The Week In Games: Dragon Balls And Monster Hunters

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The release calandar is ramping up with two of 2018's most anticipated games dropping this week: Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter World.

I honestly can’t even begin to explain why a ridiculous anime adapted from a manga that originated decades ago about alien ape-men beating the crap out of one another and other progressively more colorful opponents still holds such sway. It’s Super Saiyan magic. The lasting power of Monster Hunter is easier to wrap my head around by comparison: anytime someone tells you they hate grinding in a game they’re lying.

But the already strong week is also bolstered by two great smaller releases in Celeste and Iconoclasts, the latter of which has earned itself a special place in my heart for not only taking seven years to create but making sure to be available on Vita, with cross-save and cross-buy no less, when it finally released. While both games will definitely scratch that retro-pixel itch, there’s much more to them than just that. Hopefully you took advantage of the last few weeks to clear out your backlog.
