Welcome to a new weekly feature, aptly titled ‘Whaddaya buyin’?’ – our weekly gaming release table for those looking to get a quick look into the upcoming week of gaming titles. As known, our podcast Operation PlayStation has ‘The Drop’, named after the PlayStation Blog’s notorious release post that has been retired for quite sometime, however we’re looking to cover weekly releases across the board from all major publications, on all major platforms. We’ll also include our recommendations for those that aren’t too keen on what may be fresh on ballot, and update our picks as we go.
This Week: May 8 - May 14
- Cook Serve Forever – Steam Early Access (PC)
- The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (Switch)
What more is there to say? It’s Zelda week, and we all know where our wallets are heading. It’s time for us gamers to return to Hyrule once more with Tears of the Kingdom landing this Friday. Cook Serve Forever is also available today on Steam for those that love their cooking sims with a little Action-RPG twist for added flavour.
Last Week: May 1 - May 7
- Age of Wonders 4 (PC, PS5, XSX/S)
- Redfall (PC, XSX/S)
- Showgunners (PC)
- Jected – Rivals – Steam Early Access (PC)
- KAKU: Ancient Seal – Steam Early Access (PC)
- Knight Crawlers (PC)
- Hogwarts Legacy (PS4, Xbox One)
It’s the calm before the storm this week with one major player on the list in Redfall, on May 2. The game is currently making waves for its glaring performance “issues”, albeit a title that’s anticipated nonetheless. Hogwarts Legacy is re-released for PS4 and XBOX One for those yet to leap into next gen consoles, but gives players a chance to experience the Potterverse, first-hand.
The Backlog - Our Recommendations
- Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores DLC (PS5)
- Dead Space (PC, PS5, XSX)
- Metroid Prime Remastered (Switch)
- Octopath Traveller II (PC, PS5, Switch)
- Resident Evil 4 Remake (PC, PS5, XSX)
- WWE 2K23 (PC, PS5, XSX)
No changes to The Backlog this week;
Adding Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores to our recommendations, it’s a nice little package of games we undoubtedly back for all gamers to check out. I would not pass-up Resident Evil 4, especially those that love their survival-horror’s. The title will make everyone’s Game of the Year list, without question.
