October Releases

I’ve been doing these lists going on eight years, and I always dread October and November. It’s when the games avalanche begins. Games of all types start coming out close to the holidays and things get a little out of hand. This month it looks like the Dancing genre continues unabated and the Plastic Rhythm Music games are back with a vengeance. So much to see here! With that said, on to this month’s releases:

Xbox One

Week of October 6th
Rock Band 4
Transformers Devastation – This game may not be very good (most Transformers games haven’t) but holy cow if this game doesn’t look like it is straight out of 11 year-old me’s dreams!
Dragon Age Inquisition (Game of the Year) – You know you’re behind on your backlog when Game of the Year edition of a game you’re currently playing is slated for release.

Outpost 13 – Everything about this games sounds so amazing that I’m just going to quote the Steam Store description: “Outpost 13 is a point and click adventure strategy game where you, a monster, must escape an icy planet by strategically killing off crew members while maintaining your cover as “Fen” the crew’s pet dog. Play smart and you might just make it off-world alive.”
