Last week’s New Video Game Releases post was lost to the winds of change as I moved between houses, but now that my computer turned on again without exploding I can finally get back to the Sunday ritual of drooling over all the video games I cannot afford.

I cannot take my eyes off of Octopath Traveler. While the main game drops this Friday, nothing’s stopping you from grabbing your Switch and downloading the three-hour demo to get a little headstart. In the interest of enjoyable (hopefully) surprises, I’ve so far stayed away from the demo.

I forsee me caving before Friday.

If you’re not into the isometric pixelation Octopath offers, you may find a little trouble mining for excitable games this week. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! intrigues me due to its simple, titular premise. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 comes to Xbox One, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker hits 3DS and Switch, and the limited edition of Owlboy for PS4 drops this week. Ports can only feel so new, but there aren’t many more games to get excited about this week. Rifter captures a certain fast pace that looks alluring. Insane Robots could provide some interesting strategic developments. The Spectrum Retreat uses memory and problem-solving skills in order to traverse a maze of color-coded puzzles.

Outside of that? Not much. Take a gander for yourself down below, and be sure to comment if I missed anything that deserves a mention this week. 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.
