It’s that time of year again. The trickle of fall games is starting to begin. Soon, it will be a deluge. Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4, The Last Guardian, Forza Horizon, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Dishonored 2, World of Warcraft: Legion and the list goes on.
If you’re not big into multiplayer shooters, you could always play last year’s best games.
The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V are bringing game of the year editions to the table. Today, you can pick up what ranks as one of the best games of all time for many folks. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition.
For 50 bucks, you get the base game, 16 pieces of DLCs and two substantial expansion packs – Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone. If you’re looking for quality and length, you can’t go wrong with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. If I wasn’t such a multiplayer shooter junkie, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be pretty much the only game I need.
If this trailer doesn’t sell you on The Witcher 3, nothing will.
Do you like your open-world action a bit more modern? Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience is just what you’re looking for. The story is convoluted as hell, but the action is tight.
Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain is packed inside The Definitive Edition. Along with every piece of DLC released for both games. Only the Xbox One and PS4 versions were fully announced today. The release date is slated for October 11th and is priced at $50. According to Konami’s website, “the Steam version pricing and content details will be confirmed at a later date.”
Even older games getting the re-release treatment
Want to relive even older games on your new hardware? BioShock and Dead Rising are coming in just two weeks.
BioShock: The Collection remasters all three BioShock games and includes every piece of single-player DLC. I’m more pumped to see the never-before-seen video series with commentary from Ken Levine. I love getting an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at some of the best games. And I have a confession to make. The only BioShock game I beat was BioShock: Infinite. I guess I’ll have to change that on September 13th.
And if you want to go on a zombie killing rampage with absurd weapons, Dead Rising – 10th Anniversary does just that. Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will cost $20 each when they release on September 13th. Get back into the swing of things before Dead Rising 4 drops on December 6th.
Remastering games is alive and well. And gamers enjoy playing them when they’re done right. Even EA is finally looking into it. The publisher recently told Game Informer they are looking into with the potential of starting with the Mass Effect franchise.
That sounds good, but I wish publishers would dip further back into their catalogs. Remember the Strike series of games? A full remaster of Nuclear Strike would be incredible. Man, I miss those FMV cutscenes. Here’s a video to jog your memory.
And when you’re done with that EA, give us a new Strike game with refined Battlefield helicopter controls.
Are you picking up any remaster/GOTY editions this fall? What’s one game (recent or older) that you want to see remastered? Or, just the multiplayer servers turned back on?
