Sorry everyone, Mass Effect: Andromeda doesn't come out until next week. But there's a neat range of games out this week to tide you over: the first two Danganronpa games are coming to the PS4, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is out and the trippy Nier: Automata drops on PC.
Nier: Automata (PC)
What is it? The PC launch of the eccentric cyborg action RPG from PlatinumGames.
Should you care? If you don't get it now, then get it later this year. Few games switch it up as much as Automata does, which makes it worth a look in for that alone.
'.Nier. Automata begins as a scrolling shooter. Then it's a twin-stick shooter, a third-person action RPG and a 2.5D platformer. It's equal parts comedy and tragedy. It's a game that's whatever it needs to be at any particular moment to be completely amazing..'
Styx: Shards of Darkness (PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? An third-person action game that revolves around infiltrations, shadows and stealth.
Should you care? The original, Master of Shadows, wasn't too bad but nothing special. It's made by the same studio behind Blood Bowl, so I'd wait to see how it fares after launch.
Kona (PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? An adventure set in the 1970s where you're tasked with unravelling the mystery of a town, while having to survive the blizzard ravaging it.
Should you care? Looks interesting for fans of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or The Long Dark. It's the first part of a four-part series, so it'll be fun to see how this develops.
Chaos Code -New Sign of Catastrophe (PS4)
What is it? A 2D anime fighter.
Should you care? If you're not a fan of the genre, doubtful.
Blue-Collar Astronaut (PS3, PS4, Vita, XBO)
What is it? An arcade space game about landing on planets.
Should you care? Think Lunar Lander. The aesthetic is nice, but this type of gameplay will probably turn a lot of people off.
Death Squared (PS4)
What is it? An Australian co-operative puzzle game.
Should you care? One for people who enjoyed playing Portal 2 together.
Dying: Reborn (Vita)
What is it? A horror-themed puzzler designed to echo the experience of an escape room.
Should you care? The non-PSVR version of Dying Reborn got panned as for as I could see, and the PSVR version is also being sold as a separate product entirely - which is pretty crappy.
Torment: Tides of Numenera (PC, PS4, XBO)
Eekeemoo — Splinters of the Dark Shard (PS4)
What is it? A third-person action-adventure about rescuing a dark shard.
Should you care? Looks interesting but also looks a little unfinished.
Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight (PS4)
What is it? A pixel-art Metroidvania platformer.
Should you care? Looks good and the game's PC release was warmly received by the few who played it.
What is it? A twin-stick shooter RPG with co-op and roguelike elements.
Should you care? Soundtrack is neat. One for those who loved Nuclear Throne, perhaps.
What is it? A free-to-play voxel-based MMO.
Should you care? How much grinding do you want to do?
Not the biggest week, but there's a few gems and big games in there. See anything interesting? Or are you busy working off Zelda/Horizon/Ghost Recon Wildlands still? (Or waiting for Andromeda, perhaps?)
