The Week Ahead!


With a lot of gaming's heavy hitters being released next month, it's quite easy to forget that we've got some of those coming in October to be precise. Mid-October. Next week. We've got a line up of 4 new releases ready to compete for sales, all releasing on the 23rd! First up, we've got the return of a franchise thought dead: Guitar Hero Live For the PS3, 4 Xbox One, 360 and Wii U! The newest entry is brought to you by Freestyle games, and brings new gameplay modes, a more realistic visual style where the audience reacts to you, and a cool new guitar. Will its reintroduction into gaming be successful, and will it compete against the other music based game released recently, Rock Band 4? We'll have yet to see, but these guys created DJ Hero, so it's not like they're newbies in the music-game business.

Another large release is Assassin's Creed Syndicate for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Now set in 1868 London, this has you taking control of new assassins Jacob and Evie Frye as they try and take out those who have a corrupt hold in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. The player will be able to take control of their own gang, and infiltrate locations with gadgets like the rope launcher and a...cane sword. There hasn't been much hype for this game, probably because Unity had such a horrible launch, it looks decent though. Hopefully Ubisoft have learnt their lesson, and can switch it up enough to make this game more worthwhile.

Moving on, Just Dance 2016 is looking to jive its way onto multiple systems, specifically for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii and Wii U. There's not that much that has changed- you still dance along with a virtual person on your screen. The only thing that has is the addition of a smartphone app and of course new music to go along with the times. Pick it up if you want something for a party, but if you want anything innovating, it's just the same as last time.

Last but not least is the newest in the adventures of the half-pint hero Link for the 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes. This takes the dungeon exploring and item finding elements of previous games and adds two friends- also Links- to the mix, similar to the old Zelda 4 Swords. Made with the visual style of the previous game Link Between Worlds in mind, this also adds a new mechanic called Totems, which involve Links working together to accomplish whatever it is that requires exactly 3 of them. Haven't heard anything about it, but the last one was good and if this one shakes it up with more people then why not, right?

Well, do any of these appeal to you guys? Let us know below!
