This Week in Games: May 4 – 9


Build new worlds, pixel adventure titles, RPG shooters making their way to the Switch, Mashups and Beat Em Ups are all ahead of you this week for your gaming pleasure. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week for fans of Civilisation IV comes Old World. Set for release on the Epic Games Store for PC, Old World is in the same vein as Civilisation but is coming to you from the Lead Designer of Civ IV. Pick it up on Wednesday.

Next for Switch owners is the die/respawn/repeat of the RPG shooter – Void Bastards. Timed for release with a deluxe edition that gives extra DLC, Void Bastards is a FPS that has you respawning from a line of unwilling participants as you try to take the ship. We also just love it’s cartoony graphics and think it is just perfect for the Nintendo Switch when it releases on Thursday.

Also over on the Epic Store for PC this week is another chill title for your gaming jitters in Before We Leave. This non-combat base building title has you building up new worlds and expanding to create a interplanetary supply network. There are also space whales. It’s for PC through the Epic Games store on Friday.

One more for PC gamers but on Steam is One Dreamer: Prologue also out this Friday. A tale about a failed VR game developer has you explore a 2.5D Pixel world reminiscent of early 90’s Sierra titles. This game has a touch of the Matrix as you update code through the game to make changes to the world around you. It’s a Prologue so we expect another chapter to follow.

And last for the end of your week is SuperMash. A unique style of game with a lot of replay value, SuperMash has you select from 2 different genres of gaming and mashes them together for a gaming experience. Want a RPG platformer? Done. Beat Em Up Vertical Shooter? Sorted. There are tons of approaches you can take to find your favourite game when you get this on Switch this Friday or XBox One on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a Switch title tie in with Jay and Silent Bob Mall Brawl on the Nintendo Switch. Playing through like an old school NES title (with graphics to match) fight as Jay or Bob in a Double Dragon’esque side scroller. Now if only we could get Scott Pilgrim vs The World on next gen.

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
