New Game Releases: June 9th-15th, 2016

Kirby Planet Robobot

With the majority of the industry personnel attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the schedule of new releases is a bit slimmer than usual. But despite this respite, there are still a number of remarkable titles hitting store shelves and digital marketplaces. From the beloved pink protagonist’s return in Kirby: Planet Robobot to Definitive Edition of Ori and the Blind Forest, there are a number of enticing efforts to pass the time during those inevitable slow points during the industry pressers.

Robert’s Pick: Sure, Burnout Revenge isn’t a new release; it was originally  published over a decade ago, so you don’t see it listed above. But despite that omission, the distinguished racing-destruction title is making its way to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility list. As such, it will be available for a $15 download, offing fans of Criterion’s car-wrecking title a chance to revisit those beloved tracks and crash junctions. Despite a hectic review schedule, I play to sink a few more hours into this gem, which will inevitably turn into days.

  1. They need to release a MechaKirby Amiibo

  2. I loved Burnout. Paradise was pretty was it felt like a step backward.

    • Yeah, I miss those Crash Junctions, too.

      • Why the hell did Criterion ever get rid of them in the first place? They were the best part about Burnout!

        • Whenever a smaller company gets acquired by EA, Activision, or Microsoft, they seem to lose what made them special int he first place.

  3. I really like Wario: Master of Disguise, but $9.99 is really expensive. That Nintendo tax.

  4. No price on the Steam version of Ori and the Blind Forest.

  5. So is Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition full priced if you bought the original?

    • Yes, which really sucks. They need to offer people that supported them some kind of discount. Yeash!

  6. I’ll be grabbing Kirby: Planet Robobot today.

  7. Nothing for me this week. I’ll watch the E3 pressers and drool about games that won’t come out until 2020.
