It’s packed this week. A veritable lucky dip of big releases across multiple different genres. You’ll most likely find something you love in this week’s batch of new releases, but there’s also sure to be something you’d rather ignore. Dishonored, XCOM, Pokemon Black & White 2. It’s a big week.
But it’s a strange week. Depending on your tastes it may be the week you spend all of your money, or the week where you take a quick gander, turn your nose up and say, ‘nah’…
Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition (PC)
What is it? A series based on a board game with a pretty fanatical following. Should you care? If you're into that sort of thing? Totally.
What is it? It’s a big one. Many people’s pick for possible game of the year. Should you care? Dishonored is bold and innovative, but pays homage to landmark games of the past. I think you have to play this one.
Fable: The Journey (360)
What is it? That Kinect Fable game everyone was disappointed to see at E3 a couple of years back. Should you care? I'm finding it difficult to get motivated for this one to be honest.
Myst 3D (3DS)
What is it? Myst. In 'glorious' 3D. Should you care? I had no idea this was coming out. But yeah, Myst is good.
Of Orcs And Men (PC)
What is it? An RPG of sorts. Should you care? I'm going to say no.
Pokemon Black and White Version 2 (DS)
What is it? It’s Pokemon. Should you care? You already know whether you care or not!
Rugby League Live 2 (360/PS3)
What is it? Strewth! It’s an Australian made NRL game that probably should have release a couple of weeks ago when we were all caught up in Grand Final fever. Should you care? If you’re a big fan of the sport, then I say yes. You should totally care.
Worms Revolution (PC)
What is it? It's worms. You know it. Should you care? Yeah, another Worms game.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? It’s probably the release you guys are all most excited about. A pretty big deal. Should you care? Not my cup of tea, personally. I just haven't spent enough time with the series. But yes, you should probably care. A lot. Actually, I should probably give it a bash regardless.
