“Top Five Unexpectedly Great Games”
There is no better feeling as a gamer then when a game exceeds your expectations. Maybe it was a bargain bin purchase at a local retailer, or a title rescued from development hell that was doomed to fail, or even something that just didn’t fit your personal tastes and you took a chance on it. For the month of May, the GameFocus staff reflects on what video games they have played that were unexpectedly great!

Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled.

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
As we may all know, Splatoon is the latest major exclusive title from Nintendo and it will be hitting stores later this week (May 29, NA). Its announcement at E3 2014 shocked many, strictly because of the fact that Nintendo was making a shooting-game. Yes, a shooting-game; it still sounds weird to me, too. In Splatoon, players take control of a human-squid hybrid as they attempt shoot, roll and “splat” a given area with more of their team’s ink than their opponents. The game relies heavily on its online multiplayer mode, although a single player experience is included in the game. Its cartoony art style and Pixar-eqsue character models make the title feel more at home on the Wii U, but the concept itself is still odd for the archetypical family-friendly company. A playable visualization of the game recently became available in the form of “Splatoon Global Testfire”, a one hour gameplay demo that went live five times over two weekends. I got the chance to sit down and test the peculiar game for myself. Here are my impressions…
