New Releases: Week of August 18th, 2022

Coffee Memoirs:   Zombies are still in style.  I don’t think there is anything bold about saying that since Hollywood continues to make big bank, Netflix churns out new Z movies and episodes and games are being made and played.  I am back to playing State of Decay 2 with friends and having a blast. Narrow escapes with slivers of health after making hasty decisions with unprepared characters = OMG good times.  I’ll never forget when Halo launched and all of a sudden realized there were basically smart scary zombies in the game.  Halloween isn’t too far into the future either so dust off those zombie games and let them beat you within an inch of your life!

Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?
Release Date: August 23, 2022
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX, Switch

Just like the show without the real Jeff Foxworthy but in the palm of your hands.  Have I watched the show to compare it like this?  No, cause I have no doubts about being smarter than a Fifth grader and so there is no desire to watch it.  Maybe you can play this to impress upon your children your vast knowledge of things that happened before they were born and make them feel dumb.  Go ahead, that’s what they are there for right.

Saints Row
Release Date:
August 23, 2022
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX

Rag doll physics, outright ridiculous antics and fun with friends Saints Row is checking the boxes for a fun way to blow off all the rage you can muster.  Been thinking of getting this one personally and I can’t help but imagine if you have kids you might not being enjoying this particular game genre very often for obvious reasons.  Think even more slapstick than GTA and you are on the right track for this gem.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance
Release Date:
August 25, 2022
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX, Switch

Giant robots and fighting in them has been a dream for man since we were hanging out in caves, we just didn’t know it yet.  We are still working on that dream with it coming closer and closer to fruition but now the AI is so advanced I am afraid that we will never have the chance except in video games!  So enjoy it now in games or forever hold your peace.
