This Monday heralds a week of mayoral responsibilities and the raiding of trap-laden tombs, both of which undoubtedly require similar skill sets. As much as I'm a big fan of Ms. Croft, and it seems like her latest outing is one of her best, I'm a tad more taken with managing a crazy little city.
I'll admit that I'm still not completely sold on SimCity, however. It certainly looks lovely, but I miss my water pipes and gargantuan utopias, and so many of the design choices seem to be aimed at people who are social butterflies, when I'm more of a grumpy moth. Regardless, I'm still rather excited about its imminent release, and will be doing my best to ensure that Beardtopia is the grottiest, most unfriendly city in all the land.
On top of SimCity and Tomb Raider, there are a plethora of other new releases demanding your attention this week. Two Naruto Shippundentitles drop, saturating the colorful, super-powered ninja market; Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk gives budding herbalists something to do on the PS3, while also searching for their lost sister; The Showdown Effect jumps out of a burning building and punches a vaguely German sounding villain in the face; and the 3DS gets a new Castlevania: Lords of Shadowtitle.
You lot are getting spoiled this week. What's tempting you the most?
Xbox 360: Tomb Raider, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Mass Effect 3: Citadel, Forza Horizon: March Meguiar's Car Pack, MLB 2K13, DmC: Vergil's Downfall.

What games should I be looking out for?RadicalYoseph So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality.

Nintendo. Love em but hard to find.Clicks Clacks Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefrontgajknight My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.OverlordZetta If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?FlanxLycanth [youtube]https://youtu.be/7bzKWOeSVn4[/youtube]RadicalYoseph @Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter
#neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeatureBarry Kelly I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!Agent9 Splatfest Decipticons, Let us crush the Autobot menace
OverlordZetta Hey, all you Australian/UK/German Pokemon trainers out there! The Shiny Rayquaza event is ending, has just started, or will be starting in a few days (respectively), so be sure to get in on it while the getting is good!Rad Party God 4 days unt... no, wait... 3 days until Sahelanthropus.Jish K Greetings. For I am new. And still struggling to get that dang blog header to change.From Must Git Gud MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches.
Be prepared! Get it on PS4.Jed Whitaker Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!
