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.
We recently freshened up the Five Games format a bit. The Pick of the Week is now 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
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PS Vita & Wii U, June 28)
Well, it had to happen! We have a new Star Wars movie, so that means we need another LEGO Star Wars video game! LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn’t just cover the events of the movie, it actually introduces new elements to the Disney Star Wars canon. In particular, a number of missions will bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
In addition to the storyline stuff, the game also introduces some new mechanics to the LEGO series. You can now build certain sections of levels in different ways to unlock hidden paths, and shooting elements have been added to the usual brawling. It looks like LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens could be a must-have for Star Wars and LEGO fans alike.
