New Video Game Releases Week 28, 2016

Here is the list of this week’s new video game releases. Popular video games released this week are: Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – Descent DLC, Monster Hunter Generations, Song of the Deep, and ARMA 3: APEX. I’m pretty sure no one likes Ghostbusters’ globally hated reboot, but who knows, maybe its tie-in game will be okay? (I rant about it at the bottom of this page.)

Lastly, I guess here’s a Ghostbusters game trailer:

If you want a third Ghostbusters movie with the original cast (when they were all still alive) you can play the 2009 title “Ghostbusters: The Video Game” on PS3, Xbox 360 & PC! It genuinely IS the third movie with lots of cutscene, great voice work by all of the original actors, with a script written by the same people (Dan Aykroyd & Harold Ramis) as a continuation of the first movie! It’s an amazing game worth picking up. I have it standing next to my Ghostbusters movie boxset. 😀

What video games will you be playing this week? Any of these?
