The Order 1886(PS4)

“The Order: 1886 introduces players to a unique vision of Victorian-Era London where Man uses advanced technology to battle a powerful and ancient foe.

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round(PS4/PS3/XBOX ONE/XBOX 360/PC)

“The final word in fighting entertainment. Two new playable characters join to make the largest roster in series history! Two fan- favorite stages make their triumphant return with updated graphics and gameplay. With new effects and skin shading technology, the hottest fighters in gaming look better than ever!”

Deadman’s Cross(PS VITA)

“Head out with your sniper rifle and an arsenal of other weapons to hunt down Deadmen. It’s always open season on the undead! Then prepare for card battles. The Boneyard is the site for The Deadman Duels — a popular television program that pits one zombie horde against another in a gruesome fight to the undeath. Join the excitement by going head-to-head with players from around the world, and climb the global ranks.”

Hand of Fate(PS4/XBOX ONE)

“Beyond the thirteen gates at the end of the world, the game of life and death is played. Draw your cards, play your hand, and discover your fate. Hand of Fate is a hybrid roguelike/action-RPG/deck builder, in which the player builds a set of cards into a deck, which is then used to deal out the dungeon floors through which they adventure.”

Paparazzi(PS4)

“Paparazzi is a two-player game of cat-and-mouse. The celebrity runs, dashes, and hides while the paparazzi tries to take constant photos of them. It’s a simple yet competitive arcade-action game! It’s a test of focus and reflexes and a silly take on celebrity culture.”

Pillar(PS4)

“Lost in an intimate snowy town, a palette of individuals are in search of a mysterious artifact said to bring great knowledge and understanding. Lead each character through their quest in this collection of mini-games, each with unique personalities and challenges… maybe their paths aren’t so different after all.”

Q*Bert Rebooted(PS4/PS3/PS VITA)

“One of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful arcade games of the 1980s is back in its classic pixel perfect 2D form, and a re-imagined Rebooted version with state of the art 3D game play and graphics that remain faithful to the original concept. Both versions are exciting twitch games requiring keen puzzle solving skills and logic.”

Treasures of Montezuma: Arena(PS3)

“Fight to survive! Help Montezuma make his way through the dark catacombs of a sinister ziggurat. Master unique gameplay mechanics combining traditional “match-three” puzzles, turn-based battles, and role-playing elements. Use ancient artifacts and mighty totems to fight bloodthirsty creatures!”

Trivial Pursuit Live!(PS4/PS3)

“A modern twist on the world’s most well-known trivia game. Trivia has never been so much fun. A more modern look, new reinvented question types, and the world’s best questions from the world’s top trivia authority.”

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse(Wii U)

“Then guide Kirby as he sets off on grand adventures in a hand-sculpted clay world. Draw lines on the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad controller to create rainbow-colored clay ropes to move Kirby around freely, or tap him to attack enemies or blast through obstacles. Transformations include a submarine, rocket and tank. In underwater levels, Kirby dons a swim mask. If his power level gets too low, a clay bandage appears on his head. “

Excave(3DS)

“Imperial City is at war! The King needs you to explore the perilous and ancient Labyrinth beneath the city – find out why this mysterious magical laboratory now spews out an army of powerful monsters bent on destruction, and descend to its lowest depths to rescue the missing Magician. Triumph in a test of your weapons & magic, or perish trapped deep within the twisting halls of the Labyrinth. Explore, fight and win fame & fortune, then return to the city above to heal, identify fabulous treasures and repair & upgrade your equipment. Are you brave enough to explore the treacherous depths?”

With The Order 1886 releasing at the end of the week, I really can’t wait to get my hands on it, especially that I pre-ordered a collector’s edition. At first, I wasn’t quite sold on the game because it didn’t seem to fit my type of games, but I soon fell in love with it when seeing what the game was all about. Also, Kirby is making a comeback and couldn’t have come at a better time. What is your take on this week’s new releases? Tell us in the comments below!
