This Week In Games: Remastered, Re-Released

This year feels like it's been a bit bland so far, at least in terms of big, new releases. This week is no different. My most anticipated game of this week? Ori and the Blind Forest. God damn that game looks amazing.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue (PC)

What is it? The last-gen Assassin's Creed that some thing is better than Unity. Should you care? Fans of the series might get a kick out of this. Mainly because it was totally forgotten about, which is a shame.

Cities: Skylines (PC)

What is it? It's the Sim City thing that isn't Sim City. Should you care? If you're after a game like Sim City that isn't Sim City, then this might be your thing.

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition (Xbox One/PS4)

What is it? One of them there fancy re-releases with better visuals. Should you care? This game was sorely unappreciated upon its initial release. Give it a shot.

Ori and the Blind Forest (Xbox One/PC)

What is it? A beautiful looking action platformer. I know I throw around the word 'beautiful' a lot, but this time it's justified. Should you care? I really need to play this game.

Parallax (PC)

What is it? A first-person puzzle game in stark black and white. It looks gorgeous. Should you care? Looks pretty cool. And mind-bendingly difficult.

Sid Meier's Starships (PC)

What is it? It's a Sid Meier game! Surprise! (I forgot this was coming out.) Should you care? I'm sure this will be at the very least worth checking out.

Soccertron (PC)

What is it? It's soccer, but it's neon. (It's a new same-screen sports game thing.) Should you care? This same screen sports game thing is almost a little played out, but it's so much fun. I'm keen on this.

Tennis Elbow 2013 (PC)

What is it? A tennis game! That's like a sim? On PC? Man, this is weird. I like it. Should you care? I'm super keen on this. Apparently it's pretty good.

Did we miss anything? What are you planning to buy this week?


    Definitely going to be getting Ori and the blind forest. With the DMC re-release, is there any additional information about the DmC4 special edition release date?

    Hotline Miami 2 anyone? ;)

    Looks like I'll not be getting anything this week. Fine with me. I'm really enjoying going through raid mode in Resident Evil Revelaitons 2!

    I can't commit to ANYTHING knowing FF Type 0 is so close.

      FFXV demo!

        Is a nice little addition to a game I've been waiting years for.

        Get your priorities straight, man! *turns up nose*

          Yeah, Type-0 is a nice little addition to a demo for a game I've been waiting years for!


            You are a sick, sick man. You need help, you really do.


    Starships looks promising but I think I'll wait and see since people seemed to be disappointed with Beyond Earth. It's reminded me, again, that I am yet to buy GalCiv III.

    Other than that, waiting for Rogue to get ported to current gen. I keep thinking I'm over remasters etc but on the other hand, there are some games I missed first time around...

    If you haven't played Rogue, you really should. I'm tempted to pick it up again for PC, since I gave away my 360...

    I cant play room is full of dust and it irritates my eye's....especially when the monkey dude dies.

    Looking forward to Flame Over on the Vita, via the PSN Store... looks like alot of fun...

    I managed to buy Hotline Miami 2 off of Steam without the use of a vpn, so far everything seems alright, just hope i can download it, being as it's unavailable to buy in Australia it might not be uploaded to an aussie server.

    I know the devs just said to pirate it but i still wanted to give them my money.

      Yeah I bought the physical Limited Edition and the Kickstarter action figure. Well and truly given them my money for the game.

    Was going to pick Ori up straight away, but seeing as I'm slowly making my way through Rayman Legends, I may just wait and pick it up at a later date.

    Can't wait for Borderlands THC this month though. Gahh.

    Skylines actually looks pretty good. Worth noting this isn't the same series or devs as the Cities: XL games - these are the Cities in Motion guys, and I hear those games were pretty good.

    Also this week:
    Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky (PS3)
    "The third episode in the Dusk series tells the story of two young girls who take to the Dusk Seas in search of their dreams. Continue the cult-classic adventure in the latest chapter of the Atelier legacy."

    Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters (PS3 & PSV)
    "One day, a transfer student arrives at Kurenai Academy in Shinjuku. During a tour of the school with the class president, Sayuri Mifune, they spot a ghost — a girl in a white dress. Moments later, an evil ghost in a red coat appears and attacks them…"

    Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition (PS3, PS4)
    "This Ultimate Edition contains the thrilling main game as well as 9 additional DLC packs, including the biggest environments yet. Includes free updates to main game and six new multiplayer maps."

    Flame Over (PSV)
    "Blending top down ‘squirt ‘em-up’ action with Roguelike RPG mechanics, Flame Over features fast-paced fire-fighting thrills, randomly generated levels, and four deadly game zones! Guide firefighting hero, Blaze Carruthers, in a race against time and near-certain death!"

    Cities Skylines for me, made with help from Paradox Interactive, looks very good. Plus they always keep improving a game after launch.
