This Week in Games: Jan 7 – 12


It’s January and while you can pick up some great games via the January sales (we are talking about you Assassin’s Creed Origins on the PS Store) you hunger for some new games for those consoles you picked up over Christmas. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights to start your year:

On Tuesday the Devolve Digital online multiplayer combat game jumps from Steam to XBox One for you to wander the forsaken lands like a roaming Samurai as you duel who crosses your path. Absolver lets you learn new combat skills, acquire armour and more to customise your character as you fight 1 on 1 or 3 on 3 duels.

Haven’t touched your Wii-U since you got your Nintendo Switch but still got some levels of Super Mario Bros U to finish? On Friday the Wii-U title jumps to the Switch with a deluxe edition which adds a harder “Super Luigi U” game mode for you to start all over again.

Honourable Mention: And our first honourable mention for 2019 goes to the Steam Point and Click Adventure – Awake. Not as long as your traditional SCUMM adventure’s with it being able to be completed in a single sitting, this overhauled version of the 2016 game ticks all the right boxes in our Sierra loving hearts.

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
