We spent a minute playing games last week, but this week we’ve got some new JRPGs to explore, VR experiences to stumble through, and sacrifices to make. Also, Owlboy.


This week is dominated by games coming to platforms they’ve not yet been to. Earthlock, Hellblade, Owlboy, and a few others are finally branching out, giving a whole new set of players access to them. We’re also getting some exciting new stuff like Extinction and Dead In Vinland, both games that have trickled out some info without giving too much away. Mysterious!

The number of Vita games has dropped off this week, ending what appeared to be the most productive streak that the console has had in a little while. The Switch is still releasing interesting games weekly, which continues the streak that the platform has had over the past few weeks.
