Welcome folks, and happy “64th Anniversary of the first broadcast of The Wizard of Oz on TV” week! A story about how the people had the power inside them all along and the scary man in charge was fallible after all—perhaps it could resonate this week.

It’s the final days before new consoles come out, which may explain why the release list is fluffy, yet full of empty calories, like a can of cool whip.

DIRT 5 comes out this week, and again next week for the new consoles. No one renders mud particles quite like Codemasters, and all the dynamic weather will be back, too. New features this time around include ice racing, 4-player splitscreen, Nolan North, and Troy Baker.

My Universe: School Teacher is a school sim, like Bully, except you’re the teacher. You motivate your students, organise school events, and somehow find time to explore for secrets. The rose-coloured glasses are an inch thick—this is like the Yoga Instagram version of teaching.

The Switch continues to flood its catalogue with ports without having anything particularly Switch-y this week.

On the PC, Pro Basketball Manager 2021 brings another instalment of this famously crunchy, sports management sim. It’s a spreadsheet-jockey’s paradise, and for the first time, includes womens’ leagues.

If you’re one of those Star Wars fans whose favourite part is when Grand Moff Tarkin says, “You may fire when ready,” then Vocal Space Shooter is for you. It’s a physics-based, destruction game, like Angry Birds, but you use voice commands to launch your ballistic, space torpedoes.

Grey Skies: A War of the Worlds Story is a stealth-action game set in H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds. It’s not as grand in scale as an Assassin’s Creed or Ghost of Tsushima, but rather more on par with A Plague Tale: Innocence. Many bigger games have subsystems for crafting different types of throwables to distract, disable, or frenzy opponents while you sneak around—in this case, that’s the whole game. As someone who has spent hours on the rooftops of Florence, making Ezio throw sleep darts at guards, then berserk darts at the guards who came to wake them up, that’s good enough for me. GOTW.

Here's the list, now in release-date AND alphabetical order!

Lair of the Clockwork God for me. Really looking forward to it.

What the Fork?... Fork yes!

Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia is something I have my eye on for the kids.
