Welcome folks, and happy “70th Anniversary of Long-Haired Hare (starring Bugs Bunny)” week! You may all celebrate by shaking your head scornfully at those simpletons of the past who would go to movie theaters to watch short cartoons.

The biggest title coming out this week is Super Mario Maker 2, or as we PS4-owners like to call it, “Little Big Planet with Marios.” It expands on the original in nearly every conceivable way: more items, more enemies, more game styles and themes, multiplayer modes, and of course, the addition of Super Mario 3D World. Oh, and slopes. The catch is that you have to be a member of Nintendo Switch Online to upload or play player-created levels.

There’s a few cool ports coming out, if you missed these games the first time around: Hollow Knight on PS4, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and *rubs glasses* Devil May Cry on the Switch.

Total War Three Kingdoms - Reign of Blood is not an expansion, just DLC that introduces gore and dismemberment to battle scenes. Read the devs’ description of the content and tell me it doesn’t sound like death metal lyrics:

Violent battle fatalities
Gory combat animations on the campaign map
Blood spraying across the battlefield and spilling on the floor
Guts spilling out of stomach wounds
Blood-soaked event clips
Dismemberment of both humans and horses
Decapitation of humans

It turns out last week’s GOTW, The Sinking City, is actually coming out this week. But it already has a GOTW medal.

That honor goes to Super Mario Maker 2 this week. While there’s certain to be a bounty of shared levels in no time, you may also want to hit up our Mario Maker forum thread for help finding the best ones. If there’s one thing we all know about Nintendo, they love those 16-digit share-codes.

I have to chime in for Super Mario Maker 2. I bought the original years ago to play with my 3-year-old daughter. I designed no-death levels for her, and she giggled and squealed at every cleverly thwarted Thwomp and trapped giant-sized goomba. The first time I included a pit to leap over, she gave me the saddest face, “No die, Daddy. You jump.”

She’s now 6, and Pokémon and Princesses are more her thing. But I know she’ll take a break from her great balls and grand ballrooms for a little more Daddy-Mario time. I’m eager to try co-op construction with her or turn her loose on a level for me to play. Plus, I also have a 2-year-old son, so I think I’ll revisit the no-failure design once more. It’s never too early to learn how to toss a few fireballs!

Here's the list, now in release-date order!

Tough week for the old wallet. Mario Maker 2, the return of Samurai Shodown, and a new Forklifting Simulator?

Also a Steam sale week?

I’m not made of money here!

Not a single mention of Judgment.

What a sad, sorry state of affairs we're in when no one wants to improve their fighting ability by getting drunk and then suplexing someone into the pavement.

A lot of dumb people releasing new PC games during the Steam sale

Judgment and Mario Maker 2 for me, eventually. Might have to wait till Christmas for MM2.
