New Releases: Week of November 8th, 2020

Coffee Memoirs: Who here has been waiting for … THE NEXT BIG THING?  Well…this year we have learned not to hold our breath for many a thing… unless you are running in and out of a crowded space and forgot a mask.  High on that list of BIG of things are the consoles, Cyberpunk, the bars to fully open and the end of this fucking year already. 

So, the consoles.  Don’t be that guy… standing in line at your store of choice on release day.  Because it IS NOT a choice.  The console supplies are currently SOLD OUT.  Both the Xbox and Playstation supplies have been depleted in similar fashion to a bunch of middle-aged women trying to get concert tickets for the now much older N-Sync to see their childhood idols.  (I know… allowed it, went to it, stood 6 rows from the front and caught a torn sweaty shirt to pass to my wife.  If that doesn’t make me a good husband I am going to hell.)  If you didn’t already preorder one, your only chance for anything slightly near launch day is dealing with a dirty dirty console scalper.  Don’t go and get fooled with a scam in your desperation, they charge too much and like selling boxes filled with similar weight garbage fire.

The great??? Console war of 2020.  Which friends SIDE will you choose?  How much longer till we can just pick a console and play with all the friends instead?  We already know they are capable pending which game, so why not already?

New games and a bunch of re-releases for the consoles because they want you to think there is more.  Don’t buy your games a 2nd time guys.

Mature statement warning - So this is going to be rather bold and twisted but the best “anal’ogy I could come up with to describe how much there is this week is … its fuller than a pornstar’s asshole.  So, I am going to do some picking and choosing on what’s below.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Release Date:
November 10, 2020 (November 12, 2020 for PS5)
Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, XSX

Flying heads, limbs, loot, sneaking, exploration and stealing territory are all par for the course if you are a Viking trying to earn his way into Valhalla.  Will the gods invite you to their domain or are you just going to bash the door their down and say, “WTF guys… I couldn’t wait any longer!”  Be a badass, become the LEGEND.

The Falconeer
Release Date:
November 10, 2020
Platforms: PC, XBO, XSX

19 individuals performing different jobs have led to this Indie title having an opportunity to shine.  One of which is their office doggo Bella...she gets paid in treats and belly rubs.  Flying combat simulation with an in-game wingman.  Take on missions, defend the kingdom and upgrade your skills.  It looks pretty…

Release Date
: November 10, 2020
Platforms: PC, MAC, PS4, XBO, Switch

Rhythm games have been a thing for a few years now but I think this is the first one that lets you mix tracks as a DJ?  Could be a fun way to chill at home with all your corona friends, masks off and glow sticks high… puff puff pass in true concert fashion.

Gears Tactics
Release Date
: November 10, 2020
Platforms: XBO, XSX

This is not the Gears of War we grew up on unless you just like the story.  Tactics in turn-based fashion, move your units and plan your attack, then see your enemies counter and you have an oh shit moment.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Release Date:
November 12, 2020
Platforms: PS4, PS5

Platform adventure game for Sony.  Looks like a wholesome game for the kids despite what may come to mind from purely reading the title of the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Release Date:
November 13, 2020
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX

Call of Duty fast paced action first person shooter in Cold War era fashion.  Enough said…? Wait… are those za za zommmmbieeeees?!?
