If you can find enough warm bodies to play Chasing Aurora with you, that's something I would recommend doing. The multiplayer action title will be out in time for the Wii U's launch on November 18 via the Nintendo eShop.

At $14.99, the game is a bit steeper in price than what I was expecting. It's made up of a time-based single-player component and three multiplayer modes which play off of classic children's games, so mileage will probably vary quite a bit depending on what type of players you and your friends are.

For those curious, footage of the single-player and one of the modes, Freeze Tag, can be found below. Jonathan Holmes says Chasing Aurora reminds him of the original NiGHTS, so perhaps that will pique your interest.

Meaty turn-based RPG Pier Solar HD hits Wii U in November

WaterMelon's homebrew project Pier Solar and the Great Architects pushed the Sega Genesis to its limits as a new release in 2010 (!) which I thought was courageous, at the time. Still do. The game shipped on an actual cartrid...more

Return of the Obra Dinn has a playable demo

Did I ever tell you that as a child I was fascinated with the idea of ghost ships? Well, I was -- and I guess you could say that I still am in one way or another. I grew up reading about the accounts of mysterious vessels lik...more

First else Heart.Break() trailer reminds me it exists

Everyone remembers else Heart.Break(), right? Of course you do, because it was on my "Top 30 indies to look out for in 2013" list! There was very little information on the game at that point, and apparently I thought it woul...more
