  • Fast RMX – If you liked fantasy races like F-Zero and Fast Racing Neo you’ll be stoked for this one.
  • Just Dance 2017 – Time to bust a move and dance!
  • Human Resource Machine – Uh… wut?  Oh, so this is a puzzle game that mimics being an office worker.  Remember, art imitates life kids.
  • I Am Setsuna – Wait… they made a game based on Chrono Trigger?!  This should be epic.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The next highly anticipated game for our favorite adventurer in green
  • Little Inferno – A cool hipster looking puzzle/adventure game.  These are becoming all the rage lately.
  • Shovel Knight – A modern classic side-scroller.  If you haven’t played this one yet you’re missing out.
  • Skylanders: Imaginators – Time to collect more toys… for another system.  Fans of the series will be stoked.
  • Snipperclips – Puzzle games meet… scrapbooking.  Neat game concept, we’ll have to see how this one pans out.
  • Super Bomberman R – ONE OF MY FAVORITES!  Bomberman back in action and ready to blow up boards or your friends!
  • World of Goo – Hmm, well, I guess every system gets a world of goo game now.  Great game but it’s showing it’s age.
