The Game Bakers’ Squids series has already carved success on the mobile platform with the original Squids and Squids: Wild West. It seems only natural progression for a title with lush visuals and kooky character design receives a port on to the Nintendo Wii U platform. Tweaked for gaming consoles, Squids Odyssey retains its charm, with a gentle helping of features for first time calamari adventurers.

With the holiday season fast approaching, bored children will again be ushered off to cinemas around the country to watch the latest animated feature offerings, one of which is DreamWorks’ Turbo. As is often the case, a movie tie-in video game has been produced to coincide with the movie release, yet Turbo: Super Stunt Squad isn’t quite what you would expect.
The legendary Sam Fisher is back and the stakes have never been higher. With America under attack from a terrorist group called the Engineers, it’s up to the grizzled hero and his band of Fourth Echelon pros to bring them in or take them down. Fans will instantly notice that Sam has undergone something of a facelift, with his youthful and muscular appearance only bolstered by the change in voice actor. Despite looking like a battle-worn Commander Shepard, our hero still has all the skills needed to bust some heads and ultimately save the world.
Resident Evil: Revelations was first released last year as an exclusive title for the Nintendo 3DS and proved to be a quality Resident Evil experience. Unfortunately being relegated to a single platform release meant many gamers may have missed out on this portable horror gem.
After the mixed reception and lacklustre showing from Resident Evil 6, Capcom have ported Revelations over to the home console and Windows PC for more gamers to enjoy, and possibly as a sign of redemption for the Resident Evil franchise.
Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 is one of those games I really want to be amazing. Tecmo Koei’s Musou (aka. Dynasty Warriors) style gameplay with the over-the-top violence of Fist of the North Star seems like a perfect one-two combination but the final product leaves much to be desired when compared against the Dynasty Warriors flagship series.

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper brings the battle to Wii U, the first title in the long-running Dynasty Warrior series to grace the newest Nintendo entry in the home console market. Hyper is a expanded port of the original Warriors Orochi 3 released back in early 2012 for (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) and as such, with a new hardware and unique capabilities, one would imagine Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper to be the most comprehensive version in the Orochi series thus far. The Wii U release packs together exclusive content and new features but stumbles in technically execution to make it a truly brilliant.
