Are you ready to rock? Because it's time to dust off those old plastic instruments for Rock Band 4, which is set to release tomorrow. But there's a time to rock and there's a time for action and this Friday marks the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4. Civilization: Beyond Earth will get its first expansion with Rising Tide. The Incredible Adventrues of Van Helsing will get three adventures in one with its Final Cut. Chibi-Robo stars in his next handheld adventure with Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash. And finally, VR enthusiasts may want to look into Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, a game Shacknews first looked at back at IndieCade last year and is now set to release on Steam this week.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
