I’m starting this post off with a quick update; I’ve recently landed a full time job that takes up quite a bit of my time so I haven’t been able to update entries as much as I want to. I like to talk about all new releases but I only have time to highlight a few. That being said, I’ll quickly name off a few releases that I might have missed that really deserve an entry.
The Nintendo Wii-U is out and its selling quite well, it starts at $299.99 for a basic set and $349.99 for a deluxe black set which includes a gamepad cradle and two stands for the gamepad and console. Its got a solid lineup of launch titles that should satisfy casual as well as hardcore gamers.
Other missed new release titles that caught my interest: Assassin’s Creed III(PC), RaiderZ(PC), Call of Duty: Black Ops II(PC, 360, PS3), Sine Mora(PC), Planetside 2(PC), Natural Selection 2(PC), Karateka(360), Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask(3DS), and Scribblenauts: Unlimited(3DS).
Without further ado, let me introduce the highlighted new release for today.
Hitman: Absolution – PC, X360, PS3
After about a year of hype this game launches with a bang, it may have come a little late in the year to make it as a nominee for SpikeTV’s VGA, but its just in time for the holidays and specifically launched on the 47th week of the year. This is the fifth game in the series and players will once again be taking control of Agent 47 to carry out missions involving assassinations, stealth infiltrations, brutal executions, and don disguises to go incognito. I mentioned in a previous entry the game will introduce an interesting twist that adds online interaction and replayability that challenges players to think creatively and be diverse in the art of the hit. Over time we’ll be seeing more and more interesting contracts to take on that require the hardcore skill that the series is known for. Don’t forget to check out TwitchTV for any livestreams/VOD if want to see how the game plays, or if you trust Conan you can watch his little segment of “The Clueless Gamer” below.
I’ll add some wallpapers here for your viewing pleasure. Also added links below.
