Releases: Week of September 16- Wonderful Grand Theft Auto
I give the industry credit this week. If you notice, there are only a handful of games coming out. One of those games is something of a spectacle, and publishers know that. Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t have much of a crowd to fight with this week, other than possibly Wonderful 101. But the latter launches on a platform that hasn’t found a fixture in a large portion of homes yet. So, kids, you have a day to finish up everything you want to finish, because if you intend on getting GTA V, that should tide you over until the flood of games next month. Oh, and this marks the first (and possibly only) time in our short life that we all agreed upon a “Pick of the Week”. ~Don P.
One of the highest-profile franchises is coming to stores this week, with Grand Theft Auto V (PS3 & Xbox 360). I can’t fully explain why I am hyped for this game, because I was heartbroken with Grand Theft Auto IV. What I loved about Grand Theft Auto was just running around and doing random stuff at my leisure. I enjoyed the story to Vice City, though it was a clear rip-off of a movie. And I didn’t like the story at all in San Andreas, but the gameplay was still great. Grand Theft Auto IV just felt too real, and the character didn’t resonate with me. Being able to swap between three characters at will seems interesting in GTA5, though I am a little concerned that it will be harder to relate with the characters. Hopefully, Rockstar has some great character building. So while I still have some serious concerns about Grand Theft Auto V, I am shunning the world so I can bask in all of its hopeful-awesomeness.
