Best games you can play this week – gore and gangs

As we head further into January, the gaming release schedule starts to heat up – and we have some interesting-looking games arriving this week, including the creepy return of the Resident Evil franchise, along with some other exciting titles.

Resident Evil 7

24 January 2017 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

After Resident Evil 6 took an all-out action approach, Resident Evil 7 brings everything back to what first defined the series: survival horror. You now explore the world from first-person, and the environments are suitably dark and dingy, recapturing the sense of dread and suspense from the earlier games.

The game’s demo has already been terrifying gamers who’ve been brave enough to play it, so we’re excited to see what kind of chilling scares and first-person combat await in the full game when it releases this week.

Yakuza 0

24 January 2017 (PS4)

Yakuza 0 serves as prequel to the fan-beloved beat-’em-up Yakuza series. It tells the origins stories of series main protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and series antagonist Goro Majima. Each man’s story sees them trying to escape an impossible situation: Kiryu trying to prove his innocence after being framed for murder and Majima trying to escape a benevolent prison.

While a prequel, Yakuza 0 enjoys all the advancements the series has made over the years with engaging combat and a multitude of side quests, activities, and mini games. To help deepen the various combat styles Majima and Kiryu can utilise is an intuitive yet complex upgrade system. The narrative is compelling to be sure, but each characters’ main side activity has its own involved narrative to enjoy.
