Games of March 2017



It's that time again!

March has rolled around and with it the last entries of Styx, Atelier, Nier, Mass Effect, Toukiden, The Legend of Zelda and Vikings: Wolves of Midgard which is something that I've personally been looking forward to for a while now.

With Zelda releasing on both the WiiU and the new Switch that launched on the same day tomorrow, are you picking one up or keeping to the "legacy" system in order to experience Link's latest adventure. Chalgyr's Game Room will be covering The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on both of these systems and bringing you what we thought of this latest Hyrulian adventure later this month!

Friday March 3rd

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo's newest home console comes out tomorrow. If it can be supported more than they did the WiiU which was essentially left to its own abismal devices it could be boost that they need to get back into the game. I personally loved the concept of the WiiU having used it more for playing the older Wii RPGs with the needed CPU boost. With the Switch eseentially looking like a WiiU Gamepad with removable sides, I just hope that it lives up to expectations. Who doesn't want to take their home console on the go with them?

Check back later this month for our coverage on the system!



Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack - Switch

At this point it only makes sense for the Skylanders to grace the newest console. I figure Lego Dimensions shouldn't be too too far behind.




Just Dance 2017 - Switch

I would have liked more new titles for the Switch's launch but like the Skylanders it makes sense to have some titles that people already know and that may either may have been holding out on or would like to get for a party night.




1-2-switch - Switch

Something new on the lineup is a quick switch up styled party game. It could be interesting but the real party game is coming up next!




Super Bomberman R - Switch

Everyone loves a good old versus and there's still almost nothing better than a good round of Bomberman. Not having really had a good shot at the limelight since the PS3 version years ago now, dust off your fingers and dust your "friends" Super Bomberman R!




The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Switch, Wii U

I've been looking forward to the newest entry for a long while now. With it coming out on both the WiiU and the Switch I personally will be playing both. While we will be separately reviewing both versions we will also be doing a comparason for this once exlcusive WiiU title that was supposed to use the gamepad to its full extent.



Tuesday March 7th

Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey - PS4

The newest Atelier is just around the corner. Having just gone through Atelier Shallie Plus and Sophie on the PC recently I'm more than ready and excited to jump into the newest with Firis for another fun Alchemic adventure.




LEGO Worlds - PS4, XB1

I thought it was weird when I saw LEGO Worlds on the list of releases for the month. Thinking to myself "didn't this come out years ago?" it did as an Early Access title that Breanna covered back in July of 2015. Guess the full release is here!




Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands - PS4, XB1, PC

Fan of the last genius' literary work, I never really got into the video game adaptations of his work. Ghost Recon Wildlands may change that this month as this look amazing. Maybe I should go play The Division first though...




Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 - PS4, XB1

It's been a good six years since MvC3 came out on the PS3. It would be interesting to see what Nick thinks of the newest version compared to the orignal that he reviewed back in 2011 and the ultimate version back in 2014.




NieR: Automata - PS4

It's finally here! I'm a huge fan of the original on both the PS3 and the 360 and played the "living snot" out of both of them. I had started to play the demo when it became available but held back after two minutes realizing that I didn't want to actually spoil this one.




Tuesday March 14th

Danganronpa 1-2 Reload - PS4

I have both of these on my Vita and have still yet to actually load them which makes me a little sad as I still haven't found the time to do so. Maybe I'll just skip to the PS4 versions as I've only heard amazing things and Nick was a big fan of both the first and the second.




Styx: Shards of Darkness - PS4, XB1, PC

It took a while for me to get used to how to handle Styx when I was originally introduced to him. Having since played of Orc's and Men where he made his actual debut (and acts as a sequel to Master of Shadows in which I covered the PS4 and Robert hte XB1 versions) I can say that I've been looking very forward to this scarcastic short green goblin's latest adventure.



Friday March 17th

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + - Switch

This one has been around for a while. Seeing a re-re-re release at this point with the Switch? I may want to actually try it out before Rémi gives me another lecture on how good it is.




Tuesday March 21st

Toukiden 2 - PS4, Vita

Here's an entry on the list that a few us have been looking forward to. Nick, Richard and myself were all fans of the orignal and have been looking forward to the open world version of the Japanese Monster Hunter-like.




Mass Effect Andromeda - PS4, XB1, PC

This can go either way. I'm still looking forward to it though as I'm intrigued at what they plan to do without a central character at the helm. Well named central character anyways.



Touhou Genso Wanderer - PS4, Vita

Been needing a bit of Roguelike in your diet? Touhou is finally releasing outside of Japan for the first time. Jump on it!




Anima: Gate of Memories - Beyond Fantasy Edition - PS4

I quite enjoyed Anima: Gate of Memories last summer so I'm happy to see it get a physical release for the PS4.




Troll and I - PS4, XB1

Troll and I looks interesting. It's been a while since I've seen a new single player "co-op" game so it definitely has my attention.




Wednesday March 21st

This Is the Police - PS4, XB1

"This Is the Police is a strategy/adventure game set in a city spiraling the drain. You'll come face to face with the ugly underbelly of Freeburg, taking the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd (portrayed by Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem).

Dive into a deep story of corruption, crime and intrigues. You are taking the role of gritty Police Chief Jack Boyd – you'll come face to face with the ugly underbelly of Freeburg, a city spiraling the drain. Will Jack see his retirement with a nice sum of money waiting to be spend or will he end up broken … or even worse?"




Friday March 24th

Mario Sports Superstars - 3DS

I guess this had to happen at some point. Kind of surprised that they didn't make it for the Switch for a living room couch versus though.




Zero Escape The Nonary Games - PS4, Vita, PC

All I know is that these games are in a league of their own. I've heard of many different kinds of gamers speak about them and they've all enjoyed the various entries. Zero Escape or 999 your thing? Here's your next one.




Monday March 27th

Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy - PC

I'm ashamed to say that Operation Abyss is something that I've completed the tutorial of and have not been back since and not for the lack of want. Nick reviewed it favorably back on the Vita and I'm happy to see that developers continue to port these over to the PC for all of those without a console that would love to try these out.

Tuesday March 28th

The new Baseball season is starting off and the newest game entries are coming out for your personal home running action!

RBI Baseball 2017 - PS4, XB1

MLB The Show 17 - PS4



Vikings: Wolves of Midgard - PS4, XB1, PC

Wolves of Midgard hit my radar a while back. Single Player Hack and Slash with couch coop based in a Nordic setting? I was sold.




Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 Remix - PS4

Annnnnnnnd here I thought that I would finally be sitting down and finishing my 2.5 Remix on the PS3 then they go and mash it all onto the PS4. Not that it's a bad thing for those that don't have it... at all... but how about we just release KH3 before the apocalypse please?




Has-Been Heroes - PS4, XB1, Switch, PC

This is a huge departure from Trine's Platforming. Being Frozenbyte though? I'm definitely looking into this one!




GOD WARS Future Past - PS4, Vita

With everything that I already want this month? This sits ontop of the pile as I've really been wanting to sit down to an SRPG for a while now. Not that much longer!




Darksiders: Warmastered Edition - Wii U

A little late to the party is the remastered edition of the first Darksiders which sees War voiced by the epic Liam O'Brien exploring the ruins of our world after inadvertently starting the Apocalypse.



Friday March 31st

Deformers - PS4, XB1, PC

Ready at Dawn... Ready at Dawn... rings a bell *googles it* WHAT!?!?! This is what they've done after The Order? Really? Looks awesome but I really wanted a new entry into The Order...
