The Week In Games: Defiant Treasure Trackers

It’s very hot right now, so I guess it’s time for a hot week of games.

There are a lot of thinks I am excited for this week. The Lion’s Song is hitting the Switch, an adventurous Captain Toad is coming to the Switch, and Octopath Traveler is finally coming out, also on the Switch. This, uh, might be a good week to own a Switch.


That’s not to suggest that there aren’t some other things coming out as well. Defiance 2050 is on the consoles starting Tuesday, and there are some Warhams smashing sledges into the Xbox One later in the week. It’s a weird intermediary time for a fall that seems to be absolutely jam-packed. You can also take a breather. Just calm down, don’t buy anything, and breathe that sweet summer heat.

Anyway, here’s a short list of games coming out in the next week or so.

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


I was pretty much all-in on Octopath Traveler but Jason’s post from last week has me a bit worried. I liked both demos a lot but if it’s true the game never really connects the storylines of the different characters that’s a real bummer. I’m gonna wait to read a few reviews to see what people are saying about it. (It’s not like I don’t have a seemingly endless number of games to play in the meantime.)
