Battlebots, Spyhunter throwbacks, Helicopter Gunships and a ton of demos are all on deck this week but given it’s E3 week maybe don’t be surprised if there are a couple of late entries for your gaming week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your E3 week with something for Steam is Hard Steel. Basically this is a Battlebots or Robot Combat style game where you have access to a series of battlebots to go one on one in a steel box area that anyone who has watched a battlebot like event will find familar. This one is on Steam first this Tuesday.

Spyhunter was one of the first games on the arcade generation of the 1980s. The top down game would have you play as a James Bond like character driving a kitted out car with machine guns, oil slicks and more. If you were lucky enough you might have even played on one of the arcade machines with a steering wheel controller. Agent Intercept follows in this pedigree with a 3rd person Secret Agent with a kitted out car and waves of bad guys to dispatch. Check it out for Steam on Thursday.

Scratch that itch for Sega Megadrive era Helicopter games with Heliborne coming to Xbox on also Thursday. Play through a variety of military helicopter eras from the 1950s to modern day gunships with over 50 different types of craft to fly missions, support ground troubles, etc and get your Jan-Michael Vincent on (that was an Airwolf reference, not a Rick and Morty one).

And Friday, sometimes you just like a pretty puzzle game and Lona: Realm of Colors tickets that box as it joins the class of successful game kickstarters making it’s way to a Steam launch. Beautiful scenes that you adjust the contract and colour to solve will tick a box for any photoshop editors but still worth a look for those scenes.

 

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to…. nothing that is coming out this week but a whole bunch of demos you can try as part of the Summer Games Fest Demo event on Xbox. There are over 40 demos for upcoming games to try out but if we had to give you a few to look out for Sable, Echo Generation and Tunic.

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
