This Week in Games: Apr 17 – Apr 22


You might think with a shorter week there is less in games, but that just means we have more releases crammed into the week! From reality C-137 to classic Lucasarts there is a ton of games out this week but first, here are your highlights:

Kicking off the week for Call of Duty fans Infinite Warfare drops it’s second DLC with Continuum out for Playstation 4 on the 18th.

Also on the 18th, episode one of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Adventures drops for the PS4 with it being available on Steam the following day. With 5 episodes total and a discount for preordering, we are strongly considering ordering ahead given how strong Telltale’s Batman was (plus GoTG2 being out next week doesn’t hurt).

On the 19th if you ever owned a NES or Gameboy and think your life might be like a hurricane you will be pleased to know the Disney Afternoon Collection is available on Steam and XBox One. The collection includes original versions of the Chip’n’Dale, Ducktales, Darkwing Duck and Talespin games, so easily days of 80s video game level frustration to be had.

Finally on the 21st Wubadubalublub because Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is out on Steam for all VR platforms (except PSVR of course). Brought to us by the same group as Job Simulator and the super weird Accounting, we are hoping for a slightly longer experience.

Honourable Mention – If you are a fan of classic LucasArts SCUMM adventures (or even if you are not) Full Throttle: Remastered is out on PS4, PS Vita and Steam on the 18th. One of the last games of that era and style if you love Monkey Island or Day of the Tentacle then you need this in your life.

Did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments!
