New Releases – July 2014
…wow it really *is* the Summer Game Drought isn’t it? Only a handful of games coming out this month…barely even that. Ah well I’m sure a pleasant surprise will show up out of nowhere on some service. Optimism!
One Piece: Unlimited World Red (3DS, WiiU, PS3, Vita)
The 4th game in the “Unlimited” series which started with Unlimited Cruise on Wii. Basically a One Piece action RPG thing. In some ways I like the Wii game more, but the addition of co-op makes this one very intriguing! 2-Player split-screen on consoles and 4-player local on portables! Sign me up! Unfortunately the WiiU release is download only so I had to settle for the PS3 version. A shame as you can transfer data between Vita and PS3 as well as 3DS and WiiU. Ah well, it’s a pretty alright game thus far but I need to ger deeper into it.
Abyss Odyssey (XBLA, PSN)
Some kind of 2.5D Metroidvania looking thing. Shows promise!
Scooby-Doo! & Looney Tunes Cartoon Universe: Adventure (3DS)
Alright, what? I know there was a lame online game with this title but apparently WayForward is developing something on 3DS? Is it a port of the lame online game or something new? Mark this one for “curiosity”.
