Every week as the year picks up, it feels like there are more games for more platforms than ever. So, every week, we pick out five games that get attention. Starting, this week, with one of the most popular franchises out there going in a controversial direction.
Pick Of The Week: Metal Gear Survive, Today ($60, PS4, Xbox One, and PC)
The first Metal Gear without gaming auteur Hideo Kojima will feature Metal Gear’s testosterone-and-conspiracy-laden heroes going up against zombies in an open-world survival game.

Age Of Empires: Definitive Edition, Today ($20, PC)
