This Week’s New Releases + Game News: August 15, 2016

vgl-pickThe Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is No Man’s Sky, a space exploration simulator for the PC and PS4.

Developed by Hello Games, an ultra-tiny developer from the United Kingdom, No Man’s Sky gives players a procedurally-generated playground with billions and billions of planets to play in. Exploring the universe and naming your discoveries is an important part of the game, as is discovering the secret that lies at the very center of the map. No Man’s Sky is one of those games that should appeal to everybody, and might even pull in patrons who just want to see what all the fuss is about.

New Release Round-Up

Warp Zoned’s Weekly Warp-Up
Earlier this week, Square Enix announced plans to bring Dragon Quest X to the NX in Japan. While we still don’t know any specifics about Nintendo’s next console, the game announcements are starting to pile up. So it only made sense to create The Big List of Nintendo NX Games. I know that this “Big List” technically only includes a few titles so far, but it’s a start.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, the newest Kickstart This! column took a look at Eliosi’s Hunt, an overhead shooter from Brazilian developer TDZ Games.

Looking for more news from this past week? You can find it after the break.
