Do you have children? Do you like money? If you answer yes to both of these questions you may want to blindfold your kidlets and take your family to an abandoned mineshaft for the next week or so. Skylanders is out this week and it will have no mercy. Your hard-earned dollars are at risk good people. Don't say you weren't warned.
Bad Hotel (PC)
What is it? A weird little tower-defense game that integrates music and has Wu-Tang clan references. SOUNDS LIKE MY DREAM GAME. Should You Care? I actually legitimately love games that integrate music into mechanics. Also I love the Wu-Tang Clan. I'm seriously thinking of checking this out.
What is it? An indie first person adventure game set in Greece. This was a greenlit game and it looks quite weird and interesting. Should You Care? I like adventure games, but this is the first I'm hearing of this game which makes me wonder why?
Goodbye Deponia (PC)
What is it? It's an adventure game! We're getting a lot of these recently. This is a good thing. Should You Care? This is a good egge by all accounts. A very good egg. Like a really nicely poached egg with hollandaise sauce.
Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed (DS/3DS)
What is it? I don't know a lot about this series. This is a 2D scroller and it's aimed at a younger audience. Should You Care? I think you can probably skip this one.
Pool Nation (PC)
What is it? This is a pool game. Like the sport of pool. No wait! Guys, come back! Should You Care? I used to love snooker games when I was younger, I actually think I would love to play a game about pool!
Skylanders Swap Force (360/PS3/Wii)
What is it? It's Skylanders. Adults with children, prepare for destitution. Should You Care? It's Skylanders. It's good. It's good at siphoning dollar bills directly from your wallet into the tills of registers across the country.
Sonic: Lost World (Wii U/3DS)
What is it? It's the Sonic game that's exclusive to Nintendo. Should You Care? This runs at 1080p/60 frames per second on the Wii U. This is almost enough for me to just buy it and play it regardless of how good or bad it is.
The Stanley Parable (PC)
What is it? This game just looks soooo indie it's beyond belief. It's a first person exploration game. Should You Care? I'm intrigued, mostly by the description on the steam page that says "You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end." WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?
Talisman Digital Edition (PC)
What is it? Video game version of the board game. Should You Care? I always think that, in these cases, it's best to just play the board game.
Tetrobot and Co. (PC)
What is it? A super pure puzzler that involves using blocks and the like. Should You Care? I think this looks pretty swell, but I really love unique puzzlers. Your mileage may vary.
