New Releases: Week of September 20, 2020


Fall is in the air in New England. I’ve been keeping busy playing Paper Mario: The Origami King and trying to get The X-Files Point-And-Click adventure I somehow missed in the 90s to run on PS2 or PC. I now understand why we need remasters for all these games. I want to believe I can get this game to run but so far no luck. PS2 kinda works but the cursor doesn’t render correctly which makes pointing and clicking difficult.  I’m heading out to pick up a PS1 later today at an arcade/game store, hoping the originally intended hardware will do the trick. I'm psyched to support an arcade which were just allowed to open this week in Massachusetts under COVID restrictions. Anyways back to the new games this week, we’ve got lots of old franchises rising anew. 


Halo 3 ODST

Release Date: September 22, 2020

Platforms: PC (Already available on XBO, X360) 

This hit the XBoxes a while back and lands for PC in the Master Chief Collection this week. Which is a bit strange since this title has basically nothing to do with Master Chief and focuses on the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, hence the ODST...


13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

Release Date: September 24, 2020

Platforms: PC, PS4 

Holy genre mashup Batman! This one is part sidescroller, part RTS, and part mecha battler. The story unfolds through 13 different characters and their interactions. The caption in the image above I think about covers the rest...


Ginga Force

Release Date: September 24, 2020

A vertical shoot-em-up with immersive storytelling? If this one isn't epicly difficult I might need to pick it up.
