There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?

And its in LEGO form. The LEGO franchise has continued its successful movie series with a return the STAR WARS genre; this time with The Force Awakens, which was the logical step as it is now known to everyone (If you haven't seen it then please come out from under your rock). LEGO have adapted the recent blockbuster into a another of its creative comedy games. Its much of the same as LEGO STAR WARS The Original Trilogy which came out way back in a galaxy far far away on PlayStation 2 with a few new welcome changes.

Board games are a funny old thing. Families would gather round the kitchen table, set the board and pieces and proceed to spend two hours, or more, shouting at each other. Most of the time making accusations of cheating and picking on the youngest member of the family. Most of us grew up and found video games and left the tangible world of board games behind, so it's actually quite refreshing to be playing a video game styled on classic board games. 

The Living Dungeon is the first release from UK based developers Radiation Burn Games and evokes memories of a younger me playing Advanced Hero Quest with my older brothers. It shares a fantasy theme, follows a series of archetypal heroes (minus the dwarf) and has a dungeon filled with danger.

Ever since Bayonetta and Devil May Cry  I have been aching to play another hack 'n slash game. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant in Manhattan (I will refer to TMNT) is developed by both Activision and Nickelodeon  so it is expectant to see some solid game-play as well as turtle humour. 

TMNT suggests you take the tutorial and to anyone thinking about playing this game, take the tutorial. There is a lot going on for the controls. There are the standard two button attacks, one light and one heavy and then a whole host of other options. There is a ranged shuriken attack which is so fiddly in a fast paced hack and slash I barely used it unless necessary. It feels like one mechanic too many. On top of controlling one turtle you can change to any of the other turtle brothers during a level. The Xbox app button allows you to communicate some basic AI to the rest of the brothers. However, the options are limited to, wait, go all out, and follow me. Instructing the brothers to follow me made it easier to complete time sensitive missions as 'going all out' will have the AI run amok during open world levels.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is the 2nd game in the Mirror's Edge series. Catalyst was developed by DICE and published by EA, but despite being the 2nd game, it is actually a reboot of the series, and not a prequel nor sequel. Set in the futuraristic city of Glass, you play as Faith Connors, a runner who takes it upon herself to discover the mysteries behind K-sec research.

Blizzard as a developer has been around for a very long time, they created one of my favourite Real Time Strategy games Warcraft 3. The team knows how to make compelling stories and characters, we have seen this is game series like Diablo and Starcraft. The games created by Blizzard are usually PC games, so when a rare treat from the industry veterans comes out on console you bet it is worth paying attention to.
