This week in gaming: Dive into pixel noir mysteries, get nostalgic with LCD retro vibes, rev engines in top-tier bike racing, and pirate the high seas on a new console. Short, sweet, and loaded with action! But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting Tuesday we cannot go past some side scrolling pixel adventure with you taking on the role of John Cooper a private detective taking on his last case to find a missing girl from the upper crust in the lowest parts of the city planet of Terrahive. A little pixel, a lot of atmosphere and not a finite path to playthrough got this catching our eye when it drops first via Steam.

Jump back to an era pre-Gameboy with LCD game watches and more for the Fall of Elena Temple. A pretty simple looking game that is no doubt going to sucker you in this is the perfect game for playing on the Nintendo Switch when it released on Tuesday for on the go but if you are an Xbox owner you can also check it out on Wednesday.

If you are a fan of the MotoGP series then you do not need to know what to expect from this year’s instalment MotoGP 24. If you are not familar this is 2 wheel racing at it’s finest with the latest tracks and racers. You can hit the grid for PlayStation, Nintendo Switch or via Steam this Thursday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention goes to the first Xbox Exclusive title now making it’s way to PlayStation with the Pirate soaked Sea of Thieves coming out on Tuesday. This one has been on Xbox for a while now but now PlayStation owners will get to get in touch with their own inner salty dog of the high seas with a significant amount of content ready to play.

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
