New Releases: Week of July 22, 2018


Slow week in video game new releases. Mostly ports to new consoles and one series finale. Since there’s not much new to play this week any 2old2players heading to ReplayFX in Pittsburgh next weekend? The majority of my time will be spent playing in the world’s largest pinball tournament but I’ll try to check out some video games too!


Mega Man X Legacy Collection

Release Date: July 24, 2018

Platforms: PS4, PC, XBOne, NS


This collection has updates for Megaman X 1-6 for the latest generation of hardware.  New features include challenge modes, the option to update graphics to higher resolution, and a museum of Megaman history that showcases merch, commercials, and more.


No Man’s Sky

Release Date: July 24, 2018

Platforms: XBOne


Hello Games seems to be doing exactly the opposite of their super hyped launch that mostly flopped for other consoles. There’s a dearth of info on what enhancements the XBOne version of No Man’s Sky contains. I can’t even find a trailer that’s recent! We’ll have to wait and see when the review embargos lift.


The Banner Saga 3

Release Date: July 24, 2018

Platforms: PC, NS, XBOne, PS4


I could have sworn I’d done a new release about this recently but it must have been Banner Saga 2 coming out for some other platform. This is the finale of the series funded by fans on Kickstarter. It’s a turn-based RPG set in a fantasy world with compelling storytelling.
