Part One of this year’s next-generation console extravaganza begins this week with the launch of PlayStation 4. If you haven’t already ordered one, Sony’s new machine may be hard to find, but peripherals like the PS4 Camera are plentiful. However, if you have the next-gen plunge, here’s what gaming opportunities you can expect to see on store shelves this week:
- Angry Birds Star Wars
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
- Battlefield 4
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- FIFA 14
- Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition
- Just Dance 2014
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Lego Marvel Super Heroes
- Madden NFL 25
- NBA 2K14
- Need Foe Speed: Rivals
- Skylanders Swap Force
If the next-generation of consoles is still a bit too expensive for you (or you’re waiting for the impending Xbox One launch), there’s also a few current-generation games to keep us busy this week. XCOM: Enemy Within, the expansion to last year’s massively well-received XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. And the possibly final voyage of Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, will be released for the PS3. Finally, Mario & Sonic square off again in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games on the Wii U.
There’s more new games where those came from and you can find a complete list of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Mario and Sonic are going to go for the gold once more as Nintendo and Sega announced Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games this morning. The Wii U game will pit Mario and Sonic and all their friends against each other in a wide variety of events such as curling, skiing, figure skating pairs, and snowboard slopestyle. Like the Mario & Sonic titles released for the Wii, Mario & Sonic 2014 will include “Dream Events” that take regular Olympic sports and add a Mario/Sonic twist to them.
Interestingly, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will make use of both of the Wii U’s input methods. Some events will require the Wii U GamePad while others will require a Wii RemotePlus. But some, such as the skiing/shooting hybrid known as the biathlon, will require both controllers.
A release date for Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be announced “at a later date,” but I imagine it’ll be in stores well before the first medals are awarded in February.
