New Game Releases: April 23rd-29th, 2015

Omega Quintet

Strangely, it’s a big week for games about bodily fluids. Whether players are racing to fertilize the egg in Spermination (do contraceptives play the role of enemies?) or just moving mucus around in the 2D platformer, Flem, we wonder if title around urine and feces can’t be far behind. Developers, quit farting around and get to work on it!

Robert’s Pick: As an inferior hanafuda player, I’m hoping that Koi-Koi Japan can improve my embarrassingly week skills, but with the title coming from Zoo Games (publisher of Chicken Shoot, Jeep Thrills, M&M’s Kart Racing and countless other bargain-bin titles), I’m dubious of the game’s quality. Instead my decisive pick goes to Omega Quintet. Between support for the PS Move controller, an amble amount of fan service through ‘costume destruction’ (think Senren Kagura), and mechanics that mix elements of role-playing with idol simulation, there’s a number of reasons why you should be fighting the “beep” this week.

  1. I figured it out.

    if there’s any kind of anime game released during the week, it gets the main screenshot.

  2. I doun’t know how anyone could support Broken Age/Double Fine/Tim Schafer after the who “3 million only gets you half a game” disaster. The guys a first-class asshat.

    • Well, the excuse was that Broken Age became a much bigger game. But I can how people are mad when you give money and trust to a company, and you expect one thing, but then they deliver something else.

      If you asked me they should have skipped the documentary or make a separate Kickstarter campaign for that.

  3. The problem with Tim is that he has Cliffy B. syndrome. That’s what happens when you start believing the praise people say about you.

  4. “quit farting around”

    Well done. Bravo!

  5. I’ll probably grab Omega Quintet this week if the reviews are decent.

  6. Robert, are you going to review Omega Quintet? Need to know if it’s truly worth $60.

  7. I’m interesting in Dungeons 2. I hope you guys cover it.

  8. I’m thinking about getting Dungeons 2 this week.

  9. It’s the Blare, not the beep.

  10. No Quintet review on launch day? You had one job, dood.
