Weekend Quencher 11/9/2013 – A Generation Gone Edition

Weekend Quencher 11/9/2013 – A Generation Gone Edition

From heroic farewells to tired goodbyes, this is the last Weekend Quencher before the 8th gen launch.

In the middle of the transition, we caught glimpses of new, exciting games we can’t wait to play. We got promises of surprise hardcore games joining Wii U‘s lineup. We got news that some targets for next-gen are met, some aren’t.

But most importantly, we saw that the bigger one is, the harder the fall will be, especially when your enemies are motivated to go stronger because of it.

And here we are, with the last Weekend Quencher before the next-gen of consoles launches, and offers a chance to refresh the industry. PlayStation 4 is coming out next Friday (15/11) and Xbox One follows a week later (22/11). Will you be picking any?

I might have struck a deal with my retailer to get an early Xbox One for review purposes, and thus, I might have a review up at or shortly after launch. Ernice will handle the PS4 review, while my bundle will arrive in early December.

So, what are you doing for the weekend? Keep in mind, BlizzCon is ongoing, and Games Thirst will be giving you the news out of the show; if you’re interested in Blizzard’s games, be sure to check our website every now and then until the convention’s last day, which is tomorrow.

I’ll go old-school on some Ocarina of Time 3D on my 3DS, Pokemon X, some Arkham Origins Blackgate on the Vita, and tons of Black Flag and Battlefield 4 on the PlayStation 3. Let’s hear you, Gamesthirstians!
