New Retail Releases
The Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (PS4 and Xbox One). Originally released as a download-only game back in May, The Old Blood is a budget-priced prequel to last year’s excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game brings protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz back to the frontlines of World War II where he’ll have to do battle with a horde of Nazi Zombies and other mutated monsters.
