What Gamers Want for the Week of 5-23-16: New Video Game Releases

Depending on your gaming preferences this could be an expensive week of new video game releases for you. The biggest release is Blizzard’s Overwatch, but we’re also getting a new TMNT game and a new Total War game to check out. If you’re into the Indie scene Lumo looks amazing, and the Super Snazzy Edition of Not a Hero is coming out for the Xbox One. Fans of Mr. Holmes can also take part in his latest investigation thanks to the release of The Devil’s Daughter.

Our Recommendation

I’ll come out and say it but you don’t have to agree with me, but Overwatch is the game to pick up this week. I haven’t had the type of fun I experienced in its open beta in years, so I can’t wait to return to its awesomely styled world and characters for the full experience this Tuesday. The new TMNT looks tempting too, but if you want a sure think you should consider Not a Hero: Super Snazzy Edition, which is a great Indie cover-based shooter with extra content for the Xbox One.
