Welcome folks, and happy “605th Anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt” week! This is the famous battle featured in Shakespeare's Henry V, where English longbowmen wore down the numerically superior French men-at-arms as they pressed through mud in their heavy armour. Once the French closed the distance, the nimbler archers switched to hatchets, swords, and mallets to finish them off. You may all celebrate by playing a game where you burn up all your ammo on a boss before wailing on it with your underpowered, melee attacks.

If you thought last week was quiet for games, get a load of this week. Case-in-point: the only new thing for a Nintendo property is the second expansion for Pokemon: Sword and Shield.

The consoles are getting a whole bunch of indie, platformer/action games from yesteryear’s PC lists. Bladed Fury is a side-scrolling, 2D action game in a Chinese fantasy setting. Outpost Delta is a side-scrolling, 2D action game in a sci-fi setting—with puzzling. GROOD is a shmup and Supraland is a colourful first-person metroidvania, similar to last year’s Journey to the Savage Planet.

Amnesia: Rebirth is the latest Amnesia game. The mechanics haven’t been changed too much—there’s still a fear meter and the use of light to keep it in check. If you’re in the headspace for what the devs are selling as a “harrowing journey through desolation and despair, exploring the limits of human resilience,” well, here it is.

DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part One is an expandalone DLC that you can jump into without buying the main game. It looks like more scoops of DOOM Eternal without changing the recipe.

I mentioned the G.I. Joe game last week, so I’d better mention Transformers: Battlegrounds this week. It’s XCOM-lite and aimed at kids, as you’d expect. The action economy in battles is a lot simpler than in XCOM, and you don’t level up your autobots—just pick them from a roster before a mission. And there’s single- and multi-player.

This is a hard week to pick a GOTW; nothing really inspires me. I can’t even vote for Macrotis: A Mother's Journey on parochial grounds. Although the game is about a Bilby (an Australian, ratlike marsupial), the story looks like such a downer—like a Bambi for Bilbies—that I can’t do it.

I’ll give the GOTW to DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part One. DOOM’s fun, go play more.

If it's the anniversary of Agincourt, then it must also be the anniversary of the Charge of the Light Brigade, and of the busiest day of the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Good day for absurdly imbalanced matchups.

Supraland is supposedly quite good. Will have to check it out.

The Amnesia devs are top notch. I still haven't played much of Soma though, so I should probably get to that before the new Amnesia.
