Kalvin Martinez / Jun 7th, 2015 No Comments
The first week of June is upon us. As expect it is going to be a few sleepy weeks of new releases until we arrive at the juggernaut that is E3. There are a few releases coming out this month worth your attention that aren’t called Batman: Arkham Knight. This week sees the console release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for some MMO action, a new twist on Mario’s painful malpractice in Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure, and some signature zaniness in Lego Jurassic World.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – PS4, Xbox One – June 9
The fate of Cyrodiil is on the line as three alliances fight in the heat of battle to claim the heartland of Tamriel. While the Daggerfall Covenant, Ebonheart Pact, and the Aldmeri Dominion are in the grips of war, a larger danger is approaching. The Daedric Prince Molag Bal is plotting to swallow up Tamriel into his Oblivion realm and make slaves of all of Tamriel. Not only will you have to work to forward your alliances’ cause, but you’ll need to help foil the sinister plan of Molag Bal.
After being out for a year on PC and a lengthy delay, The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO) is finally heading to consoles with its new Tamriel Unlimited rebranding. TESO launched last year as a paid subscription model, but dropped its subscription model in January. Now only requiring the base game to enjoy what the game has to offer, it may be worth a look. The Elder Scrolls Online takes you all across Tamriel from Skyrim to the Black Marsh. Many dungeons, ruins, and quests await for you to discover.
Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure – 3DS – June 11
Mario of the world famous Mario brothers is a well-known plumber with a penchant for committing reptilian genocide. However, when he isn’t dealing with leaky pipes and kidnappings, the plucky and portly Italian he moonlights as a medical professional. The lesser known Doctor Mario is back with Miracle Cure for the 3DS. Prepare to prescribe pills to take out pesky viruses in this downloadable adventure.
In Miracle Cure, you can take on viruses in either classic-Dr. Mario style gameplay, the more recent Dr. Luigi-style with L-shaped pills, or Virus Buster mode. Miracle Cure features a new spin on Dr. Mario with the introduction of Miracle Cures, which are useful power-ups that can aid your ability to treat viruses. These power-ups can help get you out of some jams in the endless Dr. Mario or Dr. Luigi modes. You can also challenge friends locally or online in some pill dropping battles.
Lego Jurassic World – PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS Vita, 3DS, PC – June 12
