First of all, I screwed up last week and included Resistance, so if it looks copy-and-pasted.. well, it is. Second, being on the verge of E3, we really don’t have much else to occupy our time leading up until the show. A few games were originally scheduled to come out this week but got pushed back to June and July (I’m assuming so they could show off at E3). Either way, a few games are still releasing, making them that much more.. appealing? ~ Don

Playstation 3 only:
- Tuesday, May 29 ~ Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland
The third installment in the series, NIS’ Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland takes RPG gamers on a quest through Arland. Featuring an in-depth item synthesis mechanic, this looks like it should satisfy anyone in need of some JRPG action.
- Tuesday, May 29 ~ Deer Drive Legends 3D
Maximum Games brings the hunt to your 3DS with Deer Drive Legends 3D. Deer Drive Legends 3D has multiple areas to hunt and over 30 animals. A $30 USD hunt sounds a lot cheaper and warmer than buying a rifle and traveling the world.
Sony Playstation Vita
- Tuesday, May 29 ~ Resistance: Burning Skies
The Vita finally gets its first multiplayer first person shooter, Resistance: Burning Skies. Offering deathmatch, team deathmatch and survival modes, you’ll be able to compete over Wi-Fi (sorry, no 3G – for obvious reasons). As a fan of the shooter genre and a Vita owner, this is exciting and I can’t wait to check it out to see how it performs in a competitive manner.
