After the barnstorming release of Destiny, this week feels like a bit of a come-down. It's hardly as dead as July and August, but there is a dearth of BIG AAA SUPER DUPER GAMES. The biggest releases this week? Most likely Disney Infinity 2.0 and Hyrule Warriors. Neither float my boat, but your mileage may vary.
Boson X (PC)
What is it? An endless grid runner thing. Should you care? Originally on mobiles and it shows. Probably a bit flimsy and basic for PC.
Disney Infinity 2.0 (Xbox 360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4/Wii U/PS Vita)
What is it? It's the Disney thing that's like Skylanders and has a license to print money. Should you care? I know a fair few adults who are obsessed with this. Not my thing.
Doorways: The Underworld (PC)
What is it? A first person horror game. Should you care? This looks a little half-baked to me.
Great Permutator (PC)
What is it? Remember Pipemania? It's sort of like that except with boxes. Should you care? This looks quite fun. I'm a sucker for these kind of puzzle games.
Hero of Many (PC)
What is it? An ex-mobile game where you lead a swarm of water being through increasingly difficult levels. Should you care? Whoa... how did I miss this on mobile? This game looks incredible. I need to play this.
Hyrule Warriors (Wii U)
What is it? Combines Zelda with Dynasty Warriors. What could go wrong? Should you care? Despite being a massive Zelda fan, I just can't muster up enthusiasm for this.
Pro Rugby Manager 2015 (PC)
What is it? Wait, they make those Football Manager style sims for Rugby? Whoa... Should you care? Man, I used to love Championship Manager as a teenager. I'm sure there are people out there in Australia who would love this.
Reprisal Universe (PC)
What is it? A homage to Populous with the aesthetics of Minecraft. Should you care? This looks quite unique. And there aren't enough 'God' games out there for my liking. Investigate!
What is it? A strategic space fleet command game. Should you care? I like the minimalism of it. I think this will appeal to a specific niche.
The Waste Land (PC)
What is it? A metroidvania inspired by T.S. Eliot's classic modernist poem. How can this not be the best game ever made? Should you care? Actually, it looks a little average. That's a shame. Has a helluva one line pitch.
