Switchaboo Pick of the Week

Unfortunately this week has been a bit lackluster in comparison to weeks just gone, but we still have a very prominent Pick of the Week to announce. And that game is…

Drum roll, please…

Outlast 2!

Outlast 2

Shocking, we know…

But Outlast 2 deserves all of the credit that we can give it. Being the sequel to the first game that surprisingly dropped on the Switch eShop a few weeks ago, Outlast 2 shows that more and more third-parties are doing whatever they can to get their games on the platform.

We also have to give a special mention to The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle: Episode 1: A Dreadly Business, just because it looks hilarious.
