New Video Game Releases for the Week of 10-29-17

If your eyes are still glued to the screen after this weekend, I don’t blame you. Super Mario Odyssey, Wolfenstein 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Origins launching this past Friday (and Stranger Things 2) gave us all a lot to chew on, and thank the gods for that. This week really has…nothing. Well, except Call of Duty: WWII this Friday. That’s pretty big, I suppose. I’ve never been too excited about any of the CoD games, but this iteration has me more intrigued than the rest.

If a twitchy FPS set in World War 2 doesn’t do it for ya, there’s always Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back! I never thought I’d say the day where Bubsy actually returned to relevancy, so it may be picking up just based on the pure anomaly of its existence.

Otherwise, there’s a few ports of old(er) games coming to various consoles this week. Switch owners land Perception, a horror game focused on the sense of sound instead of sight, and Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers if you’re into that sort of thing.

Looking for more of an anime-vibe? PS4 owners can get their hands on Ys Origin, an action RPG from 2006 with a bit of a cult following, and .hack//G.U. Last Recode, which brings the three volumes of the second series back to life. I missed out on these back in the PS2 days, but I was obsessed with the first series. Well, there’s only one way to find out if it aged well, and now that discovery’s been made all the more convenient.

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