New Video Game Releases for the Week of 1-14-18

The Switch train is rolling straight into 2018 without a hint of slowing down. The console that launched with ten games last March (not even a full year ago) now has over 400 games in its library, and this year is already continuing the trend.

InnerSpace, Nightmare Boy, Gunhouse, and Darkest Dungeon are all coming to the Switch this week, offering a decent variety of game genres for you, prospective buyer. InnerSpace (also coming to PS4) is an explorative venture into the skies and oceans of a world with inverted gravity, which, alone, is enough to give it a proper double take. Nightmare Boy has some weirdly interesting art direction that backs up its 2D sidescrolling action/adventure gameplay, Gunhouse proposes a marriage of tower defense and puzzle-solving, and Darkest Dungeon…well, we all know about Darkest Dungeon, yeah?

Towering over all of the above, however, is Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition coming to PC and PS4This one comes with just about everything you need to get into Street Fighter V; however, there’s quite a bit of contention for the fighting game crown these days. Tekken 7 seems well received, Dragon Ball FighterZ is just around the corner, and Soul Calibur VI was recently announced….

It’s gonna get brutal. Which side of the fighting game fence are you on? Any? To the comments below!

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.
