This Week in Games: May 13 – 18

Start your week with SCUMM inspired Spy Adventure games, be the last Ranger and free the wastelands, learn the importance of vaccinations during the Black Plague all before defeating Dracula and slaying a Dragon. You know, just a usual week for you. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

First up we have the big title of the week with Rage 2 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam. The latest open world FPS from the makers of Just Cause and the awesome Mad Max open world titles play as the last Ranger in a wasteland where the asteroid hit and 80% of the population were annihilated. Upgrade weapons, fight factions, vehicle combat, defeat a shadowy overlord like organisation.. you know everything you love to do in an open world game.

Sick of being told the importance of Vaccinations by your friends, coworkers and trained medical experts? Return to the happier time of the Plague in the 16th century Europe as you play as a young girl with her little brother as they step across bodies and avoid plague rats in a diseased France during the deaths of millions. A Plague Tale: Innocence is out on Tuesday for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam.

On Thursday rekindle your point and click adventure love with the Steam title – Irony Curtain: From Matryoshka with Love. Inspired by the works of Lucasarts we do get a Sam and Max/Monkey Island vibe from this hand-drawn cartoonish spy adventure in a communist country.

End your week with some retro gaming goodness with not one but two Collected editions coming to Xbox. On Friday grab your whip to defeat Dracula in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection (also check out the Netflix Castlevania series, it’s pretty good and in season 2). Then on Saturday, the original rage quit arcade title also comes to Xbox with the Dragon’s Lair Trilogy. Timing and knowing where to step is the difference between defeating the dragon and an Xbox controller through your TV.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out to a game we have mentioned before – Feudal Alloy. This week the hand-drawn epic adventure platformer comes to Xbox One but why do we mention it? Because you play as a fish controlling a robot suit! Pick it up for Xbox on Thursday.

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
