New Releases – October 2017

October is pretty chock full of new releases. Top mention goes to A Hat in Time. Partially because I helped back it on Kickstarter and mostly because it looks soooo adorable. I can’t say I’ve played a proper platformer in quite some time – hopefully I’m not too terrible at them to enjoy its timely hats and mustachioed villains.


We returned to Middle-earth, with Shadow of War picking up right where Shadow of Mordor left off (or was it where the DLC left off? I can’t remember) It’s a little unfortunate that most of the attention the game has garnered has been to with its rather nasty penchant for microtransactions. The original game was good, but by the end there was a define feeling of having done enough – I wonder what the sequel adds to keep it fresh.

Destiny 2 comes to PC at last. The beta was fun and while it remains debatable if I can juggle both it and FFXIV remains to be seen. To it’s credit, it manages to look pretty gorgeous at 4k 60pfs and still retains the brilliant solid gameplay of the original.

Mario is also back this month and he’s switched (see what I did there?) to the real world, in Mario Odyssey. Sounds gimmicky – but knowing Nintendo, it’s likely to be exactly the right gimmick to get people buying.

This month also has Gran Turismo Sport, Assassin’s Creed Oranges and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. Surely enough to satisfy anyone!
