May Releases

 Lost Planet 2 (May 11) - Xbox 360, PS3, PC

A sequel that promises giant bosses, four player co-op, and a vast array of weaponry. You go from shooting the outside of a 10 story salamander one minute, to jumping inside him to pump bullets directly into his heart. As far as scale goes, it seems like an impressive title you may want to check out.

Red Dead Redemption (May 18) - Xbox 360, PS3

The developers of GTA bring you another GTA...but western. Instead of stealing cars and running over hookers, you are getting into bar fights and having old western shoot outs. The game looks incredibly promising, with the open world feel and a slew of missions and classic western fun.

Alan Wake (May 18) - Xbox 360

A psychological thriller set in the Northwest. Looks much like Silent Hill, but more focused on combat. This survival horror looks to promise plenty of scares. The enemies, called "the Taken" in the game, are sensitive to light, encouraging the player to take advantage of environmental light sources and placing significant emphasis on the flashlight as a primary weapon.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (May 18) - Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC

Ditching the cell shaded look of the last installment, Prince of Persia returns to bring more time-stopping and platforming parkour. Taking place in the seven year time between Sands of Time and Warrior Within, you once again play as the prince. Promising sword battles with at least 50 dudes at one time, this a game you may want to check out.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (May 23) - Wii

The sequel to the Wii hit, letting you once again take control of Mario as you jump, fly, and...produce clouds through the galaxies. This time around Yoshi will make an appearance, and a more difficult and complex set of platforming has been promised in hindsight of the relative ease of the first. Expect new suits, new challenges, and the same classic fun the first game offered.
