A sentient tree and a talking trash panda, extreme sports MMO, cyberpunk pixel style point and click, kingdom builders and everything from your N64 and SEGA Genesis days are in just some of the titles you have to play this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Join the Guardians of the Fricken Galaxy this Tuesday with the latest Marvel title from Square Enix. Playing as Peter Quinn with the modern Guardians team of Rocket, Groot, Drax and Gamora this is a single player action team-up where you play alongside the Guardians. It is coming for PlayStation and Xbox first on Tuesday and there is even a ‘Cloud Version’ making it possible to play on the Nintendo Switch too.

Riders Republic goes from open beta to full release this week coming out for PlayStation this Wednesday and Xbox on Wednesday. What is Riders Republic? It is a massive multiplayer extreme sport simulator., not sure what it means when al lthose words are put together? It’s like ‘The Steep’ but more extreme and with a lot of other players.

 

Also midweek is the Sierra like Cyberpunk matchup of VirtuaVerse. Out first for the Playstation on Wednesday, then the Switch on Thursday before Xbox on Friday, set in the near future VirtuaVerse is cyberpunk Sierra/Lucasarts style point and click adventure playing as one of the few outsiders who can ‘switch off’ the 24×7 VR overlay of the world.

This Friday conquer the globe or atleast a corner of it with Age of Empires IV coming to Game Pass for PC in addition to release on Steam. For the uninitiated Age of Empires is like Command and Conquer but with less video cut scenes and a lot more historical references.

 

 

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to not so much a game but a service with Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis coming to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscribers. This latest addition to the exclusive Nintendo Switch service adds a ton of N64 and Genesis era titles for you to revisit directly on your Switch.

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
