This Week in Games: Apr 3 – Apr 8


Welcome to another week in games. If you are in the mood for anything from VR pillow fort creators in Fort Awesome to playing Atari classics on your PS4 or Xbox One – let’s talk highlights so you can get to the Full List:

On the 4th patient PS4 owners who didn’t import last year’s Japanese release edition can enjoy the much delayed Persona 5 release (the 6th title in the series following the Assassins Creed school of numbering). Alternatively also on the 4th for Xbox One owners, Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising is out for all your zombie hoard DLC related needs.

Fans of Serious Sam and VR can rejoice with the second Serious Sam VR outing aptly named – Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter, for the Vive or Oculus Rift via Steam on the 5th.

On the 6th if you are hardcore Ghouls and Ghosts fan Shovel Knight: Spectre of Torment might let you scratch that itch on Steam.

Lastly on the 7th fans of the original Bulletstorm finally get a current gen release for PS4 and Xbox One systems, as well as the updated edition for PC.

Honourable Mention – If Persona 5 doesn’t have nearly enough baggy pants for your taste then the release of PaRappa the Rapper Remastered may hit the spot on PS4. It is available via the PlayStation Store on the 4th.
