This Week’s Videogame Release

There are a couple of interesting games hitting store shelves this week. As a sci-fi nerd, I’m excited to see what Digital Extremes delivers with the new Star Trek game, which is based on JJ Abrams’ Star Trek universe. I loved the first movie and I’m a fan of the developer, so I have high hopes for the game. Survival-horror fans will want to check out Dead Island: Riptide for another dose of tropical frights. If you missed out on Dragon’s Dogma then you ought to consider Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, which is a re-release of the original with loads of new content.

Any of you picking up new games this week?

    No new games for me

    Should I be worried that Star Trek (The Game) is going to be coming out tomorrow and there is nary a game review to be found anywhere on the internet?

    • That’s often, but not always, a bad sign. I’m willing to give the developer the benefit of the doubt in this particular case.

        It’s a good thing I didn’t:

        Pessimism prevails!! I have to say that I saw this coming. I didn’t want this game to suck, but I knew it was going to, unfortunately. Oh well.

      • Yeah, my friend was telling me about the game…and it made me sad. He said it’s a buggy rush job. It’s a shame, because the developer is really good. I’m going to dig to find out what happened.

        It would be awesome if you could post what happened (if you find out). I’m a total sucker for those “behind the scenes” stuff.

        -M

      • I’m fairly certain I’ll find out and fairly certain it won’t be something I can publish.
