Despite yesterday being a fairly robust night of new game releases, it was also one with a few quirks. Extreme Bike Trip and Clumsy Ninja appeared to have been merely soft-launches, which was disappointing, and Tiny Death Star took its sweet time finally launching worldwide, though it eventually did hit. Football Heroes, which we noted was set to hit at midnight, also decided to take a little longer than expected. Amongst all this was a smattering of more new games that slid under the radar, so with that here's a brief list of some new games released this week that you might have missed.

    I can honestly say that Pathogen is my favorite game. I play it probably half and hour or more every day. It's sort of like Othello, sort of like Go. In stead of just black or white, there are different levels - A, B and C cells and bricks (I don't know what they're called). When a tile is bricked, it's permanently yours. When it's any other level, it can be stolen by the other players. There is a surprising amount of strategy in building up strongholds. It's also very important to watch the other players assets. You have to have an available powers (that take several turns to refresh) in order to convert a Type C cell into a brick. If your opponent has used up his "virus" (which destroys all contiguous cells of a single type despite their color - e.g., all the adjoining B cells, no matter whose they are) or the brickifying power - you can take advantage of this weakness to swoop in and destroy and conquer. Great game. LOVE IT.
