Spotlight Sunday - Week 9 - 2016

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 (29th February to the 6th March 2016) there are a couple of interesting Early Access games being released on Steam such as The Sentient and The Last Days of Old Earth, but as I'm keeping the tradition of only featuring non-Early Access games, there's three I think are worth considering coming up next week:

Deponia Doomsday

  • Release Date: 02/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
Now this one came out of nowhere, at least to me. The Deponia franchise is a well known series of point 'n' click adventure games which I have still not got around to playing (despite owning the first three games) but there's a good chance this one will be as good as its predecessors with Daedalic Entertainment at the helm.

Tank Battle: 1944

  • Release Date: 02/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order but likely to be $14.99 USD
I usually avoid hex-based war games since they're usually too complicated for my little mind to comprehend (well, except for Civ), but I was drawn to Tank Battle: 1944 for some reason. Maybe because I played Valkyria Chronicles recently? Anyway, it looks interesting but be mindful that a previous effort by HexWar called Russian Front rated poorly on Steam - so hopefully they've ironed out some of the issues that plagued their previous attempt.

Sunrider: Liberation Day

  • Release Date: 05/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
One thing the developer recommends you do is to try out the free-to-play Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius if you're unsure of whether to get this game; incidentally, Mask of Arcadius is another game on my wishlist that I haven't got around to playing yet! Both games seem to involve typical Japanese visual novel tropes coupled with turn-based strategy segments involving mechs, which sounds a-okay in my books!

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