So, are you prepared to die this week?  If you have been waiting for the PC version of Dark Souls 2, then I'd guess you are.  Joining is the long-awaited sequel to a game that released 16 years ago and thought to never be finished Tex Murphy saga.   16 years, what's two more weeks?

PC
Dark Souls 2
Tesla Effect:  A Tex Murphy Adventure Pushed back to May 7th
Trials Fusion
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Vita
Demon Gaze

WiiU
Lego The Hobbit
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 - Virtual Console

PS4
Octodad:  Dadliest Catch

So, what's on your list this week?

Also NES Remix 2 comes out on the WiiU eShop.

Too bad they can't bring those out to the 3DS. Despite, you know, the system being perfectly capable of playing NES, GB, GBC, and GBA titles. For that matter, why are the GBA releases only for the WiiU as well (from prior weeks)? I want to give you money, but I have no reason at all to buy your console otherwise!

Probably Octodad for the PS4. I'm sure to get Dark Souls 2 for the PC at some point, but I haven't got the time and energy to put into it right now.

I think you answered your own question slywink  Making games like NES Remix, Earthbound, and the GBA VC releases WiiU exclusive gives people another reason to buy the console, especially people with a soft spot for Nintendo's classic library.  It worked with me - Earthbound and NES Remix helped push me over the edge into buying a WiiU.

As for this week, I'll be getting -
Day One - NES Remix 2, Demon Gaze
Someday - Tesla Effect:  A Tex Murphy Adventure

In a moment of boredom and weakness I bought Trials on the weekend. So nothing more this week.

I almost bought it, but then I remembered how mad it gets me on some of those later courses and decided to wait for a price drop or it being free with PS+. I just can't handle these insanely hard, keep retrying the same thing over and over, types of games anymore. I have way less patience now than I did when I was younger.

I really want Dark Souls 2 but considering how bad I sucked at Dark Souls 1 I don't see myself paying full price for it. So nothing for me this week.

Pretty much this.  I'll try Dark Souls 2 someday, but not at full price.

I'm considering getting Octodad at the PS+ launch price, assuming that the later levels have been tweaked, difficulty wise.

Octodad and NES Remix 2 for me.  Unless the Octodad reviews are terrible.

Also, they're rereleasing a game on PS systems this week (PSV, PS3, PS4) that was a launch game for the original Xbox (though later came out for the GC and PS2) and hasn't been seen since.  It was one of the first games to really embrace cel shading.  It was a shooter of sorts.  Anyone remember?

Spoiler for Hiden:
Cel Damage HD is supposedly coming this week.

I knew there was something this week that wasn't on the list in the OP.  Thanks for reminding me, Bullwinkle.  I will also be getting NES Remix 2.

Apparently the final third of the game has seen major overhauls since it was first released, including actually removing one of the levels there. They admitted that they had lost sight of what people thought was fun about the game, and that they wanted to bring that back with these changes.

I had to do a double-take when I saw it mentioned on Sony's new releases blog post, as I knew I had heard the name somewhere.  I'll probably be picking it up, as car combat games are few and far between.
