Spotlight Sunday - Week 41 - 2015

Spotlight Sunday is a way for Choicest Games to feature PC games that are scheduled for release on the following week - games that we consider worthwhile checking out.

This week (5th October to the 11th October 2015) there are three games I think are worth checking out; two are based on existing franchises and one is a new retro-style, cyberpunk game:

Read Only Memories

  • Release Date: 06/10/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order, Humble - $10 USD, - $14.99 USD
A retro future cyberpunk adventure set in a near future San Francisco. The game is inspired by games of the late 1980s and early 1990s such as Snatcher and Gabriel Knight which isn't a bad thing.

I'm guessing the game's price will be about $15 USD on Steam considering it's that price on

Transformers: Devastation

  • Release Date: 06/10/2015
  • Availability: Steam - $49.99 USD, ozgameshop - $35.99 + shipping

A game featuring the original Transformers? You mean Bumblebee before he became a Camaro and when he was still a Volkswagen Beetle? Yep, this is the Transformers you probably grew up on in the 80s in the form of a brawler where you're able to play as five of the Autobots including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Sideswipe, Wheeljack and Grimlock ("ME GRIMLOCK!"). Not only do you get to fight with some of the iconic Autobots but you get to fight iconic villains of the series too including Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave and, of course, Devastator. If that weren't enough, many of the original voice actors have reprised their roles such as Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime), Dan Gilvezan (Bumblebee) and Frank Welker (Megatron and Soundwave),

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth - Rising Tide

While there's a lot of disappointed Civ and Alpha Centauri fans after playing Civilization: Beyond Earth (which I didn't think was that bad), any that are still hanging around for more content will be happy to know that Rising Tide will be released soon as an expansion. Rising Tide introduces four new factions, floating cities, dynamic leader traits, improved diplomacy, enhanced artifact options, hybrid affinities and new biomes.

So are you interested or excited about any PC games being released next week? Which games are you looking forward to?
