The Week In Games: Scary Tactical Operations

It’s the beginning of the Spooky Month, and that means we’ve got a Goosebumps game and Luigi’s Mansion for the 3DS. Also Disgaea and Black Ops 4 for those of us who prefer less spooky games.


We’re right in the middle of the autumnal avalanche of video games, and we’re experiencing a mix of remasters and brand-new games that basically everyone can get excited about. Disgaea 1 is appearing in a higher definition, Mark of the Ninja is getting the remaster treatment, and Child of Light is making the leap over to the Switch.

For the truly serious games, those who will accept nothing less than back breaking and merciless assault rifle pew-pews, we’ve got a new WWE game and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which promises ops that are so shadowy, so secretive, that no one is ever going to know about them.


Personally, I am most excited about Game Dev Story coming to the Switch. I can remember long nights sitting and developing samey games over and over again when I really should have been sleeping, and despite the fact that my lack of sleep was a Problem, I’d never go back and change it.

Anyway, that’s enough rambling, here’s a list of games coming out this week and the next.

My brain says, “ooh, DS trilogy” even though I have all three already (and am currently replaying III).

This is an objectively stupid desire.

Someone should start up a religion around Dark Souls’ cosmology. I’d make the perfect mark, I’m sorry, “believer”, for that kind of thing.
