The best games you can play this week – darkness and dunks

September continues to deliver on the gaming front, with some huge games arriving just in time for the warmer weather, including some big-name franchise sequels and highly-anticipated new IPs.


Batman: A Telltale Series – Episode 2: Children of Arkham

20 September 2016 (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

Telltale’s episodic story-driven Batman game gets its second chapter this week, picking up from the events of Episode 1. For those unfamiliar with Telltale’s games, they’re somewhat of a throwback to the storytelling point-and-click adventures of yesteryear, albeit with modern gameplay twists.

So don’t expect another Batman Arkham game here, but rather a slower-paced look into the dual-life of Batman/Bruce Wayne.

In this second episode, the Dark Knight must uncover the truth of what Thomas Wayne was up to and why he was murdered. In order to learn more about his father, Bruce will have to investigate Gotham’s criminal past. The question is who is going to ask the questions: Bruce Wayne or Batman?


NBA 2K17

20 September 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3)

NBA 2K17 gives players a chance to return to the court. Like all annual sports games, it’ll have the prerequisite improvements in animations and graphics, but there are some cool new changes in NBA 2K17.

Enhancements to the MyTeam, MyGM and MyLeague modes have been added, but the biggest change comes to MyCareer mode.

Instead of the linearity of previous iterations, players will embark on a new story, which will require players to create their own NBA star-to-be. How you decide to build your player will affect his skills and attributes, the new revamped creation tool shows how these decisions will change things like dunking, dribble, speed and more.
