        Yeah this release snuck up on me. I think I might wait until it is on sale or I have nothing else to play.

      Some thoughts on this week:

      Rising Storm 2: Vietnam - This game looks pretty nuts. 64 player MP. Wonder if it'll take off.
      Star Trek: Bridge Crew - might pick it up, need to watch some videos on how a round plays
      Tokyo 42 - Watched a trailer for this on steam, looks kinda unique. Isometric open world GTA style game or something like that.
      Tekken 7 - on steam? Weird/cool.
      Perception - crowd funded game getting a release, and including a Switch release. This one was developed by a new studio from ex Bioshock and Dead Space developers. Was curious how this one was going to turn out
