This Week in Games: Jan 25 – 30

Looking for some new games in 2021? We got DLC for Dead Cells, stepping between the real and spirit realms with The Medium or a point and click as a little girl/robot alter ego. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting off with a little DLC and an excuse to get back into some Dead Cells is the Dead Cells: Fatal Falls add on for the Xbox and Switch editions of the game. New Biomes, new Enemies and new Bosses.. all the good stuff you want from DLCs.

Coming out for Thursday is the Final Fight style beat’em up of Colossus Down. With a cute cartoony art style you can either jump into a mecha-suit to destroy everything that isn’t cool or take control of the vegan pig-god with bleeding eyes to beat up everything in existence. Ok we aren’t exactly sure if you are the good guy in this story or not but it does have a style that make it seem just perfect for the Switch.

And next up is the big title for the week with The Medium. If you missed seeing this one during the Xbox E3 last year, this Xbox Next Gen exclusive is probably best explained as a mix between horror and Quantum Break as you step in and out of the spirit world to solve puzzles and progress. Out first for Steam this Thursday and only for Next Gen Xbox consoles on Friday.

And finally for the week is the adventure title of Tohu. With just a little touch of Machinarium point and click vibes about it you solve problems as a little girl or her robot alterego. It is out first for Steam on Thursday with Xbox and Switch following on Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this actually from last week when Hitman 3 came out for all major platforms (even the Switch). More of a catch up than an honourable mention as Hitman continues the tradition of stealth and truly in depth game mechanics for you to find unique and innovative ways of taking down your mark from posing as a chef with a plate topped with rat poison to the good old silencer to the back of the head.

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
