This week’s videogame releases are of such quality that I wish Disney still made titles for the GameBoy Advance. Among other things, we’ve got next-gen panchinko, plus one of the oddest collectibles I’ve ever seen.
Note: Telltale keeps teasing a December launch for the first episode of ‘The Walking Dead – Season 2’, but the exact date remains elusive. Likewise, the Xbox One and 360 versions ‘Halo: Spartan Assault’ are due sometime this month.
Peggle 2 (Xbox One)
I love the first ‘Peggle’. It’s a great, casual iPhone/PC game, but the follow-up ‘Peggle Nights’ was a lot less enjoyable (yet usually more expensive). Hopefully, ‘Peggle 2’ will reignite the original joy, but I’d prefer to play on my phone (at less than the $12 Xbox One price).
Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God (PS Vita)
I don’t know anything about ‘Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God‘, except that it’s for the Vita and has a Limited Edition which includes a “Kuu-rry” plate, spoon and bib. Those LE items are too crazy for me to have made them up.
The Novelist (PC)
‘The Novelist’ asks that you balance the requirements of fulfilling an artistic endeavor (writing a novel) and being a caring family man. This could be a touching (and possibly depressing) gem.
Rekoil (360, PC)
You know all the prestige, perks and leveling of modern First Person Shooters? Well ‘Rekoil’ skips all of that noise in favor of old-school multiplayer shooter dominance.
