There’s a wide variety of games out this week, from art puzzler Gorogoa to a set of Mega Man collections to the much-anticipated Dark Souls Remastered.


This week continues the trend of taking old games and putting them on contemporary platforms. Dark Souls Remastered, the Mega Man Legacy collections, and even an enhanced Space Hulk are all arriving so that you can relive past memories on better hardware than you had back then.

We’ve even got the throwback Bloodstained appearing this week, finally answering the question of whether we actually want to play a classic Castlevania title in this day and age. I honestly don’t know.

There’s fewer PS VR games this week, although there’s still a rising tide of Vita games appearing, as well as a 3DS game and a, to my utter shock, WiiU game. The past returns to haunt us, constantly, in this wild world of video games.

I’ll quit chattering now and let you learn about the games coming this week!
