December 2 - December 8
Either the entire Internet forgot that the Thanksgiving holiday is over in the U.S., or everyone's afraid of releasing a game right after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. After all, what more money do you have in your wallet after getting struck by Amazon's lightning deals or pouncing upon Steam's weak-limbed victims of price-gouging?
So in all my shame, I am forced to give my very first Week Ahead nod to one of them vroomy-vroom games you man-card wielding Tim-the-Tool-Man-Taylors love oh so much. If you didn't care to drop five-hundred big ones on Microsoft's latest chrome-headlight, bumper-mapping, filter-shaders Kinect jargon, then Sony has you covered with Gran Turismo 6. It features cars, race tracks, and cars racing on race tracks.
Otherwise, mobile gamers get Terraria on the Vita (I hear it's better on there), Space Hulk ported onto iOS, and Assassin's Creed: Pirates on iOS — for those of you craving the salty sea air and swashbuckling between bouts of brooding and stabbing.
From the looks of it, this is the biggest release for the rest of the year, folks. So prepare to be spending a lot of time on all those other games you bought that have gone unopened and/or are collecting dust.
