New Releases 2/13-2/19: Outatime Edition

Following Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown’s and Marty McFly’s tweaking of the space-time continuum, most of this week’s new releases seem from a different era. From a spiritual successor to 1987’s Contra, two role-playing recreations from the mid-90’s and an update to 2000’s Capcom/comic book crossover, the only thing missing is a cameo by Adol Christin and Dogi. Wait, they’re back as well? Someone shut that flux capacitor down, pronto.

The Silver Lining- Episode III: My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate

DesertEagle’s Pick: This Valentine’s day, why not give that special someone a present bound to last longer than a box of See’s chocolates or a dozen roses? Yep, I’m talking about the gift of Denim (Powell), star of Tactics Ogre. With a subtitle like Let Us Cling Together, I can’t think of a better game to cuddle up with.

SeanNOLA’s Pick: I suppose this week is not so much about which game I’ll pick, but rather what team I’ll pick in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.  The answer? Deadpool, Tron Bonne and Spider-Man.

    Is Hard Corps: Uprising coming for the PS3?

    Oh, and first, beotches!

  2. Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. I cant wait!

  3. Desert, I can’t believe you didn’t give Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation the pick. That’s one people haven’t played in this country.

  6. MvC3 is all I need to live.

    Maybe Dragon Quest VI. I need a new DS game.

  8. The Silver Lining- Episode III: My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate is a totally made up name. I can feel it.

  9. Nothing for me this week.

  10. This week’s releases show some tail. Nice.

  11. I might be interested in Back to the Future depending on the price of each episode.

  12. Cuddling up with a game on Valentines is just pathetic.

  16. I’ll be picking up my Hyperdimension Neptunia preorder.

  17. A lot of old school role playing this week.

  18. Theres been a lot of Y’s but I’ll still probably pick up I&II

  19. My fresh out of the dryer clothes love to play “Let Us Cling Together”

  20. Just found out that the local game store by my apartment broke street date on MvC3. Unfortunately, I’m not anywhere near my apartment :-\

  21. RUN HOME, NOLA, RUN!

  22. How much do you get paid to plug Back to the Future?

  23. Not enough to qualify it for pick-of-the-week.

  24. HA! Nice zinger

  25. Just Hyperdimension Neptunia for me, dood!

  26. Dungeon Raiders looks kind of Zeldaish.

  27. LOLed at the gift of Denim joke. Nice one, Desert.

  29. Has anyone given a list for all the Marvel vs. Capcom characters?

  30. Dragon Quest VI and Ys I&II.

    Yes, it’s that kind of week!

  31. Where’s Karnov and Samurage’s picks?

  32. Ive been hearing good things about Magicka. I assumed that this was already out. Maybe a retail release?

  33. JessicaSimpsonisHavingmyBaby

    I’ll give Hard Corps: Uprising a try, but I heard it’s really hard.

  34. So is Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together coming out on PSN on UMD only?

  35. It should be on PSN in a few hours.

  36. Dragon Quest VI is getting mixed review. Any thoughts from you guys?

  37. You’ve played it?

    Thoughts, impressions, should I buy or wait?

  38. I have not played it. I was never a huge Tactics Ogre fan, so I’ll probably skip this one. I believe Deagle is reviewing it though.

  39. I should have known! Well, it’s in good hands at least.
