With a trifecta of Dead Rising releases, three different versions of NHL 17, and a BioShock Collection that compiles a trio of titles, the first super-prime is exceedingly prevalent across this week’s schedule of new game releases. Another notable is a retail release for the PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360, with Batman: The Telltale Series making its way to physical media as well as Phoenix Wright appearing on Nintendo’s 3D-powered portable.

Robert’s Pick: Narrowing down a single game is its own challenge this week. I’ve been enjoying MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death, which makes an easy recommendation for Vita-owning, dungeon-crawl fans.  But naturally, I can’t ignore the tag team attack by two solid visual novels, with both PSYCHO-PASS: Mandatory Happiness and STEINS;GATE making stateside appearances this week. With the former extending a Minority Report-like premise and the later exploring time-travel (while having an Akihabara setting), you really can’t go wrong with either. Maybe one day we’ll even see CHAOS; HEAD receive a localization.
