- The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Edition, June 09, 2015
This is hands down the RPG of the year for me! Whether you are an active ESO Plus member or not this game is worth every penny! From the lush free roam areas to the PvP areas to the unlimited amount of customization this game has something for everyone!
- Rise of the Tomb Raider, Nov 10, 2015
Although I haven’t finished this game yet I am still quite compelled to put this on the list. If you loved the last one, you will most certainly love this one. The story line is just as captivating as the others, figure in the puzzle solving tombs and the third person shooter action, that makes this game a winner for me for sure!
- Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Aug 25, 2015
So, if you know anything about us, Gears is one of our favorite games in Xbox history! When I heard that they were going to re-release Gears, I just couldn’t contain my excitement! When I loaded up my first match on Gridlock and looked around, I could believe my eyes! They did such a great job fine tuning all of the beautiful details that gave our favorite maps immense depth al the while keeping gameplay in its true Gears form.

- Star Wars Battlefront, Nov 17, 2015
If you are a Star Wars fan then you know that this was a long awaited game release! Luckily that wait was not met with disappointing results! This game is awesome! Keep in mind this is not a sequel to the original Battlefront series but more of a reboot so judge accordingly. If you are a Star Wars fan you will truly appreciate the attention to detail this game brings. From intense Tie fighter battles above Sullust to the ground wars on the Battle of Jakku this game is action packed and chock full of Star Wars goodness!
- Mortal Kombat X
Mortal Kombat X is a nice step away from the fps/rpg world we live in today as gamers. You dont need to spend endless hours leveling up to be competetive with other which I love, just pop it in and get to beating people up to the sound of FINISH HIM! is still as rewarding as it ever was. Graphically this game is extremely exquisite. The fatalities are more gruesome than ever and the X-Ray combos are just the icing on the bloody slice of cake this game is serving up!
