New Releases: Week of October 11, 2020


Tons of new stuff coming your way this week. Which is probably a good thing since every time I open a Covid data update it looks like we’re going to be spending a lot of time in our houses again soon.  I’m most excited about hot dogs and Koopalings.  Read on to find out more.

I’ve never really understood these cooking games but someone must like them because there sure are a lot of them.  This one is set in a dystopian version of America and you run a food truck to save the world!

NHL 21

The latest in the NHL franchise from EA.  Career modes have been expanded to be more cinematic and on par with NFL and NBA games.  There’s also an add-on for NHL’94 Rewind if you pre-order.


Mario Kart Live Home Circuit

Release Date: October 16, 2020

Platforms: NS


Nintendo’s foray into mixed reality. This game lets the player create tracks on their Switch and then drive actual radio controlled cars with cameras around their home on a physical and virtual track. I’m not a huge racing game fan but this one features the Koopalings who are my favorite so may have to  give it a try. I did just get new hardwood floors in my living room so it's the perfect track.
