New Video Game Releases for the Week of May 11, 2014

The new video game releases for the week of May 11 feature an eclectic mix of zombies, psycho midgets, and poison potatoes. With Nazis on the horizon next week with Wolfenstein: The New Order, there really are not a lot of new games out this week. Perhaps they are in hiding as the biggest of the new releases is actually not a new release, but a hand held port of of Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita. And an impressive port it is.

Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita not only comes with the complete game, but 6 DLC packs including: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, the Psycho and Mechomancer Character Classes, and the Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Upgrade Pack as well as the Collector’s Edition pack according to the PlayStation Blog.

Minecraft will also be getting a physical disc release for the PlayStation 3 and will include all updates up through title update 14 including Emeralds, Anvils, and poison potatoes. The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft saw a physical release in April of 2013 and versions are in development for the PlayStation 4, PS Vita and Xbox One.

Gamers who think that the Nintendo 3DS needs more shooters will be happy at the release of Moon Chronicles. The original Moon released on the Nintendo DS in 2009 to tepid sales. Now, 5 years later, developer Renegade Kid is re-releasing the game in episodic format on the 3DS eShop in 4 episodes. The game has been rebuilt from the ground up to run at 60 frames per second in 3D or 2D. Support for the Circle Pad Pro as also been introduced.


Elsewhere in the list of new video game releases hides the latest episode for The Walking Dead Season 2, the stylistic action-platformer Blood of the Werewolf, Neverwinter expansion, Curse of Icewind Dale, and finally the lab rats vs. cats action game Scram Kitty and His Buddies on Rails.
