New Releases: Week of May 130 2021


Lots of variation coming your way as I write this on a rainy holiday weekend in the US.  We’ve got the Ghosts n’ Goblins franchise revived and a new world of flora and fauna coming at you soon.  And Griftlands might be the game that finally gets me to check out deck builders.


Ghosts ‘N Goblins Resurrection

Release Date: June 1, 2021

Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, (already out on NS)  


I totally missed that this came out for the Nintendo Switch in February for the 35th anniversary of the franchise.  Players take up the role of Aruthur and fight against zombies and skeletons.  The art style is updated to feel more like a picture book and while the difficulty is still tough it will allow you the option of adapting if you keep dying in the same spot.



Release Date: June 1 and 4, 2021

Platforms: PC, NS, PS4, XBO 


Griftlands has been in early access for almost 2 years and officially launches this week.  It's a roguelike deck builder with RPG elements.  You select one of the mercenary characters to play as and choices matter as you navigate the world to make friends and enemies.  I’m looking forward to checking this one out.
