Games of May 2017

It’s that time again!

Sorry for being a week late but sometimes things just don't line up the way we wish they did. Alas, here is the list!
So last week we had the following release including the long awaited Trails in the Sky 3rd Chapter. I'm a bit sad to not see a PSP/Vita release but maybe that's for the best after my Vita crashed and I lost my save data... I won't feel so bad for jumping into it on the PC!

Tuesday May 2nd

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series Season Pass Disc - PS4, XB1

Last Tuesday saw the launch of both Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy from TellTale Games and the Boss' Review of the first chapter!

Flatout 4 Total Insanity - PS4, XB1

I think... that I just watched a trailer for a Mature Mario Kart. I'm intrigued to say the least.

Wednesday May 3rd

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd - PC

Before I had a chance to fall in love with Trails of Cold Steel, I was in love with Estelle, erm, Trails in the Sky! In all seriousness though Estelle is a hell of a character and I'm kicking myself for not having put her on my Top 5 Favorite female character in video games.

And now for the rest of the month!

Friday May 5th

Prey - PS4, XB1, PC

I would have to look up if the new Prey has anything to do with the old Prey. I know it's a google search away but the intrigue is much more interesting. Speaking of intrigue, hostile aliens have overrun the Talos I space station and you must use mind-bending powers and unique weapons to decide the fate of humanity.

Tuesday May 9th

Birthdays the Beginning - PS4, PC

I want plushies of all of htem. Seriously. All of them. Birthdays the Beginning is all about playing God and watching the super cute world grow. Did I mention the plushies?

Tuesday May 16th

Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy - Vita, PC

The next chapter in the New Tokyo Legacy is here. With Nick having originally reviewed it on the Vita, Richard having reviewed it on the PC, and me having played both, who's diving into the next chapter and what will we think? Come back and find out soon!

The Surge - PS4, XB1, PC

Dark Souls, Lords of the Fallen, Bloodborne and even the new upcomming Code Vein all have one thing in common that The Surge doesn't. They are fantasy settings while the The Surge has gone a high tech route. I'm hoping it works out!

Oh, Deck 13 also made Lords of the Fallen so they know what they are doing.

Akiba's Beat - PS4, Vita

Looks like the stripping days are over! This next trip to Akiba looks much more music based and seems to take itself more seriously. Looking forward to seeing how it plays out compared to stripping vampires of their clothes and stealing their weapons.

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds - Vita

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds is A remastered telling of the beloved Hakuoki series that focuses on the story set in Kyoto with Never-before-seen episodes and character routes have been added to the original version of the game, introducing more romanceable targets, new minor characters, and plenty of new paths to seek for yourself!

Injustice 2 - PS4, XB1

NetherRealm Studios are back with more DC brutality with the continuation of Injustice. If it was possible, Injustice 2 looks even better than Injustice: Gods Among Us did.

Farpoint - PSVR

Farpoint looks good and seems like one of those good reasons to have a PSVR. I have to wonder if they'll do a non-VR versions for the rest of us.

Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop - 3DS

Cooking Mama is back and I hope your sweet tooth is ready because you're going to need it!

Thursday May 18th

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs

I've been looking forward to this one for a while. Regalia is one of those SRPGs that just looks like it's going to be good.

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days - PC

I still remember the first time that I watched the movie. Should we have even been allowed? Heh probably not. Did we enjoy it? We certainly did.

Friday May 19th

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia - 3DS

Is it already the time for the next entry? Wow time goes by fast as I swear that the previous one just came out. This'll be one of those interesting beings as changes are being made to longtime series staples. Here's hoping that it stays just as good and innovates forwards!

Tuesday May 23rd

Don't Starve Mega Pack - PS4, XB1

It's big. It's bad. It's back for some crazy time with your friends, the rein of giants and maybe some shipwrecks!

Disgaea 5 Complete - Switch

Not quite the platform any of us were really expecting but we'll take it dood! Going over to the Nintendo Switch instead of the Vita, could that be some foreshadowing of even NIS moving away from it? I doubt it after a few of their recent releases such as A Rose in the Twilight but it makes one wonder.

Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada - PS4

There are some good titles coming out this month and what better to add to the batch than more Samurai Warriors!?! I can't think of anything.

Portal Knights - PS4, XB1

This is one of those smaller interesting titles on the list this month. Using the classic Trinity of classes dive through multitudes of portals and have fun!

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception - PS4, Vita

Try saying that title three times fast! With the release date just around the corner the good news is that there's more to come this fall!

Summon Night 6: Lost Borders - PS4

The latest in the Summon Night series is coming out! Pack up your PSPs and dust off your Vitas or get your PS4s ready as it's right around the corner!

Friday May 26th

Friday the 13th: The Game - PC

I... I'm not quite sure what to think. Shouldn't this have waited for Halloween or something?

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers - Switch

I don't think I've anything to say. Here's another *insert echoes here* version of Street Fighter II.

Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 - PS4

Here's another fighter that doesn't need any introductions and the latest entry of the series is here.

Tuesday May 30th


I was a huge fan of Tequila Works' Deadlight. It was awesome. RiME is looking good for a whole other set of reasons and the gorgeous artstle mixed in with adventure elements is one that I want to play.

Aven Colony - PS4, XB1

Aven Colony makes me think of a somewhat crazier version of Ubisoft's acquired Anno.

Star Trek Bridge Crew - PSVR, PC (VR)

Speaking of Ubisoft, and entirely unintended, they've got a VR version of playing out Star Trek's Bridge crew.

Lock's Quest - PS4, XB1, PC

I had never heard of this until recently much less having known that it was originally on the DS. That's right. The first one. Revamped for the new generation of home consoles and the PC I'm looking forward to it.

The trailer is also awesome. Skip to 1:00 if nothing else!

Wednesday May 31st

Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! - PS4 , Vita

Finally on the very last day of the month Cladun Returns with This Is Sengoku! making one hell of a leap from the PSP to the PS4 and the PSV. I'm looking quite forward to this one!
