New Releases – May 2017


A few titles out this May. Not much that warrants an instant buy, but there’s some items of interest.

Prey might not be the follow up to the 2006 game that many people had hoped for, but it is a game by Arkane Studios with writing by Chris Avellone. That alone should be enough to have your attention, but it also allows you to transform into a set of folded towels.

 

Oh, and here are those towels…

Injustice 2. Netherealm’s beat em’ups might not be the best mechanically, but they sure know how to make great single player games out of them. Injustice 2 adds to the lore of the alternate world DC series, and switches out characters for one’s that are currently in the spotlight. Which is great, since it means we get Supergirl. As usual with WB and Netherealm, there’s no word on a PC version, but it’s pretty likely considering the history of the series.

Locoroco Remastered. Sony again prove they don’t really know how to handle their own IP. Locoroco was a great game for the PSP and had a terrific sequel. Rather than keep it going with more games for the Vita, they had a bizarre spin-off on PS4 and then nothing. Oh well, a remaster of the original is better than nothing.

Samurai Warriors Spirit of Sanada. Warriors games seem to come out pretty relentlessly these days. Spirit of Sanada is a spin off of the main Samurai Warriors series, adding a more detailed story and attempting to add more innovations into the large scale battles. It’ll be interesting to see if they can reinvigorate the series and steer away from the task based formula of the main series.
