Thought it was going to be a quiet month? Think again.

As we continue through May, the upcoming release window might not feel very star-studded - but to call it a quiet month would be entirely wrong.

With E3 coming up in the not so distant future, industry titans have begun to hold their cards closer to their chests - and the truly huge, console-exclusive games come to a trickle. That said however, exclusives aren't everything in gaming.

Indeed, there are a whole load of unique and fresh games to explore throughout the release cycle in May, standing back-to-back with the AAA industry's lesser-insured ventures - you just have to dig a little bit to find them.

Are you into fighting games? This is your month, with titles from Capcom, Arcsys, and NetherRealm all launching only ten days apart. Are you a huge fan of horror? Illfonic is bringing a classic slasher back from the dead in a multiplayer experience. Strategy RPGs? Magic-based FPS shooters? Baseball arena brawlers? Yes, yes, and yes: the month of May holds all of these and more.

No matter what your tastes are, there's certain to be something this month that tickles your fancy.


Fan of professional wrestling and fighting game enthusiast. While he insists Street Fighter V isn't as bad as you think, he will agree that it's kinda crap anyways.
