This Week in Games: Sep 2 – 7


Juice up your chainsaw and return to the Gears Universe, Hunt Dragons in Monster Hunter: Icebourne or play as one in Spyro Remastered, Dungeon Crawlers, Puzzles in the Dark and brawl across the city to save your Boyfriend. Yeah, there is a lot out this week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Nintendo Switch owners get first this week with one of your favourite titles coming to the Switch in a collected edition. Play as the purple Dragon Spyro through the remastered Trilogy with updated controls for silky smooth play for the Switch out on Tuesday (and Steam on Wednesday).

This Thursday Steam gets the unique and emotive puzzler, FRACTER. Play through a world of Shadows with the only tool that matters, light. This one reminds us a little of Monument Valley but with an atmosphere that might see you sleeping with a night light.

Skipping ahead to Saturday is a unique title that is Pinball meets Dungeon Crawler in Creature in the Well. Charge up energy orbs to bounce them off ancient machinery to unlock your path. It also looks pretty cool too.

Have you hunted down every monster, crafted every outfit and made every kitten sidekick? If you know what we are talking about you are probably hyped for the latest Monster Hunter: World expansion out on Saturday with Icebourne. The expansion also opens up a new Master Rank giving you plenty of reason to return to the hunt.

And finally for Saturday is your big title for the week with Gears 5 out in Ultimate Edition exclusive to the Xbox One. You know what this one is about – endless hordes, crumbling world, machine guns with chainsaws in them. You know, the usual.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to the Pixel Art side-scrolling beat ’em up, River City Girls. This coop action title sees you take the role of Kyoko and Misako as they brawl their way across town streets of rage style to save their boyfriends. We can’t help but have the urge to dust of Scott Pilgrim vs the World checking this one out and you can get it on Friday for Xbox One.

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
