Ah, the last On The Horizon of the current generation! Next week it will be all about the PlayStation 4, and the week after that, the Xbox One! But for now, we can enjoy the comfort of the familiar.
First up is a little first person shooter you may have heard of called Call of Duty: Ghosts. It was released on November 5th for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U, and will be available on PlayStation 4 on November 15th and Xbox One on November 22nd. It features a new engine, a new universe, “the next generation of multiplayer,” and a dog. Dogs are cool. Sean is going to be digging into the multiplayer straight away, but will be waiting to play the campaign on PlayStation 4.
It seems most publishers cowered before the might of Call of Duty: Ghosts and decided not to release any games this week… well, not Nippon Ichi! They’re not afraid of ghosts! They’ve got The Guided Fate Paradox which was released for PlayStation 3 on November 5th. The Guided Fate Paradox is a JRPG combined with a roguelike which sucked 60 hours out of the last two weeks of my life. Check out my article about how it makes roguelikes more accessible and the full review!
This week on Gamer Horizon, Chris survived the zombie apocalypse and is looking back at the Xbox 360, evaluating the system as a whole now that the current generation is coming to an end. Then there’s Sean, who had been struggling but finally settled on a score for his review of WWE 2K14. Ted’s got his hands full of Pokemon and AquaPazza, so expect a couple articles from him within the next week or two. We’ve also got our weekly Top 5 list, and this one is going to be interesting, so check back later this week for that and plenty more on Gamer Horizon!
