PCs, handhelds, mobile, console, indies, triple A, free-to-play — the gaming scene gets more diverse and difficult to follow by the day, but thankfully I’m here every week to guide you through what’s happening with games.
As always, I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, here are the games you need to know about this week…
This Week’s LEGO Game
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers (PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PS Vita & Wii U, Jan. 26)
There’s actually a lot more to LEGO Marvel’s Avengers than just The Avengers. Of course, the game covers The Avengers and Age of Ultron, but it also draws from most of the Avengers tie-in movies, as well. Expect content drawn from Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and both Captain America films. LEGO Marvel’s Avengers looks like a merry MCU mashup indeed.
