Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 & Wii U, Apr. 29th)

Spider-Man games have mostly stuck to a predictable formula since the early 2000s, but hey, it’s a good formula, so why mess with success? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will likely be another solid outing for everybody’s favorite web-slinger.

This Week’s Indie Horror Game

Daylight (PC & PS4, Apr. 29th)

One part survival horror, one part Roguelike dungeon crawler, Daylight tasks you with finding your way out of a procedurally generated haunted hospital, with glow sticks, flares and your cell phone’s flash being your only weapons against the horrors found within. Genuinely creepy looking, with potentially huge amounts of replay, Daylight will likely be one of this year’s standout indie horror titles.

This Week’s Golf Game

Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS, May 2nd)

The citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom have once again agreed to briefly call off the kidnapping and head-stomping for a quick back-nine in Mario Golf: World Tour. If you’ve played past Mario Golf games, you know what to expect — a surprisingly deep golf experience with a nice thick layer of Mario-flavored icing on top.

This Week’s Kirby Game!

Kirby Triple Deluxe (3DS, May 2nd)

Kirby! Kirby Triple Deluxe is one of the pink ball’s more conservative outings, sticking closely to the traditional float ‘n’ suck gameplay, but what the game lacks in innovation it makes up in polish. The game looks and sounds amazing by 3DS standards, and just generally seems to be a lot of fun. You know you want it.
