Video Games


Evolve ( PC)

Evolve is a welcome evolution from the Turtle Rock Studios team and a refreshing kind of title that you likely haven't experienced before, introducing excellent four-versus-one action that can be enjoyed on- or offline.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker ( Wii U)

It's not the meatiest offering that Nintendo games usually offer, but Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is totally accessible and undeniably fun to play. The games ends a little sooner than we expected and a few control scheme decisions have us wishing for more customization.

Kingdom Rush Origins

Kingdom Rush Origins ( iPad)

Fast and exciting strategic gameplay makes Kingdom Rush Origins a must-have pick for tower-defense fans.

WWE 2K15

WWE 2K15 ( PlayStation 4)

WWE 2k15 is a hard game to recommend to someone who isn't a wrestling fan and it's not without its issues, but if you know the difference between an Enziguri and a Senton there's a lot of fun to be had.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U ( Wii U)

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the total package that delivers on nearly every level. With a seemingly endless amount of replay value, Super Smash should be the one staple in every Wii U library.

LittleBigPlanet 3

LittleBigPlanet 3 ( PlayStation 4)

LittleBigPlanet 3 is a paradise for creativity that provides an impressive array of tools and possibilities. Its included adventure is fresh, and the new characters and items are a welcome evolution.

Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 ( PlayStation 4)

Far Cry 4 borrows a lot from the last game, but it adds enough excitement, fresh ideas and a brilliant new landscape to warrant the return trip.

Assassin's Creed: Unity

Assassin's Creed: Unity ( PlayStation 4)

While it will likely suffice for Assassin's Creed core fans, Unity stumbles throughout and never really finds its footing. Where last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag saw the franchise reach new heights, Unity is somewhat of a sidestep that only shines sporadically.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition ( Xbox One)

Dragon Age Inquisition isn't perfect -- but pretty close and very easily the best in the series by a wide margin.

Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim  God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle

Sony PlayStation 3 Super Slim God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle ( 500GB)

While it will begin to cede its position to the PS4 in 2015, the PlayStation 3 still delivers impressively strong value for gaming and video entertainment.
