This Week in Games: Aug 30 – Sep 4


An adventure title from the studio behind the Walking Dead and Invincible, Side-scrolling Viking slaughter, adorable monsters playing in the snow and take a 2 week vacation delivering mail in a lakeside town. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week on Tuesday with an adventure title from Skybound Games, The Big Con. This distinctly late 90s adventure title feel has you hustling and grifting your way across the U.S. of A in the 90s to try and save your family’s video store. But why does Skybound sound familiar? Perhaps you know Skybound from some of their comics including Invincible and The Walking Dead. Get it on Steam on Tuesday or Xbox on Wednesday.

Side-scrolling action with a viking flavour and just a tiny hint of Prince of Persia is Song of Iron coming to Xbox on Wednesday. Playing as a Viking warrior you fight across enemies hoards both large and small and taking them out with some fairly brutal attacks from a flaming axe to a point blank arrow to the head. Previously released on Steam, check it out for yourself when it drops on Xbox this Wednesday.

And lastly is the most relaxing game you will find this week is Lake. You play as the main character taking a break from her regular life to go back home and help out delivering mail in a small lakeside town in 1986. Does this town have a dark secret? No, not in the slightest. Animal Crossing is more sinister than this one. This is just pure wholesomeness and entirely what you make it. Delivery the mail, have a relationship, do whatever you want! Check it out for yourself this Thursday on Xbox and Steam.


Honourable Mention: And lastly our honourable mention this week goes to A Good Snowman is Hard to Build. This quirky little puzzle game has you playing as a monster making snowmen by rolling balls in the snow to make the perfect snowman. Previously released on Steam with some attention this perfectly suited puzzle game is coming 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
