New releases: Ni no Kuni arrives at last

Plus The Cave, ShootMania Storm, and more

It's Monday, and that can only mean one thing: it's the beginning of another week of new releases!

And what a great week it is, most notably containing the release of the long awaited Ni no Kuni, Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's sumptuous RPG. Jim's review is now live, and it sounds like an absolutely delightful, if traditional JRPG. Just what the doctor (if I can find my fake medical license) ordered.

In addition, we've got Ron Gilbert and Double Fine's inventive underground adventure, The Cave; the TrackMania-style FPS, ShootMania Storm; Strike Suit Zero, a space combat sim inspired by Colony Wars and Freespace; Croixleura hack-and-slash brawler for PC; an alien-slaying FPS for the Vita, Gun Commando; and a whole bunch more arriving this week.

Blimey, that's a lot of gaming. Anything tickling your fancy?

Finally getting around to cataloging all the intergalactic-level augments I want to use for post-game Tyrant killing in XCX. The grind feels more substantial than Monster Hunter but then again there are no four-story-high monsters in MH.

So due to things at my job picking up and bunch of real life stuff, I don't think I'll be able to give my Waifu Wars blog the love and attention it needs. Still, I don't think I need to remind you guys who best waifu is, but just in case you forgot.

For the next Assassin's Creed, they should completely overhaul the gameplay and base it on the latest Splinter Cells. Stealth, climbing and action would all be massively improved that way.

When does Undertale get "Interesting"? Played for 2-3 hours, having fun, but failing to see what it does that's so utterly amazing.
