As the world returns to some semblance of normalcy and we can actually peek out of our respective hidey-holes at society re-starting outside, I’m not sure how much of a draw video games will be this month. You know, apart from them being a multibillion dollar industry and all that. Still, quite a few good-looking games coming out. Let’s run through them!
The Colonists (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch)
Sayri: The Beginning (PC)
Skate City (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Resident Evil Village (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
My gaming group of friends are all about this one. Hopefully it’s as good as it looks, though we’re worried about other PvP teams griefing us from the vault to the winch.
Hood: Outlaws And Legends (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
It’s always a concern when release dates get bumped, and that’s what happened with the Valhalla DLC.
To deliver a more refined experience, we’re sharing that:
⛰️Wrath of the Druids will now release on May 13

I used to love Assassin’s Creed, but with the de-emphasis of stealth and lack of true character development in ancillary characters, I don’t know. The last few have been beautiful but uninspired in many ways. I haven’t finished one since the amazing Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which featured Jacob & Evie Frye as inspired leads and also had a number of incredibly well-developed Templar enemies as well.
That’s a hell of a lineup. I’ll always love Maxwell Roth. What a character!
Actually, now that I think of it, I did finish Origins, but kind of made it only halfway through Odyssey and Valhalla so far. They’re both pretty, but something feels missing. Maybe it’s just me.

Monster Harvest (PC)
Hooooo mama! I’ve alerted everyone I know that once the Mass Effect remaster comes out, I might not be heard from for months. Subnautica looks fun too. You know you’re doing something right when the trailer gets almost 3 million views.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
Subnautica: Below Zero (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Before We Leave (PC)
Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind (Switch)
Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir (Switch)
Days Gone (PC)
You have to appreciate throwing money at the trailer to get a Bowie song to set the mood. This game looks so damn pretty.
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey (PC)
Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed (PlayStation 4, Switch)
I’ve read some iffy things about Rust’s console launch, especially if you’re not on next-gen consoles, but it’s still intriguing.
Rust (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Knockout City (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Biomutant looks to have a Farcry-meets-Outer Worlds-meets-Breath of the Wild vibe. Translation: I’m going to play the everliving shit out of it.
Biomutant (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster (PlayStation 4, Switch, PC)
King of Seas (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
