New Video Game Releases for the Week of 2-18-18

Finally. After all these years, curiosity about Metal Gear Survive will be sated. It’s not your typical iteration of the series as it (seemingly) focuses on zombie defense and survival more than…well, you know, Metal Gears. Come Tuesday, however, we’ll all know what Konami is capable of without Kojima’s direction.

PlayStation VR owners get a good double treat with The Persistence and Apex Construct both dropping on Tuesday; the former relies on procedurally generated horror to scare the shit out of you in first-person, while the latter is a bit stealthier at its core thanks to a long-range bow and arrow gameplay mechanic. If virtual reality doesn’t interest you whatsoever, you may prefer one of the numerous 2D sidescrollers coming this week.

Deadbolt rocks the old school 8-bit pixel aesthetic with some brutal, bloody gunplay. Legendary Gary offers an absurdly endearing art direction married to a hand-drawn approach as it tells the story of a guy playing a video game (fancy that). Old Man’s Journey brings to life the story of a lonely, geriatric, bearded man and his strife with his own memories. Rad Rodgers looks delightfully devilish while recalling elements of Metal Slug, while Typoman: Revised makes a Limbo-esque appearance on the Switch—even SteamWorld Dig 2 is coming to the 3DS this week. Want to control the game with your own voice? Boo! Greedy Kid tells the tale of a kid trying to get some soda, and your voice is exactly what he needs to lay claim to the sugary treasure. Each one looks to master the two-dimensional plane in its own way, so there are quite a few options to align with your personal preferences.

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. 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.
