This week has a couple of violent games, some robots, and a few violent robots. I promise there's still variety here though, from the dodge-rolling Dark Souls Remastered, to the zombie-slaying State of Decay 2, to the decision-making Detroit: Become Human. The Kickstarter bonus Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon arrives too, alongside Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 on Nintendo Switch.
State of Decay 2 -- May 22
Available on: Xbox One, PC
State of Decay 2 is expanding its world, and this time, you can attempt to survive in it with friends in four-player co-op. Together, you can build up your base, level up your people, and travel the world looking for other survivors in need.
Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 & 2 -- May 22
Available on: Switch
The Blue Bomber's adventures are coming to the Switch, and you can download them separately from the Eshop or buy the first on a cartridge with a packed-in download code. Either way, you'll be getting Mega Man's six NES outings and four SNES adventures, plus new remixed challenge levels. You can even scroll through artwork from the series' history in the virtual museum.
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon -- May 24
Available on: PS4, Vita, Xbox One, PC, Switch, 3DS
When Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was on Kickstarter, it passed a stretch goal for an additional, 8-bit game. Here it is. Curse of the Moon stars a handful of characters, each with their own abilities you can use to access different parts of the map. Chances are you'll still encounter monsters in just about every corner though.
