Welcome everybody to Gaming Precision as April slowly draws to a close! It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for Gaming Precision to break down this week and get you ready for the perfect weekend gaming binge. Let’s just get straight into this week’s GP Picks!

One of my most anticipated games of 2014, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, is out now on PS4. I’ve been waiting for this game with trepidation, since I got a chance to play this title at TGS (Tokyo Game Show) last year. Now some of you may be thinking – isn’t this game already out on Steam? Yes it is, but the PS4 version of Octodad is, surely, the definitive version of the game with optimized controls and the power of Sony’s next generation console behind it.

If you can’t remember this game, then here’s a refresher. You play the titular Octodad, who is an octopus that is pretending to be a normal father and husband. His “normal” kids and investigative reporter wife don’t suspect a thing. They will find out your secret, if you don’t keep up the act, which is pretty hard to do. The controls in the game are wonky, but they still allow you a good deal of freedom in order to complete the very mundane, yet fun tasks that you will have to perform.

Let’s forget all about the murderous sushi chef and this game appears to be a fun ride, from what I’ve played. Anyway, check out this game on the PlayStation Store, if you like fun and quirky games.

Welcome to the “land of treasure, mystery, and danger in this spine-tingling dungeon RPG! “ Play as Oz, a young man with the incredible power of the magic eye. A power that allows him to seal away demons. Get a party going with up to seven characters to watch your back. Get all that loot from your battles and sell it off in Mislid to make your party stronger or rest up at the local inn. This title is out now for the PS Vita, so check it out, if it sounds interesting.

Other big releases this week include the first free-to-play game in the Soulcalibur series. Soulcalibur: Lost Swords is a weapon-based fighting game that focuses on the singleplayer combat. It is highly reminiscent of Tekken: Revolution, another F2P (free to play) fighting game, which limits the number of fights that a player can have and offers microtransactions that can remove all those pesky restrictions.

Much like Revolution, the title does take out or simplify some mechanics, however it still retains those core pieces that made the original games so popular. It is something that fans of the Soulcalibur series should definitely check out. It’s free after all!

Time for a recommendation on Nintendo’s struggling console, the Wii U. The NES Remix was released late last year and was fairly well received. Now the company’s back at it again with NES Remix 2, that includes 12 great games from the old days of console gaming.

Dr. Mario, Ice, Hockey, Kid Icarus, Kirby’s Adventure, Mario Open Golf, Metroid, Punch-Out, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Wario’s Woods and  Zelda II: The Adventure of Link are all there ready for player to relive some of the greatest moments in video game history. The compilation is out now, so check it out whenever you have the time.

That’s all for this week’s GP Picks, but remember that we’ll be back here every Friday in order to recommend you four great games to check out on your weekend.
