Oh wow. It's here. It's finally here!
It's been far too long between Metal Gears. I am ready for this. I am so ready.
This week is probably the biggest week in games so far this year. Metal Gear Solid 5 leads the pack, but chasing up the rear is Armello and Mad Max. A good week for games, a bad week for your wallet.
Act of Aggression (PC)
What is it? A kinda high budget, high production values Command & Conquer style RTS. Should you care? For folks that want that C&C feeling back.
What is it? Hey Armello is out this week! This is an Australian made, super good looking RPG with board game mechanics. Should you care? Well worth checking out. Looks fantastic.
Disney Infinity 3.0 (Xbox One/PS4/360/PS3/Wii U)
What is it? It's the Disney attempt to get that Skylanders money, mark three. Should you care? Apparently this is pretty good and polished. The ship has sailed for me, but your mileage may vary.
What is it? A brutally difficult platformer that looks fun. Should you care? For fans of Super Meat Boy. It's that kind of thing.
Mad Max (Xbox One/PS4)
What is it? It's the Mad Max game that looks quite good. Should you care? There's a feeling it's gonna get lost in the Metal Gear hype, but this will still find a big audience I think.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Xbox One/PS4)
What is it? Oh man, I am excited about this. It's possibly the last Metal Gear Solid game, very likely the last Hideo Kojima directed Metal Gear Solid game. Should you care? Absolutely. All signs point to (bizarre) greatness.
What is it? "[A] virtual place where memories change to dreams and the only possible way is forgetting, which becomes a mechanism for proceeding to the next layer of dreams." Alrighty then. Should you care? This looks weird enough to be interesting. In motion it's actually amazing.
What is it? An isometric point and click horror game that looks sort of spectacular. Man the voice acting seems good. Should you care? Man, I think I have to play this now. Looks incredible.
What is it? A twin-stick shooter with some pumping beats. Should you care? You are spoiled for choice in this genre, but it looks good.
Did we miss anything? What are you picking up this week?
