The Latest

New Game Releases: July 27th-August 2nd, 2017

With a sales boost spurred by last week’s release of Splatoon 2, the Nintendo Switch continues to gain momentum. This week the hybrid gains more new game releases than another other console or portable. But don’t worry if you haven’t been able to find one of the coveting systems at retail, with titles like The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel and Hey! Pikmin lined up, there’s plenty of notable experiences on other platforms.

Robert’s Pick: The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel’s original Vita release coincided with a trip to Japan- and despite all the allures of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, commute times and late-night hours were dutifully spend with Cold Steel’s Class VII. In the past, developers often had difficulty moving their franchises into the third dimension, but fundamentally avoids issues. Not only do you have a story nearly as good as the Kiseki games, but bonding, battle, and even a cooking system that bests its peers.

  1. I’m curious what games are included in the Namco Museum collection? Its kind of cool they didn’t try selling them individually.

    • • Pac-Man
      • Dig Dug
      • Galaga
      • Galaga ’88
      • The Tower of Druaga
      • Sky Kid
      • Splatterhouse
      • Rolling Thunder
      • Rolling Thunder 2
      • Tank Force

      ten games, so $3 per title. Not bad but $20 would be awesome.

  2. Air Zonk never works in any TG-16 emulator, so I might have to pick it up.

  3. Hey guys,

    just a heads up that Shadow Tactics – Blades of the Shogun will be out on 8/1 in the US on PS4 and Xbox One.

  4. Lovely loli this week.
