New year, plenty of new games coming out so we can wash away some of the cynicism left over from last year's stinkers.  This week we each picked a handful of games to cover for this week, and likely more next week in part 2.

Though none of us were huge fans of the first, we all thought it had potential and could be greatly improved for the second iteration.  The second game is here in Dishonored 2 and we give our thoughts. 

 

During "What We Played" Eric played the first few hours of Watch Dogs 2 and Dan and Corey tried Tyranny.
