Trouble Witches Title Shot

The upcoming week seems like a bust, with few games coming out and none that have been marketed or publicized too heavily. However, there are still some games coming out that you might have been on the lookout for already, such as Darkspore. It seems that downloadable games are going to take the spotlight this week, with some platforming action in Outland and flying witches in Trouble Witches Neo!. If these don’t interest you, take this as a chance to give your wallet or credit card a break!
