This Week in Games: May 22 – May 27


Hope you have caught up on all your gaming from last week because this week is Superhot in more ways than one. But before we get into the full list, here are your highlights:

Kicking off our week fairly late on Thursday with first-person fighter/shooter/awesomeness of Superhot finally hitting VR via Steam. If you have never heard of Superhot before now, trust us. It was the reason VR was made.

Friday you can get your hands on Get Even has it releases across all almost platforms when it’s released for Playstation 4, XBox One and through Steam.

Also on Friday, you can get your hands on the cool looking platformer RiME. It comes out on Playstation 4 and XBox One with it being released through Steam the very next day.

One more thing to fit into your busy Friday is Street Fighter II being released on Switch! Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is released on Friday, so now you will be making completely different weird sounds while sitting on the train.

And rounding out your weekend are two titles to look for. First, adding to the roster of Xbox Play Anywhere titles, is Everspace 1.0 Launch which gives us more than a little bit of an Eve Online vibe.

Or, if you feel like you are spending way too much time on your computer and need to do something different you can grab Emily is Away Too on Steam. It a story based game with multiple narrative paths as you control the online life of a girl named Emily.

Honourable Mention – Not actually a release but again for Nintendo Switch owners on Saturday and Sunday there will be a Global Testpunch event for ARMS. Much like the Global Splatoon Test, this event will let you get a taste of the upcoming ARMS for free, during limited times.

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
