This Week in Games: Jul 17 – Jul 22


Nintendo Switch and PSVR owners have a good week this week with some long awaited titles finally making their way to release! But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Wednesday SUPERHOT finally makes it’s way to the PS4. This previously Steam only title has to be on your must buy list this week not only being out for the PS4 but for PSVR as well. Why is this game so good? Imagine someone made a John Woo action sequence simulator where you play the hero… that is what SUPERHOT is.

Nintendo Switch Owners and lovers of Splatoon are rewarded on Friday with Splatoon 2 hitting stores. You might have played the original, or even spent some time on the new game through one of the weekend trials Nintendo have had for the lead-up, either way if you have a Nintendo Switch you really need to own this Paintball/FPS title when it comes out this week.

Saturday, a Xbox One and a Fortnite pre-order will get you this 4 player base building online co-op FPS. What is Fortnite? The best way we could describe it is if someone took the engineer parts of Team Fortress and crossed it with Minecraft. We caught the trailer a few weeks ago and thought it looked pretty funky, so if you pre-ordered and have an Xbox One you can get your hands on it on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: On Tuesday the gorgeous Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles hits the PlayStation store. It’s hard to explain what we like so much about this game made by Australian Developer Prideful Sloth but it definitely brings some Zelda vibes to the PS4 and Steam when it hits this week.

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
