On The Shelf: New Releases for March 18th 2013

Every week new releases hit the store shelves. How do you know which games to pick up? Every so often we here at Broken Joysticks bring you a list of the upcoming titles that will be available at retail. This week sees two huge releases – Snake returns in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Square Enix’s masterpiece Final Fantasy X gets a re-release on the PlayStation 3 and Vita.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes  (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360) – $34.99 (Physical Retail Disc)


Big Boss returns in this latest edition of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, sneaking his way on to the next-generation platforms for the first time. Those looking for the full Metal Gear Solid experience might be a little disappointed as Ground Zeroes is a smaller chapter in a larger whole, similar to the Tanker Chapter in MGS2.  Set in 1975 Ground Zeroes  takes place between Peace Walker and The Phantom Pain. Snake is sent on a mission to rescue Paz and Chico from Camp Omega. This slice of MGS V offers quite a few side missions in addition to a 2 – 3 hour campaign.
