2020 at times feels like the prologue of a post-apocalyptic game, so it seems like a perfect time for Wasteland 3 to release.

Wasteland 2 is one of those games I keep wanting to play and then I just don’t get around to it for various reasons. I did try the Switch version and I hated it, but I blame terrible visuals, poor controls, and bad performance. I need to play it on a big monitor with all the visuals turned up and a mouse. Just once I finish Ghost of Tsushima, that new Samurai Jack game, and like 10 other games, I have on my growing list of stuff I want to play or finish.

Beyond Wasteland 3 other stuff is coming out this week too. Check out the full list below:

I remember the original Wasteland - used to play it over at one of my high school age friend’s houses on his... Commie 64 I think?

Loved it, didn’t really register that there’d been a sequel and now 3. May have to take a look at it, I’m a massive fan of pre and post reboot Fallout. Hopefully this would be good too.
