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?

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!
Avoclefo avatarAvoclefo
Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django
Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.
James Internet Ego avatarJames Internet Ego
Played all of Life is Strange today in one sitting. Bloody hell. You should all play it. Only game this year to make me cry. Bravo developers. Possibly the most valuable thing I've ever bought for £10.

Last night, got farther than ever in Wasteland 2. This is my third playthrough-once thru beta, once through the orig version, now on Directors cut. Worth the restart, and it speaks highly of the game that I like it enough to do this. DAMONTA HERE I COME!

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.
BigDoniel avatarBigDoniel
50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!
