This week, starting November 19, things slow down a little with only one major AAA release but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do. Playing with a pelican, becoming a ninja in space or smashing blocks to the beat there is certainly something to peak your interest.
So let’s jump in and have a look at what’s coming out this week.

“Enter mankind’s greatest conflict with Battlefield V as the series goes back to its roots in a never-before-seen portrayal of World War 2.

Our top pick of the week?
If you’ve been listening to our show then you’ve most likely heard how excited Elliot and I are for Beat Sabre to be coming to the PSVR. An addictively good time with a striking visual style. It’s rare that we can say we are pumped for a rhythm game, let alone a rhythm game reliant on motion control…but I guess that day has finally arrived. Consider us pumped.
