This week’s new video game releases may or may not tickle your fancy. Most of the new releases are of the re-release, or collection variety, but there are a few brand new games. These include Bound by Flame (PC/PS3/PS3/Xbox 360, Full Bore (PC), Sweezy Gunner (PC), Sportsfriends (PS3/PS4), Spark Rising (PC), Swipecart (PC), Raven’s Cry (PC/PS3/Xbox 360), Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure (PC), and You Have to Win the Game (PC).

The re-releases and collections include the Borderlands 2 Vita bundle, the God of War Collection for Vita, MLB 14: The Show for PS4, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for the Xbox One, Stick it to the Man! for PS4, and Peggle 2 for the Xbox 360. These aren’t technically new, but most of them are releasing for new platforms, so if you’ve been wanting to get them for a system you own, this is the week to do so.


Our Recommendation

This week is tough since most of the releases are indie titles, re-releases, or collections, so you may just want to hold off on picking up a new game unless you’ve been wanting to play one of the re-releases or collections for a system you own. Peggle 2 and MLB 14: The Show are viable candidates for purchase on new systems. Grabbing the Vita bundle with Borderlands 2 would be a great move if you don’t already own Sony’s latest portable gaming unit. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has its issues, but for some reason it’s still quite fun, so if you held out for the Xbox One edition you should consider risking an investment for a bit of glitchy fun. If you want to go for a new game you should look into Full Bore, or Bound by Flame, which has shown potential as a solid action-RPG.
