New This Week in Video Games (8/23 – 8/29)

by Dean James


Now this is much more like it with plenty of games that are new this week. The theme this week seems to be familiarity, though we still have some completely brand new games as well.

The big newcomer this week is Sony’s latest first party title with Until Dawn. This horror survival game, which gives you choices, has a star studded cast and it will be interesting to see if it can sell well.

The latest entry in the annual Madden franchise is here with Madden 16, complete with the addition of the much talked about Draft Champions mode.

After that, we have some actual remakes and remasters. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is a from the ground remake, while Dishonored: Definitive Edition is just bringing the game to current-gen consoles, with some improvements of course.

We also have the Mega Man Legacy Collection, which just basically brings the classic NES games out with a few additions.
