New Releases: Week of July 7, 2014

We’re officially in the dog days of summer now that another Independence Day is in the books and the new release schedule has slowed to a crawl. Sadly, a crawl is being generous as there’s really not much to talk about in the world of gaming this week. Before we get started, however, a quick 2o2p PSA announcement: we promise not to write in the “every other game website review style” and to limit our use of unnecessary exclamation points to every fourth sentence! This week’s games feature mice and their tireless quest for cheese, the return of the iconic Q*bert, a puzzler from Big Fish games, a high seas pirate adventure and Telltale Games latest episode of The Wolf Among Us.
