New Video Game Releases for the Week of 4-9-17

With the release of Persona 5 now behind us, so too passes the torrential downpour of great, content-heavy games. As we all start chipping away at the backlog, we must all be wary of that level of comfort. It may allow a few smaller game releases to slip under the radar this week, and there’s quite a few that, at the least, look worthy of investigation.

Tuesday marks the release of Yooka-Laylee, arguably one of the more monumental new games this week, but everyone gets a little bit of everything. Cosmic Star Heroine should satisfy those looking for an old school JRPG (inspired by Chrono Trigger), A Rose in the Twilight looks macabre and full of trepidation mixed with wonder, and The Sexy Brutale presents an equally strange and disturbing murder mystery to be solved.

Oh, and Planescape: Torment gets an Enhanced Edition that offers a pretty genuine makeover for the classic, so that’s sure to strum some major chords of nostalgia for many.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.
