After the avalanche of new games last week, this week is a much different story. Can you blame anyone for not wanting to release against Halo 4? Master Chief is finally back after a five year absence and he has a brand new developer. With Bungie breaking away from Microsoft, the pressure of delivering a new Halo fell to 343 Industries and if early reviews are any account then they have delivered a complete package with a great story and the always engaging multiplayer. We will have our review up as soon as we can.

Rockstar has GTA 5 coming next year so what better way to remind people how great they are then by releasing “best of” collections. The first contains Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City (but no GTA 4, weird), Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition. So here’s the rundown: one great game (Red Dead), one good game (Noire), a good racer (Midnight) and a couple of good expansions for a great game (Episodes). Pretty good job Rockstar. Now can I have my GTA: Vice City HD remake?

Do you like your Mario with some RPG added in? Paper Mario is here to help you out. This newest in the Paper Mario series goes back to the turned based combat like the first two games in the series. Mario will have to find various stickers during his adventure to battle enemies as well as alter the environment to access new areas. 3DS keeps spacing out its big releases and should have a big holiday due to games like Paper Mario.
[amazon_link id=”B0050SX00Y” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Little Big Planet Karting[/amazon_link] (PS3) $59.99
What? You say you didn’t know that Little Big Planet had a karting game coming out? It’s Sony so of course you didn’t. Open up your poppit and get racing with Sackboy (or girl) along with all the creation tools that has made LBP so popular. And yes this is a PS3 only title even though it sounds perfect for the Vita. Here’s hoping we get a handheld version down the road.
Get ready for next week. Not only does a little game called Call of Duty arrive but we also get Epic Mickey 2, Sony’s Wonderbook and the Nintendo Wii U is almost upon us. We will have a special release list for Wii U to go along with our normal releases next week.
