Blue Reflection looks so good. Do we have confirmation of an NZ release? It's R18 in Australia and doesn't have a local rating as far as I can see :(

Fifa releases on the 26th if you get the Ronaldo Edition.

But as for me, nothing this week. At least I can finish one of the many games I've got going. Maybe I'll finally finish vampire the masquerade bloodlines, or mass effect Andromeda.

I'm very interested in seeing how good Total War: Warhammer 2 is. I really enjoyed the first and hope this is even better. Apart from that I wonder how well Blue Reflection is going to do, I'm sure I'll get it someday but I want to see a bit more of it first.

Doesn't look like Ruiner is getting an NZ release, on PS4 anyway. Lame, need to get it off the US Store.
