New Video Game Releases for the Week of 9-30-18

Every platform’s getting some solid-looking games to start the month off right. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey brings the series into the land of Ancient Greece alongside dual-protagonists, Mega Man 11 brings the Blue Bomber’s newest adventure to a game library near you, and Forza Horizon 4 steers into availability for PC and Xbox One. WWE 2K19 early access drops this Friday, as well, creating a decent amount of diversity among new video game options this week.

Got that itch for multiplayer camaraderie? Super Mario Party might scratch that until you bleed happiness. If you want something a little bit weirder and a lot more violent, Sega’s Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise could do the trick.

A small handful of virtual reality games drops this week; while none of them seem completely earth-shattering, the medium is certainly evolving. BARDO looks like a shooting gallery with a fantastical art direction influenced by the East; Twilight Path takes a similar Eastern influence and goes down the puzzle adventure path instead. Witching Tower VR offers a little more action, giving players an army of enemies and various weaponry to defend against them in a world of different environments.

Wormster Dash (above) is a completely hand-drawn runner game, toting a greyscale aesthetic with a popping contrast. Visage takes horror and pops in and out of surreality establish freakiness. If you missed last year’s Jettomero, don’t worry — Jettomero: Hero of the Universe comes to the Switch this week, and it looks beautiful.

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

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.
