This Week in Games: Apr 4 – 9

Trust in the force, go for the headshot and the Amiga 500 has returned to fill your week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

And Tuesday is the big title for the week, so much so you might ask yourself do you need any other games? LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is coming out for Xbox, PlayStation(s), Steam and the Nintendo Switch. Star Wars LEGO games have been a staple for forever with countless ‘complete’ editions dropping every time we think Star Wars has had it’s final chapter, but this new edition brings a completely new gameplay style which might mean hitting 100% on a LEGO game just became more challenging.

Also this week but coming for Switch owners is something to make you nostalgic for arcades with House of the Dead ‘The remake’ coming out for the Nintendo Switch on Thursday. One of the most well known light gun arcades sitting shoulder to shoulder with Time Crisis this updates the game and includes some new gameplay too (though we would love it more if it had a light gun)

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the the mini-console you did not expect – The Amiga 500. Available this Friday the ‘console’ comes with 25 games from Another World to Battle Chess to Alien Breed and even has a ‘CRT’ mode but what caps off the experience is that it is also coming out with some optional accessories including a OG non-ergonomic Amiga mouse.

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
