New Video Game Releases for the Week of 10-21-18

This is it. This is the week we’ve been waiting for. If you’ve been looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2, the pain of patience will cease this Friday. If you’re not at all interested, still, it’s difficult to deny the release’s impact on the industry. From scaring other games into different release windows to 100-hour work weeks, developer Rockstar Games has dominated the news through equal parts anticipation and revelation.

Despite so much of the spotlight being claimed by the Western epic, some new video games this week are fairly remarkable. Just Dance 2019 hits just about every platform you can imagine (including the Wii and Xbox 360) on Tuesday. Nickelodeon Kart Racers drops on the same day and exudes a strong nostalgic charm. Do Not Feed the Monkeys offers elements from pixelated Point and Click adventures and strategic simulation games. The voyeurism may not be for everyone, but it might house some pretty absurd moments. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales comes out this Tuesday, as well, but you may have to look for a port if none of the above interests you.

Disgaea 5 Complete comes out on Steam this week — a strategy RPG series very dear to my heart. Windjammers makes its way to the Switch, Stardew Valley releases on iPhone, and…well, that’s about it.

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

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.
