New Releases: Week of June 21st, 2020

Happy Fathers Day to all you dad's out there! How did your day go? Was it relaxing or did you just do all the chores you probably had to do anyway because your kids are too small or too damn lazy to help out once in a while?!?! Mine fall into the latter. I love them to death but man teenage girls are a mystery to me still. Maybe that's why I play video games? Ah, who doesn't matter at this point...

Let's take a look at what is in store this week.

Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated
PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One
Release Date: June 23rd, 2020

Our beloved pals in Bikini Bottom are reliving their adventure from 2003. It is a testament to the creators of Spongebob that he and all his friend are nearly as popular today as they were 17 years ago. The new rehydrated version adds in some multiplayer and boss battle (vs. Robo-Squidward) that was cut from the original.

Kingdom Hearts: Dark Road
Android, iOS
Release Date: June 22nd, 2020

I don't usually put mobile games on my list but this week is rather dull and a number of titles in the Kingdom Hearts series landed on Xbox Game Pass not too long and they have been on my mind. I managed to play through KHIII but it was/is a totally convoluted storyline. While I had fun and the game play was great I waffle on going back to other titles for fear of being even more confused.


Blobkin Blaster: Defend The Reef!
Release Date: June 21st, 2020

I don't usually put a demo on our list. In fact I never have but this will be the one exception. You see, my brother in law worked on this game. He works for Theory Animation who have done work for Disney, Amazon, music videos and more. They started an offshoot game studio called Brave Lunch to explore some other ideas and just launched their demo for Blobkin Blaster on the Steam Store. If you have a rig and are up an running on VR, Blobkin Blaster is free to download! They would love your feedback as they push toward a December 2020 release date.
