This Week in Games: Oct 12 – 17


Slip into your White Polyester Suit for some Mario Kart AR before catching Serial Killers, then building society from scratch isometrically and putting Games Night is back on this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week on Friday is the thing we have been most excited to get our hands on this month – Mario Kart Live! If you missed out on the original announcement this is AR Mario Kart with your own remote controlled Maro (or Luigi) Kart that you drive around a track of your making right on your floor and using your Nintendo Switch. A little more pricey than a standard Switch game we are seriously hyped for these when you can get yours on Friday.

If you are a RTS gamer this week who loves nothing more than evolving society to the point of being able to nukes to Gandhi then the next gen re-release of Age of Empires III is probably already on your playlist this week. Updated for 4K graphics and out for purchase through Steam but if you have Xbox Game Pass for PC it is also available for free for you this Friday.

If catching serial killers is your obsession then also on Friday you can find the San Francisco killer when you play This is the Zodiac Speaking. Playing as the journalist that was contacted by the Zodiac killer and using clues and cryptic clues left by the same you can try to make a new ending when you play this on Xbox or Steam.

And lastly for the week you can get some much needed games night in with friends when you pick up Jackbox Party Pack 7 on Steam or for Xbox on Friday. Collecting some of the best party games including the latest Quiplash, you can play this with up to 8 players using mobile phones as controllers making it he perfect choice for when you can’t games night in person.

Honourable Mention: And lastly our honourable mention goes to the house of Sierra with the second return for the original NSFW gamer, Leisure Suit Larry. Continuing with German studio CrazyBunch carrying on from ‘Wet Dreams Don’t Dry’ to the new title ‘Wet Dreams Dry Twice’ is full of enough sexual innuendo and humour to keep any lounge lizzard happy when it comes… releases… um…  Drops on Thursday via 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
