It’s Monday morning, it’s the first Monday in October and you have chosen to stop by here – for that I am eternally grateful to each and every single one of you. I have to say we have been rather spoilt lately with all these AAA titles and Indie gems that have been released as of late, long may it continue if I’m honest. Fancy checking out this weeks lineup of titles to see if this trend continues, I thought you might. Time to arm yourself with a coffee and a comfy seat, the hype train is ready to go-go-go.
Gears Of War Limited Edition Elite Controller
Crush the competition with the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller – Gears of War 4 Limited Edition, featuring a gritty, battle-weathered design marked by a confrontation with the Swarm, an arsenal of swappable components, and Hair Trigger Locks. Choose from a variety of Gears themed thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles for a tailored feel that provides game-changing accuracy and speed. Flip the Hair Trigger Locks to fire faster from cover. Improve your control with interchangeable, red metal paddles and rubberized diamond grip. Designed for the ultimate Gears fan, this controller brings it all together with an easy-to-use app, where you can tweak everything from trigger sensitivity to button mapping.
Warhammer: Endtimes Vermintide
The world is ending… though few believe it. The once proud city of Ubersreik now stands in ruin at the hands of the dreaded Skaven army. Few have survived their ruthless invasion. Team up with 3 friends and work together to thin out the ratmen’s forces and drive them out of the city. Assume the role of one of five heroes, and hack, slash, smash, burn and pierce the vile Skaven using a multitude of weapons. Fight your way through the city of Ubersreik, from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire. This is our last stand and only you can stem the Vermintide.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition: Remastered
Remastered lets you build custom Song Lists to group tracks into personalized practice sessions. Your favorite songs in Eb Standard tuning, just your daily warm-up tracks, the current playlist of your band’s setlist, all the songs that feature Dave Grohl – you pick the criteria, and Rocksmith 2014 Edition Remastered keeps ‘em separated. Everybody learns at their own pace, so Remastered lets you adjust how quickly Rocksmith’s Dynamic Difficulty shifts. Need a few more runs before you really feel you have it under your fingers? Simply ease off on the controls and the game gives you the time you need. Likewise, if you’re the type of player who feels like you’re ready to move forward a little faster, you can accelerate the pace, too.
It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family on the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.
Gears Of War 4 Ultimate Edition
A new saga begins for one of the most acclaimed video game franchises in history. After narrowly escaping an attack on their village, JD Fenix and his friends, Kait and Del, must rescue the ones they love and discover the source of a monstrous new enemy.
