Lastly, here’s the A Boy and His Blob trailer:

Note that the “A Boy and His Blob” game for PC/Mac/Linux, Xbox One, PS4 & PS Vita seems to be a 1080p HD 60FPS re-release of WayForward’s 2009 Wii title! Which was well-received due to its beautiful Studio Ghibli-esque art design that brings the game to life, although I would add that the two cutesy main characters pull that off by the mere fact this game has reserved one button on your controller purely as the HUG BUTTON! No joke. ^_^

What video games will you be playing this week? Any of these?
