This month in video game screenshots

We take a look at the upcoming video game release for the month of May in screenshots.

While April surely wasn't anything to write home about , May promises to be a month filled with highly anticipated releases. There are plenty of reasons to get excited if you're a gamer, so make sure you check out our slideshow of our top picks for this month.

The classics get an upgrade in May as Bionic Commando and Punch-Out!! make their debuts. While both titles greatly differ in terms of content, each developer has remained true to the title's respective roots in order to satisfy gamers both new and old.

May also sees the first-ever PSP game to be released digitally. That's right, no UMD for Patapon 2; it's a download-only title.

Nintendo Wii owners may want to check out EA Sports Active. It's very much in the vein of Wii Fit, as the game is designed to help you exercise.

What games are you looking forward to in May?
