This Week in Games: May 6 – 11

Embark on a rampage of vengeful home booby-trapping, manage a cozy life as a centuries-old vampire barista, puzzle your way out of a sinking cruise ship, navigate the dreariness of corporate bureaucracy, and dive into a global battle royale version of Pac-Man—all coming to a screen near you this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting on Monday for your week in gaming stay toxic and become the Girlfriend from Hell when it drops on Steam. This 2D cartoon style sees you going Home Alone on your lover who did not want to marry you.

Do you like Stardew Valley but wish you had a game loop where you were a 500 year old vampire? On Wednsday Brocula  drops for Xbox to give you exactly that. Releasing last year for Steam this is new to Xbox this week and falls more in the cozy game where you take on odd jobs like working at the coffee shop than being a predator of the night.

If you are a fan of The Poseidon Adventure (or even that episode of Doctor Who with Kylie Minogue) the Gift might be for you. Coming out on Thursday for Xbox, the Switch and via Steam you wake up on a luxury cruise liner that is sinking and must escape or meet your Leonardo DiCaprio’esque end as you complete puzzles while the waters rise.

And lastly for Friday, and also in the previously released on Steam list is CorpoNation: The Sorting Process coming to Xbox and the Nintendo Switch. This one falls more in the administrative story style of gaming like Papers Please, but with capitalism as you go through the mundane day to day of being a lab drone for your corporate overlords.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a class with PAC-MAN Mega Tunnel Battle: Chomp Champs specifically coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox as well as via Steam on Thursday. Imagine the original Pac-Man arcade… now imagine it as connected to every other Pac-Man arcade and then also that it is battle royale. Yes, this is online massively connected Maze Pac-Man or the best version for any super competitive Pac-Man player.

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
