John Wick Hex 


Anime fans aren’t the only ones who get to see their favorites break-out into video games.

A weird but wholly fresh game this year is “Maneater,” in which players play as a shark seeking revenge in shallow waters. You grow from a baby shark to an adult while munching on seals and humans alike, putting even “Jaws” to shame. Also, there is a lot of attacking boats and outwitting the people on them. This game is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Switch and Xbox One.


Spelunky 2 


For something a little “cuter,” try out “Spelunky 2,” a side scrolling game that has added online multiplayer. With a nice art design and updated features such as turkey riding, the developers have made it fresh for old fans and exciting for new ones. Check out all of the new characters in this PC and PlayStation 4 game coming out Sept. 29.  


Star Wars: Squadrons
