New releases: Start xenomorph hunting in Aliens

1:00 PM on 02.11.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Impire, The Plan, and Brain Age

It looks like it's going to be a slightly quiet week for new releases, with only two titles really on my radar. Personally, I'm a bit relieved, as I have a ton of catching up to do.

First up, we've long Aliens: Colonial Marines bursting out of chests and onto hard drives everywhere. We've not had a decent Alien game in a while other than the superb Aliens: Infestation for the DS, but I'm not really sure that Colonial Marines is going to change that. Still, I'm always happy to slaughter xenomorphs, and hopefully it will be even more fun with a pal.

Other than that, we've got Cyanide Studio's Impire, which, from what I've played of it, is a rather wonderful strategy title in the vein of Dungeon Keeper; Brain Age game drops on the 3DS, testing the mental abilities of the gullible; Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken comes to the Vita; The Plan hits Mac and PC; and a bunch of games spread to new platforms like very welcome viruses.

We were discussing Ben Carson, pyramids, corpses, SoFlo, and Nekro's fetishes in the Discord chat if anyone wants to know what it's like down there.

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
