This Week in Games: Jan 17 – 22


Back on the gaming horse for 2022 starts with the latest from the Tom Clancy franchise vs Aliens, 16bit monster golf, a dash of puppers and some new coverings for your PS5 (if you are lucky enough to have one). But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Start your year with gaming with some fireteam gaming in Rainbow Six: Extraction on PlayStation and Xbox this Thursday. Team up with 2 other players as you run missions to rescue teammates from aliens without needing to be extracted yourself.

Mixing Links Awakening with pretty much any 16 bit golf game you have ever played and you get RPGolf Legends also out this Thursday. This top down adventure title mixes playing golf with open world adventure as you play as a girl who meets the spirit of a golf club and then has to defeat various monsters as you adventure from the green to drifting a bus in snow to flying zeppelins (it’s a little weird but we like weird). You can pick this up for PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Steam this week.

And lastly in the week for PlayStation 5 owners who might be a bit bored with their plain white covers, Sony is releasing the first of the replaceable covers for the Digital and Regular versions of the PS5. This week you can pickup the Black and Red covers to match the new controllers but expect the other controller colour matching covers to be not too far away.

Honourable Mention: And finally this week to ease you into the new year not every game needs to be about fighting monsters and aliens with Pupperazzi you play photographer for puppers. Build up your portfolio, get new equipment, and take pictures of dogs. Try it out on Xbox and Steam this Friday.

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
