Story: RiME is a single-player puzzle adventure game about a young boy shipwrecked on a mysterious island after a torrential storm.
My thoughts: I was the guinea pig for this game. It looked interesting, and I love a good puzzle. After noticing the kinda ethereal vibe I had to be nosey and see if my suspicions were correct. I don't want to spoil it for you, google can do that, but my thinking was correct and this game includes a twist in the story I wasn't expecting.
Story: Get ready to race in NASCAR Heat 2. Stand-alone tracks include Eldora Speedway, and drivers and tracks from both the Xfinity Series and the Camping World Truck Series are included as you hurtle along at top speed. A 40-player multiplayer option lets you race against numerous opponents in NASCAR Heat 2.
What we thought: The whole family got in on this game. We may even have had some trash talking going on! Single-Player or multi, everyone can put their driving skills where there mouths are in Nascar Heat 2. My son who is obsessed with all things cars, begs to play this one everyday. If you love racing games, this is a must for you. I also like that you have the ability to customize your car, hello hot pink!
Story: Classic NBA arcade action is back! Take your “A” game to the playground and beat the best in high-flying 2-on-2 basketball action. Practice your skills offline, play with up to three others on your, or take your talents online to posterize your opponents with acrobatic jams and ridiculous displays of skill.
What we thought: If you are looking for less complicated NBA game, NBA Playgrounds is for you. Unlock new playgrounds as you beat tournaments and gain new players you can use in each game. The trash talking from the in-game announcers makes me laugh. It definitely reminds me of watching playground games back in school!

Fakin’ It (3-6 players)

What we thought: This game is rated T for Teen. There are family friendly settings for most of the games, but I would recommend this one for teens and up. Or, at least give each game a go before letting the younger ones play. I really like that you can play using your phones, tablets, or computers. Which means, no extra controllers needed! We have extra controllers, but not 7 of them!
