This has got to be one of the biggest weeks for 'games sure to piss of conservative media pundits' with two of the most notorious game series latest sequels.

At long last, a game with many delays reaches PC.  Is it a grand conspiracy theory, a touching tribute to a friend, Evel Knieval's fever dream, a glorified murder simulator (you can google this yourself), a place to inspire creative ways of MP competition, an odd stance on the horrors of meth use (not spoiling this one) or perhaps a statement about police and prejudice, or a sandbox game filled with such unusual details you would think the developers were possessed?

I hope everyone who is going in fresh on PC enjoys it as much as we console players did.  It's truly one of the better games of the last generation. 

We also get the latest MK, a slew of indie games on PC and console and a disturbing lack of games for WiiU

PS4
Color Guardians
Mortal Kombat X
Titan Souls
We Are Doomed

XB1
Mortal Kombat X
We Are Doomed

WiiU
Donkey Kong 64 (eShop)

Vita
Titan Souls

PC

I'll be nabbing Mortal Kombat X for the XB1, and we'll be doing a video on the online play and netcode, to give y'all a good idea of how the multiplayer is in the wild.

Also picking up Titan Souls, been looking forward to this one for a while. Very similar to Shadow of the Colossus, and I love the art style and boss design.

Teslagrad is also coming for PS4, supposedly.  This is a pretty cool 2D puzzle platformer that I played on Wii U.  Worth a look.

I don't know much about the other small games on PS4 this week (Color Guardians, Titan Souls*, and We Are Doomed), but I'll be keeping an eye on them.

I will probably wind up getting MKX.


*Reviews of Titan Souls are hitting everywhere, and they are all quite positive.  The sparseness of the levels and maybe too intense challenge keep coming up.  I imagine the latter is going to keep me away.

You forgot the expansion to AOW 3 (or maybe you don't do expansions?) which I'm buying.

Yup.  The AoW3 expansion might be my most anticipated release of the last couple of months.

Is the Titan Souls name a play on Dark/Demon's Souls?

Anyway, I don't think I am buying anything. I have GTA for PS4 unplayed already. I will buy Donkey Kong 64 at some point soon but I will probably try to hold off now because I'm knee deep in so many other games.

I don't necessarily bring these up, but I can if people want them.

There are so many that I think it works well when folks bring up the ones they're buying.  Just my 0.02 smile

Yeah, sort of.  Here's the description from Wikipedia (which kind of makes the game sound horrible, heh):

Quote
Titan Souls is a strategic, open world, 2D, top-down action-adventure, where the player has only one arrow and can only take one hit. The goal is to defeat the 20 giant monsters called the Titans, which can, just like the player, only take one hit but only have one way to be defeated. During the fight, the player has to figure out how the respective boss behaves and by that find a way to defeat that boss. The difficulty is that the single arrow has to be charged to be shot and afterwards has to be retrieved to be reused, each action only able to be done while the player is standing still, making them an easy target for the bosses.

If you're interested in the structure of Titan Souls, Game Informer put up a Test Chamber of the game last week.  They figure out the first tier of bosses and face the first boss-boss -- the strategies they discover would surely be considered spoilers in a game that's all about deducing how to beat bosses, but watching them learn in real time is a good way to preview whether the game is for you.


As for me, I'll be buying the Eternal Lords expansion for Age of Wonders III the moment it's available.  The base game was great, the first expansion made it better, and this second expansion has so much new content that some studios would have positioned it as a sequel.  It looks amazing! thumbsup

That just sounds incredibly...not fun.

LOL I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure that game is for someone, just not me.

From AA's video it looks like it's kinda sorta a top down Shadow of the Colossus, all about figuring out boss fights.
