The Week In Games: Cowboy Throne

This week delivers a Disgaea port, a comedic kart racer, and the cowboy game that everyone’s been hollering about.


I know that you’re probably getting super excited about the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 this week, but the truth is that there’s all sorts of things to be enthused about this week. If you’re the dancing type, you might want to consider Just Dance 2019, which will almost certainly deliver some chills for those of us who like dancing games. If you’re more of a sit down person, then Thronebreaker, the card-and-combat game continuing the Witcher universe is probably going to be for you.

Honestly, I am just thrilled that Windjammers is hitting the Switch. That is almost certainly the best platform for that game, and I could see myself getting into a competitive match of disc-throwing action.

And also, I guess, Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out.

I know it’s not a *release* per say, but Fallout 76 is having its B.E.T.A. on the 23rd for Xbox One and the 30th for PS4 and PC. It’s essentially just the early release, given that progress carries over. Well, other than the annoying server downtime. And the fact there’s going to be a few dark days to an entire week between it and launch. But hey, it’s still a major thing.
