The long-awaited return of the South Park RPG is finally here. A JRPG hits the Nintendo platforms. An old-school PC RPG comes to the PS4. And a dark horse RPG tries to pick up the tarnished sci-fi role playing mantle on all modern platforms.

The Switch continues to get a bunch of indie game ports as it replaces the Vita as the portable porting solution.

Aaaaand, another 10 pages of stuff coming out on Steam.

    I've spent way too much the last few weeks, so nothing for me.

    I'm super curious to see how Elex turns out. I really enjoyed The Technomancer despite it's flaws, and this seems like it could be another diamond in the rough.

    I have Cities: Skylines, so I guess I'll have to put Cities: Skylines - Green Cities DLC on the wishlist, but since I just got Field of Glory II and I've just pre-ordered on AC: Origins for next week, it will be nada for me this week.

    The Jackbox Party Pack 4 My family has a lot of fun with these games (though I still don't understand why they won't create a wrapper so you can drop in and out of any of them).

    I'll be watching the South Park reviews getting South Park, for sure, and I'd be willing to see what Rogue Trooper Redux has to offer if the reviews are good, but I'm not counting on that.

    I pre-ordered:
    GT Sport
    South Park
    Etrian Odyssey V

    I am waiting to see the reviews on:
    Fire Emblem Warriors- Fire Emblem characters good. Set in a Warriors game format bad. Seriously, the Warriors games all play the same.
    Rogue Trooper Redux- I know it's a remake of an old game that I know nothing about but it look intriguing.
    Realms of Arkania- Holy shit, it's a remake of the old PC game. Looks great but strangely there is almost no info on it, so I am skeptical.

    Does anyone have Cities: Skylines on PS4 and can comment on how it plays? I am curious as to how it controls since it really is more of a PC mouse kind of game.

    This RoA: Blade of Destiny came out on Steam quite some time ago. I think most complaints about it were from people expecting a brand new game and not a remaster, so fans of the old one should be happy I'd think:

    They had a much more recent one called Realms of Arcania: Star Trail that apparently came out back in August and has good reviews:

    I am fine with a remake as opposed to a new game. The original PC game was great but had a really high difficulty level. I'll probably take a chance and get it this week on PS4.

    I picked up GT Sport yesterday. So I started that and I am also playing Cuphead on my Xbox. Keeping busy right now.

    I wasn't planning on buying anything this week, but Elex won me over with its interesting setting. I'll get Fire Emblem Warriors, South Park, Dungeons 3, Chaos;Child, Life Is Strange, and Etrian Odyssey V someday.

    Be sure to let us know what you think after dive into Elex! If I had more time and free money right now (or the other way around) I'd definitely be playing it as well.
