Hades is finally making its way to Xbox and PlayStation platforms which is a huge boon for everyone because more people should play Hades. It’s so good that I’m considering just playing it again on Xbox because I don’t have access to my Epic Games Store version at the moment. It’s just that good.
I Am Dead is making its way to other platforms besides PC and the Nintendo Switch and I’m curious. It looks like a very neat puzzle game that’s giving me Room and Ghost Trick vibes based on the launch trailer.
I never played The World Ends With You, but I kept hearing about for years. And now there’s a sequel and I feel that if I ever want to check that out, I should go back and check out the Nintendo DS classic.

I should be tickled pink by the upcoming collection of Great Ace Attorney games. They’re finally making their way out west! However, I’m currently one or two games behind in the franchise. I know these games are completely separate from the mainline Ace Attorney games, but I still feel the obligation to play those first.
I haven’t played nor finished many 3D Zelda games. Ocarina of Time? I started it, but never finished. Twilight Princess? Nope. And I own two copies of that game. As for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD? I definitely did not play that. I believe the only two 3D Zelda games I finished were Wind Waker and Breath of the Wild.
The second Monster Hunter game for the Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter Stories 2, launches today. I didn’t even know there was a Monster Hunters Stories 2 until they announced the sequel! I like the art style, but I have no idea what the game is about or how it plays. I think there’s a demo which could answer my questions though…
A Plague Tale: Innocence is coming to PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection for the month of July which removes all possible excuses for me not to play it. By all accounts, it seems to be a fine game filled. With a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X upgrade coming July 6 as well, it’s probably the best time to get it on this rat filled survival horror game.

Scarlet Nexus looks pretty good? I think it has a neat style, but that’s about all I saw of it that resonated with me. When I look at the cover of the game, all I can think of is anime Ewoks. The game looks like it’s a decently reviewed action RPG, but these days, I need a little bit more than decently reviewed to convince me to invest into one of these games.
Metro Exodus received a significant update including ray-tracing with the Enhanced Edition. I have access to all the Metro games now so the only thing stopping me from playing them is desire and at this moment, I have no desire to pursue these kinds of games.
I actually own PlayStation 3 copies of all three games from the newly released Ninja Gaiden Master Collection. I enjoyed the first two Ninja Gaiden Sigma games, but never played the third one. I was considering selling the PlayStation 3 versions and picking up the remastered collection, but I hear they are poor ports which is very unfortunate. These games deserve a whole lot better.
