We come to May's games which a better month then I thought it would be after the two PS4 and two Xbox One games got delayed thought some more would be.

As I follow a few people that talk game salezzz with games as whole doing well with Animal Crossing tracking to do over 20m for instance but physical seems to be taking a dip for likes of Animal Crossing, Final Fantasy and Resident Evil the argument could be made that digital would be selling less if physical were available but people do want these games physical as FFVIIR is going for $100+ sealed on eBay at the moment in the states and in the UK around £55 for a used copy.

That you can understand Sony delaying Last of Us 2 due to production as that along with the three games I talked about I could see people picking up from their local GAME which they can't do and this is no knock on the games coming out this month but even the biggest game isn't one that I see having a huge pick up on a whim demand from GAME, it does feel like people who would want it would just order from Amazon.

Jet lancer

Wasn't Ion Fury the game with the controversy around the devs? Did you miss TW101 on Wii U or just wanting to go back?

Yeah their PR was a mess over a homophobic slur that was on an item in game but has since been removed according to this article.

I did play TW101 on wii U but I feel I didn't give it a fair shot before I stopped playing it.

Still seems a dodgy company to be supporting. Meh

I will be buying nothing this month. I wish it had been long enough since I last played Xenoblade for me to pick it up again: it hasn't. Then again, I didn't think I'd be playing Animal Crossing...

I totally get what you's are saying but think how many folk are attached to dev teams these days and now think how many people on each of those teams are bottom of barrel arseholes such as the homophobic one on the Ion fury team. Should I really not buy a game I think looks good just because of one out of those fifty people are ignorant?

If it was one person who made this game then sure it'd be easy to not buy, but here I can easily separate it because it isn't just one person who made this game.

I will attempt to purchase Animal Crossing a second time I think, given how much time I've spent playing it already. That's it for me this month!
I was sort of interested in the new Xenoblade, but a mate of mine was describing his frustration at the weird mechanics while playing XC2, and that was like "I'm out". *continues to play Breath of Fire on SNES.

You're not wrong, as I know it's rather different but me with Konami and you must know for instance how Jim Sterling feels about them but he did do a video where he was like it's not everyone at Konami makes the decisions and unfair on who worked on the Castlevania Collection (it was something like this) as they would likely having nothing to do with the shite Konami does do.

Just reading that article and what I do know, it seemed a bit of mess the whole handling even if just one guy on the dev team put it in and I will be passing.

Xenbobob and that'll be my lot. A backlog month for the most part, methinks!

This is a much better month than it has any right to be, will probably get Xenoblade as it's time I gave that a try but probably nothing else. Will get Wonderful 101 at some point but I'm in no rush to play it.

I should probably finish Xenbobob 2 before I pick up the first for a third time; I’m hoping I can talk Matty into playing it though, as he never has.

I want to pick up Wonderful 101 eventually, but I haven’t even re-bought Bayonetta for the Switch yet.

Ion Fury can fuck off though. It seems like way more than one bad actor to me, that studio is rotten to the core.
But whatever, there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism.

Yep, that's my feeling - it doesn't feel like one bad apple (like, say, JonTron in A Hat in Time), it feels like the company direction.  That article you posted, Jas: it doesn't feel like the second bit, where they keep the 'Ogay' jab in because (screechy voice) 'free speech', is the work of one man.  It feels like they got other people in the company in to help make that decision, and what they finished up with panders to a rather unpleasant crowd.  The donation to the Trevor Project is nice but feels like tokenism to appease.

No completely ethical consumption maybe, but there are different degrees.  

Anyway, Nintendo use conflict minerals in their machines so 🤷 Not sure what degree that is. Perhaps buy the game but also make a donation to LGBT charities, like the company did?

Pretty sure it's impossible to ensure you avoid conflict minerals in tech production

I'm not going to update the list every time something changes but seemingly starting as Sodessco (something like that) are delaying two of their games physically because of production issues but will come out digitally, SEGA announced though a Hatsune Miku game coming to the eShop.

Nintendo Life also put a article up talking to devs about things going on and just seen that Baluders Gate 3 will be put back a bit because of what's happening.
