Fresh fall releases are coming by the barrelful this week across all platforms. It's hard to narrow down which one is leading the pack, but we'll give the baton over to Sid Meier, who's bringing out his futuristic take on the Civilization franchise with Civilization: Beyond Earth. For those looking to feel the music, there's also Disney's Fantasia: Music Evolved and Just Dance 2015. PS4 owners will get a taste of Wang with Shadow Warrior. And finally, the Wii U gets some hair-raising hell with Bayonetta 2! Check out the full list and our video preview below!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        I really enjoyed playing Rift. It had a WoW:BC vibe. Then like most MMOs, for me, the group I was with broke up, and I moved on. We got up to working on the second tier of raids.

      Although the video has some of these, the text has a number of inaccuracies. The Xbox One is also getting The Walking Dead: Season Two and Shadow Warrior (it's retail, for PS4 too). Just Dance 2015 is also releasing for 360, PS3, and Wii. The 360 and PS3 are getting F1 2014 too. You've only listed The Voice on Wii U and PS3, though it is on 360 and Wii as well. Not sure if you post re-release editions but I'll point out Need for Speed: Complete Edition should be out this week on PS3, PS4, 360, One, and PC. Lastly, The Walking Dead: Season Two for Vita currently has a release date of November 4th (Sony publishes the Vita versions of Telltale's games, so they aren't always the same as the other platforms).
