The Week In Games: Outta This World

The Outer Worlds comes out this week. For many fans, this is the true follow-up to Fallout New Vegas they’ve been waiting for. But it isn’t the only big and exciting game coming out this week. Get ready folks, it’s a busy week!

I have constantly mixed up The Outer Worlds and Outer Wilds when talking about these games with other writers at Kotaku. It doesn’t help that they are both games set in space and both are part of Xbox Game Pass. One day my brain will get this figured out, but for now, I have to double-check if I’m referencing the right game every time I write about it.

As mentioned earlier, this is a busy week with games for everyone across all platforms. The Outer Worlds comes out this week, of course, but we also get some other big games. For wrestling fans, WWE 2K20 comes out this week. (Though that game sounds like a mess this year.) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare comes out this week too, with PS4 and Xbox One cross-play available right at launch. Wild! And for fans of remakes of old games, MediEvil comes out this week too for PS4.

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.

The Week In Games: Beware Of Ghosts

This week Ghost Recon Breakpoint releases, letting players explore a large open-world map as super tactical soldiers. If it is anything like the last game, it also means players will be able to cause all sorts of mayhem using vehicles and explosives.

I enjoyed the gameplay of the last Ghost Recon game, Wildlands, but the world felt so boring and the story never hooked me that I stopped about 60% of the way through. I’ve been tempted to go back and finish off the last leaders of the Cartel for a while now. Maybe I should do that before I play Breakpoint? Or maybe I’ll skip Breakpoint and never play Wildlands again! Who knows?

There’s more coming out this week beyond a new and big Ubisoft game. Warsaw looks like a cross between World War II and Darkest Dungeon. Destiny 2′s big new expansion drops this week, alongside the jump to Steam. And for Ghostbusters fans out there, that game from a few years back is being remastered for current-gen systems. I remember liking the first few hours of that game and hating the rest of it. Maybe I’ll like it more on new consoles?

The Week In Games: Are You Ready For Some Soccer?

This week one of the biggest new releases is FIFA 20, a game that I know almost nothing about. I know it has soccer in it and I also know that most places in the world call it football. But I already used that headline in a previous Week In Games post.

My favorite thing about the FIFA games is how they keep releasing on old consoles, even years after the console has stopped getting official support or other new games. Last year, FIFA 19 was released on Xbox 360 and PS3. Even more impressive is that FIFA 14 was released on the PS2 in 2013, though that was the last year FIFA appeared on the console. How long will FIFA keep releasing on PS4 and Xbox One after the new consoles? Take your bets now!

Beyond a big new soccer game, there is a bunch of ports. A huge list of RPGs are hitting Switch, including multiple ports of old and new Dragon Quest games. For fans of Star Wars, Jedi Knight II, one of the best Star Wars games ever made, releases for Switch and PS4 this week. And The Surge 2 hits Xbox One, PS4, and PC for fans of Dark Souls and robots.

The Week In Games: Duck… Duck… Untitled Goose Game!

Have you ever dreamed of being a goose who annoys people? Well, then you’ve probably already heard about Untitled Goose Game, which is coming out later this week. If you haven’t heard about it, well I’m happy to be the one to introduce you to your dream game.

When I about 8 years old, my brother, who was 6 years old and I loved the Muscovy ducks that would visit our home in Florida. They were very large and we thought they were geese. We would give them bread and try to pet them. Eventually, we decided we wanted one of these big ducks as a pet. So we lured it inside with bread and water. Then it shit all over the kitchen. Luckily, we had tile floors so it was easy to clean up. But my parents weren’t happy.

Beyond Untitled Goose Game, some other cool stuff is hitting the Switch. Zelda: Link’s Awakening looks wonderful and cute. Castle Crashers Remastered is also heading to the Switch. And if you look close you’ll spot another 3DS game releasing next week. Last week also had a 3DS game release. Is it the second coming for that popular portable console? Probably not.

The Week In Games: Loot And Shoot With Your Friends

After a long wait, the new Borderlands is finally coming out this week. Borderlands 3 is releasing Friday for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and bringing with it some ridiculous number of guns. Maybe too much loot, really?

Some folks call games like Borderlands 3 “shlooters.” This is a silly word, but it’s particularly strange for me. I’ve helped my father and others do floor covering installation and repair in my past. And one popular product in floor covering is called Schluter, an orange plastic sheet you lay underneath tile before installing. They are pronounced nearly the same way, and every single time someone says shlooter, I am reminded of installing shower tile.

Beyond Borderlands 3, Gears 5 is coming out for everyone later this week and all The Walking Dead games made by Telltale are being rereleased in one convenient package. For hockey fans, NHL 20 is almost here. NASCAR fans also have NASCAR Heat 4 dropping toward the end of the week. And if you look close, you’ll find a 3DS game lurking down there. A little something for everyone, it seems.

The Week In Games: Totally Rad

Yo, this upcoming week is totally tubular and rad. Like, you know it is just super rad. Very gnarly. Other 80s slang and phrases. Rad is coming out next week. I love the look of this game, but it doesn’t sound like it is very……rad. See what I did there? Moving on.

Next weekend I won’t be here. I will be out in the world, traveling the roads and stopping at fast food joints in other states and going “This is so weird but so familiar.” Truly this is a great country and the best way to experience it is on its highways. So next weekend you will be in the loving embrace of some other folks who are going to provide you with great content! I can’t wait to read it next week!

Beyond Rad, a few other things are coming out. But we are still in the middle of a summer drought when it comes to big games. Remnant: From The Ashes might have a generic name, but I’ve heard good things about it. The next episode of Life Is Strange 2 is coming out this week as well. And finally, Yui-Gi-Oh! Legacy Of The Duelist: Link Evolution wins this week’s award for “Longest Name.” Congrats and shout out to the heart of the cards!

The Week In Games: Jason Returns, Again

You can never really escape Jason Voorhees. The masked slasher from The Friday The 13th films is returning again this week. A new edition of The Friday The 13th game is heading to the Nintendo Switch.

I wonder if in 20 or 30 years people will still be making and watching Jason films. How many times can you reboot and remake this franchise? Is he even that scary anymore after spending decades being lampooned in cartoons, TV shows, and other films? It’s like the Xenomorphs from the Alien movies. At somepoint, these scray monsters become walking parodies of themselves.

A very quiet week for video game releases. There ain’t many big or small games releasing over the next 7 days. And look at that, on Tuesday the Vita gets another release. It seems the Vita ain’t quite dead just yet.

The Week In Games: Mr. President, Your Mech Is Ready

After years and years of being a Japan-only Xbox release, Metal Wolf Chaos is finally come out in more places later this week. Now we can all experience the fun of being the President of The United States and using a giant mech to fight the Vice President’s evil army.

This weekend has sucked due to some terrible acts of violence and hatred that happened over here in the US. So I don’t really have anything funny or interesting to add to this post. Sorry. My brain is just fried.

The week isn’t very exciting. Beyond Metal Wolf Chaos XD, it’s mostly ports and some smaller games. For superhero fans, DCUO is coming to the Switch and so too is Darksiders II.

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.
