Bloodborne hit stores last week and now Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is being released. Lord have mercy. There's only so much mental anguish I can take.
What are you picking up this week?
A Pixel Story (PC)
What is is? A puzzle-platformer with an 8-bit aesthetic. Wait... where are you going? Should you care? Apparently this a really special game. Sort of a must play.
What is is? A top down RPG looking thing. Sort of like Gauntlet with stats. Should you care? I like the look of it. Seems like a lot of fun. Hardly essential, but perhaps a nice little diversion.
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4)
What is is? Dark Souls fans may all be a little big distracted with Bloodborne right now, but Scholars of the First Sin is here! Should you care? I think so. I skipped the DLC for Dark Souls II so I think I'll probably play through this, since the DLC is contained in it.
What is is? It's a platformer without a jump button. Yep. This is minimalist. Should you care? I love the way this looks. People will compare it to Thomas Was Alone.
What is is? It's a 3D platformer, remember those? Should you care? This looks actually quite good. Was surprised to see this on Steam.
What is is? A local 4-player battle game that plays with gravity. Should you care? Early buzz for this game is strong.
What is is? It's a motorcycle simulator. Aren't too many of those any more. Should you care? In its own way it's sort of unique, and certainly valuable to gamers who love motorcycles. Fills a good niche.
What is is? A horror game in which you relive a spooky night of happenings through security cameras. Should you care? I love the concept. Looks great.
The Spatials (PC)
What is is? A game about building a Space Station. Sort of like Theme Park. Should you care? I think this looks interesting. Certainly a very unique concept.
Xenoblade Chronicles (3DS)
What is is? It's the New 3DS game in that series that all JRPG fans lose their minds over. Should you care? Might be worth checking this one out. The last game in the Xenoblade series was pretty amazing by all accounts.
