It's February, which means the first Valentines Day of the decade is right around the corner. However, before everyone can love each other for one day of the year, we have new PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox One about to release and kick off the month. This week, players will watch Nazi zombie heads explode in slow motion, play soccer with pandas, race dirt bikes in a circle, and murder things as a killer and smiley robot named Tabby.
As always, if you want to get the lowdown on the rundown of every single game releasing this week across every single video platform in existence, you've clicked on the wrong link. However, if you simply want to know what new games are dropping this week that are worth checking out, then you're in the right saloon, because that's exactly what is below this needlessly wordy introduction. In addition to brand new releases, there's also a lil' round-up of notable ports towards the bottom of the article. Further, while remasters, remakes, and even expansions are included, minor DLC releases that give your horse shiny armor or four blinks and a head nod of content are not. And neither are early access releases. Lastly, while occasionally a Stadia or mobile game sneaks its way on here, the article is largely focused on PC and console games.
