Keeping track of all the games arriving each week on PC, handhelds, consoles and mobile is no easy task, but don’t worry, I’m here to help. Every week in Five Games I separate the wheat from the chaff and pick the titles you need to pay attention to.
Here’s the format for Five Games: The Pick of the Week is listed first, and the rest of the games are filed under headings that will hopefully be more helpful for you. Looking for the latest indie hotness? Check the Steam picks. Want to download something for your Xbox One or PS4 on a Saturday night? Hit up the Console Downloads section. So, without further ado…
Pick of the Week
Batman: The Telltale Series – Realm of Shadows (PC, Mac, Xbox One & PS4, Aug. 2)
Telltale Games have shown they can knock comic book adaptations out of the park with The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, and now they take on perhaps the greatest comic book hero of all time: Batman.
Batman: The Telltale Series takes place in a unique universe, which takes a lot of inspiration from Batman: Year One, but will also delve off in different directions. As in most Telltale series, agonizing choices will be a big feature, with players having the option to make Batman do things he usually wouldn’t do, like kill. It will certainly be interesting to see what new territory this five-part M-rated series takes the Caped Crusader to.
