This week is much like the one after a snowstorm rolls through where everyone looks at what's coming next with relief.  All the big releases of the year are out and absorbing much of our time and those games that come are either quite niche or are so likely to be picked up by unkowing grandmothers for little Bobby and his "NintendoPlayBox".

Let's see what hits this week

PS4
Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed
Speakeasy
Thomas Was Alone
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
Aqua Kitty DX

XB1
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

PS3
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

360
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

WiiU
Thomas Was Alone
Kenji: Rise of a Hero
Mighty Final Fight
Super Mario Ball
Penguins of Madagascar

3DS
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
Penguins of Madagascar

Vita
Aqua Kitty DX

PC
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

So, what are you getting? 

Myself, I'm letting my wallet rest, at least in terms of games.  Steam sales be damned.

Super Mario Ball? Will have to look that up.

Nothing new, but I'm sure I'll pick up some things in the Steam sale and maybe some online BF deals.

I'm drowning in games already, but I've preordered Little Big Planet 3 (it comes out in Europe this Wednesday), and after that I'm going to buy Far Cry 4, which is probably still a week or two away for me personally.

So no, nothing from this week's American list at least. GTA 5 is dominating my life right now.

Ah yes, Thomas Was Alone will show off the true power of the PS4!

(It's actually a really good game and you should play it.)

It's Mario Pinball Land (on Virtual Console) to those of us in the US.

Nothing new for me this week.

Aqua Kitty is supposed to be pretty great.

I'll be keeping an eye on the 20's rock-paper-scissors brawler Speakeasy, because I like the theme.

Geometry Wars 3 - I'll wait for reviews.

I'll download Thomas Was Alone if it's cross buy and cross save compatible.  Good game.

The only game that seems like a lock, though, is Mario Pinball Land.

Nothing, and let me tell you it is KILLING me still having not jumped on any of the recent flood of games. Still holding out for birthday presents.  icon_biggrin

Nothing.  Dragon Age is going to keep me plenty busy for the foreseeable future.

Geometry Wars 3, perhaps.

Waiting for my free copy of Limbo for XB1 early adopter.

Nothing here. 

And really even if someone told me I had to buy something I would be hard pressed to pick something.

A new cap, because I left my beloved one on the train this morning and it went away without me. But no games.  icon_frown

It looks like the first episode of Tales of The Borderlands is out this week, and it's getting great reviews.

I've been looking forward to Tales from the Borderlands, but my policy of waiting to play episodic games until they're completely released has worked out pretty well so far.  Bugs get patched, prices drop, and waiting a week between chapters works out a lot better for me than trying to remember what happened a couple months back.

Persona Q is a different story.  Game Informer gave it a glowing review, saying that it combines the best features of the Persona and Etrian Odyssey games, and Atlus games have notoriously limited production runs.  I'll probably pick it up sometime this week, even if it'll wait in the backlog until I break from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.

This minus the Pokeman part. And I ended up 'pre-ordering' this weekend so it will be here today.  icon_wink

Waiting for the price and reviews of Warhammer 40k Armageddon on PC. Unfortunately reviews will probably be mixed and it will be expensive. Edit: it's on sale for $30.

My wife bought me Dragon Age: Inquisition for PS4. It has been quite a fun ride so far!

GT's excellent review of Rollers of the Realm moved it from a "someday" to a "right now" purchase.  I also picked up Goat Simulator, because the new fantasy MMO-themed add on looked so utterly ridiculous and over-the-top that I just had to check it out.

Be interesting to hear your thoughts. Its fun, I like it, but it never really hooked me. I would say it's a wait for a sale game.
