Valiant Hearts: The Great War

June is almost over and it feels like it only started. Now that E3 2014 is behind us, the gaming world can get back to normal. This week’s major releases are Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, Grid Autosport and the PC version of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. Also releasing this week are BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, Another World, Valiant Hearts: The Great War and Shovel Knight.

Also, if you’re looking for more cool stuff to check out this week that sort of got lost in the E3 shuffle. Give Entwined on PS4 and Secret Ponchos (Early Access) on PC a look.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark – PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3Ds, PC – June 24

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is the latest in the War for Cybertron series of Transformers games from Activision. Rise of the Dark Spark is a third-person shooter that allows players to choose their side in the war between Autobots and Decepticons. Players will be able to protect or destroy the Earth.


Did y’alls like BeastWars?

The PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions feature the online multiplayer horde mode, Escalation. The 3DS version is a strategy RPG developed by WayForward. If we are lucky, Mark Wahlberg will appear as an unlockable character with a Wahlburger canon.

Grid Autosport – Xbox 360, PS3, PC – June 24

Grid Autosport is the third game in Codemasters’ Grid racing series following last year’s Grid 2. The latest in the series features 78 vehicles from different groups and tiers.

GRID Autosport

Fingers crossed Aaron Paul stars in the motion picture adaptation of GRID.

The game features 22 tracks with different variations, including fictional street circuits from across the globe. Grid Autosport also features 100 percent less smooth jazz than Gran Turismo 6.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare – PC – June 24

After a lengthy period as an Xbox exclusive, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is slowly making its way to other platforms. The squad-based shooter features gorgeous graphics and quirky characters from the Plants vs. Zombies series. The PC version will include all content released for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions, including Garden Variety and Zomboss Down, as well as a new Wild West-themed update with new playable characters, customizations and map.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma – PS Vita – June 24

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma makes its way onto the PlayStation Vita this week after being released in March for PlayStation 3. Chrono Phantasma is the third game in the BlazBlue series and is set after Continuum Shift.


Phantasma is so god-like.

The Vita version features the PS3 version’s rich story mode, with 30 hours of gameplay and additional story content. Chrono Phantasma will also add five new characters, two downloadable characters and one unlockable character to the series. It also supports Cross-Save between PS3 and Vita for those who want to transfer between versions.

Another World – PS4 – June 24

Éric Chahi’s seminal Another World 20th Anniversary Edition makes its way to the PlayStation 4 this week. The 20th Anniversary Edition was previously available on iOS, Android and PC, and is currently available for Wii U and 3DS on the eShop. Another World 20th Anniversary edition features the ability to switch between the original graphics and the updated HD look, three difficulty modes and remastered sound effects. The PS4 version will have Cross-Buy and Cross-Save features.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War – PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One – June 25

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is the latest in the UbiArt Framework series of games from Ubisoft. The game serves as Ubisoft Montpellier’s follow up to Rayman Legends. Valiant Hearts chronicles the lives of normal people forever changed after being drafted into World War I. The game will explore themes of love, friendship, loss and sacrifice. Players will control four people and a dog as they experience the horrors of the Great War. Each of these characters’ fates are tied together and the game will explore how these fates play out.

Shovel Knight – Wii U, 3DS, PC, Mac, Linux – June 26

Shovel Knight was born out of a successful Kickstarter campaign back in March 2013 and has been delayed a number of times. It is a modern homage to DuckTales, featuring NES-style 8-bit graphics.

Shovel Knight

There needs to be a game based on Yacht Club Games’ name.

The titular Shovel Knight is on a quest to defeat an Enchantress in order to save his love. Along the way, Shovel Knight has to defeat members of “The Order of No Quarter” to reach the Enchantress. Outside of playing exceedingly well, the developer of Shovel Knight has the best name in Yacht Club Games (granted it is no Boat Drinks).
