The Week In Games: Dance War

It’s an interesting week with the long-awaited Darksiders III, Artifact, and Floor Kids on a new platform.


As a card game lover, I’m interested in what’s going on with Artifact, and I have stayed almost completely unspoiled as to how it works through this long beta cycle that has been running recently. I’m exciting to see what happens when traditional card game mechanics (and economic weirdness) fully unleashes on the Steam platform. Anything could happen!

While this isn’t a thin week by any means, you can feel the squeeze of the end of the year coming. We’ve had several weeks of big games, and now we’re getting an interesting mix of things like Darksiders III and cool ports like Floor Kids on Xbox One, Cattails for the Switch, and The First Tree on both of those platforms.

Anyway, I’m rambling, so here’s a list of games coming out in the next couple weeks.

I've played all of the Baldur's Gate games.



I want Darksiders 3 to be good. I want it to do well because I want to see that 4th game but I have a feeling this will sell terribly and get meh reviews. At best I expect it to be a 6 and a 7 and part of me thinks that’s fine, it’s ok to have a B tier budget game but after this insane year of blockbusters...let’s just say it’s going to be hard to not being thinking of God of War while playing.

I’ll be rooting for you, Darksiders 3. Lord knows the series does not get the attention or love it should.
