This Week in Games: Aug 17 – 22


Wonder if the world really is a simulation with the next generation Microsoft Flight Simulator, Rage Quit inspiring new edition of Battletoads for 2020 and battle the evil shape shifting Master of Darkness are just some of the things in store for your gaming this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Wednesday brings you a world so realistic you might not actually know you haven’t left the house in months the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator. A very VERY far cry from the XT days with genuine PC Speaker sound and a turbo button this gives you the entire world to fly over. Get it on Windows 10 using your Xbox Game Pass (or Tuesday on Steam)

Rage Quit Fall Guys after someone grabs you at the finish line no more, this Saturday on Xbox One you will have a completely new reason to Rage Quit with the return of Battletoads. Out for Xbox and Windows PC the new title takes on a hand-animated style with the same team up experience you love to loathe.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a time long ago in a distant land where Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! Oh yes, Samurai Jack’s back and boy does this look good. The action platformer that lets you wield the magic sword is out this Friday for Steam and Saturday for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Switch.

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
