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?

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?
Vuster avatarVuster
Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.
