This Week in Games: Dec 9 – 14


Save Christmas, master a Unix System in a Dinosaur Theme Park, Escape Jail, Run the Daily Bugle and more is in store for your gaming week this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Wednesday, welcome back.. to Jurassic Park <Insert Jurassic Park theme song>, sorta. The Dinosaur themed Simcity Jurassic World Evolution gets some needed DLC this week as it adds the original Jurassic Park. Playing through events of the first movie maybe you can master a theme park where the pirates of the Carribean don’t come to life and eat the tourists (that was 10 years before Jack Sparrow, always listen to Ian Malcolm). Pick it up Wednesday on XBox but Tuesday on Steam.

Continuing the Wednesday train over on Steam it is the prequel to the stealth cartoony horror of Hello Neighbour with Hello Neighbour: Hide and Seek. This one has taken a little while to get to PC with the console releases last year but finally, Steam/PC will get their chance.

On Thursday is your own personal J. Jonah Jameson simulator with Headliner: NoviNews. Playing a little like this is the Police you pick and choose news stories to publish and then see the consequences from Utopia to Riots across the city. Pick this up for your Xbox One.

And Friday for some VR gaming check out ReFrame on Oculus Rift. Use lanterns to colour shift the world and guide your 3 helpers inside this massive clock. It’s on Steam and for VR.

Honourable Mention: The honourable mention this week is for a little bit of Christmas gaming with My Super Defender: Battle Santa Edition on Steam this Friday. Playing with a friend you fight your way along the board in this top-down defence/brawler as you save Christmas with your WASD keys.

And a second honourable mention goes to a not new but free title for your Christmas time gaming – The Escapists. Free from Friday on the Epic Games store this is your opportunity to master the greatest jailbreak of all time (or just try not to get shanked in the shower). It’s free on your PC this week.

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
