On the surface of things this week seems like a fairly weak one for video games, but there are so many cool games releasing on Steam this week it's not funny.
Take Inside My Radio, where you play as an LED trapped inside of Boombox, or Dark Echo, a game that attempts to visualise sound. Or Toren, where you play as a baby that eventually become a badass woman destroying monsters. Or Invisible, Inc from the creators of Mark of the Ninja. There are so many awesome games flying under the radar this week. So many.
Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. (3DS)
What is it? It's a turn-based strategy game. Finally coming to Australia. Should you care? It reviewed fairly well. Not brilliant. Solid.
Dark Echo (PC)
What is it? You are trapped in darkness and need to use sound to travel. A unique, gorgeous little puzzle game. Should you care? Apparently this is a bit of a must play.
Home is Where One Starts... Tste(PC)
What is it? A game that describes itself as being a little like Dear Esther or Gone Home. Should you care? Seems a little bit derivative.
Inside My Radio (PC)
What is it? You are a green LED trapped inside a beatbox and you must move TO THE RHYTHM. Should you care? A platform game that looks really unique and phenomenal. I'm keen.
Invisible, Inc. (PC)
What is it? From the creators of Mark of the Ninja. Damn, that's all you had to say! Should you care? Yeah you should care. This looks really cool..
LOST ORBIT (PC)
What is it? Finding it difficult to describe this. Sort of like a top down scrolling shooter thing with a heart. Just watch the trailer. It looks great. Should you care? There are a lot of gorgeous looking indie games on Steam this week. This is one of them. Check it out.
Omega Quintet (PS4)
What is it? It's a cross between an 'Idol Simulator' and an RPG. In other words, the most Japanese game ever conceived. Should you care? This is fairly niche. For 'fans of the genre' whatever that means!
Shadow of Mordor: Game of the Year Edition (Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? Shadow of Mordor gets a game of the year edition. I never really got into this for some reason. Should you care? This game is good. Really good in fact.
Spoko and Poko (PC)
What is it? It's almost like an Arkanoid clone with bells on. Looks quite cool. Should you care? Sure, why not. Worth checking out at least.
What is it? Man this game looks pretty. Play as baby, who becomes a girl, who becomes a woman with a sword beating bad guys down. Should you care? This looks really cool.
Tropico 5 (PS4)
What is it? It's that strategy game everyone loves that was only on PC until now. Should you care? Not sure how this is gonna play on PS4, but why not give it a go. It's a great series.
Virtual Pool 4 (PC)
What is it? Man, this takes me back. It's a pool game! But it also has Snooker and whatnot. Should you care? Obviously this is niche as all hell, but it does a fantastic job of doing what it's supposed to do.
Picking anything up this week? What did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.
