The Week In Games: Play The Witcher 3 Anywhere You Want

The Witcher 3 comes to the Nintendo Switch this week, and Geralt is ready to go on dark RPG adventures with you on the subway, in an airplane, or even in a bathroom. What a world we live in.

I can’t imagine The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt on Switch will be the best way to play the game, but I have to give credit to the developers. Being able to even get that thing running on a Switch is impressive. Sure it might look like a bit rough and blurry, but they did it. Congrats!

Beyond The Witcher 3 hitting Switch this week, some other games are releasing, too. Not a busy week, for the most part. A small break before more games hit later this month. Overwatch also makes the jump to Switch this week and The Outer Wilds heads to PS4. There’s an Ice Age game coming out that looks like something you would play on PS2 back in the early 2000s. I’m…intrigued by that game.

Summer used to be pretty sleepy in the world of video games. It was mostly convenient: School is out, beaches are open, and there are dozens of reasons to venture out and get some time in the sun. You know what’s also great? Not going out, because it is, like Cole Porter said, too darn hot.

Good thing the summer games drought is a thing of the past these days. Look at all the stuff going on: Super Mario Maker 2, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers are all bringing the heat over the next few months.
