This Week in Games: May 2 – 7

Procedural dungeon crawlers, cinematic samurai, living the last month of your life, rolling dice on a space station and teenage mutant amphibians means you have a big week in gaming ahead of you this week But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with something a little intense with Loot River. This is a procedurally generated top down rogue-like (that is a lot of words) but basically think of Diablo in it’s prime with a generated dungeon and hordes of black demon’ish creatures who are thirsty to taste your sword. This one hits Xbox and Steam on Wednesday.

Sitting somewhere between Sifu and Ghost of Tsushima is the fairly epic looking Trek to Yomi. We got a look at this first a few years ago but it looks just as epic now as it did then. Playing out like a classic Japanese Samurai film and even keeping with the tone using only black and white you try to make good as a young swordsman who promised his master he would protect a village but failed. Check out the trailer but definitely look for this one on Thursday for PlayStation and Xbox or Steam on Friday.

Also in the possibly deep story driven  hole you might have found yourself in is Best Month Ever! a story following a young woman with only a month to live trying to fit as much as she can into teaching her son before she is gone. Aside from a few minigames the main adventure section of this one looks pretty good even if it might be an emotional wrecking ball by the end. Look for it on Steam this Thursday with Xbox and Nintendo Switch releases out on Friday.

And lastly is the tabletop gaming meets management sim in space of Citizen Sleeper. Take on the role of an escaped worker ending up on a washed up space station. Keep the station running from a combination of decision making and dice rolls. This one comes to Xbox, the Switch and Steam on Friday and also on the Epic Games store on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to some classic gaming from Komani with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection. Coming to PlayStation the collection includes 13 TMNT games spanning from the Ninja Turtles Arcade, across the NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis and Gameboy, basically a lot of Turtles. This is coming to all major platforms but its out this week for PlayStation on Monday.
