There will be a test at the end, by the way.

OK, so Dragon Marked for Death comes out this week, but what's the deal with it?

Let's see... there's two versions of the game coming out Thursday. Of the four playable characters, two are playable in the different versions and the other two can be bought as DLC. There's a physical edition coming March 26, and that has all four in it. Clear?

As mud. What else do we have?

Wargroove got announced last week unexpectedly, and that rad puzzle game Downwell is coming from Devolver. You might be familiar with Mages of Mystralta from Dan Adelman's involvement in the PR cycle. And for some reason, THQ is putting out Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy in HD when we really just want them to put out Saints Row The Third.

That's probably not the stupidest thing coming out this week.

Oh no, there's plenty of things I wanted to slap this week. Special dispensation to Japan, who have a game coming out in the same series as noted Banned in Boston game Monster Monpiece. At least they get a couple of follow-ups to Steins;Gate, Fate/Extella Link, and the latest Atelier game.

I really hope Wargroove is good.

Everyone who hasn't played it already should check out Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. It will scratch a little bit of that 3D Zelda itch.

Downwell?  Is that a port of the mobile game?  I've heard good things on it, but imagine you'd want to play in a vertical orientation to have the best usage of the screen real estate.

Downwell is a mobile port, yes. And it'll go great with my FlipGrip.
