This week is light. That’s not a bad thing though, because there is a big game coming EVERY week this month, so it helps to ease us in instead of dumping four games on us for two weeks. PC gamers are kicking things into gear, too, with War of the Roses (note: I had to mention that, otherwise my head would be resting over Tony’s mantel). Vita is also getting a digital release, New Little King’s Story. You have one week to play all of these games, where are you starting? ~ Don

- Tuesday, October 2 ~ NBA 2K13 (PS3, Wii, & X360)
- Tuesday, October 2 ~ Resident Evil 6 (PS3 & X360)
- Tuesday, October 2 ~ Carrier Command: Gaea Mission
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is the sole exclusive this week, though it came to the PC platform last week. It’s based around a fictional world from a trilogy of novels, but carries it into the gameplay of the original Carrier Command released in 1988. With NBA Live 13 cancelled, there’s only one basketball sim hitting the courts this year, 2K’s NBA 2K13. Last year’s NBA 2K release was a big hit, and this year looks to repeat history with enhancements all around- including a spruced up MyCAREER mode. Resident Evil 6 marks the third..let me repeat that..third Resident Evil game to come out this year. Rest assured, you can now move and shoot in the series, though when I played the demo I kept forgetting to. I’ve been in the habit of standing as still as a statue since the first Resident Evil game, that it never registered I could move in this release. But I digress, hopefully, this will return Resident Evil as a star franchise in the gaming world (EDITOR’S NOTE: It won’t), especially after the last few lackluster console releases.
- Tuesday, October 1 ~ Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone
- Tuesday, October 1 ~ Crosswords Plus
For aspiring artists, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone is your educational gateway into the field. It gives you a broad range of art forms to explore, and looks to be a must-have for anyone looking for a creative outlet on-the-go. Along the same lines, those people needing a brain teaser to complete their day have Crosswords Plus to look into, complete with professionally designed puzzles. Instead of carrying a 3DS and a crosswords book (EDITOR’S NOTE: Who does this?) , now you just need your 3DS and Crosswords Plus.
