Batman: The Enemy Within - The Complete Season

n this latest chapter from the award-winning studio behind Batman - The Telltale Series, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Blood is everything as Dracula faces both his nemesis and his descendant's unyielding quest for revenge, in this final, dramatic battle between good and evil.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

Shantae embarks on her first full HD adventure! When a mysterious crime wave sweeps Sequin Land, it's up to Half-Genie Hero Shantae to save the day! Use Shantae's devastating Hair-Whip Attack to send monsters flying, or Belly Dance to transform into a more powerful creature form! Topple the masterminds behind each criminal caper and prepare for the ultimate showdown against Shantae's arch-nemesis.

Sonic Generations

Sonic's universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power comes into force, creating time holes which take Sonic and his friends back in time. Whilst there, Sonic runs into some very familiar characters from his past including a younger version of himself! Now they must team up to defeat their enemies, save their friends, and find out who is behind this diabolical deed.

All of these are great games, but we're partial to Batman: The Enemy Within. It's just fantastic!
