With the embargo on God of War lifting this past week, it’s hard to think about anything else. It’s been eight years since Kratos’ epic conclusion within Greek mythology — plenty of time to grow in power, whether that be through fatherhood or decapitation. The Norse gods better be prepared.

If manhandling your way through mythological beings with some fists and a boomerang-ax doesn’t strike a chord, there are some more…peaceful options coming this week. Nintendo Labo drops alongside God of War this Friday, offering a handful of lighthearted projects to construct with friends and family before playing the included game(s). The cardboard peripherals include fishing rods, pianos, robot bodysuits — you name it. Its absurdity is matched only by its creativity; I’m (more) excited (than I should be) to get my hands on this.

Don’t Starve gets its Mega Pack release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, including the original game, Don’t Starve Together, and expansions Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. The Yakuza series continues to ride a wave of popularity with Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Switch owners are treated to Wild Guns Reloaded, a throwback to an early interpretation of the shooter genre. Gunhouse, on the other hand, takes a wildly different approach.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
