Have a solemn Memorial Day and don't forget to toast for the ones who gave it all

NEWS

Concept is gonna win Spiel des Jahres but it's nice to see SOS Titanic and Potato Man get on the recommendations list. Also nice to see that Mattel has a game in the Kids category and it hasn't been released here.

Wasteland 2 gets a release month, sometime in August

• I really liked the iPad version of Sorcery and I hope their next game is good. Watching people who have failed before you is a nice slightly borrowed mechanic taken from the Souls games.

Lucas Pope, dude who made Papers, Please announced his new upcoming game. It's called Return of Obra Dinn and it sounds really cool.

Sure, it's being released alongside Tomodachi Life but really it's for all the BBW lovers out there with a Rosalina colored 2DS.

You know it's bad when even Ubisoft is like "nah, we're not gonna show any Wii U or 3DS games at E3"

• So you like cheese and have about an hour and a half to kill? Fan film Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist has finally been released

Need dem stereotypes, the Left 4 Dead arcade game gets a school girl main character. Oddly her skirt is knee length and doesn't show off her rack.

Kaz Hirai: PS4 is already profitable on a hardware basis.

• In the same speech, he said that about half of all PS4 sales are connected to PS+. About the same ratio that Microsoft found during last gen.

• Am I going to wait for reviews on the game next week? Sure but this video makes me very interested in Murdered: Soul Suspect

Samsung looking to get in on the fun as they're prepping to release their own VR headset. Wonder if it will be out before the Rift

• Sony continues to baffle everyone on promoting games. On Wednesday they tweeted that they were going to show something from The Order which ended up being a 3 minute Twitch stream that they repeated three times and then stopped the stream and then tried erasing every thing about it. Game looks great graphically but I wish they would show something other than the TPS covershooter gameplay. Hopefully the chatter on it not coming out this year is wrong (I highly doubt it's wrong though)

Nordic and 4A Games are getting in on the re-releasing games bandwagon with a collection of the two Metro games. If it gets more people to play these games, I can't be too bugged.

Evolve gets a release date, it's joining the glut in October on the 21st. So many games are going to get overlooked that month and bomb sales wise.

• First 2:40 of this video is great. After that it quickly goes downhill

Faceboook/Oculus and Chuck E. Cheese is looking to give every kid pink eye.

Info on the upcoming ZeldaXDynasty Warriors game, Hyrule Warriors.

• Shadow of Mordor story trailer? Shadow of Mordor story trailer

NEW RELEASES

Watch Dogs (PC, PS3, 360, Xbox One) - Well, this game would have been in a better spot if it released earlier but it's finally coming. It's supposed to be coming to the Wii U sometime this year but don't be surprised if it's not quietly dropped and never comes. It's a modern day Assassin's Creed from people who have obviously never actually been to Chicago. Your phone will do everything, even give you a blowjob. It's an Ubisoft game so if you're interested, just wait a month or so and pull it out of a bargin bin.

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U) - Gonna go out on a limb and say that Nintendo is gonna wish they brought this out on the 3DS as well. Just a hunch. It's Mario Kart, you should know what you're getting yourself into with this game. It will be interesting if this gives the Wii U a bump of life. Also curious that per Digital Foundry's findings, the game has a duplicate frame every 64 frames (which they say causes an interesting stutter).

Monster Monpiece (PSVita) - Like skeevy stuff? This is the new one to hit our shores be it censored a bit (they took out some of the looking 1000 year old witches that look pre-prubecent). This was supposed to be out a few months ago and then it didn't come out and is now coming out. It's a CCG game with cards that you level up as you beat and rub down the female monsters. From all reports, the gameplay is actually good but it's something you shouldn't admit that you're playing nor let anyone see you playing it. It's a bit raunchy

Mind Zero (PSVita) - Stay away, this game is BAD.

Twitter crap
