Destiny 2 is an alright game, it’s definitely an improvement over the original being a more expansive launch package. Still, with so many other games I mostly just worked through the story and did some PVP before moving on. While I may not be the biggest fan out there like so many are, I have to say that visually Destiny 2 is one of the best looking games of the year. The worlds are simply stunning and with this update they look that much more incredible. From the close to home destroyed Earth, to the large alien worlds it’s all so enchanting. We’re not exactly getting a huge list of enhancements, but we are getting a nice bump in quality.
NetherRealm has been on a roll since 2011’s Mortal Kombatreboot, and with the release of Injustice 2, it’s come one step closer to perfecting its particular brand of fighting game. Injustice 2 is dense, deep, and refined, but also accessible to newcomers thanks to relatively simple move lists and a variety of rewarding new gameplay opportunities. The addition of gear makes the biggest splash in this regard, allowing you to craft a personalized hero or villain, both inside (with stat boosts) and outside (with elaborate costume upgrades)–all while maintaining the game’s balanced roster. There are some complications to gear management that may frustrate, but minor gripes aside, character growth and customization proves to be the biggest boon for an already strong fighting game set in a fractured DC Comics universe.

Tell someone that a video game can be considered a piece of art and the likelihood is they’ll either raise their eyebrows or just laugh at you.
Sony has revealed this week’s round of PlayStation Store deals, and they’re slim pickings. That’s hardly a surprise, though, considering we’re coming off the back of a massive, two-week sale that saw hundreds of PS4, PS3, Vita, and even PSPtitles drop in price. Still, players can find a couple of enticing deals on the digital store this week.

There’s always been something voyeuristic about sniping in video games. With a powerful rifle in hand, you’re perched in some bombed-out tower overlooking a Nazi-occupied town, your crosshairs fixated squarely on the head of an enemy soldier as he strides along his designated patrol route. He has no idea that with one pull of the trigger, you’re about to send a bullet careening through flesh and bone, snuffing out his young life in a single, gory instant. It’s in these moments, when an unaware enemy is trained in your sights and you take a deep breath before pulling the trigger on a skull-shattering killshot, that make Rebellion’s Sniper Elite such a devilish joy. Where the series has regularly faltered, however, is in the moments between these euphoric, long-range kills, where it has often been a cumbersome chore just to get around in a stealthy manner. With Sniper Elite 4, Rebellion has changed all that.
