Some games and software; like XBLA games, PSN shorts and iOS games are available through the internet only – something that can be daunting for a lot of folk. Confused about what new games are available for your platform of choice? Don’t fret – we’ve got you covered.

The name Casey Hudson is spoken with hushed tones around weird parts of the internet. Following the disappointing ending to Mass Effect 3 (and the utterly ridiculous reaction to it all), Mr Hudson lost a little bit of fandom online. So you're forgiven if you'd forgotten that he left BioWare last August - but his new appointment at Microsoft is wildly exciting.

I must admit - I'm quite addicted to GTA V at the moment. While the recent release on PC has been keeping me busy with some truly fun online heists, it's the single-player that has me hooked. Sure it's often crass, sometimes silly and always far too serious for its own good, but it really is a fun ride to accompany the three crazy protagonists on. And who knows, we could finally get a bit more to chew on in the future.

Jurassic Park. It’s a magnificent movie, even if it over twenty years old now. I’ve got fond memories of the flick, as I remember going to go see it, and getting the day of my life in the process. My cinema had pulled out all the stops, back in the day when they still gave a crap about putting on a good show. They’d set up an actual T-Rex mouth to walk through, the cups were branded with Jurassic Park insignia and my straw was essentially a decapitated Brachiosaurus. Good times man, good times. Can Jurassic World recapture that magic? Can Lego Jurassic World reignite my nostalgia? The answer to that, is a very definite…maybe.

E3 is just a few weeks away, but EA felt necessary to share release date details about some of their most anticipated titles before taking the stage this year. Aside from Star Wars: Battlefront, the publisher is expected to give updates on the Mirror's Edge sequel, Titanfall and possibly new Plants vs. Zombie games. At the very least, we now know when they're all expected to hit shelves.

Revenge of the fifth? More like Revenge of the…sequel…ith…IT’S EARLY DAMMIT! Disney Infinity 3.0 finally gave up the goods and revealed itself to the world earlier. But it’s not the only new game in town. An older franchise is heading back. A franchise that was responsible for you wearing goofy baggy pants as a kid and listening to…hrrrnnngghhh…Limp Bizkit. probably. Yep, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is pulling a 1080 resurrection with a half-pipe twist.

You may or may not have heard of Spark Unlimited. They were behind a few less-than-successful, not particularly critically acclaimed games, like Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Legendary. More recently, they’ve been doing work for other publishers, working alongside Capcom to create the nearly decent Lost Planet 3 and the mostly-awful Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. They’re now gone.

I'll forgive you for forgetting that Dragon Age: Inquisition, last year's stellar RPG epic, even had DLC. It's been ages since Jaws of Hakkon released as a little timed-exclusive package for Microsoft platforms (sorry 360, not you), but if you've waited with bated breath you can finally let out a sigh of relief. It's coming to every other platform, and pretty soon too.

Despite the perceptions you may come across on the internet, Destiny is still very much alive and kicking. It might not have the massive, mainstream appeal people expected it to have after launch, but there still seems to be a dedicated pocket of people who love the shooting, grinding and looting fun that Bungie has on offer. And if you hang around the PvP realm more often than others, Bungie is catering to you with House of Wolves.

People may moan about Games with Gold's offering - the games haven't always been stellar, but at least they expand your library, right? Well, I think the issue this month is that none of these offerings would make we want to buy a console. Or really even play on my console. But here they are!

Mega Man is dead. Capcom’s blue bomber is still a fan-favourite, but for whatever reasons, Capcom’s slowly killed him off over the past few years. Just about every game that would have featured the robotic lemon-slinger has been cancelled – leaving it up to other companies, like Nintendo, to keep his memory alive. There’s still hope. Mega-Man creator successfully kick-started Mighty No 9, a game that Mega Man in everything but name. It’s getting a retail release.

Just over a month ago, we surmised (based on conjecture, rumour and hearsay) that Gears of War was being remastered and re-released for the Xbox One – likely as a collection of the first three games (forgetting, rightfully, that Gears of War: Judgment even exists). Gears of War boss Rod Fergusson shot those rumours down shortly after they started circulating. It looks like he may have to dowse his conflagrant pants.
