Welcome to another one of our roundups of all the new games of the past week, and what a strange week it’s been. Apple introduced the ability to pre-order games in the App Store, and the first batch of games was a handful of high-profile ports and highly-anticipated mobile exclusives. We’re seeing the first wave of pre-order games going live tonight with the arrival of Life is Strange and Gorogoa. Then out of nowhere FEZ, which has been supposedly coming to mobile for years now, popped up out of nowhere this morning. THEN, later on today Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty simialrly arrived out of thin air and is the 2014 remake of the original Oddworld. AND we’ve still got Playdead’s Inside coming at some point in the next day or so. It’s madness, I tell you! So check out the full list of games below and let us know which ones you’ll be picking up if your wallet can handle it.
