November seems to mostly just be about Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which is overshadowing even the release of the Wii U. Here at Warp Zoned, we have some people dedicated to Nintendo enough to be early adopters. But all in all, it looks like the crew will be testing the waters and, as always, dipping into their backlogs. Read on to find out more of what we plan on doing this November!
If you look at this month’s list of new releases, it’s clear that Nintendo is November’s dominating force for the first time in a long time. Sure, Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II look interesting, but the Wii U has pulled away their November crown. Nothing has me more excited than the chance to play New Super Mario Bros. U, the first Mario game in glorious high definition.
And because I’m a sucker for all things old school, the Midway Arcade Origins compilation will surely separate a few dollars from my wallet since it includes Smash TV, one of the greatest arcade games of all time.
Ah, November. It snuck up on me so fast I didn’t even see it coming! The game I’m most looking forward to is, surprisingly, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. I was in love with the first Black Ops – the first Call of Duty game I ever got into – and I’m excited to have another Nuketown map, as ridiculous as that sounds. I’m also really looking forward to playing the new Sleeping Dogs DLC, “Nightmare in North Point.” It technically came out in October but I haven’t had a chance to touch it yet because I’ve been spending all of my gaming time in either Pandora or Unova. I am definitely excited about stepping into the life of Wei Shen again, though – especially in this horror-themed content!
My November belongs to Nintendo. I’m still trying to justify pre-ordering the Wii U, but as we edge closer to the release date, picking up Nintendo’s new console along with ZombiU, Assassin’s Creed III, Darksiders II, and (possibly) Call of Duty: Black Ops II with my flexible friend the credit card seems more like a necessity.
As much as I wish my November could belong to Nintendo, I’m going to have to wait a bit before diving into the Wii U. In the meantime, I’ll be playing Lego Lord of the Rings and the old-schooler in me will love Midway Arcade Origins. Aside from that, I’d really like to give Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! a whirl, and, just because I’m so hyped about the movie, I may get into Wreck-it Ralph (which actually slipped into stores on October 30).
