The Latest

New Game Releases: Oct. 26th-Nov. 1st, 2017

While Hollywood tends to dump its discards during the last week of October, it’s that time of year that the game publishers issue their heavy hitters. As such, the seven days sees the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Super Mario Odyssey, wreaking havoc on schedules on wallets alike. But even interactive media seems to be learning a few things from the film industry. Filler like the re-issue of two Kinect titles, now with standard input methods shoehorned in, will be making its way on store shelves, making for a trick rather than a treat.

Robert’s Pick: As a kid, Halloween revolving the allure of begging for candy. As an adult, the delights are even sweeter, with the release of both Summon Night 6: Lost Borders and Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection happening on All Hallows’ Eve. Yet, somewhat surprisingly, those aren’t my most anticipated releases, with Super Mario Odyssey’s arrival having me hopped up like a trick-or-treater who just ate a plastic pumpkin’s worth of snack-size Kit Kats.

  1. Waiting for more PC performance data before committing to Assassin’s Creed Origins. Ubi doesn’t have the best record for these things.

  2. Downloading Wolfenstein II right now. 23 minutes until it’s Nazi killing time.

  3. Been playing SMO all morning. I absolutely love it. I’m only putting it down since my Switch battery and power bank are no empty.

    • I can’t wait to play it. I probably should have bought digital but I wanted to save 12 bucks and get a $10 voucher.

  4. Grabbed Odyssey digitally this morning before work. Slow ass Switch download speeds means it was done downloading while I was getting ready. I can’t connect to work wifi, either.

  5. Bubsy is back? Did anyone ask for his return?

  6. Spintires: MudRunner is also coming to PC.
