This Week in Games: Sep 28 – Oct 3


Join the Rebellion with VR, plunge the deepest caverns, play with shadow puppets (no not your go to rabbit and duck ones) and get your Crash on all this week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week on Tuesday on Steam is the sequel to the many lost hours of gaming that you chalked up to ‘Ill only play for a few minutes’ with Spelunky 2. For the uninitiated Spelunky is a side scrolling platformer that has you play the role of mining adventurer searching deeper and deeper into the mines except this time you’re on the MOON! (it’s also already out for the PlayStation 4 which you probably will guess from the trailer)

Keeping with your platformer groove is something for your console with the new Crash Bandicoot! Announced only recently and coming to both the PlayStation and Xbox this has everything you want from a Crash game in platforming but adding a new playable character in Coco, the younger sister of Crash. Grab this one on Friday.


Anyone who played X-Wing vs Tie Fighter probably already knows that this week also sees the release of Star Wars: Squadrons. Coming for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One the campaign lets you play through as part of the Empire or the Rebellion (with some certain ‘REBELS’ pilots appearing on the way). But what we are most excited for is the full VR support that this title brings for both Steam VR compatible headset and PSVR owners. We had a little taste of flying an X-Wing in VR as part of the 2015 Battlefront single player mission tie-in to Rogue One and we are ABSOLUTELY here for more.


Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the Sydney developer Shadowplay Studios major release – Projection: First Light. Coming out on just about every platform on Wednesday you play as Greta, a shadow puppet in a shadow puppet world. Following the history of Shadow Puppets as they evolved across Indonesia, China, Turkey and 19th century England this single player side-scroller looks amazing and worth your time to check out this week when you pick it up on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch or through Steam

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
