Are you pumped for the summer?! If not, we wouldn't rely on games too much to see you through. Unless you have a backlog just waiting to be finished, actual titles you can play play are starting to get thin on the ground. Thankfully there will be a staggering amount of new content - which will be announced soon - to get excited about for later in 2013.

For now, here's what you can think about spending your money on this week.

Recommended: Metro: Last Light - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC

Metro: Last Light screenshot

Ideal for those who are scared of the sun, Metro: Last Light throws you back into the dimly lit tunnels of a post-apocalyptic Russia and attempts to scare the crap out of you. An FPS in the more classic sense, you owe it to yourself to play this if you get a kick out of things that don't necessarily follow the standard gaming template.

Even better is that it succeeds too. Find out more in our review.

Worth a look

Is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity worth a look? That's debatable. If you're a fan of the Mystery Dungeon run of games you may be a little disappointed. Furthermore you should already know that this is not your typical Pokémon adventure. SO WHO'S IT FOR THEN?! Your mum, probably...

MJTH I had no interest in the game before, but what you discribed sounds amazing. So it's a rogue-like then?

Pokemon (the core franchise) is a fairly deep, but accessible turn based JRPG, with a popular multiplayer scene. You're trainer and you collect pokemon, in your quest to become the very best, like no one ever was. Up to six can be in your team at any one time, so team synergy in types combinations etc. Great games.

Mystery Dungeon (I've only seen the other games and played this games demo) is a dungeon crawler. You take the role of a talking pokemon (well, person who's has mysteriously been transformed into a talking pokemon). It kind of plays like dungeons of Dredmore (if you've heard of that). You're in a dungeon, and it uses a simultaneous turn/ movement system. The enemies only move when you move. You can only attack an enemies who is next to you or your party memebers, and vice versa. You go through multi-floor dungeons with your party of other pokemon and... do stuff? I don't think there is loot, you just do the dungeons to level up and get through the story...

That's about as deep as it gets. The mystery dungeon series looks like it has high production values just doesn't seem be much fun.

What's the difference? I'm not a Pokemon guy, but I understand the principle of the originals.

I never understood the appeal of Mystery Dungeon, and it appears you guys don't either. It's no surprise then to see that this game has a 64% on metacritic, and yet is the highest rated of the Mystery Dungeon franchise so far.... Of which there are 6 games...
