Out this week: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, Air Twister, Dungeons 4, The Man Who Erased His Name, Tintin Reporter, more

This year’s Call of Duty seems to be riling up the fanbase, with Modern Warfare III‘s file size clocking in at an Xbox Series S debilitating 234.9GB, no Platinum Trophy on PS5, a campaign that lasts under four hours, and intrusive adverts appearing on the Xbox dashboard. IGN wasn’t impressed by the campaign at all, handing out a sub-par 4/10 while suggesting the franchise needs a gap year.

Hilariously, it’s likely the rest of this week’s releases clock in at less than 234.9GB combined – and there’s some promising stuff on the horizon. SEGA’s back with Football Manager 2024 and the spin-off title Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, which as you may have heard, was created in just six months. This combat-focused action adventure reveals why Kazuma Kiryu faked his own death and abandoned his name. Although reportedly short, it should tide fans over until Infinite Wealth.

The Man Who Erased His Name

On the subject of SEGA, Yu Suzuki’s Air Twister leaves Apple Arcade behind and heads to consoles – with this being a spiritual successor to the arcade juggernaut Space Harrier. A few other retro revivals are upon us too, including surprise re-releases of Double Dragon Advance and Super Double Dragon, along with Atari’s Berzerk: Recharged. Atari only recently acquired the Berzerk rights – and this is the first new iteration since the ‘80s.

Another spiritual successor arriving this week is Dungeons 4, a homage to Bullfrog’s Dungeon Keeper. Although four entries in, we imagine it has some of its own DNA by now. Then there’s the sci-fi adventure The Invincible, PSVR2 duo Kill It With Fire VR and Happyfunland, the accomplished looking Tintin Reporter – Cigars of the Pharaoh, expanded sequel Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, and the “cosy roguelike” Spells & Secrets.

And if you’re looking for something a little different, here are two to try. Bem Feito is an offbeat life sim based around a faux ‘80s game with ‘creepypasta’ elements, while Excessive Trim sees a weed-smoking alien tearing up turf (and humans) in a buzzsaw UFO.
