Games of October

It’s that time again! We've once again changed the layout somewhat in order to make things easier and cause less scrolling to get to the information that you're here for.



I really hope that everyone has been saving up because October is still looking like a brutal wallet crushing month!

Tuesday October 6th

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition

Sony PlayStation 4

Death in Darksiders 2 took a different approach to the Appocalypse than his brother War in the original Darksiders. Being less like a mature Zelda and using a bit more of an exploratory method with some MMO elements, Death explored the now wasted realm of Earth in order to clear his brother's name. Being given an upgraded treatement, Darksiders 2 now supports an upgraded engine, all DLC, and plenty of reworking to better balance the gameplay. Now here's hoping that Darksiders 3 and 4 can possibly make their way into our hands through Nordic...


Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax

Sony PlayStation 3 / Vita

Dengeki Buno looks rather interesting fighter with its lineup of fighters to go head to head against each other from anime and manga such as Sword Art Online to one of my favorites of The Devil is a Part-Timer! and one of my recent favorites Toradora! in which Robert recently reviewed. Who comes out on top? That's for your skill to decide!

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

Sony PlayStation 4

Nick's Previewed it, Nick's Reviewed it, and finally the rest of us normal Overlord Minions are going to get to play it!

Finally here is the fifth entry into the Makai Senki universe with an all new cast on a quest to beat the crap out of Void Dark, someone who's apparently has it coming for a variety of reasons with everyone that's after him.

Now I just hope there's some cameo from Valvatorez or at least a mention of Sardines!

Ride

Sony PlayStation 4
Microsoft Xbox One

Fans of racing games will have a bit to look forward to this month with Ride hitting both the PS4 and the XB1.

Ride four different categories of motorcycles with more than enough different models to keep you busy. Not happy with the standard look as you race around the track? Customize everthing to your liking and beat your oponents in class.

Rock Band 4

Sony PlayStation 4
Microsoft Xbox One

It's back.

This month is seeing the revival of both Harmonix's new baby Rock Band and its former child of Guitar Hero.

Transformers: Devastation

Sony PlayStation 4 / 3
Microsoft Xbox One / 360

The Nintendo 3DS is seeing a bit of love this month and one of the first such titles to grace it's sleek design is Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash.

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide

PC

After having worked on the masterpiece that is Civilizations V, the Sid Meier's brand took a look back out to space with Beyond Earth going back to the ideas it created in Alpha Centauri

Back for more, Beyond Earth is receiving its first expansion which hosts a slew of new gameplay elements to re-keep you occupied for days on end. Just rememeber to take a break every day or so as once within its grap, time feels like it stands still and nothing else matters but one more turn.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Sony PlayStation 4

The original Uncharted Trilogy is back in higher quality for the PS4!

Re-built and given a bit of a makeover from the PS3, re-experience the past events before the release of Uncharted 4! Maybe now is a good time to actually play the thid entry... I've at least played The Last of Us!

Tuesday October 13th

Dragon Quest Heroes

Sony PlayStation 4

A lot of us here at CGR are big Musou fans and all have our favorites from the Dynasty to Samurai, Orochi to the Gundams, and even over to the Pirates of One Piece.

Being a fan of the Dragon Quest Series I'm more than excited to finally be able to experience it within the musou style especially with my current quest of running through the series starting at the first and currently exploring the realm of the third!

Grand Ages: Medieval

Sony PlayStation 4

Having only having released on the PC and through Steam last month, Grand Ages: Medieval launches this month on Son'y PlayStation 4.

The Legend of Legacy

Nintendo 3DS

The Legend of Legacy is a throwback RPG to an older time where handholding didn't exist and if you wanted to know what was happening? You had to figure it out for yourself.

Using a system similar to that of Final Fanasy 2 (the actual FF2) as well as some of the Saga Games, Explore the Island of Avalon as one of seven characters available in this non traditional JRPG. Created by Furyu with former Sqaure and Level-5 members, Legend of Legacy is anything but easy and is a treat for fans of the more hardcore exploration RPGs.

A demo is currently available on the Nintendo eShop and it contains the prologue and the first two chapters with save data transferable to the full release.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege

Sony PlayStation 4
Microsoft Xbox One
PC

Wasteland 2

Experience Wasteland 2 on the consoles this month!

Friday October 16th

Yoshi's Woolly World

Nintendo WiiU

If anything needed to be said about this other than it's absolutely adorable and cute? Then the mechanics look solid and as an added bonus not only does Yoshi not need to worry about a crying Baby Mario, but Yoshi doesn't need to go at it alone as other players and drop in to help for an added fun time!

Tales of Zestiria

Microsoft Xbox 360
Nintendo Wii / Wii U / 3DS

Not being a parent, and thus not having younger children, this is something that I've not really heard of. But compared to everything else on the list, it looks like Monster High is a game for the younger audience and in such they've made it more accessible being on both the current and the past generation of consoles.
