This Week in Games: Aug 9 – 14

Start a Doomsday Cult, Avoid Eviction and fight your way out of Hell, good thing you play video games to escape from reality right? A short gaming week is a good week but before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Set in a cyberpunk backdrop you assume the role of a character whose identity has been foreclosed, a 3rd person based comic/cell style game you have to escape the city before your identity (and implants) are auctioned off. Foreclosed has some pretty good looking art and uses an RPG like system for this narrative driven title. Check it out for yourself and pick it up on Switch this Thursday with Xbox and PlayStation releases on Friday.

You probably have already heard or seen the rogue-like Switch title Hades, now the greek mythology thirst traps are coming to other platforms with the PlayStation and Xbox release on Friday. If you aren’t familiar the idea is simple, escape hell, if you die you are already in hell so you have to start over again.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the 4 player coop of Fhtagn! – Tales of the Creeping Madness. Coming to the Switch after being on Steam for some time this is minigame style (as a quick game is a good game) has you building world ending cults in a tabletop style gameplay with some Lovecraft flavour. This comes to the Switch on Thursday.

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
