This Week in Games: Aug 24 – 29

VR racing, yet another Madden game, new episodic content from Life is Strange game maker and the real Commander Keen stands up. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Coming Wednesday is the next Project CARS direct to Xbox One but what we want to call out is on Friday when it launches on Playstation 4 and VR through Steam. If you are someone who can play VR without motion sickness and have been looking for a Triple-A racing title to get fully immersed in this could be it.

On Friday for Xbox comes the latest episodic title from the creators of Live is Strange, Tell Me Why. The game follows twins Alyson and Tyler travelling to their childhood home. With Tyler confirmed as the first transgender playable character from any major studio expect this to be deep with the feels like previous titles from Dontnod.

For the fans of the funny version of Football is the next chapter of one of the longest running franchises – Madden NFL 21. Releasing on Friday for Playstation 4, Xbox One and on Steam, it’s a long way from the first Madden out for the Apple-II in 1988.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the Switch revival of a classic game – Commander Keen. Not the mobile app reboot announced earlier this year but the real Commander Keen with Commander Keen in Keen Dreams reproducing the PC Freeware title to the Nintendo Switch this 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
