New Video Game Releases for the Week of 7-9-17

It may not be the most exciting week for new video games, but it sure is a notable one. Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age brings a remastered iteration of the original to the PlayStation 4 with updates and features previously unavailable to North America. Fable Fortune, a new collectible card game set in the Fable universe, targets the same nostalgic sensibilities, but it’s comparatively underwhelming alongside FFX12‘s reintroduction. Had it been a new Fable proper, however, nothing would pry my eyes away. Alas, a man can dream.

Season 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode starts up this Tuesday, so followers of Telltale’s interpretation of the Minecraft world should look into that one. Otherwise, Thursday brings Switch owners Death Squared, a lovely-looking, co-op puzzle game for up to four people. If you’re looking for an action-packed challenge that requires fast reflexes more than strategic puzzle solving, consider picking up The End is Nigh (from the creators of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac) on PC this Wednesday; PS4 and Xbox One owners should look to Rogue Stormers this Friday to scratch the same itch.

Need something a little quirkier? Black The Fall and Lili: Child of Geos both look pretty unique and worthwhile—even if it’s just to gain clarity about how either game plays—but that’s as far as my expectations are willing to reach.

Oh, and Game Grumps apparently developed a game for PC; it’s called Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator and it’ll be out this Thursday. So…there’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.

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.
