We’re starting to get into the business end of gaming’s first quarter. The new Ori finally drops this week, there’s the Nioh sequel, and Cooking Mama is back to take on the world of Instagram.

State of Decay 2 is getting a Steam launch this week, and Path of Exile‘s Delirium expansion is out as well. As for Switch fans, there’s what looks like the saddest RPG ever about a small kitten trying to survive, and the utterly gorgeous puzzler Inbento about making bento boxes for your cat partner/friend/housecat-mate.

Here’s the lineup:

  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps | PC, Xbox
  • Nioh 2 | PS4
  • My Hero Ones Justice 2 | PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch
  • Cooking Mama: Cookstar | Switch
  • Path of Exile: Delirium | PC
  • State of Decay 2: Juggernaught Edition | PC (Steam)
  • A Street Cat’s Tale | Switch
  • Overpass | Switch
  • Inbento | Switch
  • Hidden Through Time | Switch
  • Alder’s Blood | Switch
  • Neon City Riders | Switch
  • Brotherhood United | Switch
  • Mystic Vale | Switch
  • Syder Reloaded | Switch
  • Langrisser I and II | PC
  • Horizon’s Gate | PC
  • The Escaper | PC
  • Ritual Crown of Horns | Xbox
  • Mecho Tales | Xbox

Definitely plenty to get stuck into this week. What will you spend your time on?


  • I keep forgetting that I have the first Nioh from PS+ ages ago. Really should give it a try, but just don’t know if I want to commit the time to it.

  • I tried out the Nioh 2 trial recently and thought it was pretty great. I would love to play both Nioh games, but Warlords of New York has me preoccupied atm.

  • Although I’m still not really sure I enjoyed the first Nioh, there was enough that I liked about it to give this one a go in the hopes that it improves on a vector toward my areas of interest. Being able to create a character that fits my aesthetics (ie. Looks like Ayane or Rikimaru from Tenchu) is a start. Hopefully between Nioh 2, Sekiro and Ghost of Tsushima I’ll feel like we’re back in the glory days of Tenchu when every game was a Ninja/Samurai game.

  • My first thought was I’m not sure the instagram focus on cooking mama is a good concept of cooking to model for my daughter
    My second thought was I should have consider that earlier considering the first thing we did after cooking dinner last night was put it up on instagram
