vgl-pickThe Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Payday 2: Crimewave Edition (PS4, Xbox One), more or less by default. Game publishers typically avoid releasing new titles during the E3 Expo and Overkill’s cooperative heist sim was this week’s only retail release.

vgl-pickThe Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Lego Jurassic World (3DS, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One), a game adaptation of the four Jurassic Park films using Lego bricks. The “Lego _____” series has produced hit-after-hit and they’re popular with kids, families, and adults. Not only are the games in the series easy to pick up, but they’re often very funny too. The new film broke all sorts of box office records and I’ve got equally high hopes for the game.

vgl-pickThe Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Splatoon (Wii U), Nintendo’s entry into the team-based shooter category. But instead of gruff military guys, Splatoon is populated by kids who have the ability to transform into squids. They use this power to literally paint the map and the object isn’t to get the most kills (though you can still do that), but to cover more of the floor with your team’s color.
