New Releases: Week of August 9, 2020


Lots of brawling going on for new releases this week.  Boss battles, battle royale, and some officially licensed UFC action.  Since I was last on new releases I’ve been digging into Beyond a Steel Sky.  I’m enjoying the story and puzzles.   Anyone else check it out?
