This week there’s really no big games, instead a relatively short list of smaller games. Perhaps a diamond in the rough or two can be found below?

This week I’m going to probably focus on playing more of The Ascent, that top-down RPG shooter that came out last week. It wasn’t on my radar at all, but then I gave it a shot over the weekend while waiting for the Halo servers to stabilise and had a good time.
