This game is finally out for the Xbox One, and we say it’s about time. Firewatch is a neat little game that takes place in 1989, and is set in Wyoming. You start off normally, as an everyday fire lookout, watching for fires in your National Park.
The story quickly takes a turn for the sinister as you get sucked into some sort of mystery involving park patrons and your watchtower. Definitely a good grab if you enjoy mystery games.
2. Darkest Dungeon
Many hardcore gamers will know this game right off the bat. What many gamers won’t know is that this game has just come out for the PS4 and the PS Vita! It’s an awesome rougelike game where you gather your heroes and attempt to defeat baddies in their dungeons.
Word to the wise: this can be an extremely frustrating game if you are not a fan of roguelikes. However, if you are into games like XCOM, FTL, or The Binding of Isaac, this game is right up your alley, and now you can take it to go on your PS Vita.
3. NBA 2K17
The first of two new sports games out this week, NBA 2K17 is out this week and features an updated roster of players, as well as a whole slew of new features for fans to play with. Craft your own sick basketball teams and strut your skills on the court.
Now let’s just hope said skills pay the bills.
4. FIFA 17
If you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all, and FIFA 17 is now out for all platforms. Fans of the franchise will enjoy amazing updated graphics, new attacking techniques for their attackers, an overhaul of the physical play system, and an active intelligence system that’s surpasses previous versions.
It’s going to be the same game, obviously, but with these sweet updated features, players will have a more enjoyable time playing with their teams.
5. XCOM 2
Granted, this game is already out for PC. So, for those of you loving this game through Steam, congrats! But for those console players who have been chomping at the bit for this game, your day has finally arrived.
Fight off all sorts of aliens, some from the previous XCOM game, and others brand new and just as deadly, as you attempt to complete randomly generated missions with your team. Now you can get your butt kicked along with your PC brethren!
