JOE Gaming Weekly - The Callisto Protocol looks absolutely terrifying
If you've ever played a Dead Space game, then you should know what to expect.
Welcome to JOE Gaming Weekly, your weekly round-up of all things gaming.
Or, specifically, the one big game you should play this week, the one big piece of gaming news you need to know about, and the one big deal available to purchase this week.
So, off we go!
GAME OF THE WEEK
If you loved those creepy and atmospheric 2D platformers like Limbo and Inside, then chancers are you will also love Silt. Set deep within the darkened ocean, you play a diver with a secret power: the ability to control some of the creatures of the deep. But how you got this power and why you're in the ocean in the first place, they're the mysteries you'll need to unravel as you venture further and deeper into the abyss...
Silt is available on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC right now.
BIG NEWS OF THE WEEK
The Callisto Protocol looks absolutely terrifying
A space-bound horror with terrifying monsters from the creator of Dead Space? Yes please!
As part of its most-recent showcase, PlayStation showed off some of the gameplay for The Callisto Protocol, in which you control Jacob (played by Josh Duhamel), a man trying to escape a prison located on one of Jupiter's moons, following an alien invasion which appears to have been organised by the prison's warden.
This game will not be for the faint of heart. Or the weak of stomach.
The Callisto Protocol will arrive on PlayStation, Xbox and PC on 2 December this year.
DEAL OF THE WEEK
PS VR Starter Park
One of the big points that everyone noted during PlayStation's showcase this week was that they're clearly pushing for VR to be a big part of their future.
So, to that end, why not check out the PS VR set that is already available, before the arrival of a host of new VR games in the not-too-distant future?
PS VR Starter Park is available in Smyths Toy Stores, marked down from €299 to €199.
