One Punch Man, Bloodroots, and More


one punch man out this week

It’s the last week of February, and before the March flood drowns us in too many games to play, we have one last moment to enjoy our social lives and productivity. Sike! This week there’s a plethora of news games releasing on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch that are worthy — at the very least — taking a gander at. More specifically, this week players will play as a blood-thirsty protagonist named Mr. Wolf, pretend to understand what the heck is going on in the new One Punch Man game, run a hospital, revisit a few classics, and play one of the strangest looking games of the year.

As always, if you’re looking for a complete rundown of every single game releasing this week on every single video game platform in existence, you’re in the wrong saloon. Around these parts we don’t have time for that. What we do have is the lowdown on every salient new video game release this week. In addition to the hottest debut releases, ports, remasters, and remakes are included as well. However, we draw the line at early access releases. Meanwhile, meaty DLC and expansions are also included, but minor DLC releases that give you two blinks of content are not. Lastly, while the occasional Google Stadia or mobile game sneak their way on here, this article is largely focused on traditional console and PC games.

NOTE: Games are ordered in significance, and significance is determined by me, which means there’s little significance to the ordering.

RELEASE OF THE WEEK: BLOODROOTS

PITCH: “Betrayed and left for dead, Mr. Wolf is hell-bent on finding his killer and enacting revenge—alone, and vastly outnumbered. Thankfully for Mr. Wolf, the world is your weapon in Bloodroots, a relentless action game that unfolds across the sprawling Weird West. You’ll choreograph spectacular, ultra-violent combos by making use of everything around you, from hatchets, to ladders, to… carrots? It’s improvise or die, as Mr. Wolf fights his way to the center of the mystery: why was he betrayed?”
