What's Out This Week?

This is where you can deliberate anything relating to videogames - past, present and future.

Stadia being delivered on the 22nd instead of the 27th was a nice email to get today. Geographically I'm not far from Mat Murray so maybe I have his.

Can't believe I'm not picking up Shenmue 3 day one. Death Stranding has its hooks firmly in and I have Fallen Order ready to go so Santa will bring me it.

Him cancelling is my gaming disappointment of the year!

As hyped as I’ve been for the new (and old) Bubble Bobble, £35 is pushing it a bit. Unless I have a moment of weakness when I see it on the store, I’ll probably wait for a price drop.

I clung on to my Stadia pre-order until Thursday. With the (disappointing IMO) launch line-up, and ever-increasing list of features not ready for launch, it only took Microsoft talking about Project xCloud to tip me over the edge. As much as I'm intrigued to see what Stadia is capable of, I'm happy to wait for them to iron out the kinks and get the library and streaming-specific features into shape.

I hope I'll be invited to the xCloud preview next year, but even if I'm not, I think the steady, behind-closed-doors progress Xbox is making with streaming seems like a wise move. Fingers crossed that Google knock it out of the park with Stadia, and that I'm jealously watching from the sidelines for the next few months.

Oh cool, The Touryst. I think that only got like one trailer, in that big Direct a while back that was full of loads of indie games that seem to have all been rather quiet since. That game is still a bit of a mystery, but it looked rather cool before. Interested to see the reception.

Stadia arriving tomorrow. So I've gone from 8 dates after to 3 days after to 1 day after. Excited now, especially now we've been gifted Samurai Showdown too

I guess because it's Thanksgiving week in the US? I imagine that makes it tough to get much attention on your game (news, reviews, etc). Plus Black Friday sales mean that you're up against a bunch of deals on games that people missed earlier in the year.

Nonsense! Look at all the high quality games coming to steam alone in the coming week!
If you're not a pc gamer, this will scare you off for life - https://store.steampowered.com/search/? ... oon&os=win

I used to check every day which games had come to steam, it was exciting, there was always a few things worth trying, now it's just an endless slew of utter shit.

This was a handy site, now it's just fucking depressing, I never go there any more - http://www.whatsonsteam.com/

I was always someone who liked to find the hidden gems, all those rough around the edges games yet to be discovered. Now, it just takes too long and you have to be way more discerning, if a game looks bad, 99% of the time, it'll be bad, you just can't give stuff the benefit of the doubt anymore, nobody has that amount of time to waste.

Mega Balls
Rock Simulator
Image
Bondage Girl
Cowboys vs hipsters

Oh, shit! Onion games! Not coming out this week though, so my point still stands - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1138 ... ve_Yamada/

Blaster Master Zero 2 doesn't look bad, the exception that proves the rule - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1034 ... er_Zero_2/

Sanic The Hawtdawg: Da Movie: Da Game 2.1: Electric Boogaloo 2.2 Version 4: The Squeakquel: VHS Edition: Directors cut: Special edition: The Musical & Knackles
Not a game, so my point still stands

Look at this darling!

Runoveryou
Runoveryou is a Run Over simulator, in a way.
That was just 15 minutes I spent looking on steam and I can already feel the despair creeping in.

I’d rather learn another language than poke around Steam for new releases.

For anyone unfamiliar with suits' crippling xenophobia, that really is saying a lot! ;)

I would so gladly go back to the days before Gabe sat on the rickety sluice gates.

The epic store isn't close to being the competition we need, but by god is the market wide open for someone to swoop in and monopolise on valve's lazy complacency.

Arcade Archives Hyper Sports tomorrow. Obsessed over it on the Spectrum to the point I could 100% the shooting level with my eyes closed, but never played the arcade version so I can’t wait!

Yikes to this week's Steam releases. Thanks for that, clippa! :shock:

Speaking of the Epic Game Store, Rayman Lemons is their freebie this week (until 6th December). :mrgreen:
