May is going to be a big month.  It’s the start of summer blockbuster season and the month of some long-awaited releases.  Here’s just a taste of what I’m most looking forward to.

Video Games

witcher

The Witcher 3:  Wild Hunt (Releases May 19, 2015)

If I disappear for awhile, at least you’ll know what I’m doing.  This game looks both beautiful and massive and I seriously cannot wait to get my hot little hands on a copy of it.  I have it pre-ordered for the Xbox One but could easily be switching now that I have a PS4.

Splatoon

Splatoon (Releases May 29, 2015)

I’m still on the fence about this one.  It definitely looks like tons of fun and my poor WiiU could definitely use some love.  I will have to check out some reviews before I pick it up, though.

Movies

Avengers

Avengers:  Age of Ultron (Releases May 1, 2015)

This movie just screams SUMMER.  I’m not hard to please when it comes to action flicks and I don’t think this one will disappoint.

Board Games

No definite plans to purchase any new board games in May (haha, I have too many already).  Here are a couple that look interesting to me:

Chew

Chew: Cases of the FDA (Expected Release: May 29, 2015)

Based off the comic book of the same, in Chew you play an agent of the FDA whose job is to investigate food related crimes.  Solve cases by recruiting allies, finding clues, and sabotaging your opponents – you have to work quickly before the other players can steal all of your glory.

Cacao

Cacao (Expected Release: May 20, 2015)

A Tile placement game akin to Carcassonne.  In Cacao, you play as a tribal chief who must lead your people to prosperity through the cultivation and trade of, well, cacao obviously.

Books

Walking Dead

The Walking Dead, Vol. 23: Whispers Into Screams by Robert Kirkman (May 12, 2015)

Collects issues #133-#138.

Lois Lane

Lois Lane: Fallout (Lois Lane #1) by Gwenda Bond (May 1, 2015)

The first book in a new YA series that centers around Lois Lane.  I’m pretty excited about this one.  It’s getting good reviews so far and at least it’s something slightly different for the YA genre.

Music

The Desired Effect

Brandon Flowers – The Desired Effect (May 18, 2015)

This will be the second solo album for The Killers’ front man Brandon Flowers.  I have seen The Killers in concert a few times and they’re always pretty amazing.  I enjoyed Brandon Flower’s first solo album and I will definitely be checking this one out.
