The long awaited summer months are upon us, as this Friday is indeed the first of May!

But while the sun may be plentiful and comforting, this week in new video games contains some hyped titles worthy of your examination.

This Wednesday, Banjo Tooie, the famed sequel to the masterful original hits the Xbox Live Arcade and is sure to send gamers down memory lane with odd flashbacks of those glorious N64 days.

Also on Wednesday, Stalin vs. Martians, a mock of the RTS genre pitting the notorious Stalin against a bunch of little green men hits PC a week later than anticipated, but here nonetheless.

On Thursday, Velvet Assassin, the hotly anticipated World War 2 era stealth-oriented title hits PC and Xbox 360.‚  The title is inspired by the real life British agent Violette Szabo, and puts gamers behind enemy lines vying for quick and silent modes of eliminating enemies.

Finally, on Friday the first of May, X-Men Origins: Wolverine hits every possible platform, but you probably already know this as the marketing for this title has been absolutely insane.
