Games Out This Week 14/12/2015 – 20/12/2015
Hey there fellow gamers, Monday morning has rocked around again as quickly as ever. How was the weekend for you, I faced the masses in the shops and came out to tell the tale – did you fair as well? I waffle on about my weekend but I know you don’t want to hear about that, you want to know what games are out this week. So make sure you have your coffee to hand and are sitting comfortably, the hype train has just pulled in and we are ready to board.
King’s Quest Chapter 2: Rubble Without A Cause
King’s Quest – Rubble Without A Cause is the second of five chapters in the new, critically acclaimed reimagining of the classic King’s Quest game series. In this latest adventure, King Graham takes players back to his first test as ruler of Daventry. When a mischievous horde of goblins takes his kingdom hostage, a newly crowned & woefully unprepared Graham must rise up to free his people & prove himself the leader he was destined to become. Will Graham & his friends unearth a way to escape their rock-brained captors? Will he take for granite everything he learned as an adventurer? Does he have the stones to reclaim his mantle & lead his kingdom to safety? Will the hat make it out ok? It’s time to tell your story.
Battle High 2 A+
A new breed of human had evolved — one that could not only manipulate the elements of earth, fire, sky, water, and energy, but manifest them as well. This comic-book-like phenomenon was investigated by government and scientists for years, but their work always came back inconclusive as to how or why some individuals were able to command the elements in such a way. These individuals, dubbed Elementals, faced severe segregation and prejudice from a terrified public. Peaceful protests ensued, and soon, the fear mongering disappeared in many areas except for a few, one of which was schools. One of these schools is known as San Bruno where Elementals learn all the things that normal American students do but also to harness and control their powerful abilities, known as Elemental Chi. There, a dangerous gang known as “The Rivals” resides. Made up of the most popular and dangerous students, they rule the school, under the radar of the faculty, striking fear into others. Some strive to stop their reign of intimidation while others just try to survive.
ARK: Survival Evolved
As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, use your skill and cunning to kill or tame & ride the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land. Hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements, while teaming up with or preying upon hundreds of other players to survive, dominate… and escape! Coming to the game preview programme this week before it’s full release in June 2016, and along with it comes a whole host of Xbox exclusives.
A very short and sweet train ride this week, three titles to pick from or you can be a boss and get them all. King’s Quest Chapter 2: Rubble Without A Cause looks to be an excellent follow on from chapter 1, Battle High 2 A+ gives us a classic retro fighter game that will throw you back in time to your arcade days and ARK: Survival Evolved is an exciting prospect that combines the survival of online multiplayer with the cunning of resources harvesting to provide a unique experience. I would love to know if you plan to get one, all or none of the games out this week – shout it out in the comments.
