Right, time for the trailer dump. Let's start with Pathfinder Kingmaker, since there's been a bit less chatter about that.
Interesting, although visually it does look a fraction flat. Let's move to the major Aussie games this week: Armello and Think of the Children, both of which are hitting the Switch.
Armello on the Switch is looking awfully like what I imagined the mobile experience would eventually be, so that's neat. Let's carry on with the rest:
Some of the facial animations look a bit janky, but the story is what I always enjoyed from the NBA 2K series. Be fun to see this week how the three stories in FIFA play out.
