Metro 2033 Redux

Westerado: Double Barreled
Cowboys! Guns! Mystery! Experience all that and more in this spaghetti western-inspired action game that’s unlike any western you may’ve played before. After a bandit murders your family in cold blood, it’s up to you to track him down and deliver justice. The wrinkle to the game is that each time you play, the killer’s description and trail is different, and you must piece together the clues as you travel through the open world, taking on side quests and talking to NPCs.
LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Join Indiana Jones (in brick form) on a series of his classic adventures inspired by the films “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” all with a unique, tongue-in-cheek flavor – and lots, and lots of LEGOs. You’ll battle, build, and brawl your way from the jungles of South America to the mountaintops of India uncovering secrets and collectibles galore across 18 levels of family gaming fun.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
With melee moves, magic spells, and Shantae’s trademark animal transformations, you’ll embark on a gorgeously animated, action-packed platformer journey spanning burning towns, tropical waterfalls, searing deserts, haunted abodes, and more. Numerous abilities and upgrades await, and you’ll need them all to discover secret areas and overcome dangerous foes, including a gargantuan sandworm, a very angry mermaid, and Shantae’s arch-nemesis: the sinister pirate queen Risky Boots.
The city is rigged to explode blow and you’re in control of the action as bridges will fall, buildings will become clouds of rubble, and cars will be blown to pieces. This is the world of Split/Second, an intense racing game set within the world of a big-budget reality game show where contestants will race across a city made for destruction to be first to cross the finish line. Full of explosive stunts, demolition, and racing thrills, this racing game is full of high-octane excitement.
