Bloody hell Steam! Give us a break! Seems like every week there are an absolute horde of games being released on PC through Steam. It's absolutely out of control.
I guess it's a good thing but I genuinely cannot keep up with this output! It's insane. Still, a couple of big releases this week: Contrast on PC, XCOM: Enemy Within and a handful of other releases. Seems like everyone is in a bit of a holding pattern for the Xbox One and PS4 launches.
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! (360/PS3)
What is it? That show everyone loves has another video game. Should you care? Seems like a kind of fan service thing. I'm sure it'll be a functional game and fans of the show won't be disappointed. Not my thing.
Angry Birds Star Wars (360)
What is it? Christ almighty. Should you care? This is like $39.95. For a game you can get free elsewhere. How are they justifying this? Are people actually buying this?
Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition (PC)
What is it? Oh, I'm sure a lot of people have been waiting for this. Baldur's Gate II... enhanced! Should you care? You may have already played the crap out of this. You may want to do it all over again. And why not?
Blood Knights (PC)
What is it? A hack and slay game with RPG elements. Should you care? Seems a bit generic to me. Surely there are better alternatives out there?
Call of Duty: Ghosts Limited Edition (PS4)
What is it? What? This is out before the console is? I guess so... it's listed at retail. Should you care? I have to say, I wouldn't bother. I think it's time to demand something a bit more from this series.
Castlevania: The Lords of Shadow Collection (PS3)
What is it? Packages the Lords of Shadow game with the console remake of the 3DS title and a bunch of DLC. Should you care? Plenty of folk loved this. I didn't. But I tend to complain and get annoyed by things other people love.
What is it? This is the PC version of the PS4 launch game I'm actually most excited about! Should you care? Look super smart, super gorgeous and original. Looking forward to this, but might wait for the PS4 version.
Deadfall Adventures (PC)
What is it? An 'action driven first person shooter'. Should you care? Don't know a helluva lot about this one. Seems a bit generic and naff. Maybe head here and make your own mind up.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (3DS/360/PS3/Wii U/PS Vita/PC)
What is it? It's the new LEGO game! It's cool. Should you care? A bit of a step up from regular LEGO fare. I enjoyed what I played of it.
PixelJunk Shooter (PC)
What is it? I love that the PixelJunk series is making it across to PC. Fantastic set of games. Should you care? One of my favorite PixelJunk games. Just smooth, slick art style with simple tactile mechanics. Love it.
XCOM: Enemy Within (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? Well the last one was pretty good, wasn't it! Should you care? Yes. Definitely yes.
X Rebirth (PC)
What is it? I hate to admit this but I'm not all that familiar with the 'X' series. A super complex Space Trading and combat game in the vein of Elite. Should you care? Looks kinda interesting actually.
