The Week In Games: The British (Pokémon) Are Coming!

A brand new Pokémon game is releasing this week. I’m not even a big Pokémon fan and I’m still excited about Sword and Shield, the first big main entry Pokémon RPG to land on home consoles. Sure, not all the Pokémon from the past are coming back, but I doubt the internet will get angry about that...

Actually, it seems like the internet, at least part of it, is very upset about this. I get some of the sadness and anger. People have favorites and they’ve been playing these games for years and years. So having to leave behind what is basically an old friend hurts. But I also get that this was going to have to happen eventually. Did we all really think that in 20 years they would have 2000+ Pokémon in one game?

Beyond Pokémon Sword and Shield, the week is filled with a bunch of games and a lot of variety. Do you want to be a powerful Jedi? Go play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Do you want to catch Alaskan King Crab? Go play The Deadliest Catch: The Game. Or maybe you just want to chill and become a small insect. Well, go play Bee Simulator, which comes out later this week too.

And A LOT of other stuff is coming out this week too! Check out the list below:
