God of War IV – out now
- Major departure from the main series – gets rid of hack and slash double axes, replaces them with a magical battle axe
- Story involves Norse history while all past installments involved Greek mythology
- Notable for the incredible acclaim it’s received – beautiful game, wonderful story
- PS4 only
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery
- An interactive story phone game that’s sorta fun but a real letdown
- Forces you to wait for an energy bar to refill before you can complete certain actions/scenes
- Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery forces you to pay – or wait – to save a kid from being strangled
- Belgium has formally ruled that loot boxes in video games are criminal gambling
- Games can be fined or game companies could be threatened with prison time for gambling
- Quick plug for Lego The Incredibles, which is out in June (and all Lego games, really)
