New Releases: Week of November 27th, 2022


We are past Black Friday, America’s holiday shopping frenzy, but here’s more ideas for gifts for the gamer in your life. There's lots of options including some VR, soccer, and SaGA! Also a driving game that lets you speed around fake Chicago (it must be fake since the traffic stopped long enough for anyone to speed!).


Soccer Story

Release Date: November 27, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4/PS5, XBO/X   


You play as the savior of soccer after an evil corporation (which totally isn’t FIFA) closes every soccer stadium and local tournament in the world! A magical soccer ball has chosen you, are you up to the challenge to score your ultimate goal?


Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

Release Date: November 30, 2022

Platforms: PC (XBX/S TBD) 


The latest installment in the franchise is 4 player co-op against waves of AI enemies. You can create your character and there will be secondary objectives in each area to ensure more gameplay than previous titles offered.


Sword of the Vagrant

Release Date: December 1, 2022

Platforms: NS, PS4 (PS5 TBD), XBO    


In this 2D hack and slash you play as Vivian trying to understand your lost father’s research. The animations are beautifully hand painted.


Romancing SaGa - Minstrel Song - Remastered

Release Date: December 1, 2022

Platforms: PC, NS, PS4/6, Mobile 0   


Mostly I just like their camel casing of SaGa. It's a remaster that boasts new gameplay elements and quality of life features (though they don’t specify whose life).


The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution

Release Date: December 1, 2022

Platforms: VR Oculus, (PS VR coming soon)  


This wins for the longest title this week! It takes place after the first game and includes some new weapons and laser sights for better aiming. Is that trailer voice supposed to Merle? If it is, does he have a cold?


The Callisto Protocol

Release Date: December 2, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4/5, XBO/X/S   


From one of the directors of Dead Space, you and your partner were making one last freight run before retirement but instead ended up trapped in a prison full of diseased inmates. Sounds like fun for the whole family!


Marvel’s Midnight Suns

Release Date: December 2, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4/5, XBO/X/S   


In this game you will take on the role of “The Hunter” a customizable superhero created in collaboration with Marvel for the game. You’ve got Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Spiderman, Deadpool, Dr. Strange and many more to join you.


Need for Speed Unbound

Release Date: December 2, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS5, XBX/S    


I recently played the point-n-click adventure game Justin Whack and the Big Time Hack. I was not a big fan but now I can’t hear the word unbound without the weird robot accent of the villains in the game. Anywho Need for Speed Unbound (or to the cool kids NFS Unbound) is the first main game developed in the franchise since 2012. The map is based on a fictional Chicago named Lakeshore City. I hope there’s a game play element where people get lost trying to figure out if they are supposed to be on Lower or Upper Wacker. And if you get anywhere near Jane Byrne interchange the game ends when you die from sitting in endless traffic or taking the wrong exit because half of them are closed..
