New Video Game Releases for the Week of 1-28-18

Ports of older games to newer consoles claim most of the spotlight in terms of new game releases this week. Honestly, you’re probably still playing Monster Hunter: World (or getting blisters on your thumbs from DragonBall FighterZ), but if you find yourself staring at the wall looking for something new to play, you’ll soon have a few more options.

Night in the Woods and SteamWorld Dig get ported to the Switch this week, both of which are (arguably) better suited for the portability the Switch provides. Her Majesty’s Spiffing looks wonderfully charming, too, as it sends you on a galactic quest to establish Britain’s presence in space. Actually, there are quite a few charming games on the way, and for nearly every system. Strikers Edge brings a familiar sense of pixelated competition as you chuck spears at each other from across a gap. Tangledeep takes that same level of pixelation but applies it to a myriad of different systems typically found in an action RPG, and Wulverblade offers an oddly alluring, sidescrolling experience to brawl your way through.

Outside of the new Wolfenstein 2 DLC (The Diaries of Agent Silent Death), though, Final Fantasy hogs most of the attention as we enter February. Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT drops this Tuesday, while Thursday finally brings with it a PC port of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

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

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
