New releases: Fire Emblem makes a welcome return

1:00 PM on 02.04.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Dead Space 3 falls from space, and Sly Cooper travels through time

It can't be Monday again, can it? My phone, calendar, and PC tell me that it most certainly is, but I've just spent an entire day stuck on planes and in airports, thus I may very well have gone mad. Regardless, I'm committed to my insanity, so it's time for this week's new releases.

Fire Emblem! Hell yeah! I couldn't possibly be more excited about a game exclusive to a system I don't even own. It may very well be the final push I need to pick up yet another console that I don't have time or money for. I don't even need to bore you by waxing on about this, as the review has been up for days. Go devour it!

If you don't care about Fire Emblem (what the heck is wrong with you?) then there's still plenty that may tickle your fancy. That Dead Space 3 thingymabob is due to arrive, complete with micro-transactions, co-op stuff, and I certainly hope a solid amount of scares; Sly Cooper is jumping through time and planning heists in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time; and that Ken fellow continues to have anger issues in Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

That and a whole heap more are gracing shops both digital and physical this week, you lucky, lucky devils. What are you grabbing?

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

Wanna ask a question for tomorrow's PStoid? You still have time! While you're at it don't forget to ask one for Riobux too!!

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.
