Coming to Stores: August 28th Edition

Sony is preparing for the holidays with its usual dump of collections. That’s not to say these games are dumps, though and most of these collections are all affordably priced for the amount of epic gameplay you get. With August pretty much over, I’m preparing now for the eventual influx of Borderlands 2. My body will be ready, will yours..? ~ Don

Please note dates are subject to change, and these do not account for digital releases, which can sometimes be as important as retail releases. Don’s personal picks are highlighted in red.

Multi-platform:

  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ Madden 13 (PS3 , Wii & X360)
  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII (PS3 & X360)

Playstation 3 only:

  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ God of War Saga
  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ Ratchet & Clank Collection
  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ Journey Collector’s Edition
  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ inFamous Collection

It’s been awhile since the market has seen a flying game, so Mad Catz has bestowed upon us Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII. It’s going to be hard to live up to the other World War II flying game this year, but it has the option to come bundled with a flight stick, which is pretty slick. Sony is dropping a bunch of collections just in time for the holiday. Each one comes bundled with a slew of goodies and games for a price that’s hard to beat. The most notable one would be the Journey Collection (Editor’s note: Ahem…. Ratchet) as up until now, those games were only available as digital downloads. The pick of the week this week is the yearly release, Madden 13. Our reviewer, Tony, has sunk some serious hours into it, praised it on The Perfectly Sane Show and already has a review written for your pretty little eyes to read over.

Handheld

 

i can enjoy rollercoasters anywhere…without the fear of puking.

3DS:

  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D

Vita:

  • Tuesday, August 28 ~ Madden 13

We’ve discussed RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D coming to the 3DS before, but let’s have another go, shall we? You remember that classic 90′s PC game, RollerCoaster Tycoon? It’s now handheld and in 3D. 

And on the Sony front, Madden 13 makes its debut on the Vita, boasting a full Franchise mode, a Superstar “career” mode, online play and loads of touch/tilt control options. I’ve spent the majority of my time with it playing the career mode. I wasn’t as impressed overall as I was with FIFA for the Vita (Editor’s Note: I have been though and I’m reviewing it so that’s what matters), but for its first release on Sony’s new handheld, it is a solid game.
