Journey PS4 PlayStation 4 1

The blockbuster round-a-bout may be taking a break ahead of Christmas, but there are more than enough budget titles to hold your interest this week. Journey is the obvious highlight this time around, but if you've already played thatgamecompany's poetic escapade on your PlayStation 3, then Hatoful Boyfriend may be worth a beady look, too.

Pick of the Week: Journey

It's tough to not sound like a hipster nit when describing Journey, but this is a game that should be played by everyone – even those without moustache wax. A two hour adventure that's sublime from start to finish, thatgamecompany's critically acclaimed adventure does what it says on the tin: it takes you on an epic voyage through various emotions, culminating in a crescendo of ultimate empowerment.

In truth, it's tough to convey the brilliance of this release in a couple of paragraphs – you should just play it. This new-gen port promises more polished visuals, so if you've never played it before, you may as well do so in 1080p. And for those of you that are familiar with the foray's scorching sands, then know that it'll be cross-buy compatible, meaning that if you bought it on the PS3 – well, you already own on it on Sony's rhombus-shaped system.
