New Video Game Releases for the Week of 5-12-19

With E3 2019 just under a month away, there haven’t been as many eye-catching video game releases these days. I’m still chewing through my bucket list of 2019 games I put on the backburner, and this week adds two more major ones to the pile: Rage 2, and A Plague Tale: Innocence.

I missed out on the first Rage, but everything from the Canadian Walmart leak of the game’s announcement to the neon-colored contrast in an apocalyptic world has me tickled pink. A Plague Tale: Innocence, however, denies most attempts at saturation, providing a very bleak survival scenario full of stealthy desperation.

Other than that, there’s the Castlevania Anniversary Collection coming out Thursday that may garner some attention. Alt-Frequencies is an audio mystery game that tasks the player to utilize radio waves as clues as a detective would—it also features some voice talent I’m particularly fond of, most notably, to me, is Jasika Nicole (Welcome to Night Vale, Alice Isn’t Dead).

Ruine, They Came From the Sky, and Necrolance each offer a modernized take on nostalgia with old school soundtracks and art styles, but that’s about it this week. As always, the bold titles are the games that piqued my interest — everything is for PC unless stated otherwise.
