Endless runners, Mii return from the Wii, get a little 1984, PlayStation is giving away free stuff and dodgeball goes crossplay at launch. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with PARKOUR! Or possibly described as the endless side scrolling runner Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield. Releasing for the Xbox, Steam and Switch on Wednesday this game has some funky beats with it’s fluid gameplay which might make it your new prefered zone out and game title.

If you had a Wii then you know what a Mii is. That little representation of you and your friends that you spent the first hour of getting a Wii with just so you had something to know who you were before you embedded your Wii controller in the wall because you didn’t think you needed that little strap to play Wii Tennis. Mii’s are back for the Nintendo Switch and they have their own game now – Miitopia. If we had you at Mii then you can get this on Friday for your Nintendo Switch.

Also Friday if you can Dodge a Wrench you can dodge a ball with Knockout City coming first to Steam on Friday with Xbox on Saturday. Sitting somewhere between Dodgeball and Overwatch this one is aiming to be big with Cross-Play and backward compatibility at launch. Crew up, get the ball, bring the hurt.

 

 

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week isnt a game but a bunch of games for PlayStation owners. This week as part of the Play At Home promotion (that got you Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for free last week) there is a bunch of game packs to give you a reason to dust off some games that might be in your back catelogue. If you have Rocket League, Brawlhalla, Destruction AllStars, MLB The Show 21, NBA 2K21, Rogue Company, World of Tanks, World of Warships OR Call of Duty: Warzone on PlayStation check out the Play at Home tab on the PS Store for skins, weapons, ingame currency etc but only for a limited time.

BUT while you are at it you should also sign up for the Days of Play happening this week where you can take part in community challenges in many other PlayStation games for actual real prizes from this Tuesday/Wednesday.

Dont have a PlayStation? We have a second honourable mention this week for Mind Scanners on Steam this Friday. Live the dream of being in a futuristic dystopian metropolis where you scan the psyches of your fellow citizens and then mess with their brains. But in a fun 1984 puzzle game sort of way.

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
