This Week in Games: Feb 26 – Mar 2


The next chapter in a FF Remake Trilogy, return to a classic Star Wars FPS, Learn world history through Cricket and It Takes Two developers remasters their first big title – yep it is a lot of history this week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting with the big title for the week with Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth coming to the PlayStation on Wednesday. If you are a diehard FF fan you are probably already waiting for this but if not this is the second in a planned trilogy coming from the FF VII Remake that was released in 2020. The latest title continues with you controlling Cloud Strike in a title that offers more real-time exploration and combat to give a more open-ended overworld in comparison to the more linear city in Rebirth.

Almost one for an honourable mention with one of the earliest FPS being remastered and coming to Xbox, Nintendo Switch and via Steam this Thursday (with PlayStation presumably not far behind). Building on the legacy of games like Wolfenstein and Doom this was the first Star Wars FPS and the dawn of the Jedi Knight series.

Finally brush up on your world history on Saturday through the only lens that matters – Cricket. Coming from Devolver Digital and a developer out of Cape Town (not Australia, we know the gall) this tells the story of world events from the Dinosaurs to the Space Race through circket and ragdoll physics. Get it on the Nintendo Switch and via Steam. on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to some great coop and we are not talking about Helldivers 2 with Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons remake coming to Xbox, PlayStation and Steam this Thursday. While most will know the developer from It Takes Two this was the first game that really made it happen as you guide two brothers in 2 player coop.

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
