Retail Releases: 10-10-2011 through 10-16-2011

"You're going to feel a little more than just a pinch; we have a lot of releases this week. Ready?"

Sony Playstation 3

10-10-11 Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition No trailer
10-11-11 Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny Trailer
10-11-11 Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Trailer

Don says: “While there isn’t much in regards of “star power” this week, you have a Red Dead Redemption collection if you haven’t bought the game yet. Look for a review of Ace Combat on the 11th, I have been working on it over the weekend. For RPG fans, of course there’s Rune Factory. But you after Rage last week, you are probably better off saving your money because Batman comes out next week. Also, PSN gets Sideway: New York, which I will be reviewing by the end of the week.”

Nintendo Wii
10-11-11 Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny Trailer
10-16-11 Skylanders Spyro’s Adventures Trailer

Don says: “Skylanders features toys, which you scan into the game. The toy itself can be transferred into any console version, and keeps it’s level status. How awesome is that? I say that in a serious tone, that sounds awesome.”

Don says: “360 owners get their Gran Turismo this week. Most 360 owners will argue it is better than GT, but one thing is for sure; look for a review on Vagary at some point. Also, Hulk Hogan’s Main Event; I tried to get us a review of that as well. Watch the trailer. Please.”

Don says: “Harvest Moon, while the DS version was released already, is getting its 3D homecoming. Outside of that, we have Cooking Mama (yay?). Mario 3D Land is coming in the next month, so hold out a little longer for a few of the big games we have all waited for since launch”

PC
10-14-11 Renegade Ops Our Review
10-12-11 Orcs Must Die! Our Review
10-11-11 Might & Magic Heroes VI Trailer

Don says: “The PC is getting an old classic I loved as a kid, Might & Magic Heroes VI. Stragey gamers should defiantly check it out. Also, two bite-sized-but-tasty games, which we reviewed on console recently, are coming to PC. Both of which you should buy.”

[Note: Special thanks to Magnus for his help this week on the release list. Without his help, this would not have gotten done.]

    I laughed out loud at the opening caption. “Releases” indeed.

    “360 owners get their Gran Turismo this week. Most 360 owners will argue it is better than GT…”

    Most multi-platform console owners would argue this as well.

    I never said 360-elitests’. ;P

    I can see how that might have come off, but it wasn’t intended that way, I can assure you. :) I have never played Forza, but it is one of the few reasons I want a 360.
