This Week in Games: Aug 3 – 8


Rolling Skulls, 4 player 8-bit style beat’em ups and the absolute chaos of 60 player platforming is some of the gaming ahead for you this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Wednesday if you have an Xbox or Switch and have ever wanted to play as a rolling decapitated skull, then boy are you in luck. Skull is a platformer that has you playing as a magic skull on a mysterious island where you must intervene in the war between the three sibling deities who are at war. Rolling around as a skull isn’t your only trick either as you can take mud baths to form a more might golem form.

And Friday is the Golden Axe/Final Fight top down multiplayer coop – Clan N. Playing with up to 4 players, this is a 80s arcade inspired modern pixel beat em up that lets you play in the same room or across the internet. You can get this one on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the end of the week (or Switch and Steam on Thursday).

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the ABSOLUTE CHAOS that is The Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. This is a 60 player battle royale party platformer which you might have seen your favourite streamer playing last weekend but you will be able to pickup on Steam on Tuesday. But that isn’t hte only reason to get an honourable mention as this one is also a PS+ game for PlayStation when it comes out for that on Tuesday as well.

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
