May Releases

Yay, it’s the monthly releases, yay! May has a very solid group of offerings. Never mind the Halo Reach Beta, let’s get to some actual real life games:

Xbox 360 banner

Week of May 3rd
Iron Man 2
Autobahn Polizei – As these two releases show, it’s a fool’s game to go up against a Halo game, even if it is in beta.

Week of May 10th
Lost Planet 2
Skate 3

Week of May 17th
Shrek Forever After
Red Dead Redemption – May certainly wasn’t looking promising until this came along. I know Nat is interested in Red Dead Redemption and after seeing the multiplayer video he posted, I have to admit I’m intrigued as well.
Alan Wake– On the other hand, Alan Wake has been getting a lot of buzz and may be a strong contender for a pick-up this month.
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands– Another strong franchise just in time for the movie later this summer.
Split / Second– Quite a strong week for the 360.

Week of May 24th
Blur– I think a lot of Blur will be getting played around these parts.
UFC Undisputed 2010

Week of May 3rd
Reader Rabbit Kindergarten– The kids love Reader Rabbit games on the computer, I’m surprised it’s taken this long to get one on the Wii. (At least this is the first time I’ve seen them on the Wii)
Iron Man 2

Week of May 10th
Winter Sports 3– Not a whole lot of games for the Wii this week, but if you’re interested in new peripherals, this is your week, especially if you’re in the market for gold Wii accessories.

Week of May 17th
Boot Camp Academy
Trauma Team
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Super Mario Galaxy 2– Yes, day one purchase here for me. I can never get enough Super Mario Galaxy.
Trackmania

Nintendo DS banner
Week of May 3rd
Iron Man 2
Picross 3D

3D Dot Game Heroes– Been hearing a lot of buzz for this game. I would imagine this will be right in Brock’s wheelhouse.
Lost Planet 2
Skate 3
Super Bike World Championships SBK– The PS3 didn’t want to get left out of the fun this May. This is a pretty solid week.

    I can’t wait for Iron Man 2 (to hit $20)!

    Seriously, not a single day one purchase on the list. Plenty of interest in many of them, but nothing I’d pay full price for.

    It’s all about Alpha Protocol next month.

  2. Hmm. Red Dead is pre-ordered from Amazon ($20 gift card rebate is a go!).

    Also, ask me why I am choosing Blur over Split/Second?

  3. I’m completely hooked on Picross 3D after a few hours of playing it. It’s EVIL.

    The games I’m really excited about this month are 3D Dot Game Heroes and Trauma Team. I want to play Blur and Split/Second but I’m not running out to buy them any time soon. Alan Wake is sneaking up on me and making me more and more interested but I’ll resist it for a bit longer.
