Coming to Stores: May 1st Edition

I’ll be honest. I ALMOST didn’t do a release list this week. Don’t get me wrong, the two games coming out look great. But two games are coming out this week. Is that worth making a new post, doing some format changes, trying to find some music to listen to, looking for that “killer pic” and then sending it on to be edited? In short- yes, it was. Enjoy the light week; it picks up in a few.. ~ Don

Please note dates are subject to change, and these do not account for digital releases, which can sometimes be as important as retail releases. Don’s personal picks are highlighted in red.

Console

Multi-platform:

  • Tuesday, May 1 ~ Sniper Elite V2 (PS3 & X360)

Store shelves won’t be bulking up this week, but what is lacking in quantity looks to making it up in quality with the one release coming out. Sniper Elite V2,  a sniper-centered game (shocker, right?), takes place during World War 2. Instead of running around with guns blazing, V2 is focuses on precision. I found a nifty gameplay video to share, so enjoy.

Handheld

Sony Playstation Vita

  • Tuesday, May 1 ~ Mortal Kombat

We’ve covered the latest Mortal Kombat game twice now, and there are never enough good things to say about it. Now, the story-driven fighter finds its place on the Vita. Taking advantage of the hardware and packing more unique challenges, this edition lets you take the MK that everyone raved about last year with you anywhere. FINISH HIM!

Are you buying either of these? Why/why not? Let us know in the comments below!
