This Week in Games: Aug 26 – 31


Goonies inspired adventure from Double Fine, Epic Crashes and branching Horror, and take Control in the physics-defying ‘Control’ are just some of the titles you can pick up this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

It might not be the upside-down but on Tuesday a threat from another world comes through to New York in Control. Play as the new Director of a secretive government agency in this mind trip of supernatural abilities and tactical action when it comes out on Xbox One and Playstation 4 on Tuesday.

Full contact racing and epic crashes are the name of the game when you get behind the wheel in Wreckfest out on Tuesday. The demolition derby style action racer takes you from dirt to the bitumen in everything from derby cars, to campervans, to ride-on lawnmowers. Grab it on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

On Friday don’t play alone when you take on the Man of Medan in this branching horror anthology of five friends who set sail on a diving trip that goes sinister fast. Play with up to 5 other players online (because there is safety in numbers) when you pick this up on Friday for Xbox One or Playstation 4 where you can also pick up the anthology edition (or Steam).

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the Goonies inspired adventure title from Double Fine, Knights and Bikes. Play as one of two young girls with their pet duck as you look for trouble and adventure in this hand-painted title set in the ’80s. Get it on Steam 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
