New Releases 10/25-10/31: By the Numbers Edition

It’s time to test your intellect! We’ll issue a code for a Xbox 360 game to the first person who comes up with the correct answer to our enigma. First, multiply the total number of games on our release list by the number of mini-games found in Atlus’ upcoming Wii release. Then, subtract 10 for every instance of Ben 10 on the list. Now, add in any numbers found in the titles of this week’s Xbox 360 releases. Finally, subtract 20 for each instance of ‘Z’ found in the PSP release list, to calculate your answer.

DesertEagle’s Pick: As a long time fan of the series, I’m eagerly anticipating the next installment of Ratchet & Clank. While previous iterations slowed a bit when the little robot was on-screen, Clank’s time-manipulating ability feels surprisingly fun.

TideGear’s Pick: I’ve seen nothing of Adventures to Go since E3 ’09. I had to Google it to remember what it is. That said, being a fan of Rogue-recreations, I love the phrase “randomly generated dungeons”. Combine that with”SRPG” and I’m quite interested!

SeanNOLA’s Pick: I have never found myself enjoying any of the games in the music franchise, but ever since playing the demo at my local game shop,
 can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of DJ Hero.  Adventures to Go was one of my
secret favorite games of E3.  I only got to play it for a moment, while DesertEagle and TideGear were distracted by Squishy Tanks, but what I played was
addictive.  Let’s hope the retail version stands up to the 5 minute

  1. That’s some serious math!

    Tekken 6 for me.

  2. 7410?

    Ratchet and Clank: CiT!!!

  3. 7380.

    Forza 3 here.

  4. 7048?

    Man, that’s devious!

  5. I got -52!!!

    I still need to get Borderlands.

    I might get Gay Tony. The game, people, the game.

  6. Forgot the numbers. It’s too early, and I suck at math.

    I want DJ hero, but I’m not spending $120 to play it. I’ll wait for a price drop.

  7. -48 is the answer.

    I might get the whole Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City disk to save room on the HD.

  8. That Tekken 6 shot looks nice.


  9. I though Adventures on the Go is the perfect name for games you play on the toilet!

  10. “Madagascar Kartz”

    Why, Activision, why?

  11. -42

    Atlus doesn’t put out mini-games. Is that the trick?

  12. Dj hero is more lame than game. Good luck selling that one.

    Atelier Annie: Alchemist of Sera Island, if it get a good score. You’ve reviewing it, right DE?

  13. No idea on the question. Has Jigsaw taken over the New Releases?

    Tekken 6 and R&C for me.

  14. This is the week were Kid’s game take over and crap on the new release list.

  15. Never heard of Adventures To Go. Thanks for the heads-up, TideGear!

  16. LOL. Good one.


  17. Overlooking Torchlight is an auto-fail.

  18. At least you got the names right. Shacknews has “The Ballad of Gay TOY” as a new release. Singing dildos FTW!

  19. 7120

    Thanks for the game, I really liked it.

  20. 7048 by my calculations.

    Forza Motorsport 3

  21. Ive heard Fairytale Fights isn’t too good, but the idea of being a little ginger girl and beating the life out of people is somewhat appealing.

  22. The $200 Renegade edition has the word “sucker” clearly written on the box.

  23. The old Tekken man looks kinda plastic. I’m worried now.

  24. You forgot about Jurassic the Hunted

    7120 is my final answer.

  25. The King of Iron Fist Tournament returns! Hell yes!

  26. Tekken 6 for sure. My favorite fighting game.

  27. Because it will still still well. Expect an Ice Age Racerz as well.

    Kids must love the letter Z.

  28. For the answer- 7260

    For the pickup- Ratchet and Clank.

  29. Ratchet and Clank, I want you!

  30. I checked out an Adventures to Go video. Doesn’t look too good.

  31. 7110.

    Just getting Ballad of Gay Tony this week.

  32. Is SeanNOLA still calculating the problem? LOL.

    I’m thinking about Tekken. Its wait for a few more review.

  33. is there a deal on Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, or is it $40?

  34. The answer to the enigma is 7049.

    And nice releases this week! I’m really looking forward to DJ Hero and am somewhat interested in both GTA Episodes.

  35. yeahhh I cannot wait for the last Ratchet & Clank aswell!

  36. Congrats, Cleaner7 got the answer correct!

    71 game x 101 mini-games – (10×5) + 28 – (20×5)=7049

  37. Ratchet and Clank for me!

  38. Hey, I emailed the answer, so technically I was first!

  39. A few good games but no money.

  40. Good job, how the hell did you figure that out?

  41. Atelier Annie: Alchemist of Sera Island might be worth a go!

  42. Hmm, a lot of choice this week!

  43. I might TRY DJ Hero, but unless a copy falls out of the sky, I’m not going to keep a copy.

  44. Nice! I checked my answer a few times to make sure I had it and then I searched to see if anyone else posted it which they didn’t. Looking forward to an email with the code! 🙂

  45. Cleaner7: Look for a Han Tao code later on tonight.

    RogerDodger: I’ll be sending you a Gears 2 Theme code as well.

  46. Where’s NOLA?

  47. I’d have to be dumber than a 5th grader to waste money on a grade show video game.

  48. Good Job.

    I’m getting Tekken 6 hopefully.

  49. Great contest. I need to check this sooner.

    Ratchet for me.

  50. I though Tekken was also coming out for PSP

  51. Intelligent Zombie

    Nov. 23rd or so…

  52. You should do these games more often. Even if I don’t win, it was fun!

  53. Just GTA-Gay Tony for me.

  54. I cant believe more people aren’t getting Forza 3.
