Rebellion Developments

Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 & Wii U, July 2nd)

Did you miss the excellent brawler/Metroidvania game Guacamelee! when it came out last year? Well, now Drinkbox Studios is taking a page from Capcom and releasing Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, an even better, faster version of the game packed with new levels, bosses and characters. This is exactly the kind of game you should be playing during those slow summer months.

This Week’s Armadillo Roller

Armillo (Wii U, July 3rd)

Armillo is basically Super Monkey Ball meets Mario Galaxy with a little Pac-Man mixed in for good measure. You play as an armadillo tasked with navigating paths and collecting items on various spherical worlds. If you like Nintendo-style games (and you must if you own a Wii U) you’ll probably like Armillo.

Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution 2 (iOS, July 2nd)

I usually don’t pay too much attention to mobile stuff in Five Games, but I’ll make an exception for a new Civ title! The original Civilization Revolution was a very solid streamlining of classic Civ gameplay, and hopefully the mobile-exclusive Civilization Revolution 2 will deliver more of the same.

This Week’s Computer RPG

Divinity: Original Sin (PC & Mac, June 30th)

After a lengthy development cycle that included several delays, the partially Kickstarter-funded, Divinity: Original Sin comes out his week. The Divinity games are classic old-school computer RPGs — think Diablo, but with a deeper story and more freedom to cut your own path. Prepare your mouse-clicking finger.
