Following an agonizing eight year, two console generation hiatus, historical simulation Romance of the Three Kingdoms returns, shepherding in a selection of new releases. If a recreation of Luo Guanzhong essential text isn’t your thing, fear not- there are plenty of other offerings, from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars appearance on Wii U to Carmageddon: Max Damage’s port to now-gen consoles.

Robert’s Pick: Waaaay back in the 90’s, my strategic skills were born with two Koei titles: Nobunaga’s Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms. While other simulation-based franchises have come and gone (oh, SimCity and Stronghold, what happened to you?), I’ve always returned to these historical-based epics. Between the customary campaign and a new hero mode that teaches players about the intricacies of first-century Chinese geopolitics, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII undoubtedly delivers a lot of bang for its sixty bucks.

  1. I’m kind of surprised you didn’t pick Hyperdimension Neptunia as your pick.

  2. I remember the original Carmageddon. I wonder if this one is any good.

  3. Never played a Romance of the Three Kingdoms game. Looked kind of boring to me.

  4. I remember spending some time Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars way back when. Might have been my first RPG.

  5. The Banner Saga 2 seems like it should be played on PC. Anyone play the console version of the original game?

  6. Where’s the Star Ocean review?

  7. Why no loli this week? Just hardened Asian dude.

  8. No Vita game this week? Call off the 4th.

  9. You forgot to mention that the regulations Mega dimension Neptune is coming out this week. 40% off first week.

  10. No Sonicomi pic? What gives?

  11. Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13 review this week?

    Please?

    Pretty Please!
