New Video Game Releases for the Week of 6-4-17

Those on the lookout for couch co-op games have their pick of the litter this week. GoNNER will treat Switch owners to what looks like a fusion of Super Meat Boy and Contra (accompanied by some great sound design), while Rogue Stormers seems like it’ll scratch the more traditional Contra-itch with a rogue-like spin. Jump Stars presents itself with a jovial brutality akin to Castle Crashers, but with less slashing and more jumping, and Victor Vran: Overkill Edition should appease those looking for more of a Diablo-esque experience.

Morrowind opens its gates to all in The Elder Scrolls Online this week, breathing a new, nostalgic life into the online world. Speaking of nostalgia, PS4 owners may very well be pleased to see Wipeout: Omega Collection appear in the PlayStation Store on Tuesday. And barring any future “administrative snafus,” Perception will finally arrive on consoles this Tuesday alongside The Town of Light, a psychological horror game revolving entirely around mental health issues.

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.
