Games-May-15

Listen, before Geoff gets here I just want to quickly mention that Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe wasn’t a bad game at all, because it set the scene for Warner Bros Interactive that giving people the chance to kick the man of steel right in the lil’ Kryptons was actually a profitable idea. From that crossover that erased the stench of Justice League: Task Force forever (The Batman & Robin of superhero fighting games) came Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Fast forward a few years and much like anything decked out in spandex, it’s time for a sequel baby yeeeeaaaahhh. There’s also a few other games not related to Martha and Thomas Wayne getting a high-velocity lead injection out this week, that looks like proper fun: Farpoint hyper-jumps on to PSVR, The Surge busts out a tech-heavy stab at the Dark Souls crown and Fire Emblem goes old school.

That might actually be my favourite game on the list, as Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is perfect for any fan of the series who wants a challenge without any of the modern-day crutches of recent chapters in the franchise. Here’s the full list of games out this week, according to US release dates because we all live in a connected world these days. Some European dates may differ:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    *sigh* I’m just looking forward to getting my PS4 replaced… C’mon, insurance….C’MON!

    But once I do, I can see Injustice being added to my now dwindled game collection.

      Just curious, stolen or broken / fire / accident?

      Want to know if insurance will pay out for accident on something like that.

      • Original Heretic

        Theft. Fuckers broke into my house, hit my braai/entertainment area. Real hit and run. Laptop and PS4 were the main things taken.
        And my personalized Zippo, the bastards….

        As for insurance cover, it depends on the accident that caused your PS4 to break. Normal house contents insurance does also include “Accidental Damage”, though I know some insurers limit that.
        So basically, if you accidentally break something (like dropping a TV down stairs, a ball knocks your TV down off the wall, etc), you have cover for that.

    Uhhhhh shadow warrior 2 has been out on PC for 7 months now. Just might want to remove the PC part from the game.

  • miaau

    Mass Effect Andromeda came out late last week, in my house, at least.

    Just to let everyone know, if the facial animations are now FIXED…… Wow. Just wow. AND some of the humans do not look human (expression, subtle movements), the Turians do not look and move like Turians from Mass Effect 1,2 or 3.

    Enjoying so far, but it does detract a bit.

    • HairyEwok

      It’s said that Kristen Stewart was used for the Salarians facial expressions XD
