New Video Game Releases for the Week of 8-13-17

Well, at least Monday and Tuesday are looking halfway decent for new video games this week. The other days? Not so much.

Starcraft Remastered comes out on Monday, bringing the nostalgic RTS back into the limelight. Given the accessibility, it’ll be interesting to see how popular such an old iteration of the series holds up in streams and general coverage. If you’re not interested in RTS at all, however, Tuesday might have something worth your while.

PS4 owners will finally be able to get their hands on Undertale, so that’s essentially an automatic recommendation for those who’ve missed out on it. To go further down the nostalgic rabbit hole, Sonic Mania drops on PS4, X1, and the Switch on Tuesday, as well.

If you’re in the mood for something other than a re-release, check out Matterfall and Agents of Mayhem. The former is a PS4 exclusive from the creators of Resogun, and the latter comes from the hands of those who brought you Saints Row, but with a superhero twist.

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.
