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 Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 – In Sheep’s Clothing (PC, Xbox 360 & PS3, May 27th)

Yup, another new Telltale episode already — they finally seem to have their schedule nailed down. This is the penultimate episode of The Wolf Among Us, so expect some twists, turns and major revelations!

This Week’s JRPG

Mind Zero (PS Vita, May 27th)

Just can’t wait for the next Persona game? Well, Mind Zero might just tide you over. Like Persona, Mind Zero is split between visual novel sections that take place in a “real world” Tokyo, and dungeon hacking in a crazy demon-filled spiritual realm. Really, it’s kind of a brazen rip-off, but it looks pretty solid.

This Week’s Horror Game

Among the Sleep (PC, Mac & Linux, May 29th)

Want to play a horror game that will bring back the terror of being a little kid afraid of the dark? Well, then Among the Sleep is the game for you! Played from the perspective of a helpless two-year-old, Among the Sleep looks harrowing as s–t and I can’t wait to start my toddle through hell.

This Week’s Kart Racer

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U, May 30th)

It’s been a long wait Wii U owners, but it’s finally here! Mario Kart 8 is Nintendo’s first game that really seems to take advantage of the Wii U’s HD horsepower — it looks great, it moves fast, and new anti-gravity karts add a whole new mind-bending element. Oh, and by the way, you get a free game with Mario Kart 8, so if you’ve been on the fence about the Wii U for a while, now’s really the time to take the plunge.
