From a sound based Stealth games that uses your microphone to roaming the deserted halls of the Penrose Hotel, we hope you brought a change of pants to play some new games this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

This week we have to start with Stifled out on Steam for being the first sound based stealth game we have encountered. Using your microphone as a form of echolocation (like Daredevil) it is the only way to see, and how your enemies hear you too. Play with your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift  (or don’t because it’s optional) on Tuesday.

Wednesday brings something for lovers of mystery/puzzle games and creepy robots as you awake at the Penrose hotel. This FPS puzzle game set in the near future will have you roaming the halls of The Penrose which gives us vibes of the Timberline Lodge. It’s out on PlayStation 4 on Tuesday and for XBox One/Steam on Saturday.

If you enjoyed Warhammer: End Times then this Thursday you can pickup the sequel Warhammer: Vermintide 2 as it drops for XBox One. This continuation of the first acclaimed game looks gorgeous as it supports XBox One enhanced for 4K on top of 4-player online co-op.

On Saturday combine 16 bit side scrolling beat ’em ups with Anime and you get Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge. While the fate of humanity has long since been decided the evil precence has returned and only you, the adopted son of the last remaining master of an ancient art, can stop it.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes out to Bomber Crew out on XBox this Wednesday. This game reminds us a little of the excellent FTL, but instead managing a crew of a WW2 bomber but with the added risk of perma-death.

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
