The Week In Games: Welcome To 2017

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Welcome To 2017

2016 came and went and now here we are: the first day of a new year, feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, ready to jump into all of 2017's biggest and most interesting releases which will be coming...eventually.


While the first week of the new year isn’t completely devoid of games, the pickings are sparse. And also demonic. The latest expansion to the world of The Binding of Isaac comes out this week which adds even more sadistic items and terrifyingly difficult modes. How much more can poor little Isaac take?

Consider it training for what may lie in the journey ahead as we embark on 2017.

RE7 in January, Horizon in February, Nier in March, and Persona 5 in April. I’m trying to stick to one game purchase per month in 2017 as my resolution.
