Welcome, and happy 51st anniversary week of the Stonewall riots of 1969, one of the most significant events leading up to the modern fight for LGBTQ+ rights. An early morning police raid of the Stonewall Inn gay bar sparked a series of protests and demonstrations in New York City, followed up a year later by the first gay pride marches in several major cities.

The release schedule this week reminds me of Graham’s pixelated stroll in the pre-mouse King’s Quest games: slow, but in a leisurely way. Personally, I loved the King’s Quest series, particularly those few screens in each game where you had to walk on a winding path with instadeath falls, no diagonal controls, and part of it hidden behind a rock. Save early, save often.

The best-looking, original game this week is on VR: Marvel’s Iron Man VR. The flying part looks fun, like a dogfighting sim, but you are more acrobatic and versatile than a plane. You can also do non-shooty things like punch a plane or weld its wing back together; it all depends on how Tony feels about the plane. I’d want a 2D version of this game.

The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos is like a French Bard’s Tale. It’s an isometric RPG with turn-based, party-focused combat. It comes from a popular French audio series that satirises fantasy RPGs. There’s something *kisses fingers* Pratchette about it *kisses fingers again, overdoing it*.

Otherwise this week, games-as-service keep the sushi train coming: Overcooked! 2: Suns Out Buns Out is a free update on PC, but will come to consoles later, while Minecraft Dungeons: Jungle Awakens is the first in a DLC schedule that’s probably planned until 2050. Then there’s the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter, Min Min, who will no doubt become the 75th character my kids can destroy me with.

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

Comments

I thought you had a typo in there with "Blaster Master Zero II: Kanna Raising Simulator" but it turns out that's a weird DLC mode in a Blaster Master game.
