While Sony’s been busy keeping up with all the God of War praise, Nintendo continues to slink around the “new games” spectrum with quite the promising port: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. If you’ve been missing DK (and co.) and didn’t get to spend time with him (them) during the Wii U days, you can remedy all that this Friday on the Switch. Everything leading up to Friday, however, seems mostly lackluster.

Monday brings some new characters to The King of Fighters XIV, namely Heidhern, Oswald, and Najd. If you’re not already into that, maybe The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone might perk your ears. Xbox One owners get yet another edition of Minecraft (Super Plus Pack), and…well, that’s honestly about it. At least the slow pace of new, highly anticipated games gives the indies some time in the spotlight.

Just, Bearly looks like an incredibly personal tale of awkwardness complete with the personification of a bear. The Office Quest boasts a borderline sepia-toned art style to paint a point-and-click adventure — it looks like it might could provide a right laugh or two.

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.
