The Week In Games: Heads Up

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Heads Up

There are weeks during the summer where I struggle to choose a game to pin the weekly release post around. Headlander, everybody.


Double Fine’s weird head game is one of the few games this week that isn’t a re-release or repackaging, so it gets to be at the head of the post. We Happy Few’s early access on Steam is right up there, but I didn’t want to get everybody excited.

As re-releases go however, you could do much worse than Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2, which are going to eat a lot of my time this week, as they both did years before.
