This Week in Games: Jul 27 – Aug 1


Alien Invasions, Manga adaptations, beat em ups and the first title to come out of last week’s Xbox event are just some of the titles out for your gaming pleasure this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Getting a jump on the end of the world with a good old fashion Alien Invasion is the remaster of the original Destroy All Humans. Take the side of the Aliens to mind control, blast, abduct and probe all the humans thanks to your advanced alien technology. You can get this on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday with it available through Steam on Wednesday.

For the Manga/Anime inclined this week comes Fairy Tale. Based on the Manga series this is everything you would want in Manga turned Card Game turned Turn based open world console game. Capturing that cell shaded style we like for these types of games you can pick it up on Steam, PlayStation and take it with you on Switch this Thursday.

Friday is for side scrolling beat’em up with Streets of Rage 4. Releasing for Xbox, PlayStation and the Switch on Friday this joins the release on Steam a few months ago. Not much to say here, it’s the 4th in this series so if you don’t know what it’s about then you are going to need to put in some serious arcade time to catch up when they reopen.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the title from last weeks Xbox Game Showcase – Grounded. Play as tiny humans in the backyard, coop’ing with friends and building defences from giant bugs. It’s out for play on Wednesday for Xbox and Steam but if you want to see what else was announced at the Xbox Game Showcase last week check out our Not-E3 recap.

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
