New releases: Fire Emblem makes a welcome return

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?

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Stealth in Payday 2 gets infinitely easier once you get the Control Freak perk.
