Max Morales was a blast, and Demon Souls Remake was a spectacle, but PS5 owners have been chomping at the bits for a real meaty next-gen experience. That time has come as the sharp minds over at Insomniac Games are readying the latest entry into the popular Ratchet and Clank franchise. Rift Apart promises to take us to a place that a lombax had never been before, but does it take PS5 players to newer heights? Here's the review roundup:
YES!!! IT'S FINALLY JUNE! No, we are not all caps typing because of the many potentially great games are coming out this month, but June is traditionally known to gamers as our 'Christmas in Summer' due to the annual hosting of the Electronic Expo (otherwise known as E3). This year's staging is made even more special due to the fact it will be the first all-digital showing, as well as the fact that we missed out on the 2020 version thanks to Covid. Ok, ok, enough of the many new games to be announced and time to turn our attention to those we know are arriving this month. Here are the best games releasing this June:
This game is already a guaranteed multi-million sales success story for Capcom largely due to the massive hype that has already been generated long before launch. (And, for good reason.) After its stellar predecessor RE7, RE8/Village is set to crank everything up 11 when it comes to gameplay, presentation and story (and tall vampire women).

But May brings with it a sense of optimism with a bevy of heavy hitters set to launch starting with the return of a beloved storied franchise.
The PS5 is now 5 months old and although it launched with amazing exclusives Demon Souls and Max Morales, the hype train since had been cooled somewhat. We are still stuck in that weird cross-gen phase right now which may be view as the main culprit for the lack of true PS5 experiences. Hopefully this lull is coming to an end with the launch of the exclusive Returnal. So, was it worth the wait? Here's the roundup:
NieR Automata was one of the best games of the PS4/Xbox One generation. It was so good that by the end of the credits, I was already chomping at the bits for more. It seems Square Enix heard my cries and decided to give me a "new' game in the series this month. NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139... is an updated version of NieR Replicant, previously only released in Japan. Should Automata fans be excited to return to the NieR world? Or better off waiting for Automata2? Here's the roundup:
