New releases: The Knife of Dunwall blinks into existence

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.

Shoot, I have made the awful mistake of watching 50 First Dates while doing Comments of the Week. The comedy in the beginning gave me energy, but all of the sad drama is making me cry and it's hard to see through all the tears. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME!? 8^8

Kotobukiya's making a Xenoblade Chronicles X Formula skell model that looks great but I'd rather have a Lailah model. And I would name it Tharja just like my Lailah in the game.

Damn you, TV Tropes. As if I wasn't already dead set against doing an Undertale genocide run, this has killed the possibility for me.

Yep, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is still as bad and unpolished as I remember it. Still manages to give me a headache too due to the choppy framerate.

Eye of the Beholder (2014) - Possible boss battle theme for a video game. Love the action strings and bell instrument. I wrote this song for 2AD14 - II, which has many great tracks on it. This one is one of my favorites, which is why I'm sharing it.
