Happy Tuesday fellow geeks! Haven't had a lot of time to game lately but I did get past the part in Arkham Asylum that I was stuck on and am now heading off to fight Poison Ivy. I've also found a great phone game called Tapped Out that is like a simplified Sims but featuring The Simpsons.
Now, on to the new games...
Tomb Raider comes to Xbox360, PS3, and PC today. This is the origin story of Lara Croft as she gets stranded on an island and must learn survival techniques while being hunted by mercenaries. This game marks 2 firsts for the series: a MATURE rating and a multiplayer mode.
Sim City lands on PC this week. It's the 6th version of the game where you will balance industry and green living among other aspects that will affect your city and its residents. This version also features a multiplayer mode where you can work with other cities to build "Great Works" like a space center or solar farm.
MLB 13: The Show is Sony's exclusive coming to PS3 and Vita. New features include a Beginner Mode, Franchise Mode with a big focus on your team's budget, and Postseason mode.
MLB 2K13 is the non-exclusive coming to Xbox360 and PS3. The big draw in this series is the Total Control Pitching and Hitting systems.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 hits Xbox360 and PS3 this week. The story mode is based on the most recent events of the anime series.
That wraps up the new releases but there's a few other big stories in the gaming world...
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was announced yesterday. It will hit stores Oct. 29th and you play as a pirate who is the main character from AC3's grandfather!
And that about wraps it up for this week. Plenty of new games and one to look forward to. Until next time get out there and get your game on!
