For the second week in a row there’s a great chance you will be able to hold onto your video game spending money, because there aren’t many new releases that are MUST buy if you catch my drift. Although, that doesn’t mean this week’s new video game releases are devoid of any worthy titles.

Shiftings, a new co-op puzzle platformer, is coming out for both current-gen consoles and PC, while the addictive ScreamRide is releasing for Microsoft’s two consoles, and it isn’t as bad as you may have thought. The second episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 is also releasing this week for all major platforms, so those who enjoyed the first episode can continue their journey this week. Helldivers is releasing for all three of Sony’s platforms, while White Knight is hitting the PS4, X1, and PC, and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines is releasing for the Vita. OlliOlli is releasing as a cross buy game on the Wii U and 3DS, and as a standalone game on the X1. Finally, as usual there are plenty of eclectic new PC titles coming out this week, all of which you can scope out below.

Our Recommendation

It may sound shady, but based on the time we’ve spent with ScreamRide it may well be worth a purchase, especially if you previously enjoyed the Zoo Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon franchises. It also splices in a bit of the SSX leaderboard addiction with hints of the destructive nature of an Angry Birds title. JRPG fans should consider Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines for the Vita, while RE fans should definitely plan on continuing the Revelations 2 adventure. Helldivers looks interesting, so if you’re in with Sony you should consider checking it out. Finally, for value alone picking up OlliOlli on the Wii U and 3DS is worth parting with a few dollars.
