Hotshot Racing + New This Week Game Releases (NTWIG) 7/8 – 7/14/2024

Before getting to this week’s new games, let’s look at a game in the Steam Summer Sale 2024 that’s under $5: Hotshot Racing:

Plays good on Steam Deck, the AI racing is difficult, this reminds me a bit of a cross between the Horizon Turbo series and Outrun. Digging it.

Decided to start putting up a non-new game to go with the new game list. May not be an every week thing, but here we are.

Now, It’s that time of the week again to check for noteworthy game releases for PC/Steam, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch via Metacritic. We also discuss these games live on the High Noon with Hollywood Polo stream at noon Tuesdays PST (GMT-8) here: including commentary from other PGM members, wishlist interest and more.

Interest level: 4/10

Wishlist: YES

Played an early version of this during one of those demo Steam events and it had some charm. I’m interested if the price is right. My guess, however, is it probably will be more than I want to spend at launch. Wishlisted already.

In this critically acclaimed TAITO classic, available on modern consoles for the first time, the now-transformed Bubby and Bobby embark on a mission to save their neighboring planets. But this time, instead of blowing bubbles, our favorite duo swings colorful parasols filled with magical powers.

Anger Foot, Once Human and Parasols: Bubble Bobble III are the new release games I have some interest in this week, but I added one I already own and like: Hotshot Racing here as an inexpensive game alternative for folks to check out. Would not recommend that at the regular price of $19.99, but at $1.99, it’s a no-brainer for racing game fans. Hurry, if interested, as this price ends on July 11, 2024 when the Steam Summer sale ends.
