The Latest

New Releases for the Week of November 20th, 2011

From Skyward Sword‘s Link, WWE 12’s The Rock, Tekken Tag Tournament‘s Forrest Law and even the Power Rangers, this week brings back a array of heroes who have briefly wandered from the gaze of the spotlight. With savvy coding and a bit of luck, these new releases may remove the sting of a half-decade long wait for a new Zelda game or Dwayne Johnson’s roles in Get Smart and Tooth Fairy. Actually, there’s probabably very little which can absolve that last cinematic calimity.

DesertEagle’s Pick: Even if you think Spectacle Rock refers to Lady Gaga’s outrageous outfits, this week’s release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is sure to captivate. If rumors are correct and this is in fact the Wii’s last first-party title, Nintendo is issuing a fitting send off to the oft-misunderstood system. A few hours with Link is certain to wash away most memories of the those awful third-party Wii titles.

SeanNOLA’s Pick: Nintendo managed to squeeze Skyward Sword into the eye of the storm – despite heavy November competition leading up to this week, the new Zelda title is more or less uncontested for the top spot this week.

Samurage’s Pick: I’m a pretty Big Zelda fan and I’m finally at a point in my life when I can play the game without my brother ruining the end for me. So Skyward Sword for me.

BlueSwim’s Pick: It’s that time again. THQ returns to the ring once again for the latest installment of their annual WWE wrestling games. While no longer known as Smackdown or Smackdown VS. Raw, WWE ’12 still has the heart (and engine) of the previous games in the series. WWE fans new and old will find a roster packed with familiar faces. Complimenting today’s WWE Superstars, like John Cena, Randy Orton, and Zack Ryder, are all-time greats, such as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Kevin Nash, Vader, Eddie Guerrero, The Road Warriors/L.O.D., and Demolition. Will THQ finally overshadow WWF No Mercy on the Nintendo 64? Probably not. However, WWE ’12 is shaping up to be the best WWE game of this generation and well worth snapping into at launch. Did I mention that the “Macho Man” will be DLC? OH YEAH!!!

  1. first and Skyward Sword.

  2. Power Ranger and Glee in the same week? Get ready for the earth to implode from the pressure of all the trash we have created.

  3. Have you guys seen the trailer to Corpse Party? There’s some crazy shit going on there.

    I hope you review it. Actually, I wont buy it until I see some reviews.

  4. I really hope The King of Fighters XIII is better than the last one. The soundtracks and Atlus’ name are a good sign.

  5. Do you guys plan on reviewing Skyward Sword?

    • Yes, the review will be up tomorrow. If you’re thinking about getting it, the game will not disappoint.

  6. Hole In The Wall.

    They are making a glory hole game? Yes. Now I never have to leave the house.

  7. Jaws of the Ultimate Predator?

  8. Whats cooking, Mama?

  9. Sonic Generations for the 3DS could be the winner this week.

  10. Final Fantasy V is out this week? How much will it be?

  11. Serious Sam 3: BFE is a retail release?

  12. Seconded. Coming after Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it s good time for fighting fans.

  13. Guess which game I’ll be getting?

  14. Skyward Sword this week!!!!

  15. Isn’t it Marshall Law, not Forrest Law who is in Tekken?

    • I’m usually a lurker here, but I just wanted to give your username a thumbs up. Games and facial hair FTW.

  16. I’m going with Skyward Sword and maybe Serious Sam 3: BFE.

  17. Time to pick up the Bat-Man for PC. I hope it doesn’t have some insanely sensitive protection scheme.

  18. The King of Fighters XIII and Tekken Hybrid. I may be done for the year with those two.

  19. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword the gold bundle

  20. I just noticed Sonic Generations. Seems like that one should have come out with the console version.

  21. I still need to get Mario 3D Land.

    • Me too. I played a bit of it and got hooked. Just like the best Mario games.

      I’m also interested in Serious Sam 3: BFE. Wonder how much it’s going to sell for.

  22. 3 votes for Skyward Sword and (I’m guessing) a tablet game from Blue?!? 😉

  23. Zelda, shmeda. Is this one any different from the 20 previous ones? Doubtful.

  24. Are the Glee games sung by the cast or other people?

  25. Looks like my pick for this week will play “C-C-COMBO BREAKER!!!” for Zelda: Skyward Sword. 😉

  26. What’s WWE All Stars (The People’s Edition)

  27. WWE ’12 (The People’s Edition) is an exclusive edition only available from THQ.

  28. “despite heavy November competition leading up to this week, the new Zelda title is more or less uncontested for the top spot this week.”

    Tekken says “o, hai!”

  29. Assassin’s Creed; revelation, Super Mario Land 3D, Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3, and now Skyward Sword.

    There’s just too many damn “must play” games this year. I really wish they would have spaced them out a bit.

  30. im hoping for a deal on Tekken Hybrid.

  31. Zelda for me this week. I can’t wait for tomorrow.

  32. Sage, does your brother give spoilers or does he play your save game? My little brother will jump on my save instead of playing his own game.

  33. Minecraft!!!

  34. Although I’m broke and I REALLY should save money to buy important people in my life gifts, The King of Fighters XIII and Tekken Hybrid are really tempting me.

  35. Blue is plugging DLC? What the hell is going on?!?

  36. No one is excited for Serious Sam 3: BFE?!?! WTF?
