God Eater 2 Rage Burst [official site], a Monstalike action-RPG from Bandai Namco, came out today and they’re throwing in a revamp of the first game too.

Originally released on Playstation Vita in 2014, the recently released infographic-themed puzzle platformer Metrico+ [official site] is a port with extra content for PC and consoles. Does it survive the transition from weeny-screened handheld to big-screened behemoth? Here s wot I think:>

“Wait for the Game of the Year Edition,” they tell you, tapping their nose conspiratorially. “Never pay a milliner – you can restore your hat by felting your navel fluff,” they hiss. “And remember to hang fennel above your door to ward off witches.”

I’m not sure how useful the GotY household tip is now, given that games and their DLC season passes go on sale every other week, but I know some of you still believe. If you have been waiting for a GotY Edition before playing The Witcher 3 [official site], then I bring good news: that’s out today. For the rest of us, hey, a new patch is here too.

We are all familiar with the Turing Test, in which a computer and a man must engage in a freestyle rap battle to determine which one is thinking . But there s also a videogame of the same name, which is out today. The Turing Test [official site] is a first-person puzzler set in a research base on Europa, in which you play astronaut Eva Turing as she tries to find out where everyone has gone. It s part of Squeenix s indie claw machine, the Square Enix Collective, and it looks like this.

Planet Coaster’s [official site] announcement barely caught my attention at all. There was a time when a new theme park management game might have tickled my fancy, but the subgenre hadn’t been attractive for a while and I didn’t expect Frontier’s game to revive my interest. To do so, it’d have to be a proper simulation that paid as much attention to visitors as to rollercoasters, and it’d need to care about every aspect of its parks rather than focusing on some kind of first-person ride gimmick.

As the developer diaries started to appear, I realised that Planet Coaster was the game to revive my interest in park management, and that it was doing all of the things I’d hoped for and more.

Spiritual successor to Uplink and 2nd best hacking game ever Hacknet [official site] is getting a 3-4 hour expansion pack at the end of the year. Hacknet Labyrinths injects a new gang of cyberpunks into the game, led by a fella called Kaguya who wants some favours from you. Considering it only takes about 7 or 8 hours to complete the base game, that s a chunky bit of extra stuff.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.>

I haven’t played The Cat Lady [official site]. Or at least, I haven’t played it to completion. If I had to answer my own question, ‘have you played The Cat Lady?’, I’d have to say no, because what little of it I saw, I now believe I misread or was in the wrong mood to appreciate. Time to give it a second chance.

Fast and deadly 2D arrow-o-platformer TowerFall Ascension [official site] has been big on the local multiplayer scene since even before its official release but what if you have more than three friends? Are you expected to take turns to fight? Can TowerFall expect patience after pumping your blood with fire and murder? That’s not right. But, good news: an eight-player version is now out, touched up for frenetic murderfun.

Demons? Again? Already? I swear, it’s not even a decade since neon green last swept The World of World of Warcraft. Fashion moves at such a pace there! No wonder everyone’s always grinding for new pauldrons: they’re trying to keep up in a world of violent fashionistas. Anyway, point is: World of Warcraft: Legion [official site], the sixth expansion to Blizzard’s fantasy MMORPG, is now live. Try pairing a dark top with chaosfire-green leggings and, in honour of the expansion’s new Demon Hunter class, finish the look off with a ratty blindfold. There! Ooh you’ll be the talk of the Broken Isles.
