Were you enjoying the lull in game releases over the last month or so? Well, I have good (or bad, depending how big your Pile of Shame) news. It's over. Well and truly over.

Take this week as an example. There's the console release of Sonic Mania. StarCraft: Remastered finally launches. There's the Nidhogg sequel. Night Trap is back. Undertale is getting a console launch, as is Conan Exiles and Tokyo 42. Strap in, it's getting busy.


Video: Back in the 1990s, folks thought that video games that relied heavily on filmed sequences were the future. That future never really came to pass, but the cheesiness of 1990s games like Night Trap and Harvester earned them places of affection in gamers' collective subconscious. However, some of the onscreen talent from those games wound up in really dark places.


This isn't something you see every day. Earlier this week, a man walked into a used game store in Albuquerque, New Mexico and sold a bunch of old Sega stuff. Among it was a box that contained 203 copies of Night Trap, one of the most infamous home console games ever released.
