This week’s new releases favor the PC over other consoles with a number of new titles bringing together both the old (3D Thunder Blade) and new (GalCiv III). Fans of the 4X strategy genre will be pleased to know that Galactic Civilizations III will finally arrive on PC this Thursday over nine years after the release of the second title in the series. Final Fantasy X and X-2 will get another shot at the HD Remaster treatment with the release on PS4, bringing new filters as well as the original soundtrack (with cross-save support from the PS3/PSV versions). Axiom Verge will also arrive on Steam this week, giving Thomas Happ’s Metroid-inspired love letter a new audience on PC.
