That’s not entirely true as I also care about Splinter Cell: Blacklist (360, PS3, Wii U, PC). Todd thinks it’s torture porn but Todd has never waited in the shadows for 15 minutes, patiently learning guard patterns so that you can make it through the next area without leaving a trace. I have done that. I have also spent not nearly enough time learning patterns and instead shot up the place. I have not forgotten the airfield. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (360, PS3, PC) also comes out this week but honestly, I don’t know enough about this game to know if I’ll play it. Does anyone?
One game I know I won’t be picking up is Disney Infinity (360, PS3, Wii U, Wii, 3DS). There’s only room for one game/toy franchise in this house and Skylanders safely occupies that spot. Plus, I just don’t care about Disney that much. In other release news, Sir, You Are Being Hunted brings robotic hunters and bleak countrysides to your PC. Dive Kick brings both Dive and Kick to your PC, PS3 and Vita and Telltale brings their excellent take on The Walking Dead to the Vita.
