New Game Releases: Nov. 30th-Dec. 6th, 2017

December’s chilly temperature often mean it’s time to bundle up. And with the re-release of Horizon Zero Dawn, Dead Rising 4, and Steep, its also the approach that publishers are taking. Each has been repackaged with additional content, hoping to sweeten the proposition on these previously released titles. A similar approach applies to Doom VFR, which revises about a quarter of campaign from the 2016 release, while adding support for Vive Headsets and PSVR. Just hours before launch, creator Valve patched the SteamVR beta channel to let Rift owners in on the remix.

Robert’s Pick: More than likely, they’ll be a lot of debate this week over how Xenoblade Chronicles 2 looks in undocked form.  When juxtaposed against Splatoon 2 or Super Mario Odyssey the open-world, action role-playing game doesn’t look quite as nice. But that’s ok, because Monolith Soft’s third entry extends an intriguing story, exquisite art design, and a plethora of content to explore.

  1. Wait, so DOOM VFR does support the Rift?

    I’m confused by the whole thing and frankly don’t want to be support companies that fail to make it clear whether the game will work on a certain system.

    • Avoid it for now. It’s an unpolished mess. Audio has all kind of bugs. Teleporting or short burst movement only, and gun angles that are super frustrating.

  2. I just bought XC2 from Best Buy.

    The last at the pickup counter called another employer asking to bring up a “Exeno Blades Something”

    It took 20 minutes for them to figure it out.

    Thanks, Japan!

  3. Bomberman ’93 is older than me, if it was really released in 1993.

  4. Bomberman ’93 is older than me, if it was really released in 1993.

  5. Doom VFR is only 25% of the game? That’s disappointing. Can someone confirm?

    • Yes, it’s true. But I don’t really know how much time you want to spend playing DOOM in VR, so it kind of works out.
