Mega Man fans have been starving for a new Blue Bomber game for years now, especially since the Mega Man Legends 3 fiasco in 2011. While the Mega Man Legacy Collection won't scratch that itch -- if anything the itch gets worse playing these games -- it's still a great way to relive the glory days of Mega Man in ways I didn't even expect.

Getting a competent baseball simulation game on the Xbox platform since EA scuttled the MVP series has been a challenge. Though a few developers have tried their hands at bringing the excitement of America's pastime to life on Microsoft's consoles, there haven't been very many success stories. With Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, Metalhead Software is hoping to buck that trend, and become a true go-to baseball sim for fans thirsty for hardball on the Xbox One. The devs are successful in bringing quality baseball to the console for the most part, but Super Mega Baseball has a few shortcomings that keep it from becoming a truly standout experience.

-Rare
Nostalgia is a powerful thing. Bringing back memories of a lost age of innocence is a sure way to make people very happy, and Rare Replay has nostalgia pouring out of it. Every single part of this game was designed with the long-tenured player in mind, especially the hilarious introduction song that describes the developer's thirty years in the business. Thankfully the games play just as enjoyably, creating a really fun package of games that are sure to delight both the young player and the more seasoned vet.

Game of Thrones, Episode 5: A Nest of Vipers Review (Xbox One)

Telltale games
With the arrival of the penultimate episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones comes a rush of mixed feelings. I don't want things to be over, but I also want to bring some resolution to House Forrester. Whether or not the Forresters get the resolution they deserve I can't rightly say just yet, but nothing in Westeros comes without a price, for good or ill. For four episodes now, I've been guiding this family as best I can to ensure the safety and future of the Forrester name. It hasn't always gone the way I've wanted or imagined, but like any good installment of Game of Thrones, be it a chapter from the book or an episode of the show, there's a glimmer of hope off in the distance. Though this episode's pacing was a bit rushed, that horizon draws ever closer, and so does the final fate of the Forresters.

Capcom's never been shy to re-release a game with a slight update, as evidenced by Street Fighter II Turbo, Resident Evil: Director's Cut, and countless others. Now they've plumbed the well of Devil May Cry (moving away from the divisive DmC reboot) to bring us Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, an updated revamp of the 2008 stylish action game with all of its wonders and flaws.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China Review (Xbox One)

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China attempts to quell that clamoring with a taste of what an AC game set in this part of the world could be while also introducing a new and experimental way to play, but if this is the best they could do perhaps we're all better off with the status quo.
