The Week in Games
If you were forwarded this newsletter and you like it, you can subscribe here

Hi all!
Real life stuff means this is a slighter shorter issue this week I’m afraid, but there’s still plenty to chew on. This has been a week filled with events and game announcements, and you can find a round-up of the most interesting in the news section below. There’s also the usual round up of new and upcoming releases, and some excellent recommended reads that includes a brilliant feature on the making of Micro Machines by Keith Stuart for Read Only Memory.
I’d just like to say a quick hello to the new subscribers this week, and thanks those who have supported The Week in Games with a membership, by sharing it online, or just by reading this right now. This newsletter is completely reliant on shares and word of mouth, so your help and support is hugely appreciated.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Take care everybody!
NEWS
A special mention this week to the new issue of Edge and its most spectacular Cuphead cover and feature. You can buy it or subscribe by clicking below.
Edge
The story of Cuphead: how @StudioMDHR's love of antique animation and old-school arcade action created a modern phenomenon. Plus the world's first review of long-awaited expansion The Delicious Last Course. The new issue of Edge is out today. https://t.co/RRas01Z3xe https://t.co/1zcLGiDyaB
NEW RELEASES:
This week saw free next-gen updates to Capcom’s brilliant modern Resident Evil games. Res 2, 3, 7 and Village all received free updates that include 4K resolutions and ray tracing support, among other things.
Next week will see the release of next-gen versions of Deliver Us the Moon, which if you haven’t played it, is well worth a look. I actually reviewed it a while back and would recommend it to anybody after something a little bit different.

GAME OF THE WEEK
A randomly selected game each week! Any and all games are eligible for selection regardless of age, platform, popularity, or otherwise.
This week, the honour goes to…
Titanfall 2 (2016)
Following complaints of Titanfall’s lack of single-player options, Respawn Entertainment responded by launching its sequel with one of the most blisteringly polished and exhilarating shooter campaigns of recent times.
Incredibly responsive controls are combined with some truly ingenious level design to create a true modern classic.
