This Week in Games: Nov 6 – 11


More Horizon Zero Dawn gameplay, Doom comes to the Switch and the Xbox One X is here to fill that hole in your heart. But before we get into the full list, here is your highlights:

First up on Tuesday the Xbox One X (X.B.O.X. isn’t that cool?) comes to town launching this week. This new powerhouse of the Xbox family is smaller and more powerful their it’s predecessors without forcing you to exchange your entire back catalogue to upgrade. As soon as we know a date for Bioware’s Anthem we know we will be picking up one of these to go with it.

While DLC isn’t usually a highlight for us the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds is definitely an exception to the rule. For anyone looking for an excuse to go back to Aloy’s world (or maybe never left) grab the DLC for PlayStation 4 also on Tuesday.

Lastly for Tuesday, soon as you emerge from Mario Odyssey pickup Sonic Forces as it hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch on Tuesday (and Steam on Wednesday). We are loving the look of this but are probably going to love those old school 2D levels the most.

For PlayStation and maybe your shiny new Xbox One X, the Fast and the Furious edition of Need for Speed comes to town on Thursday with Need for Speed Payback. Overuse of the word family and Vin Diesel not included.

And on Friday Superflight is a procedural generated Flight Suit simulator having you traverse never-ending beautiful vistas. Created by 3 students this game is only $3 USD so it could replace the void that SkiFree left in your heart.

Honourable Mention: There is a ton of games out for the Switch later this week but we can’t help but call out DOOM is coming to the Switch on Friday. The original game (and basis for a motion picture starring The Rock) will come back to haunt your dreams or at least your commute to work as you grab it for your portable.

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
