Gaming Thread 11/22/2014

Actually thought of doing a Christmas guide for gaming neckbeards but I said to hell with it (this might come next week depending on how boring Thanksgiving is). And everyone else has done a gaming list on any site you choose so eh.

I'm being lazy and taking a short writeup

Steam sale kicks off this week. Same with Amazon's PC game sale (which frankly has been better then last 5 years or so of Steam sales).

Arcade Hero did a four part write up of what he saw at this year's arcade trade show, IAAPA. Worth reading through.

• Here is a new trailer for that Civilization MMO that no one asked for

• And they're apparently still making that Ghost in the Shell shooter

&bull Apparently Telltale wants to be working on the first season of their Game of Thrones game for the next three years as they announced that it's going to be 6 episodes

Warlords of Draemor did it's job (at least in the short term) as it bumped subs back over 10 million and moved just under 3.5 million units in the first 24 hours.

Activision continues their tiring trend of not giving any meaningful numbers on sales, this time for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

Considering we hadn't heard a release date, this should have been expected but Ori And The Blind has been delayed till next year

Upcoming "remaster" of Bladestorm gets a US release date, March 3rd. Very much looking forward to replaying this

• You wanted story with your Destiny? Well, you're still not getting any

• Also, I really have no thoughts on this other than to laugh

It's late, especially after the whole Double Fine stuff Valve updates the rules and guidelines to their Early Access program.

To go right next to your Lancer in your "Totally Not Gonna Get Laid Again" collection, Triforce is making life sized replicas of the plasma rifle from Halo. Run ya $600.



The big games already came out so it's a quiet week.

Warhammer 40K: Armageddon (PC) - It's a hex based W40K game created by the people behind the awesome Panzer Corps game. Not surprisingly, it's pretty much Panzer Corp with a Warhammer skin and frankly, that's awesome IMO. It's the full Second War for Armageddon spread out between 30 different maps as you fight off the Ork invasion. And it comes with a scenario creator which is pretty cool (hopefully people translate some other campaigns). This is also coming to the iPad sometime next year. I like the games Slitherine publishes and I really like Panzer Corp so I'm very much looking forward to this release.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions (PC, PS4, PS3, XBO, 360) - No matter how many times I watch the trailers and gameplay clips, I just cannot hide my disappointment in how this looks. This game looks like trash. No, this series isn't anything like Super Stardust and yet here we are, something that looks like it dripped from between someone's ass cheeks. Go back to your crappy iOS games and Vita Pets DLC, Lucid Games.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (3DS) - Still eh about a dungeon crawler Persona game but the reviews have been outstanding. Can't wait to try it out this week even though I still don't like 3DS games costing $50.

Tales from the Borderlands (PC, PS3, PS4, XBO, 360 & Vita) - So the first episode of Telltale's side project finally coming out (out before the 1st episode of their Game of Thrones). I'm curious in how this property is going to translate to a point & click adventure setup. Wish it was a better property though. Like all Telltale games, can't say it's the wisest decision to pick up one of their games as it launches as you'll still be waiting for it to end come next November. Am curious if they have fixed their legacy save bugs that have plagued their games since they started.
