Video Games

The Crew (Available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PC) The Crew takes players on a relentless ride across a massive open world recreation of the United States, loaded with exciting challenges. Customize your car and maneuver through the bustling streets of New York City to lose the cops, cruise down sunny Miami Beach or drive through the breathtaking plateaus of Monument Valley. Each locale comes with surprises and challenges to master. On your journey you will encounter other real players on the road, all potentially worthy companions to crew up with or future rivals to compete against.

I don’t like driving to begin with, so an authentic driving game doens’t really catch my fancy. But for those who are into the scene, I think this game would be pretty invaluable for many. There seems to be a lot of variety and color to this game that most modern racers lack. There seems to be a lot of care and detail to this game, which I respect as well. And the best aspect of it all is its online capabilities. Key features included are:

  • Be Part of the Crew – The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving game developed exclusively for next-gen consoles.
  • The Most Varied Driving Experience of All Time – Take part in a relentless ride to move up the ranks of the 510s, a gang grown around Detroit’s illegal street racing scene – making a rep for yourself on the underground-racing scene and ultimately taking down their activities all across the United States.
  • Never Drive Alone – Join a living, breathing world of car enthusiasts, where you always have someone next to you, ready to take on new challenges with or against you.
  • Live All the Adventures of Driving – The entire United States is your driving playground, covering thousands of square miles, from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit.
  • The Next Generation of Driving – A new generation of hardware requires new standards. Exclusively developed for the next generation of consoles, THE CREW offers a massive open world version of the USA, recreated with amazing graphics and level of detail.
  • Prepare for the Next Job – Earn new vehicles as you progress and customize them, according to your style and driving preferences. Do you have the required mastery for an endurance race, or the lightning-fast reflexes to tackle an epic downhill rally?

Game of Thrones Ep. 1: Iron from Ice (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, PC) Based on HBO’s award-winning television drama, Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester, a noble house from the north of Westeros. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

Queue theme song stuck in head.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix (PlayStation 3) KINGDOM HEARTS 2.5 picks up where KINGDOM HEARTS HD 1.5 ReMIX left off, letting players continue their adventures with Sora, Mickey, Donald Duck, Goofy and other Disney characters. With impeccable high-definition visuals and enhanced gameplay mechanics, players will explore the origins of the hallmark series with Terra, Aqua and Ventus. Players can also venture through various Disney worlds, including Deep Space (Lilo & Stitch), 100 Acre Wood (Winnie the Pooh), Port Royal (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), Timeless River (Steamboat Willie) and more.

I have sadly yet to play Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX. This is a franchise that really excites me, but my main issue is time. I love RPGs like these, and I would want to take extra care and time to play through it all. Plus Kingdom Hearts III is gearing up and so gamers will really want to relive this highly praised sequel. Key features for this game includes:

  • Origins of KINGDOM HEARTS: KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX traverses through the origins of KINGDOM HEARTS as players can choose between three Keyblade Masters – Terra, Ventus, or Aqua. Their journeys will link everything back to the beginning. This version of KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX marks the first time this game will be released on the PlayStation 3 platform!
  • New to North America: KINGDOM HEARTS II FINAL MIX and KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep FINAL MIX brings all new content to North America with the addition of new cutscenes, mini-games, enemies, weapons, and much more!
  • ReMIXed for everyone: Not only have the graphics on each game been completely overhauled to adapt to the PlayStation 3, but KINGDOM HEARTS Re:coded has been converted into HD remastered cinematics with all new cutscenes featuring all of your favorite KINGDOM HEARTS characters!
