Welcome to Summer! As is customary in the video game industry, the Summer is a notoriously slow time for new releases, but several new games and several big re-releases will be available in stores this first week of June.
This week’s biggest new release is Capcom’s Remember Me. The developers at Dontnod will bring their dystopian future of memory hunters and arena fighting (it’s like two great Arnold movies in one!) to the PS3, Xbox 360, and the PC through Steam.
Also available this week is the disc-based edition of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Complete with all of the game’s updates, if you don’t like the idea of the Xbox Live Arcade (and considering Microsoft’s new policies, it’s understandable), now’s the best time to get Minecraft on your Xbox 360. And speaking of re-releases repackaged with tons of DLC, Bethesda will release The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Legendary Edition this week for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Skyrim’s Legendary Edition will be joined this week by Mojang’s similarly-named card battler Scrolls (PC). It will available through their website as a “paid beta,” much like the original release of Minecraft.
Finally this week, the epic “Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness” storyline comes to an end as Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4 will be released for the PC and Xbox Live Indie Games Channel on Friday.
