This Week in Games: Oct 4 – 9


Put on your samus suit, strap on your mortar backpack, pilot your exploratory ship, form up your squad and make sure you put batteries in your flashlight. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting our the week early with something old but for your something new is Alan Wake Remastered. The defining Xbox game is making it’s jump to PlayStation with a next gen update for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for your gaming on Monday.

Jumping ahead to the big title for the week with Far Cry 6. Scaling up from a mountain cult to an island nation dictator you plan to start a revolution and overthrow the government. You can Viva La Revolution on PlayStaiton on Wednesday and Xbox on Thursday.

If you feel you aren’t getting enough multiplayer and zombies in your diet this week then Back 4 Blood is releasing for PlayStation and Xbox gamers on Friday. Considered the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead through being developed by the original game creators after their split from Valve this offers 8 player PVP or 4 player Coop in mission based campaigns which have an AI Director behind the scenes to adapt gameplay just when you think you are Woody Harrelson in the first Zombieland.

And lastly for the week is something to get in touch with your OG Nintendo roots with Metroid Dread for the Switch. Completely following the gameplay and 2D style of the original games Dread was originally a Nintendo DS game that was cancelled in the mid-2000s (due to technical limitations at the time) but you can play it this Friday on your Switch.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a game we saw during a recent PlayStation Showcase – Jett: The Far Shore. Feeling like somewhere between Wipeout and No Mans Sky, JETT has you piloting a small craft on an ocean planet, exploring and avoiding native creatures. This one is for explorers not fighter pilots, but it drops on Monday.

And one last honourable mention this week is the Nintendo Switch OLED Model. The 3rd new Nintendo Switch model this one has practically all the same specs and capabilities as the current models but boasts an OLED screen. If you are a fan of bright screens and don’t already have a Switch this might be a model to check out (or maybe grab the last version for cheap).

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
