New Video Game Releases for the Week of 8-27-17

It’s safe to say that the summer video game drought will have passed after this week. Tuesday will end up putting a hefty dent in your wallet, and whatever’s left will probably go towards Thursday’s releases.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Everbody’s Golf, and Absolver all come out this Tuesday. Alongside the new arrivals, there is a swath of games migrating around to various platforms: Sonic Mania (PC), Redout (PS4/Switch/X1), Yakuza Kiwami (PS4), Resident Evil: Revelations (PS4/X1), and WindJammers (PS4/Vita)—just to name a few.

And ARK: Survival Evolved gets officially released. Whodathunk.

If none of that did it for you, Thursday has some solid offerings, as well. Life is Strange: Before the Storm gets released, ironically enough, after Tuesday’s tempest of new games, joined by a handful of equally exciting releases that seem to be flying a bit under the radar. Hearthstone‘s ‘Knights of the Frozen Throne’ expansion will likely garner the most attention, but games like Axiom Verge and The Elder Scrolls Online: Horns of the Reach aren’t carrying a noticeably big banner. But with so many high profile games to compete with, maybe it’s wiser to pick that banner up a little later.

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

Oh! One more thing. There is a noticeable amount of games revolving around cats set to come out this week. I’ve bolded and labeled them in red. I don’t know if Swery’s upcoming reveal of The Good Life is motivating cat-centric game developers to get it into gear or what, but either way—cats won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

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.
