Out this week: Deathloop, Cruis’n Blast, Aragami 2, SkateBird, Apsulov: End of Gods, Merek’s Market, I Am Fish, more

More? More games? If you’ve finished those you already own, then sure – we’re happy to oblige. Providing you promise you aren’t telling us a porky.

The PS5 gains another exclusive, in the form of Arkane’s Deathloop – a time loop involving eight-character assassinations, tasking you with breaking the cycle. After making sense of the situation, presumably. The game’s director has described it as an “inverted Cluedo.”

If you’re yet to pre-order, Amazon are throwing in a steel poster.

As per previous entries in the series, Cruis’n Blast is exclusive to a Nintendo platform. The Switch, in this case. Raw Fury has crammed the arcade behemoth into a tiny Switch cart, which is no easy feat. First impressions are that they’ve managed to pull off a faithful conversion, successfully managing to deliver some fast and frantic arcade thrills. Look out for a review soon.

We’ll also have reviews of Merek’s Market – a medieval teamwork/time management game similar to Overcooked – and the first-person feline simulator Catlateral Damage: Remeowstered.

SkateBird – aka Tiny Hawk – is finally out this week too. We recall playing a demo yonks ago. It looked promising back then, and chances are it has come leaps and bounds since.

Then there’s Aragami 2 – a promising ninja stealth adventure hitting Game Pass on launch – the colourful I Am Bread sequel I Am Fish, a re-release of one-on-one monster brawler Omen Of Sorrow, and the intriguing sci-fi viking adventure Apsulov: End of Gods.

Titan Chaser also piques our interest, involving tracking down colossal creatures and fending them off with a roof-mounted light source. Launching for under a fiver, it could end up being 2021’s best budget buy. We’ll keep you posted.
