Release Round-Up for the Week of November 1

by John Catuira

Once we’ve all recovered from our Halloween sugar crashes, we’ll have to get ready for another week chock full of new game releases.

Band Hero looks eerily like Activision’s other rhythm franchise, but is being touted as a separate endeavor.  Band Hero lets fans of the of pop tunes rock out to more family-friendly hits.


Dragon Age: Origins is Bioware’s latest addition to their already strong stable of games.  A high fantasy role playing game, Dragon Age: Origins is an epic tale of adventure, romance and betrayal.


Lego Rock Band is the rated E version of the more hard-rockin’ Rock Band games.  Harmonix and TT Games have collaborated to bring us a more family-oriented rhythm game experience.


Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition is a compilation of the original Star Wars The Force Unleashed, add-ons previously available only through download, and a new story arc that puts the player on a collision course with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.


These headliners are by no means the entirety of this week’s offerings.  The full list is provided after the jump.
