This Week In Games: Monsters Seeking Monsters

After the lull comes the flood. The post-E3 quiet period has begun to lift, with PC players getting the best of it this week: Monster Hunter World. This week also sees the release of We Happy Few after the game's ban and reclassification, while Dead Cells comes out of early access proper.

WW2 shooter fans will get Post Scriptum to play around with. It's a packed Week in Games.

  • Overcooked 2 (PC, PS4, XBO, Switch)
  • Runbow Deluxe Edition (PS4, XBO, Switch)
  • Hello Neighbour (PS4, Switch, iOS, Android)
  • Madden 19 (PS4, XBO)
  • We Happy Few (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Monster Hunter: World (PC)
  • Unavowed (PC)
  • Dead Cells (PC, PS4, Switch)
  • Flipping Death (PS4, PC, XBO, Switch)
  • Post Scriptum (PC)
  • Okami HD (Switch)
  • Hyper Universe (XBO)
  • TETRA's Escape (XBO)
  • In Between (Switch)
  • Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo (Switch)
  • Slam Land (PC, Switch)
  • Toby: The Secret Mine (Switch)
  • Unexplored (Switch)
  • Blob Cat (Switch)

So, We Happy Few. For those who didn't pick it up in early access originally - and have since discovered that you can't, after it was pulled from sale in February - here's the most recent story trailer to help ground you.

Fans of games that you have yelling at the TV / everyone else in the room may appreciate the Overcooked sequel, dropping at the end of the week. Key changes include the ability to toss ingredients, shift restaurants around, and a whole bunch of new recipes and levels to toy with.

We've spoken about Dead Cells plenty of late, so let's touch quickly on Post Scriptum. It's essentially targeting the oldschool Battlefield 1942 or Red Orchestra crowd, those who want a grittier spin on the modern Battlefield format, for lack of a better phrase. It's an interesting mix; here's some chunks of gameplay.

Last one for the day. Unavowed is an indie RPG/mystery where you end up joining a secret society after - stay with me here - a demon possesses your body and goes on a rampage through New York.

Certainly the weirdest game this week, anyway. Anything catch your eye?

    Gonna have to seriously consider Monster Hunter for PC, depending how reviews go. I've heard lots of crashing reports so that'll likely need patching. Not a huge fan of the series as a whole but this has full co-op which makes me much more interested.

      Not sure if they changed it from PS4, but when trying to CO OP campaign either person needs to have already completed the mission your about to do. Otherwise I don't think it works, but they could have changed that.

        Really? I've just read about it and most of what I read said it was only the starting quests you had to do have completed before you could co-op. It'd be a bit disappointing to have to repeat every other quest just to play co-op.

          PS4 player. All you have to do is watch any cinematic before you can get others to join.

            Yeah that was it. Still seems pretty obtuse why not just let people go through the whole thing together. Meh still a solid game though.

              It is pretty silly, especially Behemoth doesn't have this limitation (you'll even be in the hosts cutscene). But yeah, fun game. Just beat Tempered Kirin after getting back into the game.

      there was a crash bug that Capcom said they fixed but it uses denuvo so... it could already be a strike or it will be a strike because it eats CPU like no tomorrow

    MH: W for me too. Have been waiting patiently for this to drop on PC; was tempted a few times on PS4. Will go in once reviews drop and someone has matched the 20% deals that have been around for pre-orders. Time to see what the fuss is all about.

    I'll also be watching for reviews for Dead Cells, Okami (Switch), and We Happy Few. Okami (probably PC) will probably be a playthrough sometime down the line as I've been meaning to play that.

    I'm mostly interested in Flipping Death, which is by the same developer (and just as importantly, writer, for the silly humour) of Stick It To The Man

    Hmm. Both EB Games and JB Hi-Fi websites have We Happy Few as being released on Friday, 17 August.

      The physical release was delayed a week, possibly due to late production startup because of the ban and unban. Digital still releases this week

    MHW on PC. Can't wait to play the undisputed GOTY on my 1080Ti.

    Dead Cells is fantastic and I can't wait for the full release.
