With E3 behind us, it's time to get back to playing games that are actually out now. And this week we're being treated to the delightfully unexpected New Super Luigi U. Mario's just a boring old plumber, so it's no surprise that Nintendo are finally realising what we've all known for years: it's better with Luigi.
As well as New Super Luigi U, we're getting the bizarre action physics game, Magrunner; the D&D double pack, Chronicles of Mystaraarrives; the first three Jak & Daxter games get squashed into one collection; and quirky meta-RPG Knights of Pen & Paper + 1 drops.
What's floating your boat this week?

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/underhero-videogame#/extatix Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.absolutfreak Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.Nathan D *playing an old ps1 game* "START and SELECT don't bring the menu up?! WELL WHAT THE FU-oh, it's Triangle..."TheDefenestrator If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)Shinta MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.RadicalYoseph The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.Torchman *looks at Amazon preorder* This one's for you Chib'CJ Andriessen Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!OverlordZetta In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.gajknight I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.OverlordZetta [img]https://i.imgur.com/GGuxv05.png[/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it. StriderHoang My heart will always be yours, Papyrus #2spoopy4meGoofierBrute I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.Pixie The Fairy It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.Cannibal Steven "You gave the Lost Soul a big smile, like you remember she likes to do... For some reason she sort of wants to smile back..."
I'm not crying. Not one bit.ChrisHannard Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?
