I don’t know if I’ve told you this, but I’m always a little disturbed when a new batch of screens show up for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It’s not that it looks bad (actually, it looks pretty amazing), and it’s nothing to do with the subject matter… but it’s been a running joke in my family that my Dad kiiinda looks like Kevin Spacey, so it’s always unnerving to see “his” face staring out at me from the week’s collection of media.
Once we get over that little familial hurdle, there’s a stack of great-lookin’ games this week: Elite: Dangerous looks spectacular, the new characters for Disney Infinity 2.0 have my heart, and the cars in both F1 2014 and Forza Horizon 2 simply race off the screen. (And then there’s Sharknado: The Video Game, which we feel obligated to mention but we’re not sure why.)
