All the games!
Very busy release week. I got Battle Chasers: Nightwar on Switch (is it just me that thinks it’s weird that it’s half-off on other platforms the week it comes out on Switch?) Little Witch Academia for review, and i’ll probably double-dip on Banner Saga on Switch as well (maybe I’ll play it this time…maybe). Phew.
