After the empty, desolate landscape that was E3 week, we're now absolutely jam packed. A lot of interesting games coming out this week alongside one barnburner — Batman: Arkham Knight.
What is it? A 3D first-person rogue-like that feels a bit like Nethack crossed with System Shock. Should you care? I dunno. I just don't know enough about it.
Batman: Arkham Knight (Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? It's Batman. The current gen one. It looks fantastic. I am excited. Should you care? Yes. Almost certainly yes. Absolutely.
Blockwick 2 (PC)
What is it? A puzzle game. I love puzzle games. Should you care? This one looks interesting. Check it out.
Curse of Mermos (PC)
What is it? It's a simple hack 'n' slash thing. Should you care? Well, it got 8.2 from IGN Middle East. In other news: IGN Middle East exists. Whoa.
Her Story (PC)
What is it? It's a weird looking (in a good way) narrative game from the developers behind Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Should you care? I'm down for this. Think I'm gonna buy it.
Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward (PC/PS4)
What is it? It's the new content for Final Fantasy XIV. Should you care? I feel like you care if you play it. That's it.
Fort Meow (PC)
What is it? This is a physics based puzzler about cats. Should you care? I wonder if this might be better played on an iPad? Good news: this is also coming out on iPad.
J-Stars Victory Vs+ (PS3/PS4/PS Vita)
What is it? A fighting game that brings together loads of Japanese manga characters. Should you care? I think this is one for fans of manga only.
Pizza Express (PC)
What is it? A game about making pizza. Not enough pizza making games IMO. Should you care? I'm sure it'll be nice, simple fun.
Portal Stories: Mel (PC)
What is it? An awesome looking Portal mod. Should you care? Normally I wouldn't put a mod in here, but this looks awesome.
Streets of Fury EX (PC)
What is it? This is like Streets of Rage with actual human sprite things. It sounds garbage, but looks really cool. Should you care? Man, I feel like I want to investigate this. Looks super cool.
Super 3-D Noah's Ark (PC)
What is it? Holy shit, what the hell is this? A 3D thing styled like a Super Nintendo game about rescuing animals on the Ark. Wow. Should you care? This looks super gimmicky.
Yoshi's Wooly World (Wii U)
What is it? Oh my lord, this is out this week? I didn't know! Should you care? If you have a Wii U, this might be your whack for a good while. I'll be playing.
What are you buying this week? Let us know in the comments!
