This week's games news

Computer Hacker

Games out this week include Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle (PS3), a second-rate fighting game based on the long-running manga series.

Daylight (PS4, PC) is a scary-looking first-person survival horror game (set in a disused hospital) that ironically takes place almost entirely in darkness; rigidly old-school dungeon-exploring RPG, Demon Gaze (Vita) has been out for a while in Japan and has just received its English translation.

And Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PS4, PC) arrives on PS4 this week, letting console gamers experience what life might be like as a cephalopod disguised as a suburban father of two. The answer is, extremely wobbly and with a tendency for knocking everything over. Octodad's insane multi-legged clumsiness is pretty funny until levels begin to demand split-second timing and dexterity, at which point the joke wears a bit thin.
