New releases: You had me at isometric cyberpunk fantasy

Jul 23 // Fraser Brown

Plus, Teleglitch, Runescape 3, and silly blue people

New releases is a day late this week, as my ISP got so excited by all of these games coming out that they decided to screw with my connection. Well, that's what I pay them for. This week's actually a bit quiet, with only a couple of standouts. Shadowrun Returns finally arrives after a short delay, and it all sounds a bit too good to be true. Like someone dug up my youth and pumped it full of electricity. An arcane cyberpunk tactical RPG? I'm drooling.

Also launching this week, we have Teleglitch: Die More Edition, an upgraded version of the delightfully cruel sci-fi roguelike; Runescape 3, which launched today, and seems like a substantial improvement over its forebearer; and The Smurfs 2, because bad sequels of bad films need bad games too. 

And although New releases only covers US launches, Pikmin 3 arrives in blightly this week, and that's definitely something I'll be celebrating.
