NEW RELEASES:

WEEK OF JANUARY 10TH, 2016

 

I’m up again on new releases after getting to skip December since nothing actually came out the week it was my turn. This week we have a bunch of new titles dropping on my birthday although the one I’m most excited for I’ll have to wait a few more days for. Psyched to see 2016 starting off with three adventure games!

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India

Platforms: PS4, PC, XBone

Another entry into the Assassin’s Creed family. This is the second in the Chronicles series which is a 2.5D platformer. The first was set in China and the third in the series due out in February will be in Russia.

This one has been on PCs for a while but is finally coming to next gen consoles.  I have a copy on Steam but haven’t gotten to it yet.  Its supposed to be a great first person interactive adventure game.

This is a first person action adventure game based on NBC’s Heroes Reborn miniseries.  According to series creator Tim Kring in an interview with IGN he’d always wanted to bring a “universe of content” to Heroes so both this and a mobile game are coming out soon.

Tharsis

Release Date: January 12, 2016

When I was searching to see what this game was I saw 

Tharsis is a turn-based space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism. 

and then decided to just keep moving down the list and seeing what else comes out this week...
