This Week in Games: Jun 12 – Jun 17


It’s E3 week! And just because there is a lot of new games being announced to come out later this year (and next) doesn’t mean you can’t find something to play this week! Before we get into the full list, here are your highlights.

Monday through Wednesday this week is dominated by E3. While there is still plenty we know about we are expecting to see some same day announcement drops this week (especially from Microsoft). Make sure you stay tuned for our E3 Recaps to know what is happening this week in games as it breaks!

With the E3 major briefs are all done by Thursday, we get new hardware in the form of the Nintendos 2DS XL. If you are a Nintendo Fan then you probably don’t need us to tell you as you have already pre-ordered one.

And on Friday ARMS for the Nintendo Switch is released. We were on the fence about this when it was first announced but we haven’t heard of anyone who hasn’t had an early hands on and didn’t love it.

Honourable Mention – There is a LOT of goodness on Steam this week taking advantage of E3 but this week, we want to draw attention to 21 Days. This retro style adventure game has you take on the life of a Syrian refugee. It may look light and fun but it takes on some deep stuff.

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
