This Week in Games: Nov 5 – 10


A Sierra classic, RPGs, a throwback to VHS board gaming, Barcoded killers and Nineteenth-century Russian folk songs are just some of the games you have to look forward to this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Fans of old-school VHS games like the Cryptkeeper will be interested in the Shapeshifting Detective out this Tuesday for PlayStation 4 & Steam and Wednesday on XBox One. Featuring over 1600 HD videoes the game puts you as the Shapeshifting Detective attempting to solve a murder and stop another with each playthrough changing the potential killer.

Already out for Steam the Action RPG Moonlighter is coming to PlayStation 4 and Switch this Friday. We previously called this Shopkeeper turned adventurer top-down action title when it came out on Steam but games like this is what the Switch was made for. If you have killed your SNES copy of Legend of Zelda from too many playthroughs and own a Switch then definitely get this one.

Friday is the return of our favourite bald-headed barcoded killer with Hitman 2 on XBox One, PlayStation 4 and PC Retail/Steam. While not out until the weekend, if you are excited for the next instalment of this next-gen refresh you might want to consider preordering before Friday to get immediate access to the first 2 expansions and the brand new first for this series – co-op play.

And lastly for Friday it’s Tetris, not the original but the updated Tetris Effect. Releasing on Friday this update to the classic game offers new game modes so you can clear not just 4 row but go for the decahexatrix which might be easier thanks to including a low latency VR mode (at least that is how the World Tetris Champion did it)

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the return of the 80’s adventure game icon, Leisure Suit Larry. Our favourite loser returns on Steam this Thursday after a long hiatus one of the original Sierra franchises is getting an update to poke fun at the age of dating apps and paid DLC (don’t worry there is no DLC here). Now about that Space Quest update…

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
