Sniper Elite V2
In Stores This Week Around the World

It's dead quiet this week in retail, with not even one new release heading to shelves in Australia. And while other regions may fare a little better, it's certainly nothing to write home about.

So what have we got? Well, Japanese gamers can finally get their hands on the booty-filled timber-shivering RPG, Risen 2: Dark Waters, Europe gets the "Game of the Year" version of Sniper Elite V2, and North America gets MUD - FIM Motocross World Championship.

Told you there wasn't much. Still, at least Tomb Raider is out next week, we'll hold onto our cash until then.

Asia (via play-asia.com)

  • Risen 2: Dark Waters (Japan)

Australia (via ebgames.com.au)

  • ...

Europe (via amazon.co.uk)

  • Sniper Elite V2 Game of the Year 2013

North America (via gamestop.com)

  • MUD - FIM Motocross World Championship

Of all the games to merit a GOTY edition, Sniper Elite isn't one of them.

Cheap weak depending on the pricing on some of the games on demand deals.

'Sniper Elite V2 Game of the Year 2013'

... Is that meant to be some kind of joke?

@1 - The funny thing is that the GOTY "stamp" that games attach to a retail release of their game w/ all its DLC included is entirely self-proclaimed. I don't think that the game even has to be praised by the critics, sell a set number of copies, or even be regarded as good if I am not mistaken (I might be). The GOTY title can be thrown onto any game.

I don't understand why games like Sniper Elite or Dead Island have to attach that title to their game just to include DLC with it. Why can't they just come up with another name for the edition like complete or ultimate? Games like Borderlands, Fallout 3, and Red Dead deserve the GOTY title and to be released with DLC included with the game.

Anyways, I do like to see more games being sold with DLC on disks with the game as well, and hopefully DRM free so people who buy used games can still download the content.

@ 4 - Yeah. You could release it first time under GotY if you fancied. It's not like GotY is even the equivalent of an Oscar or something that is generally recognised.

Anyway, very quiet week. I'll try to power through some more of my backlog and might pick up some of the GoD sale games.

The real name for that GOTY edition is, Silver star edition' or something like that, and it was actually a good game, I never actually finished it, Don't know why I just stopped playing it, but when I was playing it I enjoyed it, and I hate sniping.

The demo of Sniper elite v2 was surprisingly good and a friend who picked it up said it's rough but decent, but with Tomb raider around the corner no way!

GOTY is a gimmick term.
