October 2017 releases

  • Sin

Join us for our roundup of the films and games being released in October, traditionally the month of spookiness and wondering how early is too early to be thinking about Christmas.

 

Films

 

Blade Runner 2049

Harrison Ford reprises his role and is joined by Ryan Gosling in this sequel to the 1982 classic.

 

Thor: Ragnarok

Join Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as he teams up with the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to drive Hela (Cate Blanchett) out of Asgard. In a surprise twist Marvel recruited HM fave Taika Waititi to direct this and this seems to have provided a lot more levity.

 

 

The Snowman

Can Michael Fassbender stop an elusive serial killer in this wintry crime thriller?

 

 

Jigsaw 

A return of the killer from the 'Saw' franchise, and an attempt to ressurect the series. A timely release for this most creepy of months!

 

 

 

Games

 

Super Mario Odyssey 

A new Mario game on a new Nintendo console comes with some heavy expectations, but all the material we've seen so far point to this being an exciting and bizarre adventure for our favourite heavy-set ex-plumber.

 

 

 

Middle-earth: Shadow of War 

 

A sequel to the warmly received 'Shadow of Mordor', once again sees the somewhat possessed Talion on a quest to help defeat Sauron and save Middle Earth.

 

 

Gran Turismo Sport

 Sony's premiere racing series returns, this time VR ready, featuring live events, and for the first time in GT history, Porsches. You probably know if you want this already.

 

Assassin’s Creed: Origins

Travel back to ancient Egypt to discover more about the history of the Assassin order. Also jump on crocodiles and slide down pyramids!

 

 

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

A new South Park RPG, with it's subtle blend of political and social commentary and fart jokes. Could be good for a laugh.

 

Fire Emblem Warriors 

Join a selection of warriors from throughout Fire Emblem's history in this Dynasty Warriors-esque spin off.

 

 

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy 

Layton is back, only this time it's his daughter. Look forward to hair pulling puzzles and unlikely plot twists in a new mystery.
