This week is what we like to call… “The Week Before Mass Effect.” Are there any huge AAA titles? Not really, but we can all use a break after Horizon, Zelda, and Wildlands in a row. This week still has its fair share of quality looking games. So let’s get to it. Here are the New Game Releases for March 13th to March 18th 2017. The list ain’t exhaustive, as PC has TONS more via Steam. But here’s what we think is worth watching this week.
