It’s going to be another expensive week if you’re in the market for new video games, because there are definitely more than a few options to check out. The major new releases are Alien: Isolation (multi-platform), Project Spark (PC/X1), Driveclub (PS4), and NBA 2K15 (multi-platform).

There are also quite a few re-releases of games that have been re-packaged and branded as a GOTY edition, definitive edition, or a special console release edition. These include Minecraft for PS4, Forza 5 GOTY (X1), Ryse: Son of Rome Legendary Edition (X1), FFXIII for PC, Ryse: Son of Rome for PC, Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition (multi-platform), and Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition (X1).

Fear not, there are other new releases this week too that may not have been on your radar. Skylanders Trap Team drops today for a plethora of platforms. Crow is releasing for PCs on Monday, and Styx: Master of Shadows, Costume Quest 2 are both releasing Tuesday for PCs. Dance Central Spotlight is also coming out for the Xbox One on Tuesday.

Our Recommendation

If you’re not still playing Destiny or Shadow of Mordor, then you should definitely check out Alien: Isolation, which is already getting positive reviews. If you’re more into crafting then Project Spark will tickle your fancy. If sports games are your thing, then you can’t go wrong with the latest NBA 2K title. Those looking to catch up on games they may have missed should check out Sleeping Dogs DE, and even though it’s polarizing, Ryse is still one of the best looking next-gen console games this year, so it may be worth a purchase if you haven’t owned it before.
