PCs, handhelds, mobile, console, indies, triple A, free-to-play — the gaming scene gets more diverse and difficult to follow by the day, but, thankfully, I’m here every week to guide you through what’s happening with games.
As always, I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…
This Week’s Shiny Open World Game
Mad Max (PC, Xbox One & PS4, Sept. 1)
It probably won’t be quite as good as Mad Max: Fury Road (how could it be?), but the long-in-development Mad Max video game looks like it captures the anarchic spirit of the series. Cruise around the bleak, post-apocalyptic in your customized Pursuit Special and beat the life out of war boys and other assorted freaks. Sounds like a lovely day of gaming to me.
