This Week in Games: Jul 25 – 30

Tap into only a fraction of Shaggy’s power, join a coven or cult, colonise a remote outpost in a banned game, run a BnB as a bear or solve crimes as a giraffe detective (he even has a hat) in your gaming week this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting the week with the Warner Bros edition of Smash Bros is MultiVersus entering Open Beta for PlayStation and Xbox gamers. MultiVerses is where you can put Shaggy against Batman against Jake the Dog against Bugs Bunny. If Space Jam 2 was a game this would be it. MultiVersus is a free to play game but you need to buy founders packs to really get access to most of the content.

Also on Thursday is Strange Horticulture which has already launched for the Steam but this week you can get it on Nintendo Switch. This is an occult based botany game where you solve puzzles with plants as the store owner of a local plant store who just happens to also be able to join a local coven or cult.

Coming Friday for PlayStation and Xbox is RimWorld Console Edition. What is RimWorld? Originally a 2013 Kickstarter for a top down construction and management simulator taking place on a remote colony world you probably heard of it but may not have played it as it was banned in Australia until April 2022 when an R18+ classification allowed the game to be available via Steam. The game received multiple high praise in reviews but it is up to you to tell if it was worth the wait.

And lastly Beqar & Breakfast releases on Steam this Friday. You play as a Bear and run a BnB in the woods. That’s pretty much it except that it is also coming to the Switch soon but PC gamers get the enjoy these adorable bear graphics first.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a game where you get to play as a Giraffe Detective because of course we have to make an honourable mention for a game were you play as a Giraffe Detective, you play as a Giraffe Detective! Lord Winklebottom Investigates (yes that is the name of the Giraffe) is a Agatha Christie/ Sherlock Holmes style point and click set in the 1920s who is solving a crime with his companion Dr Frumple (who is a Hippopotamus). Of course you want to know more as it is coming for Steam and the Nintendo Switch on Friday with the Xbox release on Saturday.

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
