New Video Game Releases for the Week of 5-28-17

As E3 looms ever closer, new game releases are beginning to fall upon deaf ears thanks to the speculation revolving around the expo. That said, the new games coming out this week span quite the array of genres, which should give everyone something to occupy their time until (pre)E3 news starts flowin’. If Injustice 2 isn’t doing it for you and you’ve still got that fighting game itch, Tekken 7 might just do the trick this Friday.

If that’s none of your concern, look to Tuesday for more of a selection. Victor Vran offers a few alternatives to the typical mechanics found in isometric action RPGs, and looks like a welcome departure from the tried-and-true Diablo formula. Lock’s Quest, a wicked little action/tactical RPG originally released on the Nintendo DS back in 2008, gets released on PC, PS4, and X1 on Tuesday, as well. Titanfall 2 gets its Monarch Reigns DLC pack on the same day, but it fights among the rest for attention preceding Tekken 7‘s release. PS4 (and PC) owners looking for an interesting take on the 2D brawling action platforming sci-fi genre (right?) should not overlook Randall, though.

Looking for something a little weirder (and maybe “new”)? Perception places you in the shoes of a blind woman as she explores via echolocation by tapping her cane on the ground. Shit looks rife with jump scares. I don’t know how I feel about it.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
