This week, starting May 14, it’s time to head back in time to either an anthropomorphic apocalypse, an anatomically confounding experience or time and space defying noir cat burglar tale.

Our top pick of the week?
State of Decay 2
The original State of Decay was a sleeper hit that garnered a really large following. The slow pacer and more thoughtful approach compared to some of the more high adrenaline zombie shooters filled a gap in the market we didn’t realise we were missing.
With the sequel we’ll get to enjoy the one thing that was missing from the original and that is playing with our friends as we just try to make it through another day with our favourite survivor.
