Keeping track video game releases isn't as easy as it once was -- the volume of games released each week is constantly expanding, and they're spread over a mind-boggling array of platforms (consoles, PC, Mac, handhelds and mobile). Well, I'm here to make things a little easier on you. Every week I'll rattle off five games I think you should check out. These articles are not meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week -- think of them as a nice rounded tasting menu. Each week I'll try to highlight several games from different corners of the gaming landscape (handhelds, consoles, indie, PC, you name it) then finish up with a "Pick of the Week". Hit the jump for the five games you're going to want to check out this week.
Dynasty Warriors 8 -- E3 2013 Trailer
The Serious Sam Collection - Official Trailer
E3 2013: Time and Eternity Trailer
Time and Eternity is a JRPG with weird, kind of crude hand drawn, anime-style graphics. The story involves you witnessing the death of your fiancé at your own wedding, then travelling back in time with her and her alter ego to find the killers. I told you it was weird. I'm not sure if Time and Eternity will actually be good, but it looks like a must-have for collectors of strange Japanese ephemera.
Also, even if you don't usually watch the trailers I attach to these articles, you need to watch the one above. It's, uh...something else.
