This Week in Games: Jun 19 – Jun 24


E3 has been and gone, and while there are plenty of big titles coming out let’s just look at what is coming out first this week. Before we get to the full list, here are your highlights.

Tuesday is all about old school top-down shooter action with a choice between the next instalment in the Serious Sam saga on Steam or Nex Machina on PS4 and Steam.

On Wednesday the Steam title Dead by Daylight hits Xbox One (with the special edition available at retail for Xbox and PlayStation 4 the next day). This multiplayer game has a new take on the hunter/prey multiplayer with you either being part of a group of survivors aiming to escape or the murderous nutjob trying to hunt them down.

Saturday sees Double Fine’s Broken Age finally coming to the Xbox! Do we really need to say more about this 2014 title that comes from the same creator as Day of the Tentacle?

Also on Saturday if you have a 3DS (or bought a 2DSXL last week) Ever Oasis is a new IP made by the same team behind the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It is available at Retail but is also available for preorder via the Nintendo eShop for 10% off for 30 Gold Points (between June 16th and July 1st).

Honourable Mention: Chess Ultra has been described as ‘the most breathtaking chess game ever made’ and you can check it out this week when it hits on Steam for VR + PS4 and PSVR on Wednesday or Xbox One on Saturday. Sure to be a win for anyone who doesn’t like the idea of hanging out in parks and asking people if they want to have a game.

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
