This Week In Games: Play This Game About A Potatoman

BREAKING: this week there is a game being released about a Potatoman.

Bombing Bastards (PC)

What is it? It's like Bomberman! But it's not Bomberman! Should you care? This has reviewed extremely well. This looks like a lot of fun.

Club Manager 2015 (PC)

What is it? We actually have two 'LET'S MANAGE SPORTS' games this week. This is the first one. Should you care? These are super niche, but even I know that Football Manager is the one to get, not this one.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX (PS3)

What is it? Wait, I thought this came out already. Meh, it's that HD remix thing. You know what I'm talking about. Should you care? I don't think so, but I'm not a big fan of this series.

iO (PC)

What is it? It's a game that combines Unirally with Super Monkey Ball. Yep, how cool does that sound. Should you care? Man, I'm totally going to buy this.

Lumino City (PC)

What is it? Sequel to Lume, an award-winning puzzler. Should you care? This looks like a gorgeous little game.

Neocolonialism (PC)

What is it? Man, this is basically a game that simulates imperialism. This is interesting. You play as a banker and manipulate the economy for your own ill-gotten gain. Should you care? This is an excellent idea. Hope the execution matches the concept.

Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth (3DS)

What is it? I always try and get a 3DS game to play over Christmas because I go on a trip with family with zero consoles. Last year my game was A Link Between Worlds, this year I think I'll play this. Should you care? Yes, I think you should care.

Potatoman Seeks the Troof (PC)

What is it? This game is fairly insane. A 2D platformer with rudimentary Manic Miner style visuals. But it's about a Potatoman. Should you care? Just head to the Steam page and check it out.


What is it? An adventure game about space and stuff. Seems like it's about surviving on the moon. Should you care? This looks like a really beautiful video game.

Rugby Union Team Manager 2015 (PC)

What is it? One of those Football Manager type games, except for Rugby Union. Should you care? Man, these are niche. I know nothing about this, and I'll never play it. Ever.

The Crew (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4/PC)

What is it? It's a racing MMO game thing with all those fancy online things. Should you care? I'd wait for reviews. I'm hearing rumblings about a lot of micro-transaction style shenanigans.


What is it? A first person explorer. A virtual vacation. Should you care? Looks beautiful. For fans of games like Proteus.

Buying anything this week? Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below.


    "Should you care? I don’t think so, but I’m not a big fan of this series."

    Such insightful words. Thanks.

    the crew most definitely has micro transations, they were very evident in the betas but just ignore it?

    getting it because i think its been a while since we've had a racing game with a completely dumb arse story and fast and the furious style customisation...

    The crew interests me, but i have too much on my plate console wise with DAI, CODAW, ACU, TEW, and FC4.
    Id be more interested in KH2.5 if it was for vita, don't know why.
    Will likely get persona for commute gaming...

    KH2.5 for PS3 seems a little outdated. My PS3 has already been packed away, and as much as I love the KH series, reconnecting it for one game seems like a waste of time...If it were for PS4 on the other hand...

      Though apparently this was for the Japanese crowd who still use their PS3s

    I thought The Crew wasnt coming out for PS3?

    BTW - tried playing the card version of Season 2 of The Walking Dead on Vita TV - not compatible! Yet the individual episodes are... what gives...??

      vita tv compatibility seems to be a bit of a mess, games that could very easily be compatible aren't, but i'm hopeful devs will get it fixed up

    Ok you have my attention.

    Wait how do you find this game? My google-fu is weak, all I can seem to get is a bunch of Hitman results.

      Aha! This looks cool.

      Go to Steam, search for io..

        Huh. Guess I completely have no mental association between PC gaming and Steam at all :P

    A new quality Bomberman Clone on Steam?! Between this, Toybox Turbos, Gauntlet and Hammerwatch, Spelunky and Battleblock Theatre there is getting to be a really nice resurgence of single screen party multiplayer games for my Steam Big Picture setup! :D

    ...Game of Thrones comes out today btw

    Potatoman Seeks the Troof finally came out, huh? I assumed it had been released six months ago. This game is is bonkers.
