The Week In Games: Child Superhero and Flailing Bandicoot

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Child Superhero and Flailing Bandicoot

The game release cycle is back in the swing of things post-E3, and that means we’ve got Captain Spirit’s debut, a Ys game, and some excellent Switch ports.

As a longtime fan of Dontnod, I’m more than a little bit curious about The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. I’ll admit to finding the trailer a little too precious and indie film-y, but I’m willing to take a gamble on it as my introduction to whatever Life Is Strange 2 is going to be. Captain Spirit is also free, so that means something.

This is also an interesting week for ports. The “Classic Edition” of Far Cry 3 is coming to a contemporary console, Lumines is getting a remaster, and Limbo, Wolfenstein II, and the Crash Bandicoot trilogy are all going to the Switch. It’s a good week for people who want broader access to some games that already exist!

HOw is Ys? I’ve never played well. I don’t need reviews of framerates and such, those thigns don’t bother me. I Just want to know if it’s fun, if it’s a worthwhile time sink.

Thank you.
