Everyone that perused yesterday’s PlayStation Store update should be very familiar to all the titles added to the Xbox Games Store today. Games like…
- Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (Xbox 360) – Gearbox handed the development of this interquel off to 2K Australia, and they took it all the way to Pandora’s Moon… and made Claptrap a playable character.
- The Evil Within (Xbox One, Xbox 360) – Shinji Mikami’s return to the survival horror genre promises plenty of scares and lots of gore.
- Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Xbox One) – A remastered version of United Front’s gangland tale… now complete with every DLC add-on.
- The Walking Dead: Season 1 (Xbox One) – Telltale’s heartbreaking zombie drama is now available on the Xbox One.
- Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (Xbox 360) – The second game based on Pac-Man’s latest animated adaptation.
- Duck Dynasty (Xbox 360, Xbox One) – A game adaptation of everyone’s favorite show about duck-calling multi-millionaires.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
It’s another big week for the PlayStation Store as more than a dozen new titles are now available to download on the PS4, PS3, and Vita.
Leading things off is Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PS3), 2K’s tale of what happened between the first and second games in the series. With a new location (Pandora’s Moon) and a new developer (2K Australia), it might just make your PS4 feel a bit lonely for the next few weeks.
But speaking of the PS4, it is now home to plenty of scares and a little bit of whimsy. The scares are provided by the haunted mansion of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within (also available on the PS3) and the roving zombies of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Come to think of it, the deadly Triad gangsters of United Front’s Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition are pretty scary too. To balance out all this blood and gore, you might like to know that PopCap’s adorable puzzle game, Peggle 2, was released for the PS4 this week as well.
Vita owners might like to know that Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition is finally available to download. Not only does the portable version of Mojang’s world-crafter include everything from the PlayStation 3 Edition, but it’s also a free download if you own it on the PS3.
Finally this week, if you love Duck Dynasty so much that you want to play a quickie tie-in game (also titled Duck Dynasty) on your PS3 or PS4, then Activision’s got you covered.
A complete list of this week’s new releases (including a few more that went unmentioned above) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
While most of this Fall’s new releases are centered around showcasing the power of the PS4 and Xbox One, let’s not forget that previous-generation consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360 are also in line for a few new games. (Meanwhile, the Wii U sits in the corner, doing its own thing, content in its existence.) And PS3/Xbox 360 owners should take note that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, perhaps the biggest PS3/Xbox 360 release of the Fall, will be available in stores this week. The third Borderlands game, which actually takes place between the first two titles in the series, will also be released for the PC.
Bethesda’s The Evil Within is not a previous-generation exclusive, but it will be release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in addition to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Evil Within is Shinji Mikami’s return to horror and will likely be full of pants-wetting terror regardless of what platform you play it on.
The rest of this week’s new releases are a grab bag of games that run the gamut from a new Pac-Man game (Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 on the 3DS, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360) to a Duck Dynasty tie-in (Duck Dynasty on the 3DS, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One) to a passel of re-releases on new platforms (Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One; The Walking Dead on the PS4 and Xbox One; and The Walking Dead Season 2 on the PS3 and Xbox 360).
Finally, speaking of systems proclaiming their existence, Sony’s PlayStation TV set-top box, which plays Vita games and streams PlayStation Now content and local PS4 games, will be released this week.

While the big-time video game tie-in seems to be dead (or at the very least, on life support), the practice of turning faddish television shows into quickie game adaptations is alive and well. Case in point, Activision’s adaptation of A&E’s inexplicably popular Duck Dynasty. The game, which is also simply called Duck Dynasty, will ask players to “Become A Robertson” by hunting ducks (and using their duck calling skills), fishing, racing boats, and playing pranks. It sounds like the Robertsons are also providing voicework for the game, so fans should be pleased.
Duck Dynasty will be released on October 14 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A handheld version for the 3DS is also in the works and will be released on the same day. That’s right, we’re going from announcement to release in a little over two weeks. Even if you’re a fan of the show, that’s never a good sign.
