Hey everyone -- there's a Battlefield games coming out this week! I know. It's March right? What is this? Tipsy topsy world? Are we in an alternate dimension where it rains donuts and hamburgers eat people?
Sadly no. This is real life. But still: there's a Battlefied game that isn't about shooting people in the Middle East. This is about cops and robbers and motorbikes. Good times.
Also, Mario is having another party. Dude likes to get plastered. Everyone is invited. If they have a Wii U. So yeah... might not be as 'populated' as his other parties. Also -- not much on Steam this week. Except a big pile of weird garbage.
Battlefield Hardline (Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? It's Cops and Robbers! Only with guns. And in the Battlefield style. Should you care? I really commend Visceral for doing something bold with the Battlefield series. Worth checking out for that alone.
Bladestorm: Nightmare (Xbox One/PS4)
What is it? It's a new game in the Bladestorm series. Not too sure about this one. Should you care? Previous games in the series weren't really up to scatch. Not too invested in this new one.
Mario Party 10 (Wii U)
What is it? Mario is having a party and everyone with a Wii U is invited. It's um... an exclusive party. Should you care? These games are rarely bad, but never seem to set the house on fire. Does have amiibo functionality. Finally a reason to own all those toys currently making you broke.
What is it? An interesting looking zelda-wonderboy effort, set in a 3D environment. Looks gorgeous. Should you care? I'm a sucker for games like these. It doesn't look perfect, but might be a bit of a sleeper. Check it out if you're a big Zelda fan.
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? An episodic horror game set in the Resident Evil Universe. Should you care? I honestly haven't been keeping track of this. I'm hearing it's not that great.
Ride (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4)
What is it? A proper motorcycle simulator. To be honest I don't think we have a game like that right now. Good gap to plug. Should you care? That being said, I haven't heard too much about this, which is usually a bad sign. Perhaps for motorcycle enthusiasts only.
Tokyo Twilight: Ghost Hunters (PS3/PS Vita)
What is it? I feel like this game should really be a shit show on the Discovery Channel. It's not. It's a Japanese visual novel style thing. Should you care? Nah. It's not very good.
