I wasn’t planning to choose Vampyr this week. Then I looked up what it was. In short, it’s that Vampire: The Masquerade sequel we’ve all been wanting, but that isn’t why I’m picking it.

No, I’m picking it because it takes place in 1918, during an influenza outbreak and you play as a doctor who is also a vampire. Those of you who have read certain sparkly vampire books already know why that is absolutely hilarious, and those of you who haven’t, well, I’ll save you the trouble of googling it.

For inadvertently plagiarizing Stephenie Meyer’s seminal work, Vampyr goes from a “when I get around to it” title to a “potential day-one purchase.” Obviously, this one is my game of the week.

Until this week, The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker was merely an affectionate term for DT’s love of mundane simulators. Now it’s also an FMV mystery-horror game where you play a psychiatrist. Type in questions and watch the actors respond. One for those who liked Her Story.

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn has some amusing promotional materials, with little to show for gameplay. Is marketing trying to polish a poop emoji? Beware.

Shape of the World is a walking simulator with no story, puzzles or combat. It just wants you to have a relaxing time walking around its procedurally-generated forest.

I’m impressed that mid-tier stealth game Aragami has done well enough to get DLC. Nightfall offers a new campaign, more story and new powers to play with. It’s one of those rare games that offers cross-platform multiplayer, just like Rocket League.

For my GOTW pick, I’m going to have to agree with DT. Vampyr looks best this week, for the reasons he said. It offers a feast of choice’n’consequence. Apparently it’s possible to finish the game without killing anyone, for those of you who like to turn up to the restaurant and not eat anything.

I'm always down for checking out a game with "vehicular combat" in the description. Here's hoping that the old Evolution Studios folks succeed in their new Codemasters home.

Comments

Vampyre is on my “hope it’s good” or wait till it’s cheaper.

Haimrik certainly looks interesting. Didn't know it was coming to PS4.
