This Week in Games: Jan 21 – 26


Zombies, John Woo-like top-down shooters and lighthouses in VR are just some of the titles out this week to get your gaming fix. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Out on Steam on Wednesday is the top down shooter The Hong Kong Massacre. This John Woo inspired action film reminds us a little bit of our other favourite top-down game Mr Shifty but still looks like a lot of fun.

And the big release of the week with the newly remastered Resident Evil 2 heading out on almost every major platform. Rebuilt on the new RE Engine by Capacom this looked amazing and nightmare-inducing when we saw it at E3 last year. Return to Raccoon City on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC through Steam & Retail this Friday.

Also on Friday, the next chapter in the Life is Strange series is out on Xbox One first. This series is great and instead of having to wait for each chapter you can also pick up the season pass instead so you will get every episode as it comes out. This episode also crosses over with the other great title by the same developer, Captain Spirit.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the VR Adventure/Puzzle title A Fisherman’s Tale. Out for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality you play as Bob the tiny Fishman puppet to prepare your lighthouse before the big storm hits. Get it on Wednesday.

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
