New releases for the week of Monday, October 5, 2015

A wide variety of choices awaits us in this first full week of October. Budding musicians can rock out with Rock Band 4. Explorers can take off for the stars in Elite Dangerous. The robots in disguise throw down in the brawler Transformers Devastation. And those liking a bit of strategy with their RPGs can dive into Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance. Magic Mike XXL dances its way onto home video, along with the indie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Fans of animation get When Marnie Was There from Studio Ghibli, and in getting in the spirit of the Halloween holiday at the end of the month two horror themed TV shows, American Horror Story and Penny Dreadful, release their last seasons this week. On the big screen it’s off to Neverland in Pan, as well as delving into the mind of a technological pioneer in the biopic Steve Jobs, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes a high wire stroll between the Twin Towers in The Walk. Oh, and an action adventure game series for some guy named Nathan Drake gets collected for the PS4. Now, off we go to this week’s list, and, as always, release dates are subject to change.
