New Video Game Releases for the Week of 8-6-17

I’m not gonna lie you, dear readers. It’s a slow, mundane week, but don’t let that deter you from picking up something new. While there’s not much grabbing the spotlight until later in the month, there are still a couple attractive games hitting store shelves.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes to PC and PS4 on Tuesday, promising a narrative revolving around a female protagonist tormented by a mental disorder. It comes from the same people who brought you Devil May Cry and Heavenly Sword and was developed in collaboration with neuroscientists and first-hand accounts from people who experience psychosis—definitely the most alluring, exciting thing to pay attention to this week.

LawBreakers officially drops on Monday for PC and Tuesday for PS4, so now’s the chance to check it out if you missed the beta/early access boats. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 aims to strike the nostalgic chords of your heart strings this Tuesday, as well, and includes Mega Man 7 through Mega Man 10 with a few nifty additions. Meanwhile, Flip Wars attempts to flesh out the Switch’s game library by providing an approachable multiplayer experience.

Oh, and Masquerada: Songs and Shadows comes out this week! I was pretty captured by the game at E3 2016, but check out our PAX 2017 preview for a bit of an updated look into the Venetian-inspired RPG.

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