It’s slim pickings if you’re in the market for a new game this week. Mid-May can’t get here soon enough.

If I had to recommend a game releasing this week, I’d probably pick the downloadable title, Awesomenauts. However, this game may not even actually release on schedule, as the publisher recently filed for insolvency.

What are you playing this week?


  • Awesomenauts (PSN)
  • Mortal Kombat (Vita)
  • Sniper Elite V2 (PS3, 360)
  • Tera Online (PC)


  • Fable Heroes (XBLA)
  • Awesomenauts (XBLA)


  • Nexuiz (PC)
