Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! The winter weather is fully here and to me, that means its gaming season as nothing is better than sitting next to a radiator, gaming the evening away! On this note, I spent my gaming time last weekend playing mostly games in the evenings with a bit of COD, FIFA, Death Stranding and a touch of Mario and Sonic in there too. Reviews for the latter two games should be dropping later this week alongside our views on Luigi’s Mansion 3 and COD Modern Warfare. Plenty of content to come then this week as we get ever closer to the big Pokémon launch on Friday! In terms of gaming news, we heard about Stadia’s launch titles and my word are they disappointing, not that I’m actually going to be using the service but still, they’re not doing themselves any favours! Death stranding is apparently too difficult for some people and aside from that, people are still complaining about COD (myself included) and people are hyped for Pokémon this week! Speaking of Pokémon, it’s time for Out This Week!

Out this week

Pokémon Sword and Shield – Switch Exclusive – November 15th

A whole new Pokémon RPG adventure awaits in Pokémon Sword. In this all new adventure, you’ll encounter new and familiar Pokémon as you catch, battle, and trade Pokémon while exploring new areas and uncovering an all-new story.

Meet your first partner Pokémon Your adventure in Pokémon Sword begins when you choose one of three new Pokémon: Grookey- A mischievous Grass type Chimp Pokémon that is full of boundless curiosity. Scorbunny - A Fire type Rabbit Pokémon that is always running about, bursting with energy. Sobble- A somewhat timid Water type Lizard Pokémon that shoots out attacks as it hides itself in the water.

Introducing the Galar Region Pokémon Swordwill be set in Galar, an expansive region with many environments—idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. The people and Pokémon live together in this region, and they’ve worked together to develop the industries here. You’ll visit the various Gyms in the Galar region, aiming for the enviable and admirable title of Champion!

Check out the natural beauty of the Wild Area The Wild Area is a vast expanse of land in the Galar region with untamed wilderness. While in the Wild Area, players can control the camera to explore the vast areas around them and search for Pokémon and items. Trainers will find a greater variety of Pokémon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region.

Participate in Max Raid Battles with other Trainers Max Raid Battles are a new battle format that takes place in the Wild Area, in which the player will team up with three other Trainers to take on a wild Dynamax Pokémon. Trainers will then get a chance to catch the wild Dynamax Pokémon if they manage to defeat it—but it won’t go down easily.

Pokémon become huge with Dynamax Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokémon can take on gigantic appearances during battle, and it’s an integral part of Pokémon battles in the region. All the moves of a Dynamax Pokémon will turn into special Max Moves!

The Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta These are the Legendary Pokémon that will be featured in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. They are shrouded in mystery and are even unknown to those who live in the Galar region. ZACIAN - Zacian attacks so gracefully that its movements can even captivate its opponents. It holds what appears to be a sword in its mouth. ZAMAZENTA - Zamazenta’s regal and majestic movements overwhelm any opponents that dare face it. Its body is covered in what seems to be a shield.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – PS4, Xbox One – November 15th (Deluxe Edition Available)

This narratively-driven single player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities, and master the art of the iconic lightsaber - all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.

While mastering your abilities, players will engage in cinematically-charged lightsaber and Force combat designed to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles as seen in the films. Players will need to approach enemies strategically, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path. Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear, and enemies while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars.

As part of this authentic Star Wars story, fans will delve into a galaxy recently seized by the Empire. As a Jedi hero-turned-fugitive, players will need to fight for survival while exploring the mysteries of a long-extinct civilization all in an effort to rebuild the remnants of the Jedi Order as the Empire seeks to erase the Jedi completely. Cinematic, Immersive Combat Jedi: Fallen Order delivers the fantasy of becoming a Jedi through its innovative lightsaber combat system striking, parrying, dodging - partnered with a suite of powerful Force abilities you'll need to leverage to overcome obstacles that stand in your way. This combat system is intuitive to pick up, but takes training and practice to fully master its nuances as you gain new powers and abilities along your adventure.

A New Jedi Story Begins As a former Padawan on the run from the Empire, you must complete your training before Imperial Inquisitors discover your plan to revive the Jedi Order. Aided by a former Jedi Knight, a cantankerous pilot, and a fearless droid, you must escape the evil machinations of the Empire in a story-driven adventure. Explore and overcome a wide range of challenges focused on combat, exploration, and puzzle-solving.

The Galaxy Awaits Ancient forests, windswept rock faces, and haunted jungles are all unique biomes you'll explore in Jedi: Fallen Order, with the freedom to decide when and where you go next. As you unlock new powers and abilities, opportunities open up to re-traverse maps in new ways; leveraging the Force to augment the way you explore. Move quickly, however, as the Empire is actively hunting your every step in their effort to exterminate all remnants of the Jedi Order.

There we go then, two massive games dropping this week, plenty of content to come and overall, a great time to be gaming! Let me know what you are playing this week down in the comments below, are you picking up any of this week’s new titles? Have a great week everyone!
