New releases: BioShock Infinite finally arrives

Plus Luigi's Mansion, Army of Two, more Pocket Monsters, and some golf

This week, I welcome Monday with open arms, inviting it into my living room, and even introducing it to my parents. Strictly speaking, it's really Tuesday I want to embrace, because that's when BioShock Infinite launches. But since I'll undoubtedly be staying up all night to play it the moment it unlocks, it will still be Monday in my deluded, sleep-deprived mind.

Jim's got a lot to say about the latest instalment of Irrational's franchise, almost all of it good. Will it be the nigh perfect game many of us were hoping for? We'll find out soon enough. I've already let friends and family know I'll be "indisposed" for the next few days. Yeah, I'm pretty excited.

But BioShock Infinite isn't all we've got to look forward to this week. 3DS owners can rejoice, for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon also drops this week, and Chris had a spooktacular time reviewing it. It's really starting to be difficult to not splash out on a 3DS -- damn my limited funds! Inexplicably, another Army of Two title is also coming out; Pokémon fans get another game to add to their likely gigantic collection, this time in the form of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity; and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 launches with lots of golf clubs and a philanderer. 

What are you splashing out on this week?

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

Down with that PAX Pox. Auhhhghghghhhh

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.
ChillyBilly avatarChillyBilly
OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
