This Week in Games: Jul 12 – 17


Short week is a good week with our gaming pile adding up and some major titles incoming soon but that doesnt mean you get the week off from gaming with rescuing family dogs, defending Hyrule and Cryptids dating simulators all up this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting the week with some feels is Where the Heart Is, a PlayStation story based title about when a sinkhole opens up in a small town and the family dog goes to close to it. You play as the father of the family who goes down to save it but while you are down there some weird stuff starts to happen. This one looks interesting but coming from Armature (who have some of the creatives behind Metroid Prime beyond being responsible for a bunhc of ports) making it something to check out when it comes out for PlayStations on Tuesday.

Friday brings us the big title for the week, with a new Zelda title for the Nintendo Switch. Well not new, and not BotW 2 but definitely new to the platform with the Wii title Legend of the Zelda: Skywards Sword getting a HD remaster for the Nintendo Switch. Being originally a Wii title there was plent of Nunchuck swinging and bow pulling with the motion controllers and this new edition gives 2 ways to play on your Switch both supporting similar improved motions with the Joycons OR if you have a Switch Lite a completely controller style experience.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to Raptor Boyfriend: A High School Romance for delivering the line “Yes, I am a Skateboarding Velociraptor”. What is it? Basically it’s a lot like Hatoful Boyfriend but with Cryptids. It is a romance simulator where you are the 90’s teenager Stella who has just moved to a new town and has romantic intents on one of 3 characters from the local high school – The Velociraptor, the Bigfoot or the Fae.

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
