New Video Game Releases for the Week of 5-14-17

The games coming out this week seem to have crept up out of nowhere. Tuesday brings us a fair amount of options, including a heavy hitter (hopefully) for Team PSVR.

Farpoint comes out on the 16th and has the potential to help establish a relevant foundation for virtual reality within the industry. Tuesday, additionally, marks the release of the super-powered fighter Injustice 2, and the Dark Souls-influenced, sci-fi action RPG, The Surge. Empathy releases on PC this Tuesday, as well; keep an eye on Entertainment Buddha later this week for a review.

If you’re more of a Microsoft or Nintendo fan, you should look forward to the release of Black & White Bushido on Wednesday (X1) and Thumper on Thursday (Switch); both look pretty intriguing. As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.
