Weekly Game Releases – News

Big games this week is Tuesday’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Friday’s Super Smash Bros for the 3DS. Both titles seem promising in their own ways. Porting Super Smash Bros, is a great move, a little late as it would have been great years ago on the handhelds. Middle-earth brings in a new action title to the current gen systems.

For those Destiny and Call of Duty players out there wondering what happened to the servers late last night, a hacker group has yet again brought down the servers for both Destiny and Call of Duty.

Bioware has some new information out about their upcoming sequel to Dragon Age. The game is intended to be more difficult that the original Dragon Age: Origins, which by default makes it much more difficult than the Dragon Age 2. Going back the tactical view in Origins letting you slow the game down and play it more like a turn based RPG as opposed to an Action RPG. This is not a must use feature allowing players to choose how they explore the world. Dragon Age Inquisition is set to release on November 18th.

Evil Within has gotten the official go ahead to be released on October 14th in the US. So save your money up if you like horror games this one is sure to be a good title from the content I have seen so far.
