The Week In Games: Once Again, It’s Time To Kill Some Nazis

It feels like only yesterday that I played through the last Wolfenstein game and now a new one is almost here. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a smaller spin-off starring BJ’s two daughters. I can’t wait to kill some Nazis during the 80s.

I’m still impressed that this game, like the last Wolfenstein title, is coming to Switch. I’ll never play those games on Switch, the performance is just too rocky for me, but it is still incredible those games run at all on what is basically a tablet.

Beyond Wolfenstein, a few big ports and new games are dropping this week. A new Fire Emblem is coming to Switch, Beyond: Two Souls is hitting the PC and Tetris Effect jumps from the PS4 to your computer. And for folks wanting to play Wargroove on their PS4, this is a good week for you. Sadly, no crossplay though. Come on, Sony. Quit being dumb.

The Week In Games: Avengers And Everyone Else, Assemble!

The Avengers, their friends and some of their foes are hitting the Switch this week with the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Pick your favorite hero and argue with your friends who is getting stuck playing with the right Joycon.

I really loved that first Ultimate Alliance game. Played a lot of it back in the day on 360. Never really got into the second game as much, for whatever reason. But that first game was great. Do you remember that section where you play classic Activision games, like Pitfall? And all the different endings and Easter eggs. Hope this new game is as fun as that first one.

For fans of European truck racing, lucky you. FIA European Truck Racing Championship is coming out later next week for multiple platforms.

The Week In Games: The Doctor Will See You Now

Dr. Mario has fired his brother, Dr. Luigi, and now has control over the clinic once more and he is ready to start giving people pills. So many pills. Dr. Mario World for phones is coming out later this week.

I don’t think Mario is qualified to be a doctor, and I don’t think Luigi is any more qualified, either. What I want to know is, who in the Mario universe is actually qualified to be a doctor? Wario? Bowser? Peach? Toad? I think we can safely say Yoshi is not doctor material.

Beyond a new Dr. Mario game, next week has a few other things releasing for various platforms. It is still summer time out there, so we are still in the quiet season for video game releases. Dragon Quest Builders 2 comes out next week, God Eater 3 comes to Switch and for those of us who love puzzles, but don’t want to actually put together a real puzzle, Bepuzzled Jigsaw Puzzle: Aquatic drops at the end of the week on Steam.

The Week In Games: If You Ain’t Outta Control, You Ain’t-A Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot and his crew are racing on to consoles soon when Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled releases later this week. Just remember: Speed kills, but you can always respawn.

So when do we see a new Crash Bandicoot game? Not a remake of older games, but a brand new platformer using the new art style seen in these newest games in the franchise. Seems like we can’t be more than a year or two away from a big new Crash Bandicoot game. If I have a suggestion, just name it Crash 4 and keep making more traditional platformers. We don’t need a new open world Crash game.

Beyond Crash Team Racing, a nice selection of games are coming out this week. Still mostly quiet, but you can feel the gaming industry starting to come out from their E3 bunkers, blinking at the sun and ready to release some stuff. Just in time for Summer, Vacation Simulator hits PSVR on PS4 this week, My Friend Pedro looks like a bunch of crazy fun and comes out later this week too. And for fans of Castlevania looking for something new, well you probably already know that Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night comes out soon for most platforms.

The Week In Games: Convoy!

Weird. Not much coming out this week. It is almost like some giant gaming event is sucking away everyone’s attention. Hmmm… Weird.

I wonder if we will get any surprise game releases during E3? You know, those moments when a person walks onto a stage, teases a game and then goes “It’s out now!” or “It’s coming out tomorrow!” I would love to see a company do it differently one time. Come out, show a cool game and then go “It’s been out for like four days, but you all didn’t know because we didn’t promote or anything.”

While this is a mostly dead week, thanks to E3, there are a few interesting releases. A new state comes to American Truck Simulator. Blaster Master Zero makes its way to PC later this week and for Leisure Suit Larry fans I guess you get a new game this week too. There must be Leisure Suit Larry fans out there, right? Someone is buying these games.

The Week In Games: Say, That’s A Nice Bike

A quiet week. E3 is getting closer and closer and as usual, game releases are slowing down during this time of the year. But for you fans of fast motorcycles, the season is just starting! MotoGP 19 is out later this week for most platforms. Vroom vroom! Or whatever noise a motorcycle going that fast makes.

What’s cooler? A dirtbike doing sick stunts or a fast street bike going REALLY, REALLY fast? I’m going to lean more towards the dirtbike. If you can pull off a backflip on a dirtbike, you will probably never need to do anything else. Just show up to the X Games, flip a few times and walk away with some sponsors or maybe even a mobile game.

Beyond speedy bikes, a bunch of stuff is coming to your gaming PC this week. Journey, once a PlayStation only game, will soon be playable on your desktop rig of choice. Also, a game called Just Sleep, which sounds wonderful. And finally, Slay The Spire jumps to the Switch. I know folks are excited about that one!

The Week In Games: Inglorious Void Bastards

Sometimes a game just looks so damn cool you want to play it and Void Bastards is one of those games. It just looks incredible. Like an old comic book and a first-person shooter got together, had a baby and raised it in space. Also, that name is great.

The days are getting hotter, May is winding down and Summer is almost here. This tends to be a quieter period of the year for game releases and this week seems to follow this trend. But some cool stuff is coming out this week. Layers Of Fear 2 comes out later this week, for folks who like scary games.

The Week In Games: Race Together, Die Alone

Get ready to go fast! Team Sonic Racing is speeding into stores this week for all major platforms. Our own Mike Fahey enjoyed the game, calling it “…a very good kart racer with a game-changing co-op twist.”

So we are getting a new kart racer featuring Sonic and then in June another kart racer starring Crash Bandicoot. Are kart racers coming back in a big way? That would be cool. The previous Sonic kart racer was fun and Mario Karts are always a good time. I’d love to see more kart racers from more franchises. Maybe it’s time for a new Super Bombad Racing?

Beyond Team Sonic Racing, a whole bunch of other stuff is coming out this week. For Resident Evil fans, get ready. RE4, RE0 and REmake are coming to Switch this week. I can’t wait to buy RE4, again. Also Sometimes to Deal with the Difficulty of Being Alive, I Need to Believe There Is a Possibility That Life Is Not Real wins the award for the longest title this week. Congratulations, you odd looking game.
