October Releases

October’s list really highlights the fact that this generation of consoles is coming to a close as publishers rush to get out “compilation” discs with their successful games from this generation. This might not be a bad time to get rid of some old games and consolidate them with these “best of discs”. Either way, it’s clear that publishers are wrapping up the end of the console generation with a last ditch cash grab. Either way, it’s good for gamers. There’s quite a few deals this month.

Week of October 1st
Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy Edition – Ubisoft kicks things off with the first of many compilation discs.
NBA 2K14

Week of October 8th
Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition – In addition to these multi-game offerings are also “Game of the Year” offerings, and I would concur that Borderlands 2 is a Game of the Year, and if you haven’t picked up Borderlands 2 yet, this is a great chance to do so.
Skylanders SWAP Force
Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition
Capcom Essentials – There seems to be quite a bit of value in the disc. I may pick it up just for RE6.
Just Dance 2014

Week of October 22nd
Batman: Arkham Origins – Arkham Origins looks like it might be the last day-one purchase for me for this generation. But it should be a good one.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition – Guitar Bundle
2K Essentials Collection
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Storm 3 Full Burst
2K Power Pack Collection

Week of October 29th

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures – AKA Super Pac-Man Galaxy

Week of October 1st
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD – Here it is, my white whale. After much consideration, I have not yet purchased a Wii U. I don’t know if I ever will. If that happens, I will always rue the day I never got to play Wind Waker HD. Wind Waker is in my top 3 video games of all time and playing it in HD might vault it to #1.

Hometown Story (Harvest Moon) – Harvest Moon, you say?! Another chance to link my Harvest Moon review? Why thank you very much! (By my count, this is the TENTH Harvest Moon that has appeared in the monthly releases since I posted that Harvest Moon review in 2005. That means 1) I am old, as is this blog and 2) WE’VE HAD ENOUGH HARVEST MOON, NINTENDO.)
