Today marks the start of August’s second week, bringing with it a wide variety of new video game releases to sink your teeth into. While the majority of 2014’s big name games have yet to hit store shelves, this week has a nice offering of titles that gamers will be able to dedicate some hours with. Role-playing game fans will be excited to see that this week brings with it the launch of Risen 3: Titan Lords, while Sony console owners can get excited about Hohokum being released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. Outside of these two games, a number of other releases are of note.

Our Recommendation: 

Risen 3: Titan Lords looks to be the most promising game set to release this week. Fans of the franchise may remember the original Risen title as one of the genre’s biggest sleeper hits, while Risen 2: Dark Waters was something of a gigantic flop. Luckily, everything that has been seen of Risen 3 indicates that developer Piranha Bytes has focused on creating an RPG experience that players won’t soon forget. Featuring some impressive visuals and a storyline that is sure to grab gamers’ attention, Risen 3: Titan Lords is our pick this week to scratch that RPG itch.
