New releases: Skulls of the Shogun will slay you

1:00 PM on 01.28.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Dungeonland, Antichamber, and new 3DS games

Monday has once again arrived, so you know the drill: it's another week of new releases. We're leaving January behind in a somewhat subdued fashion, but there's certain to be something that will catch your eye.

Skulls of the Shogun has caught my eye this week, though lamentably it's only dropping on platforms I have no access to. Maybe it's time for me to upgrade to Windows 8? Nah, probably not. Regardless, it looks like a fun strategy romp for those who like to chuckle while commanding undead minions.

Other than that, there's co-op shenanigans in the form of the medieval theme park scrapfest, Dungeonland; the IGE award-winning Antichamber drops on PC; Omerta: City of Gangsters opens its doors to prospective mobsters; you can shoot people in the face and make things go "boom!" in Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear; the 3DS gets some love thanks to Bloody Vampire and Witch's Cat; play the most hardcore sport of them all in Let's Fish! Hooked On; and more platforms get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. This and a whole lot more magically appears this week.

Anything floating your boat?

I wish more cartoony games would come out. Nintendo makes plenty but there should be more high quality games with whimsy. Where's Jak IV? A proper Crash? Anything that doesn't just involve mashing one button? Realism is fine, but there's a LOT already.

Okay, that's Fallout: New Vegas done. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

R steepled her fingers and smiled as she looked over at S and Z. "We have stopped two shipments of breasts from making it to America as well as Europe, meaning those will be added to our boob coffer. In time, all the breasts shall be mi... I mean, ours.."

I finally backed Indivisible. After hearing about Red from Transistor, I played the demo again. That platforming is solid and I'm used to the combat now.

Man, I completely forgot how awesome Pokemon Black and White's soundtrack is. The Vs. Trainers theme is probably one of the best I ever heard, if not the best in the entire series: [youtube][/youtube]

Indivisible's campaign is over $1.4 million! just a little more!
Dum, dum, dum! Another blog bites the dust! And another done, and another done! Another blog bites the dust! #RIPtumblrbecausefuckit

Ugh, I've been sick for what feels like 3 weeks. If I die I leave all my games casket because they're mine. Stay away! *hiss, hiss*

Apparently the upcoming Tri-Force heroes update makes the local-play only items possible to get for everyone. That's pretty great!

Playing For Glory earlier today, some guy beat me and changed his name to "ifukdu_up". I won next round and he changed it to "ILETUWIN". I then 2-0ed the little sucker, and he left the lobby. I took great pride from this incident.

Why the hell are we suddenly accepting micro transactions in fully priced games? It used to be only acceptable in free-to-play games but its sickening that even AAA developers like microsoft are on the bandwagon.
