This week, I’ve opted to do something a bit different with the new releases, especially after missing a week(!). No longer will I list every game that’s coming out, but rather the ones that I know of and that we care about, and think you will too.
Either way, enjoy these new goodies. I probably won’t play any of these due to cash flow issues, but hey, it’s nice to know that there are AAA games coming out in February instead of September, am I right?
