New releases for the week of Monday, August 31, 2015

A big week for the beginning of September, with a couple of huge releases onto consoles. One quick note before we start: Last week I had the release date for Disney Infinity 3.0 as Friday, August 28. It is in fact launching on Sunday, August 30. Now that that’s clarified, we can take a look at this week’s releases. This week we get the final collaboration between Konami and Hideo Kojima. Their fallout has been much publicized and discussed, and so it may be a bit bittersweet that Kojima’s final entry to the Metal Gear franchise will be on store shelves Tuesday.

Or suffer with them, if you like, when you fail to keep a character alive. Like Heavy Rain, Until Dawn has multiple endings, and your choices affect the outcome to each playthrough. But since this is a horror game, the big question is: Is it scary? The answer to that is simply, “Yes, it is...

Assassin’s Creed movie begins filming, image released of Fassbender’s character

The Assassin’s Creed movie, based on the popular game franchise from Ubisoft, has reportedly begun filming to prepare for its arrival in theaters on December 21, 2016. The movie stars Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Callum Lynch, an original character created for the movie’s story, which does not follow any of the games but is set in the game’s universe. Lynch is a bartender who discovers his Assassin roots through the Animus. Lynch’s descendant, Aguilar, was an Assassin in 15th century Spain, and by tapping the memories Lynch gains the knowledge and abilities to combat the Templars in the modern world.

SEPTEMBER 2
