This Week in Games: Oct 1 – 6


This week destroy friendships with the latest Mario Party, Mega Man returns plus go back to your Assassin roots and kick people off cliffs yelling THIS. IS. SPARTA. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with platforming awesomeness is Mega Man 11. Not just limited to Nintendo you can pick up the latest instalment on both the XBox One (with Enhanced support) or the PlayStation 4. Still retaining that platformer style the graphics have been upgraded with new 3D character models which really give a new look to a familiar title when you get it on Tuesday (or Wednesday via Steam).

Also on Tuesday the biggest title this week comes to PlayStation 4 and XBox One (with the Steam release later in the week on Friday) with the next chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise – Odyssey. Move from Ancient Eygpt to Ancient Greek as you get to choose your antagonist to play through with from the start in either Alexios or Kassandra. Following the new level and skill system of AC: Origins if you haven’t returned to the AC world in a while this is a good place to do it.

Do you have too many friends? On Friday you can fix that with the friendship-destroying Nintendo favourite out for the first time on the Switch, Super Mario Party. Taking advantage of the new control and playstyles that the Switch offers with new play modes supporting up to 2 Nintendo Switch systems the more “board game” style new addition has 80 mini-games for your soon to be bitter rivalries.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes out for PSVR owners who may have enjoyed the free Robot Rescue title will be happy to know the best demo is now a full-fledged game. Titled Astro Bot Rescue Mission VR and coming out on Wednesday we are looking forward to a little more 3rd person VR platforming to show off that VR is not just for FPS games and experiences.

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
