Top Game Releases in May
This has been a pretty good year for gaming. Sure there was a stumble early on known as DC Universe Online - corporate greed no doubt contributed to that fail-job; but if you can manage to tear your eyes away from that traffic accident, it's shaping up to be a good year.
This month looks sweet, too. Here are a few of the games likely to rock your gaming world in May:
Brink looks to be a frenetic, multiplayer, combat game set in a post-apocalyptic future - one that seems to be devoid of women. Aside from the notable absence of females, at least in the sample videos, Brink looks a little like the old Half-Life: Deathmatch, except with some serious updates graphics, physics, and weaponry.
The game also promises a new combat system, that should make it easier for you to focus more on killing and less on moving.
Brink is from Bethesda Softworks the developers of the Elder Scrolls RPGs and Fallout 3. While Bethesda has a good track record, they've never done a game like Brink. But good development studios tend to make good products, so Brink will probably be a fun game.
He's back! The Witcher is back and gamers everywhere are rejoicing. The Witcher was a phenomenal RPG that basically took everyone by surprise. It came from CD Projekt, an unknown, untested, gaming studio in Eastern Europe.
Did anyone expect The Witcher to be a success? It was a phenomenal success. An entertaining, dark storyline and innovative combat system made the game a joy to play.
Chances are good the sequel will be just as much fun.
You don't own a console??? You've never played Fable? Well, you're in for a treat. Fable III will be available on May 17th and this time it's coming to the PC. If you've never played it before, get ready. You might not pull yourself from the PC for days. This game will destroy your sleep schedule.
Have fun gaming. You might want to call in sick in May.
