New releases: BioShock Infinite finally arrives

1:00 PM on 03.25.2013 // Fraser Brown

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?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

People are having serious anthropological discussions about video games and here I am reminding people that they have one more day to get a dumb card I painted:

I just finished this thing here: I'm mostly happy with my results, altough it lacks some stuff like Skyward Sword or Sonic & Knuckles [img][/img]

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.

Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.
