This Week in Games: Nov 4 – 9


Baby’s in Jars, Epic Car Chases, John Woo’esque VR and Red Dead for the PC are just some of the weirdness out in gaming this week. But it’s ok, we like weird. So before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Start your week with some Cowboy action when PC Gamers will finally get their hands on Red Dead Redemption 2. We don’t really need to tell you much except that the game is finally making its jump from a console only exclusive to the Epic Games store on Wednesday.

On Thursday you can pick up the John Woo movie meets Beat Saber shoot’em up Pistol Whip. Out on Steam for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets you are on a sliding platform with an unending wave of bad guys. It’s basically John Wick VR.

Channel your inner getaway driver with Need for Speed Heat out this Friday for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Street racing vs a city of rogue police force as you can play through the single-player or race online.

And lastly for Friday is the big release this week with the PlayStation 4 exclusive – Death Stranding. Sometimes referred to as ‘that new Hideo Kojima game with the Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus with a baby in a jar strapped to him’ you can find out what it is really about at the end of this week.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to, Jumanji the Video Game. Yes we know the new Jumanji is a video game and yes the new NEW Jumanji is coming out in December but this is Jumanji the video game as a video game for you to play. Online. With up to 3 other people. Play as the Rock or Amy Pond but clearly you want that Smolder.

And a bonus honourable mention this week for a free game just out on the Epic Games store – Double Fine’s Costume Quest. Who is Double Fine we hear you ask? None other than the Production Company of Tim Schafer the guy behind Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Island and a TON of other games. Just get over to the Epic Games store now to get this new one for free.

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
