Someone, somewhere, is going to submit this week's downloads as a GOTY list.

Last week's releases were, to quote one of the great newscasters of the 31st century, "belligerent and numerous". This week doesn't have the sidebar bursting release count, but there's an awful lot of qualifiers for the old NBC rerun marketing trick this week. We'll probably lose a few staff to the 100+ hour farm sim Stardew Valley, which releases under the harvest moon. For those who prefer their RPGs a bit more fantastic, Culdcept Revolt and Bowser's Minions (plus Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga remake) are rocking a heavy retail lineup on 3DS. There's also Axiom Verge, a game we have a bit of history with.

Keeping the run of former GOTY candidates going, I had Tumblestone on my list for last year on Wii U and the price is right for it. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a twisted co-op adventure, while even the archive title for the week (Metal Slug X) has received raves in its releases on other platformers. (Review corner: Yours truly on Culdcept, Neal on Lovers, Casey talks Tumblestone, then follows up with Mario & Luigi.)

The international front is also quieter, though Japan does have the odd exclusive of the week with Koi DX.
