Gun-toting Witches, Diablo style dungeon crawlers and cyberpunk worlds plus being stuck at home is not longer an excuse for not exploring the world with your Xbox is just some of the adventures you have planned for your gaming week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

16-bit graphics, adorable fairy tale pixelated creatures and a warm machine gun as you let loose a hail of gunfire to wipe them all out. That’s you, the Trigger Witch, the answer to what if we gave Link an R-rating and a flamethrower – there is probably a plot too but there is just something about the pixelated carnage in this one that caught our eye. This one is coming to PlayStation first on Wednesday with Xbox and Nintendo Switch on Thursday.

Thursday is another day to be amazed what a solo developer can do with OMNO being release for PlayStation and Steam with it coming to Xbox gamers on Friday. This is a single player experience that has you adventuring through the most picturesque of environments including snow to surf through and deserts to wander. It is an adventure/puzzle game but it is oh so pretty in motion.

Thursday brings more Diablo style gaming with the crypt exploring Eldest Souls. Not related to the Elder Scroll series but a soulslike game combining graphics and feel from Diablo but gameplay that will appeal more to the Hades gamer. This one drops for the Nintendo Switch (the perfect platform for this) and PlayStation on Thursday with it coming to Steam on Friday.

And rounding out your gaming week is one more for the Diablo-like pile with The Ascent coming to Xbox and Steam on the same day. This is more Diablo meets Cyberpunk as an isometric action RPG but offering multiplayer coop. We saw this as part of the Xbox Showcase this year and it definitely made our to-play list.

Honourable Mention: And our honorable mention this week goes out to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Yes, we remember last year when Flight Simulator was what everyone was talking about with real time weather and map integration it scratched that itch for travel at a time when you could not. This week that same experience comes to Xbox with the PC edition coming to Xbox Series X and S consoles for that same stunning feeling of exploring the world with 4K and HDR support.

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
