This Week in Games: Nov 11 – 16


Timelords, Jedis, Pokemon and one-armed Blacksmiths are all ahead of you for your gaming needs this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Friday brings your big title this week with the return of single-player Star Wars games in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Playing as a padawan who escaped the purge of order 66 you get to play through this entirely new story which is official Star Wars canon. If only Kyle Katarn could see you now. Pick this up on Friday on PlayStation 4 or Saturday for Xbox One.

On Wednesday pick up the hammer of the one-handed blacksmith Ivan and take on a near-impossible task for the Tzar through a hack and slash title that fans of Deathspank will love. It’s out for Xbox One.

Friday is a good day to be a Pokemon fan with Pokemon Sword hitting the Switch exclusively. This latest title in the series follows the RPG path letting you explore and open world while still aiming to be the very best.

If Pokemon is not your forte (*sad Pikachu sound*) then the top-down adventurer Sparklite might be. Playing a little more like Link’s Awakening this title is also out for the Nintendo Switch when it also hits the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Friday.

And lastly for Friday, you can satisfy that itch for more games like the OG Metroid with the platform shooter Valfaris. This side-scrolling shooter out on the PlayStation 4 and Switch on Friday (and the XBox One on Saturday) also boasts a full heavy metal soundtrack to go with your blasting.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out to the Whovians with the Doctor Who: The Edge of Time VR game hitting out Steam on Tuesday (with PSVR edition also expected on the same day at this point). Following an adventure with the latest Doctor you take on the role of companion in a heavily puzzle-based VR adventurer.

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
