2014 is flying by and May looks set to be another mega month in the gaming world. From League of Legends All Star Championships to major game releases there’s something for everyone in a month that typically doesn’t have much going for its self apart from the odd bank holiday, ok so that’s quite good! But with a range of new games and exhibitions this month you’ll be stuck for choice.
Here at WeBuyGames we have reviewed the All-Star Championships and picked out several key games to look out for this month!
Love League of Legends? Well May sees the return of the League of Legends All-Star event. Taking place from Thursday May 8 to Sunday May 11 in Paris the event will showcase some of the world’s best teams and pro-players.
The tournament has been divided into two separate events with The All-Star Invitational acting as the highlight of the four-day event. Regional winners of the NA LCS, EU LCS, LPL, GPL, and OGN Championships will battle it out for $50,000 and the title of All-Star Champions 2014.
The second event All Star Challenge will see two representatives from each region split into two mixed rosters. The two teams will compete on different game modes, voted for by the fans.
Streaming for both events will be accessible via https://www.twitch.tv/riotgames
Marvel’s favourite superhero is back in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With more web slinging and scaling buildings the game offers an alternative take on events in the latest action packed Spider-Man movie.
Extra features allow you to play as the superhero’s alter-ego Peter Parker, roam and explore a more expansive Manhattan cityscape and perform new fast-paced, acrobatic combat moves which make fighting scenes more excitable and realistic.
Missions have been redesigned to allow gamers more choice. Instead of linear missions, users can now choose how they approach a certain mission. For instance it’s now up to users to decide whether they take a stealthy, silent approach or take on enemies with all webs blazing!
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is now available on Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Nintendo Wii, Wii U and 3DS.
Everybody loves Mario! And he’s back alongside a cast of characters in the latest edition of the Mario Golf series. Combining standalone sport games with the famous Mushroom Kingdom you don’t need to be a golf enthusiast to enjoy this comical game.
You’ll be able to tee off on a number of new courses and compete in a range of tournaments which will see you head underwater and even on top of a volcano for a round of golf, only in Mushroom Kingdom eh?
New game play features allow players to control each shot with slice and backspin adding a realistic feel to the game. Mario Golf: World Tour is now available exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.
The gaming industry has come along way since Wolfenstein 3D was released in 1992. Setting the standards for first-person shooter games the 90’s classic is set to return with Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game has been completely modernised while staying loyal to its roots. Set in an alternative 1960’s era where the Nazis won the war, B.J. Blazkowicz is tasked with saving the day and defeating an army of giant killer robots and mechanical dogs.
It’s up to you to guide B.J. Blazkowicz through waves of Nazi extremists and a variety of battles designed to test gamers. With a range of weapons to use throughout and puzzles to solve Wolfenstein: The New Order oozes class and tradition.
The game will be released on May 20th and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as 360 and PS3.
Saving the best till last, Watch Dogs is arguably one of the most anticipated launches of the year. Released later this month it looks set to be epic!
As Aiden Pearce, you’ll control a former thug whose family were involved in a violent tragedy and now you want revenge. Using the city’s Central Operating System as your weapon you’ll be able to download personal data, access security cameras and control traffic lights to manipulate your enemy.
It promises to be a unique adventure and we can’t wait to get our hands on it come May 27th. Available on a number of platforms including Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
