New Game Releases: March 31st-April 6th, 2016

HunieCam Studio

No April fooling, the first batch of virtual reality titles are here, with games for both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive arriving on Steam this week. For those who didn’t put place a king’s ransom on a pre-order, fear not there are plenty of notables for console and computer, with games like Quantum Break and Enter the Gungeon making their way onto plain old televisions and monitors.

Robert’s Pick: If HunieCam Studio’s Steam description is half as funny as the full game, then HuniePot’s sophomore (-ic) outing might be worth a go, offering a satirical simulation of cam studio management. But laughing does take a backseat to ballistic barrages, meaning Quantum Break gets the real nod. Given Remedy Entertainment’s track record for gunplay across the first two Max Payne games and the Alan Wake titles, I’m doing Quantum Break’s storyline keeps us with the quality of the shooting.

  1. OK, HunieCam Studio sounds funny, but I’m not paying more than $12 to laugh.

    • If it was VR then maybe I’d consider picking up a Rift. But no.

      Instead we get a bunch of indie games that are probably rushed.

  2. Pretty much the OR has the worst launch lineup I’ve ever seen. There’s not a single new game (not just a patched one) I’d want to play.

  3. So Unseen Diplomacy might be kind of cool. video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KirQtdsG5yE

    But there’s no way I’m spending $800+ AND clearing an entire room to play. Sorry but VR seems better if you could go and play it at a place with friends rather than in your home. Maybe it will bring arcades back.

  4. Can you give us a Guilty Gear 2: Overture review please?

  5. I can’t believe HuniePop got this week’s art. You’re so un-Polygon.

  6. Quantum Break for me this week.

  7. Do I need two friends to play 6-Hand Video Poker?

  8. Why cant Mario Super Sluggers be on sale?

  9. I’m up for Qunatum Break as long as I don’t have to watch the crappy live action bits.

  10. VR is going to fail if this is the lineup.

    • I think it will succeed in the long run, but the first wave is pretty pathetic.

      • There’s ONE game (ADR1FT) that I’m sort of interested in. The rest look either cobbled together or ports that I don’t want to play in VR.

        What they should have done is have a few high profile games and Hardcore Henry out on VR for day one.

        • The funniest thing is that GAF has a pinned topic for VR, but you can’t really express any skeptical opinions to VR, since the High Lord proclaimed it will succeed, its just a matter of time.

          I hope EviLore is getting big fat checks from Facebook, HTC, etc and not controlling thought for free.

  11. I really want to run a Romanian cam girl empire.

  12. Nothing this week.

  13. Quantum Break is also available for Windows 10 through the Windows Store on 4/5.
