The Week In Games: Guacamole Potatoes

The Week In Games: Guacamole Potatoes

This week is all about trying to rival the Awesome Games Done Quick speedrunners with Guacamelee! 2 on Xbox One, and checking out the rootin’ tootin’ side-scroller shootin’ Gunman Clive when it comes out on Switch.

A new year brings with it new games, and though January sadly won’t give us the new Animal Crossing, it does give us a beautiful exploration game, and… could that be a PS Vita game on the 15th?

Neglected consoles aside, you should check out Vane, a game about a kid that turns into a bird with Journey and Last Guardian vibes.

We’ve been waiting a long time to get our hands on it. Planet RIX-13 might be of interest to anyone itching for a ‘90s-style adventure game, and Smoke and Sacrifice is an interesting take on the survival open-world genre with some amazingly detailed hand-drawn art.

Then, of course, there’s Guacamelee! 2, the punishingly tough platformer that gave me RSI.

And so it is, with a twinge of painful memories in my heart and my wrist, that I direct your attention to some of the games coming out next week:
