This week, we’re going to see some old things, which will be sold to us as if they were new by merchants confident that we will go all mushy and buy them once again, even though we bought them the last several times they released. Of course we will. We have to. The consequences of not doing it are simply not worth contemplating.
I’ll take flak for this as a fan of There’s Poop In My Soup, but I’ll probably be getting Not Without My Poop. You play as a dung beetle trying to roll his massive haul back home through various hazardous environments where you don’t often see dung beetles.
The influence of Monster Hunter in Japan is difficult to overstate. It single-handedly kept the PSP afloat against the 3DS and has been rivaled in sales only by juggernauts like Pokémon and Dragon Quest. The Monster Hunter series is praised for its meaty combat, hugely varied weapon classes, and supremely satisfying player progression systems.
Every time I look at the list, I misread Full Metal Furies as Full Metal Furries, which would probably be a very different game. As it stands, fine folks at Cellar Door have decided to follow up Rogue Legacy with an action/brawler RPG with a heavy emphasis on co-op.
There are those who might look at this list and say there’s nothing to see. There are those who might look at this list and say “Call me in March when they start making games again.” There are those who are wrong about Adam Sandler movies.
To them I say: Challenge accepted. I bet I can find at least five games worth telling you about.
Well Well Well, a new year is upon us, full of promise and hopes, some of which will be realized, some not. And that’s just the videogame release list!
There are a lot of sequels and re-releases due out this year.
My goodness, is it that time of year again? Where did 2017 go?
It certainly was a big year for video games. Almost everything that was popular (or “popular” at least) in 2014 got a sequel, Nintendo came out swinging to dominate a new generation of consoles, and we got to see the dawn of a whole new Moral Panic.
Exciting stuff! But enough previews!
