This Week in Games: Nov 2 – 7


SCUMM and Text Based Adventure titles, remastered Getaway Drivers and a title from the mind behind Monkey Island finally making it’s way to Xbox. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Mid-week you can play a little old school SCUMM action with Dude, Where is my Beer. Push, Pull, Look at and Use your way in the search for the perfect Pilsner in a world of craft beer and snobby hipsters. Pick this one up on Steam so you can enjoy it with your mouse and keyboard.

Following for a good week for racing gamers is the remaster of a Need for Speed favourite Hot Pursuit. Revising the 2010 edition the update includes an additional 6 hours of gameplay DLC (for free) at release, embrace your inner Smokey and the Bandit when you can play this from Friday on Xbox, PlayStation and Steam.

Honourable Mention: This weeks first honourable mention goes out for players who are sick of high framerates, sick of realistic graphics, who would rather build their own boot disc to optimise their himem.sys than play something with raytracing. This week’s honourable mention goes to Ord. What is Ord? Ord is a text based game for… Xbox One. Yes text, not only that Ord doesn’t waste time on things like full sentences! No, you can make do with only 3 single words to act! With 5 unique stories to play through this is definitely the title you want on Thursday just before picking up your next gen console next week or on Saturday for the Nintendo Switch.


And just as a extra bonus honourable mention this week is for the Xbox release of Knights and Bikes from Double Fine Studios aka Tim Schafer aka Day of the Tentacle and more creator. Previously released on PlayStation, Steam and more this Deathspank like title gives you a 1 or 2 player experience as you play as Nessa or Demelza as they explore their island, upgrade their bikes and general quest type stuff with their pet Goose, Captain Honkers.

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
