This Week in Games: Oct 14 – 19


Come down easy off your PAXAUS high this week with some great new gaming titles plus one recent indie title available for free this week for PC gamers! But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Wednesday pick up the updated classic Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II Enhanced Editions for the Xbox One. This 1998 series set the tone for all D&D-like games that followed but you can go back to where it started (with a slight polish).

Do you love side-scrolling titles like Limbo or Another World? On Thursday you might be wanting to add Stela to your playlist. Developed by the Halo Infinite Co-Developer, SkyBox Labs you play as a young woman across an ancient crumbling world in its last days. Pick it up for Xbox One first (it’s also going to show up on the Apple Arcade in a few weeks).

And on Friday, this is going to be a weird one, remember Plants vs Zombies? Remember that casual game you played on your phone? Ok so, you might want to sit down for this. It’s now an Overwatch like FPS shooter out for PlayStation 4 this Friday and Xbox One on Saturday, and it actually looks pretty good.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a free game. Well not free but it’s free this week on the Epic Game Store. After the exclusive John Wick game last week, the Epic Games store want you to slide into their listing by offering Surviving Mars for free right now. What’s the catch you say? You need to install the new Epic Games launcher to install and play. So just like Steam, but not Steam.

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
