Go for a trot around the kooky Saint Hazel's Horsepital, butt-slam your buddies in Brief Battles, continue the adventure of Life Is Strange 2, and explore the open worlds of three Grand Theft Auto-related action games: Saints Row: The Third for Switch, Yakuza Kiwami 2 for PC, and Shakedown Hawaii for computer and console.

Saint Hazel's Horsepital for PC

Become the stealthiest member of the equine kingdom, sneakily clip-clopping through a strange hospital, its bizarre neighbouring dungeon, even 1968 Vietnam as a wide-eyed and weird-walking horse on a mission to rescue your buddy, Buddy.

Brief Battles for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Channeling the spirit of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros franchise and bringing it to other systems, Brief Battles is all about multiplayer madness for up to four button bashers, all scrambling for pairs of superpowered underpants in order to gain the upper hand (or buttock) and bash everyone else into oblivion.

Shakedown: Hawaii for PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Vita

An out-of-touch corporate exec, his aspiring DJ son, and loyal consultant / enforcer get to grips with the modern world through a series of extremely hostile takeovers, protection rackets, political corruption, and general disregard for human life. Ups the retro vibes of its predecessor, Retro City Rampage, with another homage to the early years of Grand Theft Auto.

Life Is Strange: Episode 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux

Brothers Sean and Daniel continue on their journey to Mexico and into the realm of superpowered possibility, in this episode finding a temporary home in an outsider community, but the peculiarities of their journey bring to light simmering tensions between the pair.

Saints Row: The Third for Nintendo Switch

Corporate-gangster spoof Saints Row: The Third stood tall against the might of the Grand Theft Auto franchise upon its first release back in 2011 and here fills an open world crime spree gap on Switch with its sprawling cityscape, wild vehicles, characters and missions, and risqué and often mature-themed humour.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 for PC, previously released on PlayStation 4

A remake of 2006 PlayStation 2 hit Yakuza 2 in which an ex-Yakuza is recruited to stop a huge gang war breaking out after his old clan's leader is bumped off. Now incorporating fighting and minigame elements from the series' more recent Yakuza 6 and Yakuza 0 and well reviewed on console. – AFP Relaxnews
