With heavy hitters like Titanfall 2 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition scheduled to release this week, it’s clear that the holiday gaming season has snuck up on us. But woefully, Halloween, isn’t receiving the respect it deserves. Beyond the recent release of Yomawari: Night Alone, the 3DS release of Corpse Party, and pair of Wii U downloadable titles, the scares are rather scarce this week. Perhaps the biggest fright might come from the sticker shock after seeing Titanfall 2 – Vanguard Collector’s Edition’s monstrous $250 MSRP.

Robert’s Pick: A half decade on, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains seated at the open-world fantasy throne, with few challengers even attempting to surmount its scope. It’s a game of truly defined immersion, able to mesmerize gamers for months, with its autonomous approach to play. This week, owners of Skyrim and all of its DLC automatically receive the Special Edition in the Steam account, a generous gesture from Bethesda.  Beyond delving into BlazBlue: Central Fiction, it’s where I’ll be spending the bulk of my free time.

  1. Couple of generic girls this week. Must be a slow week for lolis;

  2. I wonder how much profit a $250 collector’s edition makes. I’m guessing that $175 of that is pure profit.

  3. I like physical copies, but it seems like SteamWorld Collection’s games are a lot more expensive on disk.

    🙁

  4. Wait, you’re not pissed that Bethesda isn’t giving out review copies on day one?

    What’s wrong with yon man?

  5. Owlboy looks cool. Are you going to review it?
