The Week Ahead

Image from
Now that the big game releases - apart from Just Cause 3, of course - are all out the way, the final stretch of 2015 is upon us, and it's oddly quiet. Don't worry - for those of you who overdosed on Fallout 4 and other such gems, this week's releases are full of... re-releases and game of the year editions. Oh.

First up is Beyond: Two Souls, which is finally getting a PS4 release on Tuesday in North America and Thursday in Europe. In case you've forgotten, you play as Jodie Holmes, a girl who's been linked with an entity she calls Aiden since birth. You follow Jodie throughout the years of your life, growing as you realise more ways to control Aiden. Admittedly, it's got some voice talent behind it, with Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page lending themselves to the project, but, in my opinion, this can barely be called a game. Some say David Cage is a genius, I just think that he's an idiot who just needs to make a film already.

There's also Bloodborne: Game of the Year Edition, launching on Friday for PS4. It's a weird choice, since Bloodborne only came out 8 months ago, but that's just what the industry is now. The GOTY Edition packs in the original Bloodborne game as well as its recent expansion, The Old Hunters. If you've not yet tried Bloodborne and want to get hyped for Dark Souls 3, now is the time. 

Of course, this week also gives way to a couple of crappy licensed games - any fans of Monster High can pick up Monster High: New Ghoul in School for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii or Wii U, likewise Fireman Sam fanatics can have their gaming thirst quenched with Fireman Sam: To The Rescue on 3DS, which (presumably) follows Sam's descent into existentialism as he ponders questions such as "If fires keep happening, why do I keep fighting them?"

Are any of you planning on getting any of these games? Tell us in the comments!
