Coming Up – UK Game Releases 8th November

So ‘Coming Up’ this week, we have a fairly quiet one after the last couple of weeks bit hitters…. I am also a day late with this one…. you can blame the booze… so we’ll be short n’ sweet!

8th November

First up, on our only day of game releases is Angry Birds Star Wars II (PC) makes its way to the PC, just one easy download from Rovio’s website for a tiny price of $4.95 and comes with pretty much everything the mobile version had, except the telepod apparently… I’ll be honest, I have no idea if this makes a difference or not, but at least your favourite birds will be home to roost…

Another one for Assassin’s Creed – Heritage Edition (Xbox 360/PS3/PC), this includes the first 5 Assassin’s Creed games including Assassin’s Creed I, II and III, Revelations and Brotherhood… Now you should own/played all of these games, but like me probably a copy or two has been “lent” to a friend never to return, or you traded them in, if thats a case, and you love this franchise as much as I do, this is amazing value for money. 5 Games for the price of 1, £40 gets you all of it, so you can play from start to finish to your hearts content!

For the rest of this week we are heading over to the handhelds, first up Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS) a scaled down companion game to its recently released bigger brother; is a 2.5D side scroller, with seemingly slower clunkier moves, puzzle solving adventure that we’ve come to see on the 3DS fairly often… Basically its not a scratch on its bigger brother, so unless you have a particular fondness for 2.5D side-scrollers, this isn’t going to be knocking your socks off.

Next up, we have Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games (3DS/Wii U), their biannual olympic series is back, same format as always, with 18 different sports to play, and even online multiplayer and challenges. Unfortunately all I’ve heard from reviewers who have played the WiiU version have said, that the motion controls are horrible, barely giving you any control of your character, and for that reason alone, avoid…

And then last for this week, we have Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS), the 6th instalment of this series of, puzzle solving, mathematical, IQ testing game play, all wrapped round a nice story, with nicely drawn 2D graphics and 3D cutscenes.  The only downsides I have heard about this, is that it can get a little math heavy, and for the story to matter, you need to start with an earlier game first.

Anyways, thats all for this week! Don’t forget to tune into the podcast this week, we talk about Thor 2, and a review of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag (so far) and why no good story starts with a salad…. Oh and Jon rants… a lot!

Cya later alligators!
