Size matters with this week's new releases. "Huge" is the name of the game with the big release of the week, as the long-anticipated Evolve finally arrives on PC and consoles. Speaking of huge, what's that in the sky? It's a bird, it's a plane... no, actually, it's the moon, as Link meets the apocalypse in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D.

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?

      Evolve! At one point I was super excited for this game; now I'm waiting for reviews. What's the word? Is it going to be good?

        DLC + Preorder stuff made me not give a shit about this game in record time. Shame too, it looks like it could have been fun. GOTY Edition + Steam sale it is.

          That's my thought as well. It was just handled SO poorly, to be a blatantly obvious cashgrab... erm a "monetization strategy".

          I bet it's 60-70% off during the summer sale.
          I'll pick it up when they're not attempting to swindle me.

          I haven't been following. What's the story?

          Problem with waiting for that with this game type is that by that time nobody will be playing it, so the community won't be large enough to be able to consitantly find games. Or at least that's what has happened with similar things in the past.

            Generally these things get a spike when they go on sale. If that's not the case here for whatever reason, then I just won't buy it. There are way more games I want to play than have time to play.

        I enjoyed the alpha a ton! Didn't played the beta though. I'll let you know what I think later this week!

      This week is going to wreck me with a New 3DS and 3 copies of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Now to decide if I want to go further down the rabbit hole and pick up Majora's Mask too
