New game releases of August 12-18

"Oh, the summer video game drought!" fools lament. Tush and fie! Maybe the shelves are looking a little empty, but download stores are bulging with wonders next week. My pick of the week is first-person explorer Gone Home, and we'll also get Disney Infinity, punk beat 'em up Charlie Murder, co-op heister Payday 2, DuckTales Remastered, shiny tabletop adaptation Space Hulk, and Europa Universalis IV.

Do remember that DuckTales: Remastered will hit Xbox 360 a fair bit later, on September 11.

        I bet Alice was pissed she didn't get to write the Squids article and boycotted it.

        Technical difficulties meant I couldn't access half the sites I needed, and I was up against the clock to meet a friend for dinner.

      Holy crap, I didn't realize so much was coming out this week. Does anyone know if impressions from previews for Disney Infinity have been good?

        Gone Home is gonna 0wn. It's the game I was looking forward to the most this year, not counting stuff from kickstarter.

      You missed out on BlackPowder Games Betrayer. It releases on the 14th.

        I decided not to list Early Access stuff, only when games actually officially launch.

        This policy may have been applied inconsistently at times.

        Tush, tush. It'll be alright, you don't need to lament.

        It actually makes more sense than fie to me. I like the pedantic nature of tush.
