Releases: Week of September 23 – The Golden Gobbler
Hi. I’m not Don. He would have been doing this piece as he always does, if he hadn’t refused to feature Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+as the overall pick of the week. He said something about it not belonging because it was only a touch up of a three year old game. I hit him in the side of the head with a hammer. And as such, here we are, I’m writing this piece and Don has a really big headache. I hope everyone learned their lessons. ~Chris
It’s hard to believe that Pac-Man Championship Edition DX released nearly three years ago. It’s even harder to believe that in those three years, it never came to PC. But now it is, in the form of Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+. Also available on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ brings four new courses including Championship III and Highway II, which claims to bring an increased challenge to redesigned fan favorites. If you haven’t played Pac-Man CEDX yet, this is your chance; also, what have you been doing with your life?
One series I didn’t believe would turn into a yearly franchise was Scribblenauts but that is exactly what has happened here with Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
marking the fifth straight yearly release in the franchise. Building off of last year’s Scribblenauts Unlimited, Unmasked allows players to use their favorite DC superheroes to solve puzzles.
Speaking of yearly releases, FIFA 14
is EA’s latest iteration of their monster soccer franchise. This years version boasts smarter teammates and major ball control changes. Ball physics are a big deal and if they’ve improved the ball play to feel like kicking an actual soccer ball it will be a welcome improvement.
Sony has made great strides in getting the biggest indie games onto their Playstation 3 and Vita platforms. Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut
is another notch in their cap bringing the heralded adventure game by Jasper Byrne over to their systems. Lone Survivor delivers a unique blend of horror and adventuring that should give Vita players something to hold them over until Batman next month.
Look, I don’t really care anything about Rise of Venice
but if I don’t include it Tony will hit me in the head with a hammer and then I will have a big headache and well, I don’t want that. I’ll give it this though, it does look incredibly pretty.
