Holy crap, your wallet is screwed today

November 18 is the new October 7. Last month's $300 day tamed before it began, as the launch of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor moved up a few days while Dragon Age: Inquisition was delayed to the industry's new busy day, today. It's okay, friends, we're here to guide you through today's retail chaos.

Dragon Age: Inquisition reached Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC today, and was received well in our five-star review of the game. Joystiq Streams took Dragon Age for a spin earlier this week, so those that want a taste of the game's first hour should watch the archived video. Meanwhile, Ubisoft dished Far Cry 4 out to current-gen, last-gen and PC players, a game deemed the "undisputed king" of open-world shooters that offers a "staggering number of adventures."



As for re-releases and ports, Rockstar launched the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto 5, which features a first-person mode that makes all the terribly unethical acts in the game seem that much worse (a GIF of which from our stream can be found below). We have further impressions of the PS4 and Xbox One versions to add to our original review of the game, for those considering the current-gen game. Ubisoft has another sizable release today in the Wii U version of Watch Dogs, which CEO Yves Guillemot said would be the "only mature game" Ubisoft will publish for the platform going forward. The "fluid and modern power fantasy" made us feel like a wizard on other consoles.

All of that doesn't account for other games launching today, such as WWE 2K15 and Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show. We'll have a review for 2K Sports' latest wrestling game later this week. Which game are you buying today? Share your pick with us in the comments!

Update: Lest we forget LittleBigPlanet 3! Sony's PS4 and PS3 platformer also arrived today, and our review notes that the game's adventure mode is "a grand showcase of bold imagination."
