Release Round-Up for the Week of November 29

by John Catuira

I hope everyone’s sufficiently recovered from their turkey comas because there are still more new games to buy.  Just in time for the Holidays, highlights for this week’s releases are below.

Two weeks before the movie release, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game puts the player on the planet Pandora, amidst a conflict between the indigenous Na’vi and the RDA Corporation.  While one side fights for resources, the other fights for its civilization.  The player gets to choose a side once released on Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Boasting a new Rider Reflex control system, MX vs. ATV Reflex separates steering mechanics from body positioning to allow for greater stunts.  The real-time terrain deformation promises direct impact for each race.  Off-roading fun to be had on the Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable and Xbox 360.


Bethesda Softworks once again steps out of their RPG comfort zone with a first person shooter.  In Rogue Warrior, you play as the notorious Navy SEAL operator, Richard Marcinko voiced by Mickey Rourke.  Step into “Demo Dick’s” combat boots and use 25 kill moves in several missions set during the Cold War.  Bust caps and snap necks in your choice of PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.


The complete list is after the jump.
