This Week in Games: Sep 14 – 19


This week score a goal, lay a smackdown, travel the galaxy and do some relaxing unpacking. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with the only English Football League you might see this year with eFootball PES 2021. An updated edition of the eFootball PES 2020 gives you everything from that edition but with updated player data and club rosters but what makes this really interesting is how it is also impacted by COVID with a lot of teams to update their roster post release. Snag this or your favourite team edition on Tuesday for PlayStation 4 or via Steam and Xbox One on Wednesday.

Just in the mood for some side-scrolling shoot’em up? Check out Johnny Rocket this Thursday on Xbox One. Johnny Rockets is a pencil drawing style action platformer that you probably would have drawn along the columns of your books when you were in school. Run and gun, fly planes and fight robots, nuff said.

If you are in a more CONTRA mood this week then you will want to check out Dog Duty releasing for the Switch on Thursday with Xbox One following on Friday. Following an isometric view this single player game has you assemble a 3-person squad to mow down and liberate outposts all in a graphic 16-bit style to give yourself those Super NES vibes.

Also on Friday if you are in more of a smackdown mood there is WWE 2K Battlegrounds out on pretty much everything. Supporting up to 4 players with offline multiplayer and a massive 8 players for online step into the spandex of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ronda Rousey and the Rock in a variety of match types to safely beat the crap out of your friends. Get it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

And rounding out the week is the title you have been waiting for with Super Mario 3D All Stars out for the Nintendo Switch. This limited time offering gives you the best of Mario from the N64 with Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy all n the one packaging. Why do we say limited time? Because Nintendo have come out and said that it would be, so expect this to be on your future retro gaming market hunt list.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out to…. a PAX Demo. There is no PAX this year that is right but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tons of hard working game developers around the country who have been working hard on their titles to show off like the zen that is Unpacking. Still a year away from general release the Brisbane Based developers at Witch Beam have made a demo version of their unpacking simulator available on Steam. Trust us, if you are someone who loves setting up a new place you need this.

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
