New Video Game Releases for the Week of 11-19-17

In what appears to be the slowest week in video game releases this year, a few games are still worth a gander.

Battle Chef Brigade drops for PC and Switch this Monday, and everything about it brings a tear to my eye. Hand-drawn illustrations mesh with smooth animations and look incredibly gratifying, and that’s just during the sidescrolling, monster-killing, ingredient-gathering sections. As a chef, you’ll take these collected components and turn them into dishes to compete in the world’s most intense culinary tournament.

It reminds me of Toriko, just without all the guts. Maybe there’s plenty of guts in Battle Chef Brigade—I don’t know, but we’ll find out come Monday.

Not interested in cooking or killing tasty creatures? You’ll probably find it difficult to get too excited about anything coming out this week. PSVR owners get to jump into Until Dawn‘s sanitorium 60 years before the events of the original game with The Inpatient coming out on Tuesday. Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV drops on the same day, so if you’ve been really itching to dominate a mythical monster fish by digitally pulling one ashore, great news!

If you still haven’t touched Breath of the Wild, this Thursday sees to the release of the Explorer’s Edition and comes with a little guide and a nifty map of Hyrule. Stick It to The Man! gets ported to the Switch on the same day, too. I’ve only dabbled for an hour or two with the PS4 version, but it’s a crafty, well-written gem that got quite a few chuckles out of me.

Maybe I’m missing something! If you see something down below that you’re super excited for and I totally missed it, head to the comments! 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.

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