This Week In Games: The Ridiculously Good Looking Project Cars

Project Cars has suffered a number of delays, but it finally comes out this week and is sure melt eyeballs and hearts.

Pretty sure it's going to be my goto when it comes time to check out new TVs/monitors -- and I don't even like driving simulators!

But it's not just about Project Cars this week. We also have Wolfenstein: The New Blood, the latest Kirby game and a host of interesting indie games on Steam. Pretty decent week.


High Strangeness (PC)

What is it? Man this is so cool. It's a 12-bit adventure. What the hell does that mean? It's a video game in two dimensions: a 16-bit dimension and an 8-bit dimension. You have to switch between the two to solve puzzles. Should you care? One of the most interesting high concepts ever. Super keen to check it out.


Kirby and The Rainbow Paintbrush (Wii U)

What is it? I'd completely forgotten about this one. It's another ridiculously cute Kirby game. Should you care? I'm keen. I need more games I can play when my son is around!


Project Cars (Xbox One/PS4/PC)

What is it? It's the ridiculously good looking car racing game. Should you care? Car enthusiasts have been waiting for this for a long, long time. I'm getting it just to look longingly at it. No other reason.


Snakebird (PC)

What is it? It looks like a puzzle game of sorts. Should you care? Seems cute. Probably the kind of game you need to play to understand or get a feel for it.


Sym (PC)

What is it? A puzzle platformer that explores social anxiety disorder. Should you care? This looks interesting and intense.


TERA (PC)

What is it? It's a new MMO with a new approach to combat. Should you care? People seem to like it, particularly that new approach to combat thing.


The Music Machine (PC)

What is it? A narrative-focused horror game with a unique art style. Should you care? Looks beautiful actually.


Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (PC)

What is it? Hey it's that DLC for the Wolfenstein game everyone loved. Should you care? Apparently it's really cool.


Did we miss anything? What are you all picking up this week?

    You need to be more enthused for Wolfenstein Mark

      I don't really know what that is....Haven't played The New Order yet.

        New Order was easily top 3 last year in games for me, and definitely the best FPS I've played in a long, long time. Really shows that a good single player story still does exist in the FPS genre when the team making it isn't rushed/pushed/forced to shove in multiplayer.

          Yeah it's next on my list. Just got to platinum The Last Of Us Remastered first :)

    Very interested in Project Cars but think I might hold out a bit. Racers haven't had a good run lately.

      Have you checked out the new Dirt game that just came out on Steam? From what I've seen of it, it looks like a really solid game.

    Project cars this week. Haha, unless you ordered the special edition through EB, there stock got flood damaged :(

      What?!?!

    Got Wolfenstein: The Old Blood preordered for X1 might stay up until midnight to have a quick jam..... and regret it the second my alarm clock goes off at 6:45am for work

    Finally! Can't wait for Thursday.

    Might get Kirby too.

    Preloading Wolfenstein right now. Get hype!

    Come on Mark! Please just say Witcher 3 is coming out this week already! I'm dying over here!

    Hasn't TERA been out for a year or so already? pretty sure I played it for about a week before getting fed up with the latency issues in what is a very real time combat take on an MMO

      That's what I'm thinking. It must just be a new update/expansion then.

        Its the steam release of the game - Also is coming with a new gunner class apparently.

    I'm just glad Australia is getting a retail disc of W:TOB - part of the reason I enjoyed the previous one so much was because I didn't have to spend longer than its playtime trying to download it!

    I feel like I'm the only one holding off on PCARS due to already having Assetto Corsa...

    I don't get it - why is there never any love for Assetto Corsa on this site?? It's freakin' incredible.

    Edit: Lol - comment above :)

    Without doubt Assetto Corsa is excellent! it's my go-to sim racer. I am going to get Pcars though because I've been romanced by the hype (there's no sense in lying to you), have to admit though the complete cars list and lack of heaps of main manufacturers is a little underwhelming, no details on multiplayer so close to launch is concerning as well, but none the less, take my money...

    This is the first time I've seriously thought about buying a steering wheel.
