So we're finally done with the Switch, and we're halfway through January. The quiet period is almost over. And while there's no major releases this week, there are plenty of intriguing indies coming out.
Who knows what the gaming industry will look like whenever Fumito Ueda's next game comes out. Will we have moved on from consoles entirely? Who knows.
Either way, The Last Guardian is finally here. And while it's far from the only major release this week, it's easily the one people have been waiting the longest for. But there's actually quite a few interesting games out, from a VR take on Werewolf to 3DS JRPGs to a Space Hulk FPS.
How long have you been waiting for a new Final Fantasy that wasn't an MMO? Years?
Well, wait no longer. Final Fantasy 15 is out this week. But that's not all - it's also a cracker of a week for the 3DS, Steins;Gate 0 is available, Watch Dogs 2 hits the PC, and there's some intriguing smaller titles to boot. Welcome to the last major week of the year.
It's a special edition of This Week in Games ... well, because it's Tuesday instead of Monday. Public holiday and all that.
That aside, there are still plenty of new titles to capture the imagination this week. Reminiscing with mobsters, remastered Rocksmiths, bastards, vikings, bro shooters and more.
There's not a great deal in terms of big name titles this week, but then it is the final week of August.
But the amount of time you could spend with those big games? Well, that's another story entirely. Especially if that game happens to be the new World of Warcraft expansion. And there's a ton of weird indies, too.
