New releases: The Knife of Dunwall blinks into existence

5:15 PM on 04.15.2013 // Fraser Brown

Plus Injustice, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, and Soul Hackers

After a couple of lackluster weeks of new releases, we're spoiled for choice this week. A plethora of games drop, begging for your attention. Time to blow more money.

At the top of the list, for me, is the latest piece of Dishonored DLC, The Knife of Dunwall. Daud, the DLC's protagonist, only appeared in the main game briefly, but he has a central role in the story of Corvo's set-up. I'm really looking forward to seeing Dunwall through his eyes, and learning more about the enigmatic assassin. 

Also arriving this week is the DC fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, where a bald man in a mechanical suit can beat up Superman; Pandora's Tower finally gets a US release, long after the rest of us have been able to enjoy it; Star Wars: The Old Republic gets a new premium expansion in the form of Rise of the Hutt Cartel; the new Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner game, Soul Hackers, launches on the 3DS; and the wonderful but tragic Papo & Yo gets a PC port. All this and more comes out this week.

So, what are you grabbing?

Touchable Holograms? When this eventually matures and hits market, almost all our regulars will vanish for weeks.

Xenoblade Chronicles Wii for €10? Sure, Nintendo, don't mind if I do!

Super Smash Bros. 4 has too much content. So much so I almost don't want a sequel. I honestly hope that NX gets a "Super Smash Bros. For NX" port rather than a new installment. It could be a GOTY edition and come with all of the DLC.

Bought my first full-priced physical 3DS game ever - New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward. I'll try to write a post on the previous game at some point before doing the same with NSB2.

Bayonetta 2 is 40% off in the EU Nintendo eShop today. If you have a WiiU and don't have this game you are a horrible person and I want nothing to do with you. You can amend your errors by buying it. Xenoblade Wii is also 50% off as well.

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.
