Vote Now for April 2019's TA Playlist Game

By Mark Delaney, 6 days ago
When TA Playlist kicks off in a few weeks on April 1st, it'll be the beginning of the game club's third year. Time flies when you're dissecting video games, as they say. For the start of year three, we're asking you to save the day with a superhero of your choice. Four genre games — albeit very differently styled — are up for debate and out to earn your vote. What'll it be next month?

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Scarecrow

Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a dark and atmospheric adventure that takes them into the depths of Arkham Asylum –Gotham City’s high security psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Use Batman’s legendary gadgetry, strike from the shadows, and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious super villains.

Injustice 2

Injustice 2 2

Power up and build the ultimate version of your favorite DC legends in INJUSTICE 2.
•EVERY BATTLE DEFINES YOU: With every match you'll earn gear to equip, customize and evolve your roster.
•A NEW THREAT RISES: Picking up where Injustice left off, Batman struggles against Superman's regime, as a new threat appears that will put Earth's very existence at risk.
•THE BEST OF DC: Choose from the biggest DC Universe roster ever and battle across iconic locations in epic scale battles.
•BUILT BY NETHERREALM: Developers of the best-selling and critically acclaimed MORTAL KOMBAT franchise.

Saints Row IV

Enter the Dominatrix

The epic conclusion to the game that changed all the rules! The Saints have gone from the crackhouse to the White House—but the Earth has been invaded and it’s up to you to free the world from Overlord Zinyak and his alien empire. With homies new and old by your side, and an arsenal of superpowers and strange weapons, you must save the world in the wildest open world game ever!

South Park: The Fractured But Whole

2

Create your own superhero and unveil the darkest conspiracy South Park has ever faced!
From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes South Park: The Fractured but Whole, a sequel to 2014's award-winning South Park: The Stick of Truth. Players will once again assume the role of the New Kid and join South Park favorites Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman in a new hilarious and outrageous RPG adventure.
As always, any version of any game will count toward your TA Playlist participation badge on your profile. This month, that includes two lists for Injustice 2, four for Saints Row IV, and a massive six stackable lists for Batman. Saints Row IV has been Games with Gold before and along with Batman is in Games Pass currently. Pick your favorite, the one sitting in your backlog, or the one you think would generate the best discussion — or choose based on something totally different! We'll have results posted in a week. Until then, it's not too late to solve this month's ongoing case: L.A. Noire.
