It’s only the second week of August and already we’re in the thick of the fall release cycle—LawBreakers, Hellblade, Rez, Telltale’s Batman, and a bunch of other games launched this week. Too many games for any one person.
Wait, did I say Rez? Indeed I did. That news, plus Valve’s (sigh) collectible card game, Gearbox’s new project, a glimpse of Overwatch’s new deathmatch modes, Tempest 4000, and more. This is gaming news for August 7 through 11.
Not dead yet
For Honor seems to have caught Battleborn disease—by which I mean “Hemorrhaging players much faster than you thought.” Maybe it’s the fault of balance issues, maybe the finally-being-fixed reliance on P2P connections, maybe just the game getting stale. Hard to tell.
