Today's big release is Far Cry Primal, obviously. But this is also a week about surprise indie releases that look... kinda amazing.
Also — SUPERHOT is out this week on PC. I'm extremely, extremely excited about that video game.
Bravely Second - End Layer (3DS)
What is it? It's a JRPG. Of course. Set in the Bravely Default universe. Should you care? It reviewed strongly in Japan. I know very little about it to be honest...
What is it? This looks like some sort of update to that Bridge Constructor that's super popular. Should you care? If you were into the previous game, go nuts!
Far Cry Primal (Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? Hey it's kinda weird to get a Far Cry game so early in the year — but here it is! Should you care? I'm excited for this one. Mainly because of the setting. Love the prehistoric high concept. Extremely excited to give it a bash.
Life in Bunker (PC)
What is it? It's a bunker building simulator ala Fallout Shelter. Should you care? Looks pretty interesting. Not terrible at all.
What is it? Oh wow, it's that Mashed-style racer being made in Melbourne by a team of ex-Visceral developers. It had a name change... Should you care? Absolutely. This game looks great. Super polished, great fun. I played this at PAX last year and had a blast.
One Upon Light (PC)
What is it? Gorgeous looking game about hiding in the shadows and staying away from the light. Should you care? This might be the surprise package of this week. Check it out.
Perfect Universe (PC)
What is it? This is a game where you mess about with gravity. Should you care? It's hard to tell, but this game has a phenomenal trailer and looks beautiful. Investigate.
Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (Xbox One/PS4/PC)
What is it? The manic shooter based in the Plants Vs Zombies universe. Should you care? Well... it's not for me. But it is 'zany' and that might be right up your alley.
Reagan Gorbachev (PC)
What is it? This is the best high concept ever. It's the 80s. Reagan and Gorbachev have been kidnapped and they have to help each other escape from their cells. Amazing. Should you care? I have no idea if this is terrible or not. I want to play it though.
What is it? Oh wow. This is out this week. Finally. Been waiting for this since forever. It's a time bending first-person shooter Should you care? Yes. Absolutely. Definitely. 100%.
What is it? I have no idea what's going on here. It's about a girl running. It looks really interesting. Should you care? Gorgeous art, unique stuff. This looks different. Different is good. Check it out.
Super Night Riders (PC)
What is it? It's basically a modern version of Enduro Racer. Should you care? I feel like there's a real opportunity for that type of game to be awesome and successful. This looks a little too basic for my liking. Cool (regurgitated) idea though.
The Town of Light (PC)
What is it? This is about woman gone mad. Seems like a VR experience. Looks interesting. Should you care? A lot of people seem excited by this game. The horror crowd will love it.
