This Week In Games: A Flying Anthem

Some know it as fate, but for others it is the will of God. That's the decision amongst new games this week - have you been convinced by Anthem's wiles, or will you take a portal to another world?

STEINS;GATE ELITE and Kiryu's remastered adventures in Yakuza Kiwami are probably the biggest major non-Anthem titles this week, but there's also a neat mix of indie and not-quite-indie-but-not-quite-AAA games on the roster. Galactic Civilizations 3 gets a major expansion this week, and RTS fans ware being served by the medieval-fantasy strategy Bannermen.

(For those wondering why Anthem's being mentioned twice, it's because of the whole pay-for-an-early-release thing. You can read more about that here.)

Here's what's out this week:

  • Riot: Civil Unrest (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Anthem (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Aragami (Switch)
  • Yakuza Kiwami (PC)
  • STEINS;GATE; Linear Bounded Phenogram (PC)
  • Bannermen (PC)
  • Galactic Civilizations 3: Retribution (PC)
  • Devotion (PC)
  • Hellink (PC)
  • BlazeRush (Switch)
  • Trine 2 (Switch)
  • I Wanna Fly (Switch)
  • Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight (Switch)
  • Qube 2 (Switch)
  • Death end reQuest (PS4)
  • The Journey Down Trilogy (Switch)
  • Devil Engine (PC, Switch)
  • CLASH - Battle Arena! (PC)
  • RemiLore (Switch)
  • X-Morph: Defense (Switch)

Not as stacked as previous weeks, and potentially not as flashy either. Let's begin with STEINS;GATE ELITE, which people keep telling me is an amazing VN series that I really need to play.

A quieter one, then. See anything that catches your eye?


    I lied last week, February does hold some titles I'm interested in. Death End reQuest has my interest because despite my luke warm feelings toward Compile Heart in general the story is up my alley. I'm also debating Stein;Gate Elite because I've heard it's not quite as good on the whole as compared to the original but I'm definitely getting Linear Bounded Phenogram.

    Cool, looking forward to Steins;Gate and also Yakuza.

    I have a PC and now there are two Yakuza games on it. Where should I start with the series?

      Yakuza 0, it's a prequel to the series, and then Kiwami which is the remake of Yakuza 1.


    Biowares last hope after andromeda

    I'm picturing 6/10 at absolute best

    Eb still has 7 day returns dont they ....

    Nothing for me here, potential next purchase will be Trials: Rising, as long as it gets "more of the same" reviews. Not looking for a revolution there!
