The Video Game Librarian Pick of the Week is Rock Band 4 (PS4, Xbox One), a glorious encore for the band simulation series from Harmonix. Featuring full compatibility with nearly all PS3 and Xbox 360 instruments, Rock Band 4 is perfect for fans who want to jump right back into the genre on their PS4 or Xbox One.
Also of note this week is Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (PS4), a compilation that brings the first three Uncharted games to the PS4 for the first time; and Transformers: Devastation (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One), an action game set during the cartoon franchise’s “Generation 1” era. Both games should appeal to nostalgic players and those looking for a new action game.
