The video game release list of 5/16-5/22

AAA games flee before The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and L.A. Noire, fearful to release in the same week as these two much-anticipated games. Smaller, cheaper, downloadable titles and downloadable content are unphased by this, though. On that front, we're getting Sega Rally Online Arcade, the Honest Hearts DLC for Fallout: New Vegas, and Terraria, which I shall lazily describe as "kind of a bit like an action-oriented 2D Minecraft."

If you're somehow not interested in any of those, there's a a colouring-in game on DSiWare and some Wii titles that'll teach you how to read.

Don't get your hopes up over anything downloadable on PlayStation 3. The PlayStation Network is still down following the hack, Sony isn't sure when it'll be be back up, and it's unclear what will happen to new releases when it does return, considering the ever-growing backlog.

Here's the list of next week's releases:




Xbox 360

PlayStation 3



Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo DS

*At the time of publishing, the PlayStation Network is still offline.
