Seeing as games generally are set loose upon the market (normally) every Tuesday here in North America, at least as far as the blockbuster AAA titles are concerned; it's once again time for another list of this weeks releases. There's also always a few extra, little known gems sprinkled about through out the week.
Regardless if you're a fan of Valve's Steam service, EA's Origin, some other digital download client, or simply just hoping in your car and heading to your local GameStop, Best Buy or Fry's (which still only has a single location in the whole of Chicagoland) to pick up the newest releases, there's bound to be something for you each and every week. Sometimes you may even find deals at certain stores on new games that don't exist elsewhere.
Personal favorite this week goes out to Risen 3: Titan Lords. As the spiritual successor to the beloved Gothic series, which is a single-player action role-playing video game for Windows developed by the German company Piranha Bytes, it was first released in Germany on March 15, 2001, followed by the English North American release eight months later on November 23, 2001. The game took place in a medieval fantasy world, in which humans are losing the war against the orcs. After changing developer hands a couple times, it faded away. Risen then rose from the ashes, taking its place.
And now, the following is a list of PC games released for the week of August 10th, 2014.
- Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar
- Risen 3: Titan Lords
- Advanced Tactics: Gold
- Amazing Princess Sarah
- Mega Coin Squad
