What’s In The Grab-Bag This Week?!

 

 

New Releases LogoTrying to come up with a catchy thing for the new releases.. Still have not come across anything I like. Anyway this week has a lot of weird titles coming out with a couple big games. Let’s see what is on the agenda.

PlayStation 3

* Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

One Piece: Pirate Warriors is an action game where players control the Straw Hat crew to defeat surrounding pirates. I can never put my finger as to why this is a popular anime, this and Naruto just goes over my head.

Xbox360/ PS3/ PC/ WII/ PSP/ VITA/ 3DS/ IP

* Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

FIFA 13 will be the next iteration in the hugely successful football franchise. Hopefully EA won’t have this game exploited as last year’s edition. Should do well.

 

 

647695_234290_thumbWorld of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

PC/ Mac

Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

Genre: Massively Multiplayer

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is the latest expansion set for WoW and takes place on the new continent of Pandaria. Time for all the WoW players to come out of their caves for the latest expansion to play a extra from Kung Fu Panda. I am sure this will be the hit of the week. The trailer for this is beautiful though not my MMO, it still has a rabid following.

 

 

936978_82383_thumbDead or Alive 5

Xbox360/ PS3

Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

Genre: Fighting Games

Dead or Alive 5 incorporates a variety of martial arts fighting techniques into its signature fighting style to create a new generation of intense DEAD OR ALIVE combat. One of the premiere fighters on the Xbox and one of my favorite fighters is back. I would love to get this on day one but I am going to wait on this to drop. First time we get more than one DEAD OR ALIVE game on a Xbox console.

Xbox360/ PS3/ PC

* Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

The famous detective Sherlock Holmes is back on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 for a great adventure and probably the most dangerous investigation of his entire career. I love Sherlock Holmes and classic stories such as Robin Hood. I will look forward to this.

Xbox360/ PS3

* Release Date: Sep 25, 2012

A little birdy told me that I should definitely hold out till this lowers in price. They were not impressed with it graphically and gameplay wise. Shame it is a great story that they used.
