This week we're going down to South Park to have ourselves a time. Other releases include the next episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two and hot damn, some simulation farmin', hell yeah.
Thief arrives on the PC and both PlayStations and Xboxes this week, along with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on Xbox 360 and Xbox One and the latest Castlevania for PC and the previous-gen consoles. Call of Duty fans on PC and the PlayStations get the Onslaught DLC this week, too.
Rayman Legends makes its way to Xbox One and PS4 this week, followed by Strider's long-awaited return to the PlayStation and Xbox consoles, plus PC. But the week's big gorilla arrives on Friday, with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U.
The week's big new packaged release is Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, with a couple of bundles and re-releases arriving with it on Tuesday. The MMO World of Tanks fully launches on Xbox 360 on Wednesday, and The Last of Us gets its prequel, Left Behind, on Valentine's Day. Here's the week in games:
We now return to our regularly scheduled The Week in Games, now that we have enough titles to properly justify discussing an upcoming week for them. Key releases are Bravely Default on 3DS, the latest episode of The Wolf Among Us, and The LEGO Movie Video Game doing a Full Ginsburg on all eight (8) current platforms.
We're about to climb out of the customary two-month hibernation video games enter every December. An updated Tomb Raider releases for the newest consoles on Tuesday, along with Broken Age for everyone. There's much more on the horizon.
Not much cooking this week in terms of new releases, outside of Olli Olli on Tuesday for PS Vita. One more week of this and we'll be done with the usual deep freeze on the release calendar.
We're still in hibernation for major new releases, so our recap will again be more forward looking than focused on the present. Assassin's Creed Liberation gets a console release this week. More to come later.
Video gaming new releases are still deep in hibernation but there are a couple of notable titles coming this week. Let's also look ahead through the next couple of months to see what else is on the way. Here's the—uh, well, it's a span of time, in games.
By God, we are going to wring every last new game out of this year if it's the last thing we do. And sure enough there are a couple of digital releases worth a look this Christmas week. But the hay is in the barn for 2013, folks. That's why the Steam Holiday Sale is on right now.
Retail console releases may be done for this year but there still are marquee names waiting for their closeup as we finish off 2013. Chief among them is the next season of The Walking Dead, which arrives Tuesday along with Terraria on the PS Vita. Here's the week in games.
The year still has a few delights in store for us, beginning tomorrow with Peggle 2 on Xbox One. Doki-Doki Universe lands on Tuesday for all PlayStation platforms that access PlayStation Network. Angry Birds, inevitably, gets its kart racer on Wednesday. Here's the week in games.
We're settling in for a long winter's nap after Friday's release of the PlayStation's signature driving sim Gran Turismo 6. After that, well, there'll be news this weekend from the Video Game Awards, but it'll concern stuff well down the road. Not much cooking until February, so here is your week—or month—in games.
It is axiomatic that just about nothing in video games happens—in the West, anyway—the week the United States celebrates its most important holiday: Black Friday. However, I do tip my cap to Professional Farmer 2014 for its timely release on Thursday—Thanksgiving day itself.
It's the Xbox One's turn to shine this week, arriving on Friday along with 22 games, among them exclusives like Ryse, Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3. And, in either the most unfortunately timed or ballsiest release ever, New Super Mario and Zelda titles come out the same day. Here's the week in games.
The PlayStation 4 arrives this week, bringing with it a raft of games, some of which already have released on existing consoles. Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall are notable PS4-only titles. For those sitting out the PS4's launch, XCOM's splendid Enemy Within expansion hits Tuesday, along with Capcom's DuckTales…
Call of Duty: Ghosts is a longstanding first-Tuesday-in-November tradition, scaring off nearly every other big release that has a bunch of marketing behind it. But there are a few others of note, including a Castlevania collection and State of Decay on PC. Here's the week in video games.
Battlefield 4 draws first blood in EA's annual shooter stare-down with Call of Duty. It didn't pick a great time to go first as it must fight with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for attention on Tuesday. Rasslin' fans, your WWE sim title arrives under new management. Here's the week in video games.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches globally on one day—Friday. There must be a ton of spoilers in it that Warner Bros. doesn't want to go on the Internet in the three days between then and Tuesday, the typical US drop day. If you can't wait to the end of the week for your superhero fix, LEGO: Marvel Superheroes is there.
Skylanders Swap Force, out today on basically everything, is the week's heavyweight release. We're getting close to hunting season, too, and that means time for another Cabela's game; this one sends you to Africa.
