New Game Releases: November 10th-16th, 2016

With an Assassin’s Creed anthology and sequels in the Dishonored and Watch Dogs franchises, November is trotting out a number of heavy hitters. Customary for this time of the Holiday shopping season, the simultaneous release of so many triple-A titles means that some games won’t earn the undivided attention of the gaming public. As such, at some of this month’s competitors, are bound to become January’s clearance-bin fodder. You have to wonder if this kind of risky, blockbuster-seeking approach is the best bet for publishers.

Robert’s Pick: Sure, not giving the nod to Watch Dogs 2 or Dishonored 2 might seem a little strange, but with the launch issues that plagued the original Watch Dogs and Dishonored 2’s purported framerate woes, I’m going to adopt a wait-and-see approach on both. Instead, I’ll be  playing it safe by opting for Root Letter (or √Letter)- the inaugural release in the Kadokawa Game Mystery series. Already receiving glowing reviews in the EU, the visual novel tasks players with uncovering the disappearance of Aya, a schoolgirl who went missing after receiving an enigmatic letter.

  1. First I’ve heard about the Dishonored 2 framerate issues. Source?

    • I saw a number of people on Reddit saying the same thing as well as some streamers.

      Too bad Bethesda is being douchey about review copies. Giving the game to streamers but holding on to reviewers seems sketchy.

  2. What’s with all the “Kutar” games?

  3. I’m hoping there’s a black friday deal on Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection.

  4. The first Wash Dogs was disappointing. Not what UBI showed at E3.

  5. Any one know what’s the best price for Dishonored 2 on PC?

  6. Root Letter for me this week. Are you going to review it?

  7. I’ll be getting Watch Dogs 2 this week. I loved the first oe. Ran great on my PC.
