This Week In Games: The Calm Before The Storm

Illustration for article titled This Week In Games: The Calm Before The Storm

Fall is upon us, which means two things: Pumpkin Spice and Video Games. But before that, we have time to sit back and contemplate things, like how great Doom was, because Doom was totally great. But enough about the past. Today, we celebrate the future.

Yeah, I have 3/4 games pre-ordered releasing this upcoming week. First is XCOM 2, then ReCore, then Dead Rising Remastered (Never played Off The Record), and The Bioshock Collection. Why couldn’t they release these games before Labor Day weekend?!

I asked this last week and noone answered, so here I try again.

How come some retailers like Walmart, Microsoftstore have XCOM 2 set to release on the 6th whereas Gamestop, Bestbuy have it set for the 27th?
