This Week in Games: Jul 1 – 6


School holidays are happening across the country this week and you probably have a backlog of games to finish, but you are an unstoppable gaming machine and need something new this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Tuesday for PSVR fans is the new RPG shooter title, Scraper: First Strike. Originally released last year for Steam VR platforms the game jumps to PS4 with it’s Elite Dangerous/Star Wars Galaxies inspired gameplay. The title, of course, supports using Move Controllers and also the VR Aim Controller too but it is one of the first to support the new 3D Rudder motion controller that you use with your feet.

Just in time for Season 3 hitting Netflix this week is the 16bit edition of Stranger Things: The Game. Playing through like a 90s PC game or something from your Megadrive or SNES the new game boasts never before seen (in the show) quests alongside familiar locations. We would probably suggest finishing Season 3 before playing just to be safe. It’s out on XBox One and Steam on Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week was announced as part of E3 2018 with EA’s showcase of Indie titles was Sea of Solitude which comes out for PlayStation 4 this Friday and Xbox One this Saturday. Unlike last week’s person in boat simulator, this one plays more like a game than an experience in solving puzzles, meeting creatures and monsters (and learning their stories) and exploring the sunken cities by boat, foot or getting a little wet.

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
