Hold on to something sturdy, as it seems like this week is the start of the holiday season release game-nado (The third cousin to a Sharknado) and I'm only sure next week will be crazier, as well as the week after that, before we hit critical mass just before Christmas. That's how it has worked in previous years, anyway. Like last week, I expect this is merely scratching the surface of what eventually gets released tonight at 11:00 PM Eastern.

Here's forum threads for what's on our radar right now:

Be sure to check out what our community is saying about these games if you're interested in any of them, and stay tuned for gameplay videos as well as a massive listing of what does finally end up coming out later tonight.

  • Hector Baboso

    Tilt to Live 2!! My body is ready!

  • Squablo

    Good grief!!! This is gonna be an expensive evening. This is the best release day I've seen in quite some time. There are at least four games I'll be purchasing tonight!

  • cobbyco

    Wow, it feels like I've been waiting years for Oceanh-

    Oh, wait...

  • Lazer Kat

    Great week for premium games
    I hope I get wolf among us, and the plague inc update soon.

  • Stustaff

    TILT TO LIVE?!!!!!!!!!

  • Lazer Kat

    Oceanhorn - $9
    Epoch 2 - $6
    Stealth inc - $5
    Lone wolf - $5
    Chicken boy - $2
    The rivers of Alice - $5
    __________________
    Total for the week - $32
    And that's only the first half of what's sure to release.
    Maybe I should be grateful the Plague Inc update, and A wolf among us doesn't release this week.

    • Flare_TM

      I noticed but isn't it for the best in the long run to pay more and get better games?

      • shadax

        I've read this three times and still can not figure out what you're trying to say.

      • Flare_TM

        Pay more money
        =/=
        Get better quality games

      • Lazer Kat

        I never claimed it did equal better quality.
        But I'd rather pay money than d/l free ones.

      • Lazer Kat

        Me too

    • Echoen

      Ramen is yummy :D

  • Zentatsu

    No Freemium games yet, that's unusual. :))

    • DannyTheElite

      GT racing 2 by game loft is coming out on a worldwide release

  • metalmandave83

    I'll take Lone Wolf, King's League and Neon Shadow.

  • Zeillusion

    I seriously can't wait... Been feeling down ever since my wisdom teeth extraction. This will cheer me up! So many good releases can't wait.

  • speedyph

    WOW NO BALDURS GATE 2 ENHANCED EDITION IM SURPRISED DEY SAID DIS WEEK

    • Brown Cow

      Is the "th" key missing on your keyboard?

      • Zeldaniac

        It's missing on mine.

      • heresandypandy

        Same, I have to type t and h separately these days, it's awful.

      • Gfish

        What kind of keyboard do you have?!

    • Bytebrain

      This week on PC!
      It'll take a while for the game to be approved by Apple, and I'm not sure it's even submitted yet...

  • chamillion205

    Ok..... I will be getting tilt to live 2, oceanhorn of course, lone wolf (maybe), epoch 2...glad I get paid tonite!!!

  • Adsinjapan

    It's 1am on the 14th over here in Japan and the wait for Oceanhorn is killing me! I'll let everyone know as soon as things roll in.

  • Flare_TM

    RED HOT week!!!

  • Adsinjapan

    OCEANHORN just landed in the Japanese AppStore! It's downloading as I type. So excited! :D

  • Lomyr

    Darn... Okay, it's really time I upgraded my iPhone4.

  • macsmister

    I may as well not bother going to work tomorrow. FMH14 and Oceanhorn will consume me.

  • spike17spiegel

    Oceanhorn is going to be epic. This is the first iOS game I'm super excited for!

    • octopus

      poor you

  • Donny K76

    The sequel to Sunday Lawn by Donut Games is out! 90 levels, 99 cents and no IAP as usual. GC integration as well.

  • ste86uk

    Never mind the cost I don't know if I have the space!

    • Donny K76

      8 meg download ;)

    • mindseyes

      Tell me about it my 32gb is maxed on my phone and iPad mini!!!! I need like 256GB!!!!!

  • heresandypandy

    A lot of these games are "wait and see" for me. Oceanhorn is closest to an insta-buy but I'll see what people on here think of it first as Zelda games aren't really my thing... FM 2014 will only be worthwhile if they've actually got it closer to the PC version this time, the jump from 12 to 13 was basically just a data update... Lone Wolf I like the look of, but the battle system put me off a little when Brad and Jared did the TA Plays a while back, it seemed to take an age to win the fight they showed so hopefully they've balanced that... There's undoubtedly some A-list games here, but I'm happy to wait :)

  • murderface79

    Tilt To Live 2 not for iPhone 3GS?

    • Lazer Kat

      I don't think there's any of those left anyway

  • Sven Van de Perre

    Tilt ti Live 2 AND Oceanhorn? ... well, there goes productivity I guess.

  • fransoccer

    Well I guess it's time to go buy me some iTunes cards for tonight

  • jamiejap

    hope ocean horn is not such a disappointment as star command!

  • kioshi

    Buy ALL THE GAMES!

  • PNem

    Stellar Wars from Liv Games should be out this week also, per their FB page. (This is the follow-on title to Legendary Wars and Monster Wars)

  • Lyra

    OCEAN HORN

  • J0n072295

    So glad I got ahead of my school work....

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Matthew-White/1633850433 Matthew White

    I've got Stealth inc on my Vita, it's really good too. Pretty good week for releases.

  • rabidnz

    No games for me this week, too expensive!

  • crunc

    Tilt to Live 2 for me. I enjoyed the first one back then. I hope the new one has enough new to keep me hooked.

  • crunc

    Stealth Inc is pretty great, but I have that on Vita and am not sure how well it will play with touchscreen.

  • MrAsherkEsq

    Buy all the games. Support your devs.

  • Jacob007

    What a week!!

  • Lazer Kat

    I can't stop playing Chicken Boy,
    This may emerge as my surprising pick for GOTW.

  • demod1

    I am more excited about Ocean Horn than anything else tonight… But holy crap what a good lineup! Lonewolf, Epoch 2!!! My goodness

  • Gegoben

    Looks like a great for releases, but without a doubt, I am most excited for Oceanhorn! Ahhhhh, going to stay up for releases tonight!

  • Guest

    Hunter Island releases tonight as well. Another really good game to look forward to! And it's only $0.99! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAzaH2TzHoc&feature=youtu.be

    • Lazer Kat

      And the award for most obvious dev pimping their own game goes to ^guest

      • Chazz Roger

        Actually that was me that posted that, and it didn't show up at first, so I reposted and then it eventually did show up, so I deleted this one, and for some reason it left it there but changed the user name to guest....

      • Djacko

        thought hunter Island would be one of the more hyped games this week

  • Pete Osborne

    Plus Donut Games new launch Sunday Lawn Seasons, Hunter Island by the devs of Dragon Island Blue, Deemo by the Cytus devs and Mech Mice (which looks too gorgeous for me to care it's freemium). OreZom Trails Adventure and ShapeScape look pretty interesting too. I may explode tonight

  • mudads

    Tilt To Live 2!!! I are excite!!!
