For our first article in this new format, we will be covering all of the big new releases from just this past week, including the arguable highlight, NFS: Heat. Though likely very similar to its 2017 predecessor, this new Need For Speed entry does feature a few key differences such as the exclusion of loot boxes, the inclusion of Ferraris, and a brand new dynamic weather system. Plus, it's a new Need For Speed so it's got to be at least some fun to play, right?
Also out this past week, Layton's Mystery Journey for the Switch; Death Stranding for the PlayStation 4; and another River City (Ransom) game for multiple platforms. Be unruly, be expressive, then jump past the break to see these new releases, in addition to a few others that we were several weeks overdue posting about.
