New Video Game Releases for the Week of 7-23-17

Pyre and Fortnite are both coming out this Tuesday, so say goodbye to any free time you thought you had. The former is Supergiant Games’ third release after Bastion and Transistor—even if you’re not a fan, the new soundtrack coming with Pyre should warrant attention. While Pyre should satisfy cravings for a single player story, Epic Games’ Fortnite looks to provide an in-depth dive into multiplayer. Collect materials around the world, save what survivors you can, build a base with your friends, then defend the living hell out of it.

If neither piques your interest, there are quite a few low(er)-key games to look into. Fable Fortune is a new digital card game that brings the nostalgia of the Fable series to 2017. Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star carries with it the spirit of Dynasty Warriors with an anime twist, and Super Cloudbuilt is a third person shooter/platformer that prioritizes speed as a gameplay element and boasts some beautiful, geometric art to boot. Mafia 3 fans have the Sign of the Times DLC too look forward to, as well, and this is all happening alongside Pyre and Fortnite on Tuesday.

Looking for something a little more lighthearted? Hey! Pikmin comes out this Friday for the 3DS. If you’re willing to go back to the days of black and white, however, Tragedy of Prince Rupert has some wicked art direction going for it.

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

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