This Wednesday and next Wednesday are going to be pretty weird for game releases as everyone jockeys into position for releasing their games before the iTunes freeze on the 21st with hopes of striking it big over the holidays. Even though there are a ton of games scheduled to be released, if it's anything like last year, they're all going to drizzle out at odd times as it seems everything to do with the iTunes store gets weird around Christmas.

Here's what we've seen on the New Zealand App Store so far, and I'm absolutely positive that exponentially more games will be released tonight… We just don't have iTunes links for them yet:

Stay tuned for what I'm sure will no doubt be an insane "Out Now" post at 11:00 PM Eastern.

        Yeah it looks amazing

      • one.sixty.four

        Yes, I am serious. It looks like a great premium game.

    • one.sixty.four

      Oh, and king hunt.

    • bigjack66

      It would be nice if they gave us a proper Assasins game instead of this! We know it can be done thanks to Backstab.

    • godofodd

    • Boris Nguetie

  • bigjack66

    Space hulks iPad only so nothing's out again!

  • vicsark

    Space Hulk o/
    2 Gb file and 3.37Gb installed
    Got to make some room and spend half an hour deleting apps :(
    Oh wait, I don't need to do that anymore with my new 128Gb iPad :p

    • ZarieoZ

      Believe me I do. I had mine filled with only two GB left the day I unboxed it, and I only put apps on my iPad, no movies, no music. So, 115GB is not enough, which is what they trick you into getting when you think you're getting a 128GB device :-(

  • Blamlesshook

    What about San Andreas COME ON R* hurrryyy up I need it plzzzzz

  • otakuzod

    I wanted to see more gameplay from Assassins Creed. Do you ever get off the ship? Or is it all
    ship battles? I'm not sure I'm down with assassinations by cannonball only...

    • poorwealthyman

      Just on the ship, sadly. From text descriptions, they made it seem like you could 'explore lush islands', but it turns out you only do that with a telescope...

  • Inaba-kun

    Bit of a shame for Ubi to have completely ditched their fantastic wave simulation for a pancake flat sea surface in Pirates.
