NBA 2K13 was a monstrous release for the world's 1 NBA video game franchise, with more than 38 Sports Game of the Year and 'Best Of' mentions. NBA 2K14 will raise the bar yet again, providing the best basketball gaming experience for legions of sports fans and gamers around the world.
rain is the enchanting tale of a boy who embarks on a journey to save an invisible girl from ghostly creatures. Upon entering the world he discovers that he has also become invisible and must learn to navigate through the unknown, using the rain to guide and protect him.
20 years after the original game's launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the most acclaimed franchises in gaming history. It is Flashback re-imagined.

To quote: Journey through a haunting city soaked in rain, or blaze across the courts with a cheering crowd in your ear - this week greets a number of thrilling new releases joining the PlayStation family.
In Rain, gamers will explore the streets, alleys, and awnings of a haunting city saturated by rain. As an invisible boy, players must use the rain around them to perceive their small hero running through the world, pursuing a similarly ghostly girl, while avoiding a malevolent force. Rain blends this adventure together with unique puzzles to create a wholly original experience.
But if you'd rather go hard and go loud, perhaps NBA 2K14 will be your preferred game for the week. The next entry in the long-running series, NBA 2K14 aims to bring you the best basketball you can find in gaming. Witness the return of the multiplayer Crew mode, the inclusion of Euroleague, a dynamic living roster, and a killer soundtrack.
PlayStation will also enjoy the arrival of another PS2 classic in the form of Fatal Frame III: The Tormented. Prepare to sleep with the lights on.

The mix-and-match combat means I can get my magic fix while also smashing things in the face with a hammer, or stabbing them with a sword and other various pointy weapons, which is pretty cool if you ask me.
You may remember that last month we added Team Ico's original cult classic ICO to the IGC, so their equally beloved sequel Shadow of the Colossus seemed like a natural follow-up. Slaying the majestic Colossi should make you feel something (read: incredibly guilty), but hey, you gotta save your #1 girl, right? In a completely different vein, Plus members will also receive Poker Night 2, which is an amusing twist on the classic card game.
With GLaDOS as the dealer and opponents like Claptrap from Borderlands and Ash from Army of Darkness you can sit back, have...
