    Been a bit lax the last few days and that did see a few releases which will be getting other posts


    Region dupes

    Various countries in Europe have some interesting censorship laws so we do occasionally see multiple versions of games and so games get uncut versions released either alongside or at some point down the line. This would be one of those.
    NFO seems to be lacking and the SWAG release was region free but it is probably languages.
    The other release was region free but according to the NFO this apparently has German and Dutch.
    Sadly not the PAL English release of the title (the previous one was region locked NA only) but the other languages in the usual multi5 list.
    Just to add to the amusement the NFO has this down as English and Japan only.

    Possibly surprising that this went the XBLA route. The original naughty bear was not a classic by any means but some would argue it was unfairly dismissed by many. It is a kind of wacky platform game similar to some of the 16 bit era and Rare stuff but not quite as skewed and perhaps a bit more towards the dark humour.
    By all account a brand new worms game and something seemingly designed to stave off the claims of rehash that Worms and many games like it so often see.

    The borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC seems to be doing the p2p rounds as well. Oh and Rock_Band-2012-10-09-DLC_XBOX360-LiGHTFORCE

    Region locked PAL, NA street date is tomorrow so any time for that really
    Something of a budget title (definitely is on PC) the developers are Cyanide which count the recent game of thrones title (and the earlier RTS), the console and handheld ports of Blood Bowl (the warhammer based American football type game) and Pro Cycling Manager. Probably not counted as a powerhouse dev but they have several releases with several interesting ideas and have survived for over ten years so something must be happening. On the flip side on paper this is quite similar in some regards to dishonored which is doing all kinds of well right now.

    Words from Amazon sales patter

    Of Orcs And Men is a role playing RPG with between 15-20 hours of gameplay
    Experience 2 different approaches & switch between the Orc and the Goblin during all your adventure play
    A mature and dark atmosphere
    For the first time you embody green skins to fight against Humans!
    In a brutal world at war, where the Empire of Men seeks to expand its domination and impose its beliefs, Goblins are systematically persecuted and slaughtered, while Orcs, if not killed in battle, are destined to be enslaved.

    Play as Arkaïl, an elite Orc soldier of the legendary legion of Bloodjaws, a league of warriors devoted to victory in the war against Humankind. As a veteran group of warriors who have seen the most brutal of battles, the Bloodjaws are appointed to complete a mission that could change the course of the war: kill the one man responsible for all of the bloodshed, the one who has, for years, exhorted the human masses to loath and fight the green-skinned people... the Emperor himself.

    Goblin, Styx will soon join you to aid you in your mission. He is everything Arkaïl is not. While Arkaïl focuses on power, due to his incredible strength, Styx benefits from darker powers and stealth abilities, making him the perfect assassin. From the filthy alleys at the foot of the Great Wall to the depths of the Empire of Men, your heroes will face the greatest dangers throughout their epic quest.
