New Video Game Releases for the Week of 10-22-17

This week is a doozy. Friday is the king in terms of new video game releases, bringing Super Mario Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to fruition. Regardless of your preferred gaming platform, one of these games alone is enough to get excited.

On the other hand, if your PC is your main gaming squeeze and you’ve been brooding over the console versions of Destiny 2, brood no more! Destiny 2 finally comes to PC this Tuesday. If, somehow, none of this piques your interest, there are a few games hiding in the shadows well worth a look.

Those enraptured by The Elder Scrolls Online get to enjoy the wonders of Clockwork City on Monday, further fleshing out the Elder Scrolls world with new challenges, Daedric conspiracies, and a pretty large update to the base game. If you’re looking for a game built for more of a younger crowd, Poi: Explorer Edition for the Switch looks like it could appease the wild imagination of children on the go (or docked, but you’ll surely be playing one of the heavy hitters coming Friday).

Wednesday brings us AER: Memories of Old, a calm-looking, impressionist’s vision of a surreal landscape teeming with wildlife. Thursday treats Switch owners with Splasher, a 2D sidescrolling action platformer with a paint obsession. If Mega Man, Super Meat Boy, and Splatoon had a conceptual child, well…there you go. Tuesday, however, comes in swinging with the best attempt to steal Friday’s thunder.

Want to beat up some motherfuckers on motorcycles? Look to Road Rage on PC. Want to dance your heart out with some friends (or by yourself which is totally not lame)? Just Dance 2018 is sure to release on SOME console you own. Want to crawl through some dungeons as a ragtag team of anime ladies donning skimpy swimsuits and a softcore fetish? Neither do I, but something about Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon reminds me of .hack// and that’s just nostalgic enough to be somewhat convincing.

And there’s a game coming to Steam this week: Pill Cosbi. I’ll just let that, and this, sit here for a bit.

If you own a PS4, you may want to keep a keen eye on Hidden Agenda. It’s made by the Until Dawn crew and has the potential for an incredibly interesting series of multiplayer interactions with the system’s PlayLink integration.

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