    Thread concept:

    The basic idea is to list new games that you are interested in, as well as games you are potentially curious about or want to give wider attention to. You can briefly describe them or ask other people to help fill you in. The hope is that regular threads like these can act as a collective filter/discovery mechanism to help people decide what is worth checking out.

    "New games" means any new title that is being released or ported this month in any capacity (not "backlogs/what you are playing this month"). The angle here is sharing your anticipation and promoting game discovery (as opposed to sharing comments about a first playthrough in progress - that belongs elsewhere).

    .

    • If you want a handy list that covers most of the major upcoming games of the month, here's a couple text lists of upcoming games:

    Feel free to post other lists or list videos of upcoming releases that you find useful.

    • Final request: If you are the first person to mention a game please provide (at minimum) a short sentence description. (If it is a very big AAA release though, then don't worry about it.) This is a good convention that makes the thread more useful as a discovery mechanism, and especially helps out anyone who doesn't follow the news as closely as you.


  • Really weak month due to 'Rona. Until TLoUPII there is nothing worth to check out to me.

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition arrives on 5/29

    I missed this game when it released on Wii. I've heard good things from a lot of people including Ben, Damiani and Blood. Now, I have a copy pre-ordered and I'm making sure I don't miss it this time.



  • @shoulderguy

    I heard from a youtuber while they were discussing May games and it was something like this: I really like Switch becoming a platform that have all the gems from previous years.(he was talking about Bioshock Collection that time). But we can also say this for Wii and Wii U games I suppose.



  • I feel like the latest Huber Syndrome already covered this month pretty well. The Wonderful 101 is apparently delayed though. My highlight for this month is the Star Wars Episode 1: Racer remaster for Switch and PS4.

    Just for the physical release though.



  • Maneater will be my May game when it arrives on May 22nd.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maneater_(video_game)

    An action RPG in which you are a shark, ready to bite some people and evolve in the process. I've read a comparison of this to GTA with an open world and everything. Aaaand it's only 40 €.

  • @sentinel-beach

    Really curious about this one's meta score.



  • @scotty In a perfect world, Damiani would review it.



  • @mbun

    Does he hate the game?



  • @scotty I haven't heard him say squat about it. I just think that'd be a very fun review coming from him, but of course everything competes for time, and it isn't a huge game, so probably will slip through the cracks.



  • @mbun

    Oh! I thought you were saying it with the intention of something that you know Damiani said about the game.
