It’s that time of the week again to check for noteworthy game releases for PC/Steam, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch via Metacritic. We also discuss these games live on the High Noon with Hollywood Polo stream at noon Tuesdays PST (GMT-8) here: https://www.twitch.tv/playgamesmoredotcom including commentary from other PGM members, wishlist interest and more.

Nine Sols is a lore rich, hand-drawn 2D action-platformer featuring Sekiro-inspired deflection focused combat.

SQUAD BUSTERS

May 29 – Mobile

We don’t normally focus on mobile games only — as this release schedule would be ridiculous to cover each week — but this release is a bit more noteworthy, hence the inclusion.

Humanity

May 30 – XBOX, XBOX 1

A unique blend of puzzle-solving and action-platforming, HUMANITY puts the fate of all mankind in your hands. Er, paws. Did we mention you’re a dog?

Tiny Terry’s Turbo Trip

May 30 – PC

Terry wants to launch himself into space using his new car. Doing something this cool and reckless will surely make him the talk of the town. Run, drive and glide through this small journey of big discoveries as Terry works towards achieving this goal.

Would be more interested in this one if it was multi-player. Racing with and/or against other people is too much fun. This is more adventure than racing, but there could at least be a racing mode added to it.

F1 24

May 31 – PC, PS5/PS4, XBOX, XBOX 1

Join the grid and be one of the 20. Drive like the Greatest in EA SPORTS™ F1® 24, the official video game of the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship™.

The price will likely dissuade me at launch, but I love racing games and this is more pro-oriented. It’s a type of game I haven’t explored nearly enough, but want to someday more. Bought many racing wheels over the year, but never really setup a pro rig.

SUMMARY

A comic book character fighting game — FREE, too, bonus! — returns, another animated strategy game, plus a pro racing game yearly release and an adventure game with racing? This is a pretty good release week gaming-wise. Are you excited about playing any of these games?
