New Game Tuesday 12/4-12/10


"New Game Tuesday" is now on gameinfinite.net! Every week I research the upcoming games launching on that week, either for the first time or major ports, updates, or versions, and help share the news with all of you! Until now NGT has been on social media, with a brief promo and explanation of the games. Now, a longer version will also be available on gameinfinite.net/news to help provide a more ubiquitous experience across Game Infinite.

New Game Tuesday show cases major game releases from Tuesday to the following Monday. This week is a big one! We see several major releases across multiple platforms. Scroll down to see if any of the major releases appeal to you!

1. Just Cause 4 (Standard Edition)

Release Date: 12/3* Initially Planned for 12/4, moved up a day early last minute

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

4K Support: Yes

Developer: Avalance Studios

Publisher: Square Enix

What is going to allow Just Cause 4 to stand out in such an overcrowded Holiday 2018 is its physics. This game has crazy out of this world graphics that look amazing on powerful PC's or high end consoles like the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. This is a game I almost glanced over, until I watched one of the recent trailers. In my opinion, it is coming out at probably the worst time. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday which contained some of the craziest gaming deals I have ever seen, just ending right behind us, many gamers are now broke. Gamers could have gotten Spiderman PS4 bundles for as low as 199$. The mega juggernaut that is Red Dead Redemption 2 is just releasing its Online mode this week. Artist classics that are some of the best games of the year like God of War and Detroit Become Human were under 20$ this year. Call of Duty Black Ops 4, could be found for under 40$! With so many games releasing, and so many hot titles heavily discounted. Releasing the week after black friday, and after some of the biggest games of the year, it is going to be difficult for JC4 to stand out. Remember we are only a week a way from Super Smash Bros. I hope the timing doesn't hurt this game, because if this game is on your back burner or not even on your radar at all like it was mine, just watch a few trailers and give it another chance. This open world chaos simulator looks to be a grand time.

2. Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Release Date: 11/27* Staggered to all users across the week.

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

4K Support: No

Developer: Nintendo

Publisher: Nintendo

Arguably the biggest release of the week and the month is Super Smash Bros Ultimate. SSBU is not only going to be the largest and most ambitious Smash game, it is going to be one of the biggest fighting games ever, in more ways than one. Featuring over 75 characters, it has an almost ridiculous amount of characters that will be an embarrassment of riches. Nintendo has bet big on this Holiday, having almost completely devoting marketing and Nintedo Directs to this title. This game looks to have everything, massive roster, story mode, multiple modes and maps. I can't wait to do battle with my friends!

3. Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden

Release Date: 12/04

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

4K Support: Runs at 3K on One X or PS4.

Mutant Year Zero is a "tactical adventure game" that combines turn-based combat similar to that of the XCOM games with elements story, exploration, and stealth. A team of Mutants exploreds a post-apocalyptic Earth. This game is made by the minds behind some of the Hitman and Payday games.

4. Thronebreaker: the Witcher Tales

WITCHER 4 IS HERE! ...Just Kidding. Here's this instead.

5. Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek

Release Date: 11/28 (Update)

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch

Developer: TinyBuild LLC

Publisher: Gearbox

Hello Neighbor was a buggy poor mess of a game that everyone should have skipped last year. It sits at a 39% on metacritic, and even the generous IGN gave it a 4/10. Well...here's another one right away, because why not! Play hide and seek in this new prequel. Temper those expectations.

6. PUBG (PS4)

Release Date: 12/7

Platforms: PC, Xbox, iOS, NEW on PS4

4K Support: Yes

Developer: Bluehole, PUBG Corporation

Publisher: PUBG Corporation

Dispite the world wide fame and success of Fortnite, it all started with PUBG. Battle Royale mode is a buzz world in the gaming world, and it all started with PUBG. It launched to popularity first on PC, then Microsoft scored a huge win by bringing the game to Xbox One. It was a huge boost to the console, and now...the time has come for this awesome shooter to come to Playstation fans.

7. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice RETAIL EDITION

Release Date: 12/4* Retail Edition brings this award winning game to phyiscal debut.

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4

Developer: Ninja Theory

Publisher: 505 Games (for retail edition), Ninja Theory

This award winning game is finally launching in full retail form. I have been eager to play this game, but I love building my physical collection of games. As a rule I try to avoid getting digital only games, and all the fan fair for this title has made it difficult to follow that rule. I kept saying "They have to make it physical eventually". Well, here we are over a year later and it is finally here.

Hellblade follows the journey of Senua on her journey. This game has been taughted for its amazing visuals, audio story telling, and its depictions and commentaries surrounding mental illness. It has one many awards and was one of the greatest indie titles of 2017.

8. Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight, Persona 4 Dancing All Night, Persona 5 Dancing Star Night

Release Date: 12/4

Platforms: PS4, PS Vita,

Developer: P-Studio

Publisher: NA: Atlus USA

I don't even know what to make of these games. Its a weird looking button masher dance game? Set in the persona universes. Well, if you want to watch your favorite persona characters awkwardly dance, perhaps pick up one of these full priced mini games.

9. Monster Boy

Release Date: 12/4

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4 Nintendo Switch

Developer: FDG Entertainment, The Game Atelier

Publisher: Sega, FDG Entertainment

A spiritual successor to the Wonder Boy games, Monster Boy is a platform game launching on multiple platforms. The graphics look pretty good compared to most platformers we get today. Although, I have to wonder if a 2D platformer in 2018 can warrent a 40$ price tag. I had similar questions about Kirby, Donkey Kong, Mario U, and Yoshi having full price tags on Switch, and those are well known characters. Can a unknown really carry it at that price?

9. Command and Conquer: Rivals

Release Date: 12/4

Platforms: iOS, Android

Developer: EA Redwood Studios

Publisher: EA

Announced to mixed first impressions to long term fans of the franchise. Command and Conquer has always been a pc tacticle turn based strategy game, and it getting the "mobilfication" by EA of all people is scaring some fans. However, the game looks pretty fun and may surpirse fans who are just leary of mobile games. Hopefully it will be a success and give mobile even more great games to attract hard core gamers.

As always, stay tuned here on Game Infinite News for the latest gaming news! Check back next week for New Game Tuesday!
