It’s a full week with lots and lots of games that are probably worth your time. My pick, though, goes to Fortnite.

Welcome to Orbital Decay, an episodic collaborative storytelling RPG made possible by our Patreon subscribers! Join Game Master Michael Zenke as he takes Sean Sands, Shawn Andrich, Karla Andrich and Rob Daviau into a mysterious sci-fi adventure where our heroes don't know who they are, where they are or why they've emerged from their damaged cryo pods in the first place.
There are a lot of games to choose from this week, but I’m going to go with the one I’ve been looking forward to ever since I saw it at PAX East earlier this year.
