This Week in Games: Jan 22 – 27


Slip into teh shoes of a 12 year old to do some interogations, Capcom’s most famous legal eagle, ink based fantasy, hand or be handed a beatdown and a couple of honourable mentions that just look a bit cool, yeah we know you aren’t going to get to play all of them. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting early with ‘Howl,’ launching first on PlayStation Monday before being available on the Epic Store Tuesday and Xbox on Wednesday (it is already out for the Switch). Not only does this game promise a mystical journey filled with choices and secrets, but it also boasts an incredible ink-style gameplay. Imagine every scene drawn from the night itself, where shadows and light play on your screen like a living canvas.

Court is in session, folks! The much-awaited ‘Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy’ is rolling out its legal drama starting this Wednesday on PlayStation. But the gavel doesn’t stop there – it’s coming to Nintendo Switch on Thursday, and then making a grand entrance on Xbox and Steam on Friday.

If gritty character driven investigation is more your thing, but you still want warm squishmallow type vibes in your games then Lil Guardsman might be your game of choice this week. Play as the 12 year old daughter of the gate guardsman filling in for her Dad while a wedding to merge two kingdoms is underway. If you can manage to successfully interrogate all 100+ unique characters to earn a perfect score. This is for every platform (yes all of them) on Wednesday.

Brace yourselves because the king of iron fist is back with a bang! This Friday, get ready to unleash some epic combos and experience jaw-dropping graphics as ‘Tekken 8’ hits PlayStation or if you have an Xbox/need it via Steam you will only have to wait until Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to the Pixel-perfect world of Dice of God, a turn based fighter which as you may have guessed uses dice. Dropping on Steam on Tuesday this has some Scott Pilgrim vs the World (the game) vibes about it while still being all about a fantasy adventure.

Also in honourable mentions for art styles we are into is Tardy coming to Xbox on Friday and PlayStation on Wednesday this has an air of Space Quest about it. It is already out on Steam  (and on Sale) if that is more of your jam but this is a point and click’ish type game with it being a little light on the adventure and more solve the puzzle in the room you are in to progress, but still has a lot of praise about it.

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
