New releases: God of War: Ascension keeps the faith

2:15 PM on 03.11.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Darkstalkers Resurrection, and more

Another Monday rolls up, acting like it's the boss of the week, so that can only mean one thing: a week of new releases. I'll be saving my cash this week, not really seeing anything to interest me, but I may grab God of War: Ascension somewhere down the line, if I ever pick up the third one. It is meant to be rather nifty. 

As well as Kratos's return, there's a bunch of other stuff dropping over the next seven days. The second Starcraft II instalment, Heart of the Swarm, launches; brightly colored demonic scrapping returns in Darkstalkers: Resurrection; Dead Space 3 gets some super-early DLCand another one of those shooting people from very far away games show up.

Anything tickling your fancy this week?

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.
