Infamous: Second Son

Videogame Releases: Week of March 16th, 2014

March powers on as the PS4 gets ‘Infamous’, and the legend of Big Boss continues to grow. It’s all here to see in this week’s videogame releases.

Infamous: Second Son (PS4)

Make no mistake, Sucker Punch’s ‘Infamous: Second Son‘ is Sony’s PS4 exclusive heavy hitter. The open-world rendition of Seattle lets players take on a new character in the ‘Infamous’ series, and boy do those powers look powerful.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3)

Ah, non-‘Metal Gear’ fans, if only you could understand the particulars of ‘Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes‘. Oddly enough, as a prologue segment to the future, next-gen only ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’, ‘Ground Zeroes’ is a good place to get into the series as it transitions from the classic confined stealth mission to the open world. I’m a huge ‘Metal Gear’ fan, and I remain transfixed by the character of Big Boss, whose origin was disclosed in ‘Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater’. Despite its short nature and high pricing ($20 for digital, $30 for hard copy), this package is nevertheless a must-own.

Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster (PS3, Vita)

It’s been a long time since the first PS2 ‘Final Fantasy’ made its debut, but the twin games that make up ‘Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster‘ have a huge fan base. This new version has not only been touched up for modern resolutions, but includes new epilogue segments for both games.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z (360, PS3)

This is not your typical ‘Ninja Gaiden’. This one stars a cyborg ninja out for revenge. ‘Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z‘ looks like it was born from the same tree as the very fun ‘FarCry 3: Blood Dragon’, which suggests a certain joyful brilliance in self-parody.

Luftrausers (PS3, PC, Mac, Vita)

Luftrausers‘ is a new take on the classic mold formed by games like ‘1942’. The new, vintage-style aerial shooter looks like an arcade blast.
