This Week In Games: Broken Age Is Coming Out! (For Some Of You)

Ladies and gentlemen. We're in the dead zone. Games... few and far between. Emptiness all around. A video game vacuum. A dead space... a dead zone. Dead. Dead. They're all dead captain! AIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeee...

(Actually there are some games. Some.)

Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD (PC)

What is it? Oh, I remember this wee game. It is actually a pretty fully fledged Assassin's Creed. Now polished up a little and released on PC. Should you care? Originally a Vita game, so not quite a fully fledged adventure ala Assassin's Creed IV. Which is, coincidentally, the game you really should be playing right now.


Broken Age Act One (PC)

What is it? Well well well. This is out this week. If you were a backer. I am not a backer. Tears. Should You Care? I didn't back it, but I am super excited to play it. You should be too. Tim Schafer's last adventure game was Grim Fandango. Yeah.


Estranged: Act 1 (PC)

What is it? It's a free to play adventure game! It's also a Half-Life 2 mod. Should you care? Well, it's free. So yeah, you should check it out. Find out more about the game here.


Mario Party: Island Tour (3DS)

What is it? It's a Mario party baby. And there ain't no party like a Mario Party. If you're into mini games and stuff. Should you care? Mario Party has never been my thing. But don't let me stop you. Party on friends.


Void Destroyer (PC)

What is it? Another one of them there greenlight games. It's space combat simulator RTS thing. Should you care? I just feel like I don't know enough about this game at all to make some sort of judgement on its value.

    Ah Mario Party, its never been fun on hand helds. you need the full console with 4 player experience to truly enjoy it.

      It's also not the same without a 90% deadzone on the joystick.....

      "Mario Party, it's never been fun"

      Fixed that for you.

    This is like ordering something off ebay and then forgetting about it, only to have it arrive on your doorstep when you least expect it.

      Really? The Two Player Production videos have kept me excited for it along the way.

      (If you haven't seen them yet & are a backer, you're missing out)

        yeah... I'll admit I've been slack as about the updates. I should be checking it but I generally just delete the email. I'm an idiot.

    Banner Saga comes out tomorrow!

    Are we gonna get broken age on Wed (ie 14th in the US)? So pumped!

    What was the cave then? wasn't that kickstartered by doublefine?

      The Cave was a Double Fine game, but headed by Ron Gilbert. No Kickstarter involved with that game. There is another game called Massive Chalice, which was definitely funded by Kickstarter.

      Can't wait for Broken Age! It may just be a Beta release this week, but I'm sure it's polished enough to be very playable.
