New Release Rundown ~ Week of 8.14.2011

on August 18, 2011 6:30 PM

Let’s hit the ground running, shall we? The fall season starts…now! There’s not a ton of releases this week, but there’s some great ones scattered around in there. Most notably we have two stylistic action titles – El Shaddai and No More Heroes. I highly recommend El Shaddai, we’ve been talking about it here for quite a while, and it’s finally out for everyone to check out. If you’re a PC gamer into the indie scene we have titles like From Dust and Bastion to keep you busy as we slowly work our way farther into the “awesome new releases every week” season.
