Week One (Aug. 1-6)
August is the beginning of the end for 2016’s ‘summer drought.’ Developers, both indie and triple-A, are once again bestowing some great games upon the gaming masses. Week one is a bit slower than others, but that doesn’t mean it’s without any great games for fans of all types to sink their teeth into. Abzu, from the artistic mind that helped to bring us both Flower and Journey, sets players on a beautiful diving excursion.
Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked brings back the tough survival that has hooked tons of players already, only this time water will prove to be a great ally and a mortal enemy. One stand-out title of the week though will definitely be Batman: The Telltale Series. The talented story-smiths at Telltale are bringing out all the stops as they tackle the caped crusader, even introducing their own form of multiplayer. It will be interesting to see how donning the cowl plays out in this new adventure.
