New Releases for the Week of December 25th, 2011


With the holidays upon us, expect the industry to plunge into a deep hibernation during the next few weeks. While most developers, publishers, and PR people will be taking a much-needed reprieve, at last one person will be active through the new year: the employee responsible for pulling the giant e-switch with opens the flood gates for downloadable content.

PS3
All Zombies Must Die! (PSN)
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD (PSN)

Wii
Carmen Sandiego: Adventures in Math (WiiWare)

3DS
Bionic Commando (eShop/GB Version)
VVVVVV (eShop)

DS

DesertEagle’s Pick: Despite a few quizzical difficulty spikes, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath was easily the most accessible and enjoyable entry in the series. With a positive buzz emanating from the European and Australian press, I’m hoping the title will hope sooth the sting of receiving multiple copies of Ventica for the holidays. Note to self: next year, be nicer.

  1. Wow, only two games this week? That is hibernation.

  2. This this is what drives me crazy about the industry. If you were to release a budget game this week, you really wouldn’t have to worry about competitors, and be in stores when plenty of people are gift cards burning holes through their pockets.

  3. You should also post the Xbox DLC deals.

  4. A German site is reporting these deals:

    12/22/2011: Fallout contents
    12/24/2011: Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition
    12/15/2011: Fruit Ninja Kinect
    12/26/2011: Forza Motorsport 4 content (including Season Pass, avatar items)
    12/27/2011: Reach Halo content (including Gond, packs, avatar items, etc.)
    12/28/2011: Sonic content
    12/29/2011: Red Dead Redemption content
    12/30/2011: Gears of War 3 content (including Season Pass Add-ons and avatar items)
    12/30/2011: Call of Duty content

  5. All Zombies Must Die? I through they were already dead…

  6. Is All Zombies Must Die! the sequel to Burn, Zombie Burn?

  7. Wait did Deagle actually write this today, or did he just flip a e-switch?

  8. Oddworld always had the best art style around.

  9. No Oddworld for 360. How…. Odd.

  10. I’ll be getting Oddworld for sure.

  11. Hopefully there will be post Xmas deals this week. Other than that I’ll try Oddworld.

  12. I’ll try the zombies. Unlike some of you, I still like gunning them down.

  13. So there will be some eShop releases this week?

    Also, is there anyway you could post prices with the game?

  14. Merry Christmas and Gaming through the New Year, T-G!

  15. No pick from anyone else?

  16. Are you guys going to review Oddworld?

  17. Hey, some new additions?!? Woah!
