New Video Game Releases for the Week of 1-7-18

2018 is not kicking down any doors in its arrival. It’s a slow start to the week (and year), but there are a few games you may want to keep an eye on as we near the more excitable January releases of Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Monday and Tuesday are pretty barren, but Wednesday does bring Xbox One owners the ability to play Albert & Otto: The Adventure Begins. If you’re familiar with Limbo or Inside, you’ll feel right at home here. It’s a little too close for comfort in my eyes, but it looks like it has an identity of its own.

Switch owners get a fair amount of new games added to their potential game libraries; however, not all of them are worth the excavation. With that said, Super Meat Boy and Furi both get ported to the Switch this Thursday, so ready those wallets. Dying: Reborn gives PC gamers another opportunity to shit their pants in horror, but time will reveal the game’s ability to do just that. Sea Dogs, an epic pirate-themed RPG from 2000, finds its way onto Steam this Friday, but the game’s archaic systems and visuals may be enough to prevent any interest from building. It’s a slow week, though, so there may be a lot of enjoyment here with enough nostalgia.

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

Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
