And to round out the biggest month of the year so far, we have a stonker of a line-up. Mass Effect: Andromeda. Dreamfall Chapters returns. 88 Heroes uses a quirky mechanic where you have 88 seconds to compete every level. And then there's an unusual game with a boy and a troll that I swear didn't channel anything from The Last Guardian.
This is the Police (PS4, XBO)
What is it? The console launch of the strategy game about being a corrupt cop.
Should you care? Luke found it was more than a touch tone deaf.
Freedom Planet (PS4)
What is it? Imagine a better, more modern version of Sonic.
Should you care? The voice acting is horrendous, but anyone who likes the classic Sonic games should absolutely check this out.
Toukiden 2 (PS4)
What is it? An open world action-adventure where you're tasked with slaying the menace that is the Oni.
Should you care? It's a game about samurai hunting demons. Come to think of it, it's been a real good month for samurai.
What is it? I genuinely don't have a fucking clue. It looks like the creator was on acid 24/7.
Should you care? Just watch below. I promise you won't see anything better today.
Touhou Double Focus (PS4/Vita)
What is it? A chibi-style action platformer.
Should you care? Probably not this week, but fans of this sort of stuff will always be able to come back to it.
Touhou Genso Wanderer (PS4/Vita)
What is it? Same universe as above, but it's a chibi-styled roguelike.
Should you care? The UI looks pretty clunky, but your mileage may vary. I'll be giving it a wide pass.
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk (PS4/Vita)
What is it? Third-person action slasher where you slay demons and all sorts of possessed folk.
Should you care? There's a scene in the game where a damsel in distress is nearly sexually violated by a possessed horse No thanks.
Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey (PS4/XBO)
What is it? The series that began with April Ryan returns, but it's Zoe Castillo saving Stark and Arcadia all over again.
Should you care? All of the episodes are out now, which is good if you're a fan of the originals.
88 Heroes (PS4/XBO)
What is it? A platformer where you have 88 heroes, 88 levels and 88 seconds to complete each level.
Should you care? Looks entertaining in a Broforce kind of way.
Zero Escape: The Nonary Games (PC/PS4/Vita)
What is it? 9 people are kidnapped and trapped in a series of rooms. Either they play the game and work out how to escape, or die.
Should you care? The Zero Escape games are great if you love that Saw or diabolical type of puzzler. The visual novel styling might put some people off, but if you like puzzlers give this one a second look.
Mass Effect: Andromeda (PC/PS4/XBO)
What is it? Explore the galaxy all over again with Bioware's latest grand space opera.
Should you care? Seems a silly question, but yes.
Troll and I (PC/PS4/XBO)
What is it? A third-person adventure between Troll and his boy companion Otto as they struggle to survive.
Should you care? This is a lot more combat heavy than The Last Guardian, and you can switch characters at any time so don't expect any comparisons to Trico.
Worlds of Magic: Planar Conquest (XBO)
What is it? A new strategy game for the console with turn-based combat, resource and magic management.
Should you care? Want to see what a 4X plays like on the console? Here's your chance.
Rayon Riddles – Rise of the Goblin King (PS4)
What is it? A puzzler about helping the goblins escape from the tyranny of the orcs.
Should you care? The trailer looks real janky.
