New Releases: Week of May 16th, 2021

Coffee Memoirs: I hate mowing, yard and house maintenance in general. It is a horrible reoccurring plague to our existence. It robs us of our free time and the young man in me still wants to play games and watch anime.

I have jumped back and forth between a couple of games lately which makes me wonder how long a game usually holds our attention before we feel the need to mix it up. We can binge something new one after another and stay entertained well if the content is good enough. If we move from one item to another before its completion, we find the first usually suffers and becomes a struggle to complete. This is eerily like housework or projects around the house.

Happy Gaming!

Just Die Already
Release Date: May 20, 2021
Platforms: PC, Switch, PS4, XBO

Okay, I need to start by saying this game is unique and majorly screwed up. The gore factor is both dark slapstick and comical with a heavy twist of WTF. Reminds me of surgeon simulator meets crazy old folks/Zombie escape from prison or something like that.


Knockout City
Release Date: May 21, 2021
Platforms: PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX

I think this game actually caters to a younger audience of Fortnite and Apex Legends players with similar battle concept but offers another slightly different twist.Basically Dodgeball in a cityscape battlefield game that is launching on all major platforms at once.


Release Date: May 21, 2021
Platforms: (PC already) PS4, XBO

So, the obvious… Rust is not a new game.  However, I think it has enough interest in the PC player-base that console players might be really interested in finding out that it is clearing this hurdle to expand.  How many PC survival games make the jump to a console release anyhow?  I am not sure if it is a goal for the developers to get to in the beginning but kudos to them on this long journey.
