Gaming Thread 2/16/2014

This is another short week as I forgot to write something up as I've been on a binge watching the Olympics so here I am, trying to whip something up in a half hour. Walls of text will resume post Winter Olympics (the only Olympics I really care about).


NEWS

NIS showed off some of their upcoming releases for the year. Frankly though, there is only two games worth noting. Disgaea 4 is coming to the Vita and Danganronpa 2 is coming out in the fall.

After a couple of their patented delays, JAST finally has a solid release date for their western release of the PC version of Stens;Gate. I take no responsibility of what you see if you start clicking around their site.

• Nintendo during their direct showed off some games:

Monolith Soft's upcoming X

New trailer for the upcoming Mario Kart 8 (out on May 30th)

Platinum finally showing off Bayonetta 2

Little Mac finally getting in on some Super Smash Buttons action

You didn't think Nintendo would be dropping easy cash did you? In SHOCKING news, Nintendo knows how to milk old stuff with a release of NES Remix 2

A year late but Mario Golf World Tour is coming. And it has some semblance to the awesome Mario Golf Advance Tour

Stuff I'm playing

With Microsoft disabling the sharpening filter from the Xbox One, I've been playing more Ass Creed 4.

Also have been playing Hawken which I haven't played since alpha. The grind is still pretty bad when it comes to unlocking stuff but the game is in much better shape. Worth the download (it's free) if you want a mech game that doesn't really feel like a mech game.

Nintendo finally released a Inazuma Eleven, Level 5's Soccer RPG, game here in the US. It's the 3DS remake they did and it's very much worth the $20. That being said, the remake cart collected the three DS games and if Nintendo releases the second and third game, they would be jacking the US out of an extra $20 to get all three games. I do expect them to come with the World Cup coming up but man.....

And then of course there is Threes which I'm still addicted to.

NEW RELEASES

NASCAR 14 (PS3, 360) - Not gonna lie, haven't played a NASCAR specific game in over 10 years when Papyrus was releasing some good stuff on the PC. And frankly nowadays, if you have a wheel and PC, your best bet is to finally jump onto the iRacing train if you haven't already. They currently are having a 50% off promotion. Don't get me wrong, the game can get pricey as it's a priced as there is a monthly fee (if you're dumb and not pay attention to their deals over the year) and with car and track purchases ($12 a car and $12-15 for tracks) but it's well worth it in the long run. Coincidental enough, most of the people from Papyrus who made those awesome NASCAR games are behind iRacing.

Earth Defense Force 2025 (PS3,360) - Do you like chaos and mayhem? Do you like watching the FPS drop to single digits? Do you like fun? If so, then this is the game for you. It's a new entry in the crazy throw every giant insect at you till the console chugs hard series. And thankfully, this is made by original people, Sandlot instead of Vicious Cycle who did the awful Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.

Strider (PS3, PS4, 360, XBO and Windows) - Last game from Double Helix as a freelance company (Amazon bought them) is this Strider update. Microsoft doing what it does best and accidentally had this game already up on the Xbox One marketplace for a few hours for free and the early reports is that this game is really good. Ask me last year if Double Helix could make one good game, let alone 2 back to back and I would have laughed at you but apparently they've done it.

Monster Monpiece (Vita) - Get your perv on in this TCG where you jerk off your Vita so the girls strip and level up. Game is supposed to be pretty good but if you look at the card art, you quickly understand why this isn't getting a physical release here and going the digital route. WTB new Culdcept

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U) - On one hand, think this is a waste of Retro's talent but on the other, this could be interesting. And thank God Nintendo pushed this back as the Wii U release schedule is frigging awful as there is only four games of note coming out till Mario Kart 8 (Pier Solar HD, Shovel Knight, NES Remix 2 and Child of Light).

I would also mention that MangaGamer is finally giving the visual novel, Ultimate Boob Wars: Big Chests vs Flat Chests an official western release. Mainly mention it to link to Jim Sterling's review of it

That's it, I'm done
