This Week in Games: Apr 24 – Apr 29


This week is a mixed bag of FPS, VR, nightmare inducing titles and a switch game amongst other awesome game releases.

Right after Anzac Day on the 26th you can stay low in the third instalment of the series with Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 for fans of sniper based games. Also this week the Escape of Lydia DLC is available on selected platforms.

For the VR fans also on the 26th, argueably the best PSVR game comes to steam with Batman: Arkham VR to immerses you in the Dark Knight’s Universe and redefines what it means to be the Batman.

On the 28th for almost all platforms (sorry Switch) you can Immerse yourself in Little Nightmares, a dark whimsical tale that will confront you with your childhood fears. Exploring the most disturbing dollhouse to escape is just the thing to cure you of that sleeping habit.

Also on the 28th to make it up to Switch owners you can grab Puyo Puyo Tetris which might have skipped your attention. It offers not only 2 player but 4 player puzzle modes and you check it out with a free demo before buying it on the 28th on the Nintendo eShop.

Honourable Mention – While not the first release but finally you will be able to play Mario Kart 8 on your new and shiny Switch. Look forward to local tournaments on your train ride to work in the morning with all the other Switch owners. Mario Kart 8 hits on the 28th.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
