On The Shelf: Out this Week!

Hello, and welcome to On The Shelf, your weekly source of top gaming releases. Last week was pretty quiet on the release front, and it looks like the gaming universe doesn’t wish to atone for last week’s sins.

However, as we edge ever closer to E3, the gaming releases will no doubt slow down which isn’t uncommon.

Therefore this week’s On The Shelf will only feature two releases, please see the below.

Release Date: May 5, 2017
Platforms: PC, PS4 & Xbox One

Prey is an Action-Adventure Sci-fi game developed by Arkhane Studios, the developers behind the Dishonored games. You will play as Morgan Yu, a human aboard a space station which has been overrun with Alien hostiles. Decisions you make throughout the game will affect your ending. Can you scavenge and find enough resources to survive?

Dreamfall Chapters
Release Date: May 5, 2017
Platforms: PS4 & Xbox One

Dreamfall Chapters is a 3D Adventure Sci-fi game developed by Red Thread Games, the game first featured on PC with episodes releasing between 2014 to 2016. The game is set in parallel words: One a futuristic cyberpunk version of Earth referred to as “Stark” and the other is Arcadia a magical fantasy realm. The game focuses on exploration and solving puzzles, also story based choices are heavily featured in this game. The Console version of Dreamfall Chapters features plenty of enhancements including reworked character models, improved animations, special effects and more.

My thoughts: Initial game play for Prey looks great, the game looks dark, eerie and down right scary. So if you’re into that I recommend that you buy that.

However, after playing Dreamfall Chapters last year on the PC I can confirm that the game is well worth the money.

The choice is yours, will you be picking up either of these games? Let us know is the comments below.
