What's Out This Week: May 27th (North America)

Posted by Anthony Bacchus

Hack attack!

So you're browsing your local retailer's Xbox One and Xbox 360 section and have no idea what new games were released this week. No one seems willing to help and you feel alone and scared. Surely, there must be a way — an easy way — to get the info on the latest releases. Rest your worried head young Spartan, because at pX we got you covered on what's hitting retail stores and the Games Store.

Watch_Dogs (Xbox One / Xbox 360)

There's a lot riding on Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft's highly-anticipated hacking adventure. Initially scheduled to be released alongside the Xbox One launch, Ubisoft made the decision to delay the game six months for extra polish. Ever since it's E3 debut in 2012, its been labelled as one of the biggest reasons for gamers to make the jump onto next-gen hardware. Now, we can finally see what the fuss is all about when it launches this Tuesday on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

We would love to have a full review ready for you now, but we're going to be needing some extra time before we lay down a final verdict. Watch_Dogs is a big game with a ton of stuff to do all over its realistic Chicago backdrop and we want to make sure we don't miss a thing.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (XBLA)

After encountering a number of delays, Press Play's charming and challenging puzzler released on Xbox 360 last week. It was absent on last weeks' article because we had no knowledge of it beforehand, so we decided to throw it in now in case some of you missed the news. We enjoyed Max on Xbox One and we don't expect much of a difference between both versions but we'll have a separate review for 360 in the coming days.

It's been real interesting seeing Watch_Dogs make its first appearance at E3 with that jaw-dropping gameplay demonstration to its somewhat bumpy release. Despite that, our excitement is at an all-time high and we're going to be spending most of this week engrossed in Ubisoft's new IP. Will you be doing the same? Let us know in the comments below.

Who is really going to buy Max for the 360 when they announced its free next month for the XB1?

Thankfully Watch Dogs is finally here and more importantly it's actually a very good game. I've pretty much fully moved onto PS4 and I know a lot of people who have done the same whether it's PS4 or X1 but both consoles have had a pretty severe dry spell with the only games worth a damn being inFamous, Titanfall and if you're a sports junkie (I am), MLB The Show. Watch Dogs provides that lengthy open world experience though so this should be good. Doubt it gets people all the way through the annual summer drought but should at least get us through the first half of it and since I also have a Wii U and 3DS, Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. should help as well.
