Cyber Cititzen Shockman 3: The Princess from Another World

May 3 – PS5/PS4, XBOX, XBOX 1, NINTENDO SWITCH

Originally released in 1992, Cyber Citizen Shockman 3: The princess from another world brings another blast from the past!

After Sonya wins a big prize in the lottery, she and Arnold travel to a tropical southern island to enjoy some well-deserved holidays.

However, paradise soon turns into hell when a strange spaceship appears all of a sudden and starts attacking the city.

Unable to just sit around and do nothing while chaos unfolds, Arnold and Sonya transform into Shockman and head to battle this new mysterious enemy!

Did you play this game in 1992 or ever since? Let us know in the comments.

SUMMARY

This week the easy answer seems like Sea of Thieves being added to PS5. I’m drawn to pirate games and need to revisit that one on PC. Played it on Game Pass a little bit. Braid is one I already own and it didn’t grab me quite as hoped for, but maybe will give that another shot someday. Motorcycle games are a racing subset I’m interested in and feel like I’ve played at least one of the MotoGP’s in the past. All in all, this week has some promise, but no titles jumping out at me saying “buy this now!” What about you?
