Video Game Releases Week of February 10th
I’m sure everyone can admit: it’s been a nice break having some breathing room when it comes to new games coming out. I got to catch up on Grand Theft Auto V (again), Destiny, and beat the Elite 4 in Pokemon Omega Ruby. I even banked a million gold in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. But here we are, two weeks into February and the release list is back. This week, Nintendo takes a strong lead (I guess) with a new handheld and a few games to play on it. So here’s the main focal points for the week if you are looking for something new to play… — Don P.
The fun part about this first release is that I have not played any of the betas, nor have I read much about it. The only thing I know about Evolve (Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4) is that it’s made by the studio from Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock. Zombies are so yesteryear, despite dozens of zombie games coming out every year, so Evolve pits four players against another playing a monster. Being as the enemy is player-controlled, I can see how it will be more dynamic than AI-controlled enemies, but with only a small selection of monsters, I’m hoping there is some additional, longer-term hook. I’ll find out, as I will be playing it on Xbox One soon after launch.
