This Week in Games: Jul 29 – Aug 3


Madden turns 30, Nintendo Switch owners get some turn-based strategy, Procedurally generated coop horror and a Galaga inspired shooter is heading your way this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Start the week with the next edition in one of the longest franchises in video gaming with Madden NFL 20. Seriously the first one of these came out in 1989 which means this is currently rocking a 30-year long streak of well over 30 games across every platform including the Apple II. While not quite the cutting edge of the Game Gear release you can pick up the latest on PlayStation 4 on Tuesday with the Xbox One edition out on Wednesday.

On Tuesday Switch owners get another title previously only seeing on it’s bigger console siblings when Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden drops. This turn-based strategy role-playing game will no doubt be popular with any XCOM players but PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners won’t miss out with the expansion Mutant Year Zero: Seeds of Evil dropping on the same day.

On Wednesday horror comes to the suburbs with the procedurally generated ‘The Blackout Club’. This first-person horror has something we seldom see in this genre, coop. You and up to 3 friends have to sneak around the neighbourhood to find the horror lurking but draw too much attention to yourself and the horror will find you.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the Galaga’esque space ship shooter – Super Star Blast. Dropping for the Xbox One on Saturday this title just looks to scratch that itch we have for some top-down infinite wave shooter with a dash of multiplayer thrown in.

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
