New Releases: Week of August 22 2021


Lots of variety coming your way this week. Definitely something for everyone with multiplayer, dungeon crawlers, RPGs, puzzlers, platformers and survival horror.  I  am most excited Psychonauts 2 is finally here!  


Aliens: Fireteam Elite

Release Date: August 22, 2021

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XBX/S 

Hey it's a game about that movie where no one listens to the smart woman and only she and her cat are alive at the end.  It’s a third person multiplayer shooter and Disney’s 20th Century games was involved in the licensing.  They really do own everything now!


King’s Bounty II

Release Date: August 24, 2021

Platforms: PS4, PS5, NS, PC, XBO 

Why when something is II does my brain immediately add electric boogaloo?  A sequel to the 1990 turn-based RPG.  The trailer looked pretty boring but that skeleton guard was pretty sweet and plague masks!


Murder Mystery Machine

Release Date: August 25, 2021

Platforms: PC 

This noir deduction thriller developed by an indie studio in Scotland looks like it has a lot of potential.  The trailers seem to indicate there’s no voice acting though.


Psychonauts 2

Release Date: August 25, 2021

Platforms: PS4, PC, XBO, XBX/S 

I’m a backer for this one, look for my name in the credits and hall of brains!  I loved the first game other than the final level where we ultimately rage quit and watched the end on youtube (worst platform level ever!).  This picks up the story at the end of the VR title Psychonauts Rhombus of Ruin, can’t wait to see what’s in store for Raz!



Release Date: August 27, 2021

Platforms: PS4, NS, PC, XBO 

This RPG was inspired by The Legend of Zelda and Studio Ghibli's films.  It’s got hand drawn art and an open world to explore.  


Tormented Souls

Release Date: August 27, 2021

Platforms: PS5, NS, PC, XBX 

A modern take on the fixed perspective horror genre this plays homage to Resident Evil and Silent Hill.
