Steam High Five: March 15, 2019 Edition

With St. Patrick’s day just around the corner, I feel obligated to remind you: getting pinched can hurt. You can wear green to try and stave off the hordes of pinching hooligans while eating corned-beef and spurring conversations of religious philosophy based on shamrocks, or you can look for the rare nuggets of gold at the end of the rainbow of video games that shows no sign of ending. For this weeks picks we have an open-world western MMO, an Asian themed, dramatic, top-down adventure, a 3D sidescrolling shooter, an adorable multiplayer farm shoot’em up that lets you grow guns, and an amusing treasure hunting RPG. Don’t forget to peruse the VR titles! If you can’t find a few golden moments in all of that, come back next week and we’ll try again!
