If anyone needs me this week I’ll be hanging around with my little Yarn doll.
Megadimensional Neptunia VII? Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth? Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel? Gravity Rush Remastered? It’s a week filled with games wanting to take use to strange places, and we can’t be everywhere at once.
Looks like my week is going to be spent with LEGO Avengers in one hand, Final Fantasy Explorers in the other. Luckily I’ve gotten good enough at Blade & Soul to play with my feet.
Maybe you’ve noticed Scott Cawthon’s shtick around release dates. It goes like this: Cawthon says he’ll release an upcoming game around a certain time frame. Then, he ‘surprises’ everyone by actually releasing the game earlier than that.
It’s nice to see a nice, beefy list of weekly releases again, even if most of it consists of Sony going crazy with the digital downloads.
At a time when everyone is debating which games were the best released during the year previous, it’s good to have some certainty. For a brief, shining moment, the games released this week are the best games of 2016.
That’s a wrap, everybody. Hit the streets. You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay in this year.
We’ve only got one day to finish Jason Schreier’s favorite JRPG and its recently released in North America sequel before The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel arrives. I just finished the first part of the first one. I think I can make it.
Just not a whole lot. At least we’ve got PaRappa.
Who has time to worry about playing video games when the city is being invaded by giant insects?
Just in time for Kung Fu Panda, Rainbow 6 Siege and Just Cause 3. Bethesda couldn’t have timed this better!
More Fallout 4? Okay then.
Last week saw only a handful of new releases as publishers got out of the way of Fallout 4. They probably could have skipped this week too.
Nothing really stands out in this week’s release list. Oh wait, there is that one game...
Is it Call of Duty week already? Man, I could really use a sandwich.
No, that’s not a My Little Pony reference.
Sure there are more popular games coming out this week than Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance Disney Party 2, but none of those are coming out for the original Wii.
That’s the last time I am typing out that subtitle.
All I want is to punch giant robots with my own giant robot, maybe turn into a car. Is that too much to ask?
It’s time for the basketball games with the number 16 in the title! Also, Mega Man Legends. Maybe I should have led with that.
