The world is a strange, scary and depressing place right now. And it shows no signs of improving anytime soon. Luckily, Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons are dropping this week to help everyone take a break from all the bad news.

After months of people celebrating Doomguy and Isabelle’s amazing friendship, it felt only right to invite a bunch of Animal Crossing characters and demons from Doom together for one big party. Social distancing isn’t important for demons and animals, they are safe from the virus. (And Doomguy is Doomguy, he’s basically unkillable and also loves washing his hands.)

Beyond Doom and Animal Crossing, other stuff is coming out too. Check out the full list below:

Just FYI, MLB The Show is still just a PS4 exclusive. The multi-console agreement does not start till next year.

Definitely will be grabbing it tomorrow, I'm itchy without baseball ramping up right now.
