This Week in Games: Sep 7 – 12


This week in gaming for Australia you can visit a Galaxy Far Far Away and setup a new place there, breakup the neighbours party, a little touch of RPG and go Super Smash Bros with indie titles. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

If you find yourself still out partying after 3am and just not know when to go home then the sequel to Party Hard is probably your game… if you are the one trying to stop the party, break up a drug trade and avoid an alien invasion. Out for Switch on Tuesday with Xbox following on Wednesday you can pick up this title with up to 4 playable characters, local coop and just a lot of shiney puzzle/brawler type moves.

Following trend for pixels is the RPG goodness of Star Renegades. If you are someone who loves building parties and rogue-like strategy then look no further for your PC when this comes out via Steam and the Microsoft store for PC. Also, the cut scene animation looks really awesome.

And lastly for the week on Thursday to scratch your brawler itch is Bounty Battle. Out for PlayStation the Switch and via Steam on the same day the premise is simple with it following your Smash Bros style gameplay with multiple characters to choose from but this time you aren’t playing Princess Peach vs Starfox vs Metroid but characters from some of your favourite indie titles like Dead Cells, Owlboy and Guacamelee to name a few.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out to… The Sims! Yes it has hundreds of expansions but not like this with the official Star Wars expansion coming to your PC. You will need a copy of the Sims to enjoy this DLC but prepare to be transported to Batuu aka Star Wars Land in Disneyland complete with layout and characters such as Rey, Hondo (from Clone Wars) and Black Spire Outpost unique characters like Vi Moradi. This one is expected on Wednesday on pretty much every platform you can get the Sims on including Xbox and PS4.

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
