Play as an Avo and slice up your friends Banana with a Boomerang (that isn’t a euphemism), get your Fight Club on with the UFC, Rhythm Road Rage and micro-manage a team controlling a giant robot for your gaming pleasure this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Voltron or Power Rangers, if you love a team that controls a giant robot then Thursday is your day with Volta-X. Manage a team of heroes, upgrade your base but more importantly upgrade and manage your huge freakin robot that you will control in a series of 1-on-1 battles with other giant robots! This is available on only the Switch and Steam this week.

Not content with giant robots and want to get your hands dirty? EA (it’s in the gaaaame) drops their next installment for the UFC franchise with UFC 4 on PlayStation and Xbox One this Friday. While it brings a lot from the previous editions we have to give a shout out to the backyard arena which will give you the most realistic setting to beat up your friends outside of Fight Club.

And finally also on Friday, Boomerang Fu puts you against your friends playing as sentient fruit and slicing each other up with razor sharp boomerangs. It’s a little light disc fights in Tron meets the kid from Max Mad 2 as you throw & bounce your boomerang to take out up to 4 friends as well as use it to deflect incoming boomerangs too. It’s out for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam all on the same day.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention goes to a title we have mentioned before but making it’s way from Steam to the Switch is the shooter rhythm title of Double Kick Heroes. Hit the notes, fire back during your epic 16 bit car chase sequence. This is the type of gaming that hits the sweet spot in on our Switch and you can get it on Thursday.

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
