What Gamers Want for the Week of 1-27-14

lara_croft_tomb_raider_2013

This week’s new video game release schedule isn’t completely devoid of worthy titles, but none of them are really “New” either. The front runner, and a must-play if you skipped it in 2013 is Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which is releasing for the two next-gen consoles on Tuesday.

The other two brand new releases are Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, and Double Fine’s Broken Age: Part 1. The latter is a PC exclusive, while Battle of Z is releasing for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PS Vita.

Finally, a few re-releases are dropping this week with The Firemen 2: Pete & DannyMark Davis Pro Bass Challenge, and Cyber Sled all making PSN debuts on the PS3. Loadout is also coming out this week in full for the PC.

 

Our Recommendation

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is the clear winner this week, especially if you never played the original in 2013. The re-release has all new graphics and physics effects, plus all DLC content is included from 2013. On the PC side of things you really can’t go wrong with a Tim Schaefer game, so Broken Age: Part 1 shouldn’t be a risky pick-up.
