New This Week in Video Games (10/12 – 10-18)

by Dean James


The fall gaming season is truly underway as we have another week with some much awaited new releases. The hard hitter this week is The Evil Within as an excellent prelude to Halloween in a few weeks. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel also debuts as a last-gen exclusive, while Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 hits the last-gen Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while also arriving on Wii U and 3DS.

We also have a few re-releases on the current-gen consoles of games that releases over the last couple years. For those that missed it before, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition hits both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 after arriving on PC last week. We also get The Walking Dead: Season One on the current-gen consoles, a week before Season Two hits those consoles. The retail version of the latter hits last-gen consoles this week already though for those looking to get it there.

The other big release of the week is the next round for Killer Instinct with Season 2, so be prepared for more excellent fighting fun.
