforms: PC[width=650,height=366]

Kickstarter funded, this game has been pushed back a few times but is slated to finally hit PC on June 30th.  Its an RPG by Larian Studios with single and multi-player modes. The game is a prequel to Divine Divinity which Larian released in 2002.


Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition


Release Date: July 1/2, 2014
Platforms: PS4, WiiU, Xbox 360, Xbox One[width=650,height=366]

This game hits PS4 a day early and then all the XBoxes and WiiU the following day. The original game was pretty fun so probably worth picking up this enhanced edition if you haven’t already played. From an update on from Drinkbox on the PS4 blog:

Some things we’ve added: more words to the title, an extra save slot, new costumes, creepy hanging dolls, two extra levels, new and improved enemies, another save slot, a new dimension-switching ability called “Shadow Swap,” chicken egg bombs, an NPC with an impossibly large head, and a power called INTENSO.


Child of Light

Release Date: July 1, 2014
Platforms: Vita[width=650,height=366]

Ubisoft’s Child of Light arrived for consoles in North America in April but this week it will also be available for the PSVita. Its a side-scrolling RPG with a dreamscape art style.


Sniper Elite III

Release Date: July 1, 2014
Platforms: PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One[width=650,height=366]

How “elite” can it be if there are three? Although in their defense all three games follow the story of the same character Karl Fairburne. He’s a German American OSS officer embedded into German forces during World War II. Snipers and stealth aren’t my style but the bullet time features look pretty cool if you’re into that sort of thing.
