Weird West Released

Since it was announced at the end of 2019, WolfEye Studios' Weird West has been regarded with both anticipation and skepticism. On one hand, a highly reactive systems-driven immersive sim from affable Arkane Studios co-founder Raf Colantonio is something we were all up for. On the other hand, it was an isometric action-RPG rather than first person as expected, with an unusual visual style and a reliance on procedural generation. However, esteemed Codexer Child of Malkav's beta impressions earlier this year were quite positive, and so we arrived at the game's launch date with an open mind. Here's its launch trailer, which is full of weird western characters doing weird western things.

Mainstream reviews of Weird West have been mixed. Most are fairly positive, but some reviewers couldn't get over the janky combat or just didn't find immersive sim hijinks interesting enough to carry the game. Here's the list:

Weird West is available on Steam for $40 and is also on Microsoft's Game Pass, marking the end of a fairly interesting first quarter for RPGs. Unfortunately, the game was pulled from GOG at the last minute (despite being available for preorder!) and won't be available there until the end of April.
