The Week In Games: Rock The Dragon!

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Rock The Dragon!

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming out this week. I only know two things about this game: It comes out soon and it is Dragon Ball Z game. I’ve played some great Dragon Ball Z games and some really, really bad games. I hope this one is good!

This might be one of the best TV show intro songs ever created. It is up there with the X-Men animated show theme and the Buffy theme. As a kid, this intro would get me so pumped to watch people fight and yell and shoot energy balls. Listening to it now, I want to find some DBZ episodes and watch them and then jump off my bed and do a karate kick.


If you are looking for a new battle royale game, Project Darwin comes out this week. If you are a fan of the Atelier franchise, I have some great news for you. Three games are coming out this week across most platforms. Also, Lightmatter is coming out this week. It looks like Portal, but instead of deadly turrets and portals, you have deadly shadows and portable lights.

Beyond that stuff, other games are coming out too. The full list is below:
