We were pleasantly surprised by just how many games were released last week, given that Infinity Blade III, Angry Birds Star Wars II, iOS 7 and new iPhones all launched last week as well. That’s a heck of a lot of big news items that could potentially steal the thunder from any game’s launch. However, it goes beyond that, because after Wednesday night games just kept on releasing. Rather than being a light launch week with all the goings on, it turned out to be one of the biggest release weeks in recent memory. Crazy. Anyway, here’s yet another Out Now post rounding up the games that came later in the week or otherwise slipped through the cracks. Don’t be confused: it’s not Wednesday! We’ll have another release list like we normally do this coming Wednesday, but in the meantime feel free to check out the games that might have snuck past you during what was a crazy week last week.

YOU DON’T KNOW JACK Party
That’s right, “the greatest quiz-show game ever made” according to The Onion’s A.V. Club can now be played as it was meant to be played: with friends, on your couch, with several pizzas, and beverages scattered about, and a rabbit that snuck in, and some work-release prisoners in the audience, with soothing jazz playing in the background, and the scent of vanilla coriander cinnamon candles in the air, while everyone wears those inflatable sumo wrestler costumes. Or… however you like to party. That’s just a suggestion.
