    WWE 2K14 could've been so much better.

    After THQ folded, 2K continued where they left off with WWE 2K14. With a new publisher behind the realm, one would assume that the franchise would be going somewhere. Instead, it went straight down while still showing th... Read Full Review

    Arkham Origins is weak in comparison to the other Arkham games, but it's still a solid title worthy of the Batman name.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum was an awesome game that took everyone by surprise in 2009 and Batman: Arkham City raised the bar in 2011. Now, 2013, we have our third game in the Arkham franchise.Right off the bat, not much has c... Read Full Review

    Honestly, Mega Man 6 was a rather weak way to end the classic NES era of the Mega Man franchise.
