What's New This Week: Video Games

December 12th - December 19th


This is the last big hurrah for gaming in 2016, as there are only 6 releases next week.


Big standouts this week are ports and Super Mario Run, which will be Nintendo’s first foray into mobile gaming as a developer. The game is launching on iOS only this week, with an Android launch to eventually follow. Even though it isn’t out yet, Super Mario Run has already stirred up it’s fair share of controversy, as it requires a constant internet connection to play. This essentially kills the game for those hoping to play it during a commute, or not in a heavy metropolitan area where they can constantly hop from wi-fi network to wi-fi network.


The PC farming craze Stardew Valley finally hits consoles this week, and looks deliver the same amount of addiction. If you have never played Harvest Moon and your only exposure to games based on farming is FarmVille, you are in for quite a surprise.
