Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
In Stores This Week Around the World
Written By
View author's profile

There's a whole bunch of noteworthy games hitting shelves this week around the world so let's get stuck in.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is probably the pick of the bunch, a game described by our own Rich Walker as a "class act that gets pretty much everything right." High praise, right? Read our full review here.

Meanwhile, Saints Row IV also dubstep guns into stores. Rich also got his hands on this one, saying "Saints Row IV is a pure guilty pleasure; bloated, over-the-top and stupid, yet still utterly impossible to resist." Review here.

Next up is The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. I've got the review copy for that sat on my desk in front of me, so expect an in-depth review a little later in the week. 

But that's not all! There's also the small matter of Disney Infinity and Rugby League 2 - GOTY Edition hitting some territories. Plenty of choice for everyone then. Full list below.

  • Disorder 6
  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter [EA Best Hits]

looking forward to disorder 6. Im hoping its like disorder 3 an 4 and not like disorder 5. Disorder 5 was to stupid and ridiculous. It didn't take the fundamental values of disorder 1-3 which are solid titles but as rough as a dogs arse.

Rugby League GoTY? Seriously? I'm gonna go live on another planet.

Saints Row 4 if I had the cash. Sadly, my pockets are empty right now.

Splinter Cell and possibly The Bureau depending on how it reviews for me.

Good week, but really Rugby League Game of the Year? ...

Saints 4 (I tried to ignore it after SR3 but 4 looks fun) and Blacklist day one. I'll pick Xcom up later in the year probably but need to smash SC and SR4 before GTA V.

I won't be picking up anything since I have more pressing priorities (e.g. moving back into college) at the moment, but if Blacklist and Saints Row 4 are really as good as I've heard, I'll be giving them a shot somewhere down the line.

Getting Splinter Cell. Will get SR4 later when it's around $20.
I'm guessing that there will be a very short line at Gamestop so I'm probably picking up Splinter Cell at midnight.

Splinter Cell for me, and possibly XCOM depending on reviews.

Also, as much as I like the idea of Disney Infinity, I'm gonna wait for a sequel in the hopes that they use Marvel and Star Wars characters in it.

Blacklist, which I'm sure will be good but not amazing.
XCOM depending on reviews/demo
Saints Row IV, no thanks, gameplay footage seems super dull and I just played Crackdown.

Possibly getting Payday 2 this week. Blacklist next week.

August 2013 is huge epic month. Next month will see few great titles then August got so it is GTA V, Diablo III, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and FIFA 14 (FIFA not for me but I list it for next month great titles). September 2013 seem fewer great titles. Lol :)

Rugby League 2 - Game of the Year Edition....

-Puts my head in my hands and sigh's- Just... what the hell... you can't just randomly slap that onto a title, they need to make a rule about that title addition.

Had Splinter Cell preordered for ages, can't wait to get my hand on it finally! Other than nothing that appealing on the way until GTA V and Beyond=)
