Awesome week. Both Kamiko and the Neo Geo game look good, too.

But why does Tumbleseed come out on a Tuesday?

@Anand

Coincides with release on other platforms? I'm not sure what else it's coming out on... Steam?

@VofEscaflowne
Oh. PS4 and Xbone games come out on Tuesday. Maybe that's it.

That game seems really unappealing, and it seems like it should've had tilt control, but it's a roguelike, and everyone says it's fun. We'll see!

@Anand

Yeah I feel similar about it too. Maybe it's just that the gameplay videos/trailers are played by awful people It just doesn't seem terribly exciting but like you say, those that have played it really seem to enjoy it a ton.

By the way, every Roguelike (even Rogue) needs to hit the Switch. They're so perfect for killing a bit (or a lot!) of time here and there.

This'll make two. Let's keep 'em coming!

(Stuff like XCom and Civilization would be great, too. Also, RPGs, but who cares...)

Tumbleseed is rad, I obtained an early code for it and have been playing it a ton. You'll love it @Anand.

Is Mario Kart coming out tonight at midnight or tomorrow sometime?
