OG GTA vibes as a Fugitive, Mysteries in Space, more SCUMM like adventures and PSVR Golfing are waiting for you this week. But before you cover your big screen TV in bubble wrap to save it from a rogue move controller, here are your highlights:

Out first on Tuesday for PlayStation 4/Steam and then Xbox One on Saturday is the GTA’esque American Fugitive. If you are an OG gamer who loved the first GTA and its sequel this game is definitely made for you with top-down destructible open-world playing as an escapee looking to clear your name.

Observation is the latest title from publisher Devolver Digital that has you solving a mystery… IN SPACE! You control the cameras, systems and generally everything of an orbiting space station to find out what happened to the Astronauts that have gone missing. If you love story based Sci-Fi thriller gaming than this one looks pretty good out on Tuesday.

Prepare to break some stuff around your house with the Everybody’s Golf latest update going to PSVR on Wednesday. A staple in the PlayStation family with releasing on every PlayStation (including the PSP and Vita) across its 10 game franchise the new game embraces the PSVR for you to swing your Move controllers wildly while your eyes are covered. Wear a wrist strap and maybe put some buffer furniture between you and your TV. (FYI – If you just want to try this out, a free driving range demo is also out for PSVR now)

Thursday go point and click and get in touch with your SCUMM gaming roots with the complete The Last Door out on Xbox One. Previously released as 8 separate chapters this low res 8/16 bit adventure might have you looking for your OG copy of Space Quest after you solve the occult and otherworldly horror of Victorian England.

Honourable Mention: This week we have two honourable mentions for a short gaming fix both from Steam. Plasticity is a beautiful platform adventure set in a near future of ruined cities playing as a young girl in search of a new life. Developed as part of a student University of Southern California program this is a short game with about 20-40 minutes of content. And if you are looking for something a bit more simple They Came From the Sky is a monochrome game that you might have played on your OG Gameboy. Taking control of the flying saucer, abduct humans (and other things) to make your people smoothie.

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
