New releases for the week of Monday, September 15, 2014

While we certainly have a varied bunch of games heading our way this week, there don’t seem to be any real big titles. You can get some fighting in with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. Or maybe you’d like to spend some time in the kitchen with Cooking Mama 5: Bon Apetit! You can indulge your musical side with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, or you can dive into the post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2. On the home video front, one of the biggest summer releases (in more ways than one) comes to your television set in the form of Godzilla. The sleeper hit The Fault in Our Stars also comes to DVD and Blu-ray, along with multiple TV seasons (Big Bang Theory, Castle, Bones, Arrow, Hannibal, Sleepy Hollow, Grimm, Hawaii Five-O, and South Park)...

New releases for the week of Monday, September 8, 2014

This week is pretty much all about Destiny, the online sci-fi shooter from the makers of Halo. Bungie and Activision will definitely be getting a boost this week as millions (basing this on how many participated in the public beta) create their Guardians and head off to battle the Fallen and each other online in the multiplayer modes. For those not spending time shooting alien bad guys there’s NHL 15 for hockey fans and Fable Anniversary comes to the PC. On the home video front, the second highest grossing movie in the US after Guardians of the Galaxy comes out on DVD and Blu-ray. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of the best Marvel movies to date, and if you missed it in theaters you can now catch it in the comfort of your own home...

citizens of earth

Citizens of Earth coming from Atlus this November

Citizens of Earth, a downloadable only title from Atlus, is coming to the PS4, PlayStation Vita, PC, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS this November. The retro-RPG has you playing as Vice President of the World, and you need to recruit citizens to help save the planet. Take a look at the trailers below.

As you can see from the trailers, the game has a silly sense of humor. You recruit ordinary citizens like the Town Baker, School Teacher, Homeless Guy, and more to save the world instead of the traditional warriors, mages, etc you’d see in a fantasy RPG. The game is being developed by Eden Industries and published by Atlus, and is being said to deliver around 30 hours of gameplay for the price of $14.99. No specific date beyond November 2014 has been announced. Stay tuned for more details.

New releases for the week of Monday, September 1, 2014

It’s a new month, and a week with some fresh new releases. The biggest stand-out title this week is probably The Sims 4 bowing on PC and the Mac.
