From Us to You! Reviews the First Half of 2015 in Gaming

As 2015 nears its midpoint, Mike, Kat, and Jaz sit down to talk about Cities: Skylines, Bloodborne, Axiom Verge, and the rest of the year's top games.

It's almost June, which seems unfair. It really should still be February. But there have been quite a few good games to this point; and with the year nearing its midpoint, it's worth taking a breather and looking back on the year so far.

Jeremy is on this road this week, which means Mike is at the helm for this episode, with Jaz and Kat offering backup. We cover Cities: Skylines, Pillars of Eternity, Project CARS, Bloodborne, and several more of the best games so far, most of which we also wrote about here.

As usual, opinions vary heavily on what has been the best game this year. Naturally, you probably have opinions of your own! Feel free to share them in the comments below.

We wrap up with some of our thoughts on the year ahead, and whether 2015 has lived up to expectations. The general concensus is that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are both beginning to find their footing; and with the likes of Halo 5, Persona 5, and No Man's Sky on the way, there's still plenty to look forward to. We'll know soon enough.
