This Week In Games: The Residents Of Raccoon City

It’s time to give Jill a hand again.

Resident Evil 3 is the out and out star of the week. It’s been just over a year since Capcom dropped their smashing remake of Resident Evil 2, and based off the demo – and all the copies of the game that broke street date in FranceRE3 is shaping up real well.

It’ll be fun to see if Capcom lets this game out the door early, too, given what’s been happening with releases over the last week. Hell, Persona 5: Royal was supposed to be the other major title – or maybe the biggest – but thanks to EB Games and JB Hi-Fi, plenty of Aussies have already gotten their hands on the game.

Beyond that, there’s a few interesting indies. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord finally hits early access this week, and In Other Waters looks intriguing for those who love puzzlers.

Here’s the leaderboard for the last week of March and the first few days of April:

  • Resident Evil 3 | PC, PS4, Xbox
  • Zombie Army Trilogy | Switch
  • Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord | PC
  • Persona 5 Royal | PS4 (digitally; retail already out)
  • The Complex | PC, Switch, Xbox
  • In Other Waters | PC, Switch
  • Victory and Glory: The American Civil War | PC
  • Operencia: The Stolen Sun | Switch, PC
  • Good Company | PC
  • Mazm Jekyll & Hyde | Switch
  • Totally Reliable Delivery Service | PC, Xbox, Switch
  • Wurroom | Switch
  • Curious Expedition | Switch
  • Snakeybus | Switch
  • Drift Zone Arcade | Switch

Onto the trailers. Zero brownie points for guessing what’s going to lead the pack this week.

Obviously it’s an interactive movie.

Neat mix of games across the board; The Complex could be really interesting to play with family as an Until Dawn style experience, or streamed online.

See anything you like this week? Besides Resident Evil 3?
