The Week In Games: These Are Definitely Some Video Games Right Here

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: These Are Definitely Some Video Games Right Here

You know how most release weeks have one central peg, some highly-anticipated title that a person creating a list can latch onto? Yeah, about that.


This week we’ve got a bunch of smaller titles. Many of them are highly-anticipated, but it’s a very focused sort of anticipation. I mean, more Hitman is good, but episodic titles make it awkward. There’s Severed for the Vita, pictured above, which looks amazing but is for a system that’s not exactly in every household across the country. I’m always up for more Zen Pinball tables, but I realize they’re an acquired taste.

Tell you what, if there’s a game you’re eager to play in the list below, go ahead and make your own opening paragraph. It’s fun!

My wife asked me what she could get me for our anniversary next month (16 years!) and I’m tempted to ask her to get me a vita, mostly because I’m sick of killing my phones battery when I’m out and about with her and she wants to try on a bunch of stuff.

I’m a big rpg/jrpg, music and quirky game fan, will play anything except FPS. What do you think? Is a vita right for me?

I ask since the article talked about not every household having a vita, so I thought I’d ask her how people felt about it.
