Someone set up us the bomb.

So how do we celebrate this week of national birthdays?

With not a lot, as it turns out. The biggest ones are the much-hyped Stranger Things season 3 isometric action game, with maybe, hopefully, the app from the publisher of Stranger Things along for the ride. There's also a few takes on personal relationships between Clannad, Dream Daddy, and the now-confirmed What Remains of Edith Finch.
