The Week In Games: Port Season

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Port Season

After the first week of 2018 it’s still slim pickings looking ahead.

The Xbox One is getting some old PC games, a bunch of stuff I’ve never head of is hitting PS4, and the Nintendo Switch continues to build out its library with some of the best games of the last few years. You could do worse than to revisit Super Meat Boy and Furi again during these winter doldrums, and if you’ve got a chance to partake the first time around than all the better. Plus the Wii U is still getting games!

As for me I’ll be busy dropping 30 minutes a day on every game-as-service I’m currently ensconced in and wonder why it feels like I’m making so little progress even as they eat up almost all of my free time. I refuse to leave this life until I’ve run every Warframe mission a hundred times.
