The Week In Games: White House Down

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: White House Down

Prepare to collect some loot and beat the DC heat, The Division 2 launches this week on PS4, Xbox One and PC. I played a lot of the first game and after playing the beta for the upcoming sequel, I’m excited to jump back into the grind. Oh and I’m excited to close so many car doors. SO many car doors.


Every time someone mentions Washington, D.C. someone else seems to respond with “It’s so hot down there. It’s basically a swamp.” Is it really that bad? I’ve never been to our nation’s capital so I have no idea. I grew up in Florida, so I’m fairly used to humid heat. But maybe D.C. is worse? At least there are some cool looking monuments to look at while you melt.

The Division 2 is one of the biggest releases this week. However, Switch owners get a whole new selection of games this week, anime fans get One Piece: Wolrd Seeker and LEGO lovers get a nice collection of previous LEGO Marvel games. No Vita or 3DS games on this list. Are these aging handhelds finally dead? Tune in next week to find out!

Aren’t you the same guy that wrote the article about it being “okay to stop playing” in which you list The Division as one of the games you were forcing yourself to play even though you weren’t having fun? Now you’re excited to jump back in to the grind?

Maybe take your own advice.
