It’s going to be an interesting month. RAGE 2 returns, Total War is offering their take on the Three Kingdoms, and there’s a new Bubsy game. But before the juicier weeks of May arrive, we’ve got some Yakuza wrangling to do.

The PC port of Yakuza Kiwami 2, SEGA’s remaster of Yakuza 2, drops later this week. And if absurd, over-the-top adventures are your style, there’s also Saints Row: The Third on the Switch. There’s also some neat indies on various platforms, including the bus that grows bigger and bigger as you pick up passengers and the next Life is Strange 2 episode.

  • Ascendance (XBO)
  • Adventures of Bertram Fiddle: Episode 1 (XBO)
  • Legend of the Tetrarchs (XBO)
  • Shakedown: Hawaii (PC)
  • Super Space Serpent SE (XBO)
  • For The King (XBO)
  • Sky Shepherd (PC)
  • Danger Crew (PC)
  • Late City Riders (PC)
  • Thunder Paw (PC)
  • OTT TD (Switch)
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PC)
  • HOME (PC)
  • Snakeybus (PC)
  • The Tower (PC)
  • Battle for the Galaxy (PC)
  • Saints Row: The Third (Switch)
  • Puyo Puyo Champions (Switch, PC)
  • Lovecraft’s Untold Stories (Switch)
  • Life Is Strange 2: Episode 3 (PC, PS4, XBO)

Onto the trailers, starting with some gameplay of a very Good Boy with a gun and a forbidden romance between the light and dark sides of the law.

One of the quieter weeks then, although Shakedown: Hawaii – a game about basically using brute force to get people to rent videos in a world of streaming and Uber – looks a ton of fun. And Yakuza Kiwami 2 should play great on PC, as the previous Yakuza games have.


  • Before “Yakuza” was ported to PC I accidentally picked up Sleeping Dogs thinking it had something to do with the series; I regret nothing to this day having eventually found both games…
