This Week in Games: Sep 9 – 14


Return to the Loot’n’Shoot of Borderlands 3, Overcooked but with Trains, Red Dead Online gets an update and write nice letters to strangers over the Internet. There is a combo you probably wouldn’t have imagined together in a hot tub but it’s all out in gaming this week! But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Tuesday dropping on just about every platform (except the Switch, sorry) is the Witcher-like GreedFall. A single-player roleplayer that puts you in a far remote island filled with magic, lore and creatures for you to take on through combat, deception, stealth or diplomacy. There is also the ability to form a party of companions (and a chance of sexy times). Get it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Steam.

Not a new game release but on Tuesday/Wednesday anyone looking for a reason to revisit the Red Dead Redemption Online mode will be greeted with the latest update. Adding specialisation to your online game take on the role of Collector, Trader or (of course) Bounty Hunter all with associated perks as you level up in your chosen field.

Wednesday brings you a cute little Voxel coop title with Unrailed! Work with a group of friends (or strangers) to coop build a railroad through procedurally generated lands to ensure your train does not de-rail. It’s like Overcooked, but with Trains.

Your favourite Cell Shaded Looter-Shooter returns this Friday with the long-awaited Borderlands 3 dropping for Steam and PlayStation 4 this week. Featuring 3 Bazillion different gun load-outs (their term, not ours but it’s probably pretty close to the truth) with rifles that spew volcano lava or guns that grow legs to chase down enemies while hurling insults – 3 bazillions might be an understatement.

Honourable Mention: Our honourable mention this week goes to a game that isn’t so much a game… Kind Words (Lo-Fi Chill Beats to Write to) is an isometric single room based game where you write nice letters to real people. Is there things making you anxious or scared? Write them out and receive encouraging letters from other players or do the same for others. It’s just nice to be nice. It’s out on Steam on Friday.

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
