The Week In Games: Say, That's A Nice Bike

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Say, That's A Nice Bike

A quiet week. E3 is getting closer and closer and as usual, game releases are slowing down during this time of the year. But for you fans of fast motorcycles, the season is just starting! MotoGP 19 is out later this week for most platforms. Vroom vroom! Or whatever noise a motorcycle going that fast makes.


What’s cooler? A dirtbike doing sick stunts or a fast street bike going REALLY, REALLY fast? I’m going to lean more towards the dirtbike. If you can pull off a backflip on a dirtbike, you will probably never need to do anything else. Just show up to the X Games, flip a few times and walk away with some sponsors or maybe even a mobile game.

Beyond speedy bikes, a bunch of stuff is coming to your gaming PC this week. Journey, once a PlayStation only game, will soon be playable on your desktop rig of choice. Also, a game called Just Sleep, which sounds wonderful. And finally, Slay The Spire jumps to the Switch. I know folks are excited about that one!

I should know better than to get interested by a Milestone racing game, but the new MotoGP legitimately does look better than what they’ve put out in the past.
