I'm getting Project X Zone, which continues an amazing summer for the 3DS.  Also, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep for Borderlands 2 is out this week, so I'll get that as part of the season pass.

Big week for me.  Bought Game and Wario yesterday (actually technically Saturday night).

For the rest of the week:

Hotline Miami
Muramasa Rebirth
Project X Zone
Maybe Deadpool

Will probably get Company of Heroes during some Steam sale.

Exactly! That really caught my interest because I'd love to have another chance to play the 2nd AvP. Never played the latest and couldn't care less if it's in the bundle, but I'd buy it for the 2nd game alone.

LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval's Journey is also coming this week for 3DS and Vita.  I know nothing about it and LEGO on portables hasn't been great, but I'm still curious, for some reason.

I'm keeping an eye on Deadpool and Muramasa Rebirth.

Ride to Hell: Retribution is almost certainly going to be terrible, but I'm going to watch that, too, just in case.

If you haven't played Hotline Miami yet, I highly suggest you give it a shot: http://gamingtrend.com/game_reviews/a-bit-of-the-ol-ultraviolence-hotline-miami-ps3-review/

One of my favorite games of last year gets a really nice console port. So freakin' good.

Deadpool - Good for what it is.
Muramasa - Looks great
Hotline Miami - Loved PC version picked it up for Vita for my upcoming vacation.  Controls take a but to get used to.

I just picked it up.  It has a real addictive quality.  Just one more run… and then you look down your family tree and realize you have killed off over 20 generations of your family…

Word of warning though, a game pad is a must for this one.

Bought it for my son earlier and watched him play some. I love the roguelike elements and the way you gradually increase the ability and power of your descendants, but the game is way too twitchy for me to get anywhere.

I’ve actually been enjoying it quite a lot. The key is not to worry about dying until you’re about level 10. You are supposed to die! That’s the only way you level up. Your first few generations just run into the castle and try to get about 100 gold, die and spend it.

Once you have unlocked the blacksmith, the mystic and the architect the game becomes a lot more interesting because you get better equipment, new special abilities and the option to lock the castle so that it doesn’t randomize.

If you’re having real trouble, try to unlock a paladin; they have the shield ability which lets them block all damage.

Worse than I thought, even.

Destructoid just sank 'em with a 1/10.
Not to be outdone, EGM came out with .5/10

To Deep Silver, I can say only this: how dare you? How dare you charge $29.99 for a game that would be theft at a third of that price? How dare you resurrect a game that should have stayed canceled in 2009? How dare you? Any goodwill you may have earned from customers in your years of existence will be absolutely ruined by the release of this squalid little mutant of a game.

No word exists for the level of disgust I have for everybody involved in its blasphemous making. 

Quote
EGM
But—and I feel the need to make this abundantly clear—just because Ride to Hell fails to the point of being hysterical, that doesn’t mean it’s an enjoyable experience. By no stretch of the imagination is it “so bad, it’s good.” The first hour or two might be a laugh riot, but that quickly subsides into horrible repetition and endlessly clunky gameplay. The persistent glitches—weapons that hover in midair, firing by themselves, enemies that stretch out at the waist like grotesque snake-people when you shoot them—are enough to give you a few chuckles here and there, but it’s mostly a grind. Plus, the checkpoints are horrendous—dying can sometimes set you back a solid 20 to 40 minutes. It was physically painful to force myself to finish. I contemplated quitting my job twice. I screamed during the entire credit roll.

Other games may have offered less content for more money or come up shorter in specific, individual areas, but I don’t think there’s ever been a game that does so many things so universally poorly. There’s point-to-point driving, races, vehicular combat, melee combat, and third-person shooting—and it’s all abysmal. The graphics and art direction are amateurishly hideous, the dialogue is awful, and the voice actors do about as good of a job selling their lines as Edward James Olmos would hocking skin-care products. The soundtrack consists of about seven grating songs repeated over and over again—that is, when it doesn’t decide to cut out completely and leave you in awkward silence for minutes at a time. Retribution is misfiring on all cylinders.

Over the last few months, some prominent critics have dubbed two high-profile titles—BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us—as the medium’s answer to Citizen Kane. I’d like to add to that discussion by making a bold prediction of my own: In Ride to Hell: Retribution, videogames have, at long last, found their Manos: The Hands of Fate.

Don’t play Ride to Hell: Retribution. Don’t think about playing it. Don’t think about thinking about playing it. Forget it exists, and continue your life as though it never did.

I recommend Game Informer's Test Chamber of Ride to Hell: Retribution.  I think it'll answer any questions people have about the game.

Also, Game Informer is setting up for a live playthough of Ride to Hell starting tonight at 9:00pm Central:

Quote from: Dan Ryckert
Halfway through playing the game, I realized that its sheer awfulness needed to be seen by a wider audience than myself and the other GI editors that crowded around to mock it. After talking with some of the staff, we've decided to convene at video editor Jason Oestricher's house to stream it late into Saturday night.

We'll start at 9pm Central, and play until either we fall asleep or you folks get tired of watching this garbage. If the latter happens, we'll have some other options available for streaming (but trust me, Ride To Hell is a gift that keeps on giving).


This is the best news since Gratch's decision to continue posting after the twins were born!
