Well, I hope you like JRPGs, because a metric ton of them are being released this week. What else? A lot of really interesting Steam releases. Honestly! Mushroom 11 might be the one to check out. Or Human Resource Machine.
Oh, and I almost forgot: Rock Band 4 and Minecraft: Story Mode are both out this week.
Animal Gods (PC)
What is it? A top-down action/adventure thing that looks new and retro at THE SAME TIME. Should you care? This looks cool. I'm impressed by the art. Well worth checking out.
What is it? An interesting game about cooperation and betrayal. Super simple. Seems like it has some interesting ideas. Should you care? I don't know, something about this just appeals to me. It's basic but seems like a lot of fun.
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance (PS4)
What is it? It's the latest in the Disgaea series. Has been out in Japan for a while. Finally coming to the west. Should you care? Apparently it's really quite good!
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden! (3DS)
What is it? It's a Dragon Ball Z game. You know the drill. Should you care? If you like Dragon Ball Z, maybe. Otherwise? No.
Dragon Quest Heroes (PS4)
What is it? It's a Dragon Quest game, but very different from most Dragon Quest games. Should you care? It's surprisingly good from what I can figure. Has reviewed very well.
What is it? It's the new game from the creators of World of Goo and Little Inferno. That's good enough for me. Should you care? This looks really interesting and fun. Very keen.
What is it? Oh, it's the Telltale Minecraft game! Should you care? Yeah this looks good. This could be the one game you have to check out this week.
Mushroom 11 (PC)
What is it? This is super weird. But it looks super great. It's a messed up puzzle game about managing a lump of evolving goo. Should you care? Seriously, check this out. This looks special.
Nubs' Adventure (PC)
What is it? Its retro-styled 2D platformer... WAIT, STOP. WHERE ARE YOU GOING? Should you care? This looks nice enough. Has Metroidvania elements. Looks polished at least.
What is it? I feel like we just recently wrote about a game like this, about setting up colonies on Mars? Anyway, here's another one. This looks polished as hell. Should you care? If you like these sort of management games and you like sci-fi, check it out.
Rock Band 4 (Xbox One/PS4)
What is it? It's Rock Band 4, a week late. Still pretty good. Should you care? Man, I dunno. Yes. Rock Band is back. But yeah, I have problems. I don't know if this is gonna work out for most us who have back catalogues to download.
Tales of Zestiria (PS3/PS Vita)
What is it? Another JRPG from the Tales series. Should you care? It's not bad. But you have a fair amount of choices this week if you like JRPGs.
