If you own a Switch, you'll be very happy with what's on offer this week. Two massive third-party games are filling up the eShop: the arrival of the Crash Bandicoot trilogy, which also drops on PC and the Xbox, and Wolfenstein 2.

If you're not worried about what ports the Switch is getting, there's stuff for you too: Dontnod's next adventure drops in the form of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Ubisoft's open-world racer The Crew gets a sequel, and Xbox fans can finally play Nier: Automata. (Although you might need a VPN.)


It's been six months since Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus launched for PC, Xbox One and PS4. This sequel to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order appeared during a tense time in US politics, promoted and released while racism and white nationalism were at the forefront of Americans' minds. Here's how things have gone six months later.


Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus' trio of DLC, The Freedom Chronicles, came to a close yesterday. The third episode's generic title, "The Deeds of Captain Wilkins", is apt. This short DLC is forgettable and uninteresting.


One of the best features of the rebooted Wolfenstein games has been its likeable cast of characters. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was full of complex resistance fighters with different experiences and opinions to hero BJ Blazkowicz. The game's new downloadable content explores the lives of other people who live and die in the alternate Nazi-controlled US '60s. Wolfenstein without BJ is still fun, but it's not as impactful.


As with the first Wolfenstein, New Colossus shows that there are few studios out there who get singleplayer FPS quite like MachineGames does. A big part of that is down to their focus not just on the shooting, but on the world you're shooting your way through.


The biggest week in the 2017 gaming calendar is finally here. On top of all the indies that are launching just ahead of PAX, October 27 brings The Big Three: a new Mario game in the form of Super Mario Odyssey, Bethesda's ode to Nazi-killing in Wolfenstein 2, and the return of Assassin's Creed. And Destiny 2 finally comes to PC. Strap in, people.
