The Week In Games: Mr. President, Your Mech Is Ready

After years and years of being a Japan-only Xbox release, Metal Wolf Chaos is finally come out in more places later this week. Now we can all experience the fun of being the President of The United States and using a giant mech to fight the Vice President’s evil army.

This weekend has sucked due to some terrible acts of violence and hatred that happened over here in the US. So I don’t really have anything funny or interesting to add to this post. Sorry. My brain is just fried.

The week isn’t very exciting. Beyond Metal Wolf Chaos XD, it’s mostly ports and some smaller games. For superhero fans, DCUO is coming to the Switch and so too is Darksiders II.

The Week In Games: Too Many Zombies!

Screenshot: Focus Interactive/Saber

Once again, it is time to kill some zombies. World War Z comes out this week and brings with it thousands of zombies. Literal hordes of zombies. I might even say too many zombies. How much time do you think I have, World War Z. Do you think I can kill all of these things? I got things to do, folks.

I watched some gameplay of World War Z a moment ago, before writing this, and I was immediately reminded of that fact that we don’t have a Left 4 Dead 3. Not a knock on World War Z, it looks fine. But why are we this many years away from L4D2 and we have no official update on a sequel? I hate it.

Outside the zombies of World War Z, the week is filled with some other releases. Final Fantasy X/X-2 are showing up on some new platforms, Katana Zero looks amazing and Switch owners get to experience the cartoon platformer Cuphead. And look, hidden on this list is a Vita game. That little console will never die. It is like a zombie!

The Week In Games: Might As Well Jump

Screenshot: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.

Everyone’s favorite uncomfortably detailed manga dream team leads a powerful and stylish week of new games. I mean, just look at that hair.

In high school I was a big fan of the various series featured in the long running Shonen Jump magazine, as well as the many television shows they had inspired. I bought volume after volume of Yu-Gi-Oh, Naruto, Shaman King, and more. It’s too bad crossover games like Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars for the Nintendo DS never made their way stateside back then. It’s wild to think that Jump Force represents half a century of iconic characters from the legendary comic publication.

Jump Force is joined by big hitters like Far Cry: New Dawn, Metro Exodus, and the long-awaited Crackdown 3. And what’s this? The long neglected Vita is even getting a game here in early 2019. There’s a little something for everyone.

Check it out.
