New Game Tuesday, Games Releasing 11/5 - 11/11

November 6, 2019

This week's NGT is a big one with one of the most hotly anticipated titles of 2019, the mysterious Death Stranding is finally arriving. With dozens of trailers and countless gameplay somehow still not managing to really explain what is going on we aren't even sure if Kojima really understands it. We also see major installments from Just Dance and Need for Speed. Last year's mega hit Read Dead Redemption 2 is finally landing on PC to the delight of the PC diehards. 

 

"New Game Tuesday" showcases some major game releases from Tuesday to the following Monday. Scroll down to see if any of the major releases appeal to you! 

 

 

1. Death Stranding 

Release Date: 11/8

Platforms: PS4

Developer: Kojima Productions

Publisher: Kojima Productions                        

 

Death Stranding is the ultra weird dream logic looking sci-fi giant that is finally arriving. After years of obscure vague weird trailers that only left us with more questions than answers players will soon be able to dive into this world. In fact, Game Infinite will be streaming Death Stranding on TWITCH on 11/8 at 7PM CT. Countless trailers and clues later and the game is such a mystery. It has been described as a masterpiece that is its own genre, a "Strand Game". Will Death Stranding create its own subgenre like that of "soulsbourne" is yet to be seen. So much interest and hype has stemmed from the mystery over information approach Kojima Productions has taken with marketing the game. Will the game live up to the mystery once players get a chance to play the game? Early reviews have been mixed citing just how weird the game is, meaning perhaps some critics just don't "get it". We did get some interesting news, in what was thought was going to be a Playstation exclusive, Kojima announced that the game would be coming PC "sometime" early next year. Making this announcement so close to launch when it could endanger initial sales only speaks to the faith the developer has in its new title. Death Stranding is the first gave to come from the newly formed Kojima productions after Hideo Kojima had a falling out with Konami and the subsequent split. So far Konami has produced nothing but trash since they lost Kojima so Death Stranding will tell us if Kojima's genius was in fact the major loss we thought it was. 

 

2. Just Dance 2020

Release Date: 11/5

Platforms: PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Wii, Xbox One, *Coming to Stadia 

Developer: Ubisoft

Publisher: Ubisoft

 

Another year, another Just Dance. Do you like dancing? Luckily there is an annual franchise for that! 

 

3. Need for speed heat

Release Date: 11/8

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Developer: Ghost Games

Publisher: EA

 

One of the first games I ever remember playing was Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2. I remember playing hundreds of hours in that game as it was the only game I had on the family PC for years. Need for Speed has always held a special place for me over other racing series for the longest time. In recent years, average to below average releases such as Payback or just the reboot "need for speed", have hurt the franchise prompting EA to have Ghost Games take a break and work extra long and hard on the next franchise. Payback was buggy and poorly reviewed, and the introduction of aggressive microtransaction loot boxes really impacted it. EA seems to be learning because Heat has been in the oven longer than recents and has been promised to be free of loot boxes now and forever. 

 

4. read dead redemption 2 (PC Port)

Release Date: 11/5

Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, New on PC

Developer: Rockstar Games

Publisher: Rockstar Games

 

Read Dead Redemption 2 swept boundless awards and GOTY's last year and was touted as one of the best games of this generation. It's massive open world set new standards and broke records. It was also one of the most cinematic and visually beautiful games last year. Massive visually impressive open worlds are usually home sweet home on PC, however, strangle this massive game that would have been home on PC did not arrive at launch. Rumors of a PC version circulated for months. Now, it is finally here to push even the most expensive rigs to the max. 

 

5. new super lucky's tale (New on Nintendo Switch)

Release Date: 11/8

Platforms: Xbox One, PC, New on Switch

Developer: Playful Corp.

Publisher: Xbox Game Studios

 

The humble but fun retro inspired 3D platformer that was enjoyed by xbox fans and critics was one of the few xbox one exclusives during Microsoft's dry spell on exclusive games. Since then major changes have happened at Xbox and one of those changes is a growing positive relationship with Nintendo. Microsoft is bringing more Xbox Game Studios games to the Switch. Super Lucky's Tale arrives on the go on the portable kid friendly console the game seems perfectly fit for. If you never picked it up on Xbox now is a reason to try it; however, it is important to note this is a Game Pass title that could be played on Xbox for "free". 

 

6. planet zoo

Release Date: 11/5

Platforms: PC

Developer: Frontier Development plc

Publisher: Frontier Development plc

 

Planet Zoo brings a major zoo sim to PC. I remember playing the original Zoo Tycoon on PC way back as a kid, and the modern zoo sims like these are very visually impressive and attractive. If you like taking care of animals, check it out!
