New Releases – week of 03/18/14


“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” (PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The story of Big Boss continues in what is set to be the prologue to “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain”. “Ground Zeroes” is only being clocked in at two hours worth of main story, which explains the $29.99 price tag, but will serve as a taste of what is to come in the “Phantom Pain.”

“Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster” (PS3, PlayStation Vita)

Taking a trip down to Nostalgiatown, Square Enix is re-releasing the PlayStation 2 hit “Final Fantasy X” bundled with “Final Fantasy X-2” in high-definition on the PS3 and PS Vita. Both come with the International versions of the game, which weren’t available in the States until now. This means that there are new stories and new bosses to encounter along with a re-worked soundtrack.


“Infamous: Second Son” (PS4)
Set after the events of the good ending in “Infamous 2,” you play as Delson, who is a new-found Conduit who’s learning how to cope with his powers in a militarized Seattle. Using motion-capture technology to bring the story to life is making “Second Son” a must have for the PS4.

“Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z” (PS3, Xbox 360)

Carrying the “Ninja Gaiden” name, “Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z” is anything but just another “Gaiden” game. Instead of playing as series protagonist Ryu Hyabusa, you’ll play as Yaiba, a ninja Ryu left for dead, as he seeks revenge for what Ryu has done. On your way to revenge, you have to deal with hordes of the undead in a comic-book style world.
