Atari classics, alien worlds, VR plumbers, solve problems with your voice and solve your problems by murdering your friends, it is all just another normal week for your gaming But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with the latest from Atari, no you read that right Atari brought out a new game (well an old game) this week. Atari was already updating their consoles for the Atari VCS but on Monday PlayStation owners can get some retro gaming with Asteroids: Recharged before it makes it’s way to the Switch and for Steam on Tuesday.

Following that up on Tuesday with some reason to play with your Oculus Quest with the plumbing puzzler Pipeline VR. There are no shortage of VR games dropping every week but there is just something a little bit satisfying about the way you click together pipes to solve flooding related problems in this puzzle sim.

 

Then also on Tuesday, a game that we would normally thrown in as our honourable mention but that is already covered this week and we really wanted to tell you about One Hand Clapping. One Hand Clapping is a puzzle game with a mechanic slightly unique as you have to use your own voice to solve puzzles. This is not a singing game but rather pitch and notes are what help you traverse. Previously out for Steam you can get this for the Switch on Tuesday (which it is perfect for) and the PlayStation on Wednesday.

And Friday brings another title we have been looking forward to with The Gunk. Shown at the not-E3 event by Microsoft this year the Gunk is dropping this Friday and it is free for Game Pass subscribers as it is of course coming to Xbox first. Basically alien planet, gauntlet that lets you add/remove ‘Gunk’ and looks pretty cool. Definitely a contender if you have finished off everything and looking for something to keep you entertained over Christmas.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to one that has been around for a while but is only making it’ way to Sony and Microsoft consoles this week – Among Us. You already know Among Us, based on the Werewolf game you have to find the imposter before they get you… but in SPACE! Xbox and PlayStation owners join in the deception from this Tuesday. And yes, it will continue to have Crossplay.

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
