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 ever 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 Wrasslin’ Game
WWE 2K16 (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 & PS4, Oct. 27)
The WWE 2K series returns for yet another yearly installment, and this time they’re bringing a somewhat crazy 120+ playable wrestlers along for the ride. While WWE 2K16 may not live up to your cherished WWF No Mercy memories, it seems like 2K Games is making an honest attempt to improve after the lackluster WWE 2K15. Aside from the huge roster, WWE 2K16 features a much deeper creative suite, improved career mode and tweaked in-ring action. Let’s be honest, if you’re a hardcore wrestling fan, you’re probably buying this anyways, but maybe, hopefully, you won’t regret it this year.
