All Articles: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2

New Releases: Borderlands: Pre-Sequel, The Evil Within, PlayStation TV, 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.

A complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Nintendo Download: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2, Bayonetta 2 demo, more

bayonettaThere’s more Castlevania coming to the Wii U Virtual Console today as Nintendo has added Castlevania: Circle of the Moon to their online storefront. The Game Boy Advance classic, one of the best available during the handheld’s launch period, sidesteps the Belmont clan to tell the story of vampire hunter Nathan Graves.

Another demon hunter takes up residence on the Wii U eShop today ahead of her full debut on October 24. That’s when Platinum Games will unleash Bayonetta 2 on unsuspecting Wii U owners. But they can give the game an early look today thanks to a new downloadable demo.

Most of this week’s eShop releases will be available to download on Tuesday, including Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2. The latest game based on the Saturday morning cartoon will be released for the 3DS and Wii U on October 14.

More details on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
