New Releases: Week of May 8th, 2022


Happy Mother’s Day to all the gamer moms and moms of gamers! Lots of cool looking stuff is coming your way this week. I’m most excited for a full motion video mystery and of course the latest Evil Dead game. In fact I’m so all in on Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell even though I’ve seen maybe two Marvel movies we’re heading to see Dr. Strange in IMax 3D later today.

This action RPG is a prequel to Eiyden Chronicle: Hunted Heroes. You begin as a treasure hunter but soon take on a journey to help a town rise from ruin. 


Salt and Sacrifice

You’ll go beyond the sanctuary in this sequel that includes online multiplayer. You play as a Marked Inquisitor hunting Mages that plague the realm. The art style looks pretty neat.


We Were Here Forever

Release Date: May 10, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO/X/S  


I love puzzle games so I’m surprised I haven’t heard of this franchise before. It's the 4th in a series of co-op puzzlers where players communicate by voice and not see each other’s environments. You and your partner are trapped in a scary Antarctic castle and need to escape. Although if it's Antarctica how are you supposed to get home even if you manage to escape the castle?!


The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story

Release Date: May 12, 2022

Platforms: PC,NS, PS4/PS5 


Oh man I love full motion video mystery games! You follow a chain of  murders that plague a family over a century trying to uncover the truth. Looking forward to checking this out!


Evil Dead: The Game

Release Date: May 13, 2022

Platforms: PC, PS4/5, XBO/X, NS 


I’m all in for anything that involves Bruce Campbell! Check out the video above of him playing with his son to showcase the game. This has co-op gameplay as well aPvP combat and voice acting from Ash, Kelly, and Pablo from the Ash vs. The Evil Dead TV show. There is a single player campaign but it requires an internet connection for some reason.
