This Week In Games: Firewatch. Firewatch. Firewatch.

Firewatch is coming out this week? What?

Really? But I haven't done my hair. I haven't put a face on! Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god! Do you think Firewatch will notice me?

Firewatch is sooooooo cute!

Assassin's Creed: Chronicles (Xbox One/PS4)

What is it? It's a 2.5D side-scroller. Yeah one of those Assassin's Creed games. Should you care? Probably not.

Dying Light: The Following (Xbox One/PS4/PC)

What is it? Dying Light gets a fairly significant chunk of DLC. Should you care? This is sort of Far Cry style stuff. So yeah, you should care. Particularly if you were a fan of the original game.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight (3DS)

What is it? The 'Fafnir' knight? Seriously. Should you care? Apparently this is pretty decent. But yeah, not my cup of tea.

Firewatch (PS4/PC)

What is it? Oh my god. It's the game I've been waiting for. So excited for this oh my god. Should you care? This first-person adventure game looks pretty spectacular. So keen on this.

The Legend Of Legacy (3DS)

What is it? The Legend of Legacy might be the most JRPG name for a video game ever. Should you care? Apparently a pretty mediocre JRPG. Not terrible, not essential.

Unravel (Xbox One/PS4/PC)

What is it? Oh man, how did I forget this. Unravel looks awesome. It's a game about emotions and people feeling stuff. Should you care? Yes. Absolutely. Cannot wait for this.

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


    Is the PS4 version of Firewatch out this week, too? For some reason I thought it was coming along later after the PC version.

    Shit, I'm still playing MGS5 and Life Is Strange. I guess that's another one for the backlog.

      So glad I'm not the only one still playing MGS5. I'm close to the end, but I just can't stop sneaking and stealing dudes. I'm not even doing missions.

        That's my problem... the missions always seem to take ages, so I tend to just go and spend 15 minutes doing side ops instead. I suspect this will mean I'll end up getting sick of the game well before I finish it, though :(

      Are you me? Currently playing Metal Gear Solid and Life Is Strange and wanting to play Firewatch (and maybe Unravel) today as soon as I get home despite this.

    Legend of Legacy actually came out last week, although it was on Saturday so people may not have noticed. Also out this week:

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (PS4)
    Unraveled (PS4)
    We are Doomed (Vita)
    Terraria (3DS)
    Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (PS4/PC)
    EDF 4.1 (PS4)
    EDF 2 ( Vita)
    MegaDimension Neptunia VII (PS4)
    Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (PC)

      EDF!! EDF!!

      Thats awesome

      BTW - how does article Author miss so many titles? Some of the titles you mentioned here aren't small fry

        I think they only get retail releases and whatever is coming out on Steam, for PS4, Xbox One and WiiU they are completely clueless

      I can't find any local retailers who are selling EDF 4.1. Are you just talking about the American release?

      Arslan, you say? I'm very intrigued. I never even knew this was a thing ...

    So firewatch has pretty sunsets and lots of trees. It also has a radio.

    But the way it has been revered for what seems like half a decade, does that extend to the gameplay? What IS firewatch?

      This x1000.
      I know what it is, but I have no idea what it is.

    Been following Firewatch really closely ever since I heard of it. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Hope it's as good and mysterious as the 15 - 20 mins demo I watched shows.

    Too much good stuff is out. I barely 'finished' The Witness. Halp!

    Woot such a good week this week, the Following on Wednesday and Deadpool on Thrusday

    Are unravel and firewatch out tomorrow??

      Where is firewatch in the store? Cant see ANYTHING on it. Is this going to be like gone home? This is shit

        If you're talking about the PS4 store, I tweeted the devs asking the same thing and they replied with "No preload on PS4 unfortunately but it'll be up there on the 9th! (midday-ish Pacific time)"

          Sweet thanks for that, seems odd a game that's got a lot of interest isnt up for pre load :(

            Yeah I know! I wanted to play it as soon as it launched :(

          Am I right in thinking that's the morning of the 10th for Australia?

    Digimon Cyber Sleuth

    Or was that adt week?

      It came out on the Aus PS store a couple days ago, so far its pretty damn good.
      A little too unexplained when raising digimons, but will work it out eventually i imagine

        I ordered the Vita cart from playasia, mines in the post, can't wait!

      What is this Digimon game Jimu? Is it like Pikachu Detective lol?

        Nooooo Nooope no no no. No.


    The Legend of Legacy might be the most JRPG name for a video game ever

    Nah; I like The Legend of the Dragon Crystal Legacy better.

    We're all super excited for Unravel.
