New Video Game Releases for the Week of 4-23-17

It’s almost May already? Damn. The first four months of 2017 have left us with a lot of catching up to do, but there are still quite a few new games on their way to retail. This week treats every platform owner with a little somethin’ somethin’—yes, even Switch owners. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe drops this Friday, and its reviews are already rotating around the higher end of the number spectrum.

Tuesday bears some heavy fruit, too, with Dragon Quest Heroes 2, Outlast 2, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 finally hitting store shelves. PS4 owners are the most victorious here as they gain access to all three of these games, but there’s bound to be something that piques your interest regardless of video game taste. Little Nightmares comes out Friday for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and is arguably the most intriguing and curious of the game releases this week. Most everything else is either a sequel to an already established IP, or an indie PC game without much buzz.

Except for The Zombiest Adventures In The Perverted Age of Enlightenment With a Pinch of Woodpunk. That one deserves some attention based on the name alone.

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