Attack of the Fanboy

New This Week in Video Games (5/24 – 5/30)

by Dean James


As we are fast approaching E3 in only a few weeks, the various publishers are bound to start releasing smaller games to not take away from the bigger announcements of next month. Following the major release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, this week does still have a lot of releases, though only a few headliners.

The fourth episode of Telltale Game’s Game of Thrones was just given a release date in the last few days and will release across its numerous platforms this week. The other semi-major release on Tuesday is Ultra Street Fighter IV for PlayStation 4 as a digital exclusive. While still just a remake, this is the first current-gen release of the Street Fighter series regardless. PC as usual also has a lot of games coming this week through Steam, including the incredibly zany Catlateral Damage and plenty of others.

The biggest release of the week doesn’t come until Friday though and that is Splatoon. This is Nintendo’s latest IP and they hope it will grow into something special, which it is really looking like it could based on the Testfires they’ve held and all videos.
