This Week in Games: Jan 20 – 25

Escape the grind this week with point and click and story-based adventure titles, some Kingdom Hearts DLC, Sports and topdown shooters as the gaming year starts to take off this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

The week starts late on Thursday when you get an expansion for Kingdom Hearts III with the Re Mind DLC. Out for both Playstation 4 (and next month on Xbox One) the new story adds 13 boss battles as it explores something happening during the climax to the main game. Pick it up for PlayStation 4 first this week.

If you are only getting back to the grind but already your mind starts to wander then Thursday is a game all about you in The Office Quest. This point and click adventure has you donning your Where the Wild Things Are best as you solve puzzles and riddles while escaping the office reality. It’s out on Xbox One on Thursday.

Keeping with the office drone story is also Mosaic out on Friday. A quick story adventure game only taking 2-3 hours to complete, it’s dark and dreary as you look to escape your mundane existence working in one of the megacorporations in an ever-expanding city. Pick this one up on Xbox One too.

For sports franchise gaming fanatics who have had to endure a dry spell over Christmas then later this week brings Rugby 20. Supporting both single-player and local + online multiplayer (as it should) the game just dropped out of Beta earlier this month on the Microsoft Store. Grab it on PlayStation 4 and Steam on Thursday with the Xbox release on Friday. Go Sports Team!

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the fact that sometimes you just need a Contra shooter to wind down at the end of a long week and this Friday Dominance is that game. Out on Steam and set in the late 80s, Dominance has a large top-down map and a selection of characters with different traits + arsenal for you to choose from.

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
