New Game Releases: Dec. 28th-Jan. 3rd, 2018

Traditionally, the last week of the year is a barren period for game releases. While additions to the PC and Switch libraries ensure the next seven days isn’t total empty, there’s a definite downturn in the number of new offerings. At least titles like SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition and Pic-a-Pix Deluxe are on hand to make the transition into 2018 a bit more bearable.

Robert’s Pick: Although Pic-a-Pix Deluxe is a perfectly capable Picross clone, it’s Image & Form’s SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition that gets the nod this week. Although I already have the game on a multitude of different platforms, my Nintendo Switch has become by entrusted travel companion lately. As such, I’ll be buying Heist once more. You never know when the urge for two-dimensional, tactical engagement will strike. Nicely, this edition bundles “The Heist” DLC as well as all the supplemental weapons, stages, and upgrades that were sold separately.

  1. I’ve seen the name “Guns, Gore and Cannoli” many time before, but never had the slightest interest in the game. I don’t even know what kind of game it is.

  2. I wish you reviewed VNs still….

  3. Super Mario Bros is 8 bucks??

  4. I couldn’t wait for a sale on SteamWorld Heist. Still $20 is a pretty fair price.

  5. Review Sakura no Mori please. I’m curious becuase the art looks pretty decent.
