Game Rant Monthly Game Guide May 2013

With April behind us and Q2 2013 in full swing, May looks to be an exciting month as well, bringing several big name and indie releases – not to mention a rumored Xbox-related reveal from Microsoft on the 21st. There’s a lot to look forward to in May, so let’s get into it!

May kicks off with Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for Windows and Xbox Live, indie hit Fez for Windows, and Might & Magic Heroes VII expansion Shades of Darkness, also for Windows. The much anticipated Metro: Last Light finally drops mid-May for PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows; and Fast & Furious: Showdown races across all major systems shortly thereafter. Finally, the month closes out with GRID 2 for Windows, PS3 and Xbox 360; and classics Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages find their way onto the 3DS.

    Nothing this month for me.

    Enjoying the crap out of the injustice and June will bring me the last of us. So I’m cool for now. Finally got my 50th online win. Kinda a big deal for me cuz I’m very new to fighters lol

    hahaha… there is nothing. no retail game that interests me.

    the only game there that grabs my attention is FarCry blood dragon but i really want to play farcry 3 first. i know they ant sequels and you dont even need farcry 3 disc for it but i want to play farcry 3 first. right now i aint planning on buying it cause it can get cheaper, ive waited this long so i can wait longer.

    also, wasnt this the month Last of Us was originally meant to come out? there is literally no competition for it so i bet ND are kicking themselves XD. still, the game is gonna sell well. so much hype for it.

    I haven’t played Deus Ex yet, so I definitely want to check that out. Plus, I really want to see what they’ve done with Leisure Suit Larry. I remember when they used to make good Larry games. Although, I hate to admit it, I did kind of enjoy Magna Cum Laude.

    I’m actually glad there isn’t too much I want this month, garage sale season just kicked in so most of my cash has been going to that. Last week I found a boxed Atomic Purple GBC and a boxed Flame GBA SP, on the same day. :)

      Well, I WAS looking forward to playing Deus Ex this month, but now it’s been delayed until “sometime in 2013″. :(
