Firstly, Happy Halloween! And now that we’re heading into November, let the holiday gaming season begin. Over at PlayStation blog, Ryan Clements posts about the games coming out for the PlayStation brand this week:
- .Hack//G.U. Last Recode
- 8-Bit Adventure Anthology: Volume I
- Ben 10
- Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back
- Call of Duty: WWII
- Pox Nora
- Sokoban Next
- Spintires: MudRunner
Call of Duty, of course, is the triple A heavy hitter. I haven’t been interested in the franchise much since the Black Ops era, but the game play has looked good. “Get the squad back together” commercials have also struck the right tone. It’s still kind of surreal to see a new Bubsy game, for reasons I’ll get into in another post. The hidden gem for me though is Deja Vu, included in the 8-Bit Adventure Anthology. It’s been a long time since I’ve played it.
Meanwhile, on Games with Xbox Gold, the four games slated for November:
- Trackmania Turbo (November 1-30)
- Tales from the Borderlands (November 16-December 15)
- Nights into Dreams (November 1-15)
- Deadfall Adventure (November 16-30)
