October 27th 2017: Choose your allegiance!

October 27th FI

Tomorrow, October 27th, will be legendary game release day regardless of your preference. Even if you only like Hello Kitty Island Adventure or are allergic to sequels, there is no denying it! Three mayor titles will be launching on the same day and will be both competing for the top spot, and your choice. As many of us are not quite as rich as we’d like just yet.. we will have to choose, at least for now.

In case you’ve been hiding from gaming news for the last year, you already know what we’re talking about: Super Mario Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Wolfenstein II, The New Colossus! All three of these giant hitters will be hitting the shelve at the same time: October 27th… tomorrow!

Many people might have already made their choice, and some have been saving their money for some time to avoid having to make this choice! (If Fable III thought us anything, it’s that many makes you cheat out of choices!) However, for those still on the fence, or those who just want to gasp at all the goodness.. here’s one last pre-release look at the upcoming releases:

Super Mario Odyssey

If you own a Nintendo Switch, choices are you marked October 27th months ago. The next first party big hitter and Mario’s first real adventure on the Switch. Nintendo promises a return to the Super Mario 64 and Sunshine formula with big sprawling open world and from what we’ve seen so far, it looks amazing and the game will be packed with content. A solid choice for tomorrow, and one you will most likely be enjoying for quite some time!

Assassin’s Creed Origins

For years, we’ve seen a new Assassin’s Creed every year. Opinions differ, but the general consensus is that Ubisoft kind of lost their Assassin’s touch a bit the last years. After what was no doubt a difficult decision, the developer decided to take a year off and take their time to learn what makes a great Assassin’s Creed and how to freshen up the series! Judging the pre-release screenshots and video’s they did just that! The game will feature a stunning looking world, what seems to be a stellar new (origin) story and refreshingly new mechanics. This too, will most likely last you for weeks or months to come! Making it a great choice for tomorrows release bombardment!

Wolfenstein II, The New Colossus

Most likely the underdog of the October 27th release-trio. Even though Wolfenstein is a big name in gaming, it’s just not as current as the other two. That being said, it is a release not to be missed. The last game was great and the stand-alone DLC amazing! Video’s from Wolfenstein II depict an German occupied United States and B.J. is non to happy about it! For gamers who enjoy a solid shooter with amazing story telling, this just might be your best bet tomorrow.. even if that means passing up on Mario and Assassin’s Creed for just a bit.

Three stellar releases with incredible potential and likely a all new defining spin on the franchises! As far as we can tell, non of these will disappoint and will be leaving a lasting impression. The bad thing is though, nobody will be able to play them at the same time. So unless you’ve been saving for a while and have the next week free of other obligations, chances are, you too will have to make a choice!

What will it be for you? For us, all three will most likely be played this year and hopefully as soon as possible! The exact order though, is yet to be determined. We’ll be keeping a close eye on our ​Twitter feed and are looking forward to seeing all your experiences and screenshots! Regardless of your choice of this incredible October 27th trio! Happy gaming this weekend!!
