Hey August, July was rubbish. You better step things up or I'm going to be extremely angry.
Amazing World (PC)
What is it? A goofy looking MMO that looks perfect for younger gamers. Should you care? This has been getting some gangbusters reviews...
Another Perspective (PC)
What is it? Hey, another 2D puzzle platformer. WHOOP-DI-DOO. Should you care? Apparently this one isn't terrible. Has some interesting puzzles and a not-that-bad-really aesthetic.
Back to Bed (PC)
What is it? A puzzle thing where you control a sub-conscious guardian thing trying to send his sleepwalking human master back to bed. A 3D puzzle game of sorts. Should you care? I love the high concept. Dunno if it delivers or not.
Cloud Chamber (PC)
What is it? Apparently it's a "massively multiplayer story game". I'm having difficult parsing precisely what that means. Should you care? But there's apparently a fair amount of buzz surrounding this game. At the very least it sounds pretty innovative.
Frontline : Road to Moscow (PC)
What is it? A basic looking RTS set during World War II. Should you care? There are so many great RTS games on PC. This isn't one of them.
Goat Simulator (PC)
What is it? Hey, this game just got a retail release! Should you care? Man, you probably own this already and, if you don't, do you really need to get a physical copy? Just get it on Steam.
Jet Gunner (PC)
What is it? "Jet Gunner is a 2D platform action indie game that's full of Nestalgia." Should you care? I don't know how much more I can take of this 2D retro-styled platformer stuff. I am a time bomb.
Mind: Path to Thalamus (PC)
What is it? A first person puzzler set in natural environments. Should you care? It looks visually spectacular. I'd at least investigate this.
Orbital Gear (PC)
What is it? A fast-paced 2D shooter/platformer with Mario Galaxy style planet hopping. Should you care? Looks frantic and super rewarding. I love the look of this actually.
Pe-2: Dive Bomber (PC)
What is it? It's a game that does the side-scroller R-Type thing with some unique new mechanical additions. Sort of like Luftrausers I guess. Should you care? Apparently it's not that bad! Looks interesting,
Rex Rocket (PC)
What is it? "Inspired by the retro glory days of 8-bit games, Rex Rocket is a traditional 2D platformer..." Should you care? [Slowly brings gun to head]
Sacred 3 First Edition (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? A hack and slash thing. Not that great. Should you care? I would take my money elsewhere. The world is a magical place of opportunity. Play better video games.
Ultra Street Fighter IV (360/PS3)
What is it? It's Street Fighter IV. You know the drill. It's awesome. Should you care? Fans of the series will be getting this. Casual players might be happy with the earlier edition they own.
Victory At Sea (PC)
What is it? An RTS set in the ocean with big ol' boats shooting the crap out of one another. Should you care? I know nothing about this, and have zero interest in it. I'd feel bad casting judgement on it, but I think it looks pretty guff. Your mileage may vary.
Picking anything up this week? Let us know in the comments below.
