This Week in Games: Dec 18 – 23


VR sword play as an Assassin, pixel based adventures where your main character is counting down to their demise and a cursed Thomas the Tank Engine are some of the games to keep you entertained over the Christmas break. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Jumping straight to Wednesday for the final week of gaming releases for the year is Tiger Blade on PlayStation VR2. A FPS only if the S stands for Sword as you mix it up between gunplay and katana to cut your way John Wick style through a rival Tiger Clan.

On Friday we want to call out a game we already have for Steam/PC gamers a few weeks ago but coming to Xbox this Friday. Three Minutes to Eight is a pixel based point and click style adventure where the main character is destined to die at 07:57 PM exactly. Why are we giving this another call out? Because Christmas is coming and you are going to need some games that are little more than casual.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention goes to the most cursed nightmare fuel game that is heading to Xbox this week with the previously released Steam game Choo-Choo Charles. This FPS shooter combines travelling in your personal train with being hunted down by a Train with spider legs and a face like if Thomas the Tank Engine had a drug problem.

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
