Releases for the Week (September 26th-October 2nd)



Welcome again to a small recap of all the games you’ll be able to enjoy (if you have the money) on your Sony portable and console (if it’s a PS3 or a PSP and totally NOT a PSX or a PS2). Have the money but don’t have the time to play them? Don’t worry! You HAVE to buy new releases to support our favorite hobby, since that way, the developer, and the publisher, get enough $$$ to work on a sequel, or a new IP, so we can continue this cycle (Atlus sends its best and thanks you for all the Catherine purchases, while, at the same time, putting in a good word for his buddy NIS America and Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland).

Now with that out of the way… how awesome are all the releases for this week? THIS AWESOME:

PS3 RETAIL RELEASES

You can buy The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection Right Here!

You can buy Child of Eden Right Here!

You can buy Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD Right Here!

You can buy FIFA Soccer 12 Right Here!

You can buy Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 Right Here!

You can buy Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland Right Here!


Or maybe you would like the Collector’s Edition with an Artbook and a Soundtrack CD!

You can buy X-Men: Destiny Right Here!

PSN RELEASES

minis

Waaaaaaaaaay too many releases worth of our time and money this week. What will be your priority purchase at retail and on the digital front? Are you more of a FIFA or a Pro Evolution sorta guy? If you’re open to suggestions… you should get ICO/SotC Collection, Atelier Totori and Rochard. I’ll probably get a chance to review the minis as well so I’ll let you know what is what next week.

    wow big week

    @Oly: Just be sure to send Jr back to my place once you’ve written the review.

    is it just me or is there no pic for Child of Eden? It didn’t show up on my PC, just the link. Curious as it’s an awesome game and deserves equal representation.

    A lot of great games. I know I’m getting as I’m an old school Rez guy. I still feel like a jerk since I never played Rez on Dreamcast and only discovered it on PS2. I have Move & 3D at home so I am specifically curious if you guys can put some attention into the review including how well Move works with it and how good the 3D looks.

    The only other must buy for me is Ico/Collossus (although I’ve played Ico, but not SotC) so that one I will wait a bit on. I have a mountain of games as is anyway that are unplayed. Atelier Totori looks great, but I’ll wait on that one also.

    Too many frickin’ awesome games and not enough time or $ to play/buy them all… =(

    Child of Eden contest? Ico/Collossus collection contest? Anyone? hehe

    Pic shows for me. It’s been taken directly from our Amazon store so it’s weird that it doesn’t show for you.

  6. #6 by mowmow on September 26th, 2011 [ 13030 Points ]

    Ico/Shadow everyone has to get this game!! masterpiece.

  7. #7 by jwhyrock on September 26th, 2011 [ 13 Points ]

    It does now EdEN.

    • #8 by Tosh on September 26th, 2011 [ 1102 Points ]

      I silently fixed it like a Ninja.

  8. #9 by jwhyrock on September 26th, 2011 [ 13 Points ]

    and here I thought I was crazy. Well actually I am so that’s a separate issue…

  9. #10 by dragon290513 on September 26th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    code veronica maybe but the two collections I will wait for a price drop, the rest is meh

  10. #11 by EdEN on September 26th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    @dragon290513: So I imagine you love Splinter Cell but not that much as to get the collection. I can’t really have fun playing the series so I’m definitely skipping that one. As for ICO/SotC collection it will go on my “to buy” list for the end of the year so I can get several games out of my backlog and carry on with the reviews.

  11. #12 by jwhyrock on September 26th, 2011 [ 13 Points ]

    not sure if this is faux pas to post on your site or not, but there is a deal on game collections at Best Buy – http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat252800050012&type=category

  12. #13 by EdEN on September 26th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    Don’t see a problem with game deals since this is an expensive hobby and every penny we save is another penny we can spend in awesome games like Atelier Totori that need all our support.

    Now, the link you just posted? Says there’s no page related to it!

    Big week

    4 me PES 2012 with NEYMAR on the Cover, its a dream see THE BEST PLAYER of World and a jersey of my Club in a PS 3 game, i will never sell this game.
    I always bought FIFA, last years i got Fifa and Pes, but this time… PES 12

    And take Code Veronica i played on my old Dream Cast, so SEGA should be realese Shenmue too
    Its awesome game

  14. #15 by jwhyrock on September 26th, 2011 [ 13 Points ]

    weird it works for me. If no luck with the link google – Save $20 on two select PS3 collections Best Buy and see if that works

  15. #16 by dragon290513 on September 26th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    @eden: not really, I just finished conviction on PC, the rest I have never played but it and the ico collection are those that I have heard a lot of praise so i put them in my must play list and yeah right now I got a lot in my backlog so im not in a hurry to get a new game anytime soon. Gaming on both PC and PS3 does that to you.

  16. #17 by Jcmdaddy on September 26th, 2011 [ 63362 Points ]

    Definitely getting that ICO collection. Though the Battlefield 3 beta starts tomorrow so not sure how quickly I’ll play SotC XD.

  17. #18 by EdEN on September 26th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    @Jcmdaddy: Well, ICO is about 10 hours long (correct me if I’m wrong) and SoTC can take up to 30 hours for the platinum so just BUY IT, put it in your backlog, and play the BETA.

    wowowowoowow

  19. #20 by Darklurkr23 on September 26th, 2011 [ 22371 Points ]

    About time Harmony of Despair comes to PSN. It was a good game, but WAAAY to expensive. I hope it comes out at 10. It’s too short for 15. Were talking like Limbo time here. Nice that the Splinter Cell tril comes to us. I never really wanted to play it, but the tropheis may be a nice push to try the games. Also, ICO can go to HELL. GO TO HELL AND DIE

  20. #21 by Markus on September 27th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    Nice week

  21. #22 by Isli on September 27th, 2011 [ 44885 Points ]

    I’ll pick up the Ico collection eventually. I’ve already played both games, so I’m not too worried about getting it, but it’s on my list of ‘games to play in between big releases’.

  22. #23 by Pedro on September 27th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    Finally a strong week indeed. Still considering getting some of those.

    However, everything is going to the back of the line. Dark Souls is coming out next Tuesday and that’s what I’m most excited about.

  23. #24 by Pedro on September 27th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    Oh, and the new “NEW” image is waaay better! Great work (Jay? Tosh?) !

  24. #25 by EdEN on September 27th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    @Isli: I could never find a copy of ICO so that is the main attraction for me in the collection. Now, SotC in HD and at a STEADY 30 fps? That’s a great bonus!

  25. #26 by EdEN on September 27th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    @Pedro: All Jay’s fault. My image was retro-awesome!

  26. #27 by Kane112 on September 27th, 2011 [ 34177 Points ]

    EdEN: @Pedro: All Jay’s fault. My image was retro-awesome!  

    hahaha yes it was

  27. #28 by Trieloth on September 27th, 2011 [ 3426 Points ]

    OMG Castlevania HoD!!! Its about god damn time!

  28. #29 by EdEN on September 27th, 2011 [ 139651 Points ]

    @Trieloth: And it’s supposed to include the DLC that was released on 360 for absolutely nothing, right at launch!

  29. #30 by Trieloth on September 27th, 2011 [ 3426 Points ]

    @Eden KICKASS!! :) thanks for the heads up

  30. #31 by Isli on September 28th, 2011 [ 44885 Points ]

    @EdEN
    I think if I had never played either of these games before it would be a day one purchase for me. I will for sure pick this up eventually, if only because I have fond memories of the games.
