Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

May is just around the corner, and with it, comes the most Mexican holiday that's celebrated in the US. Cinco de Mayo, or May 5th, commemorates the victory over the invading french in the state of Puebla. Here in Mexico it's not a big deal, schools are closed for the day and that's it. For the Americans it meant that France wasn't able to support the South during the Civil War. Things would be very different now if the outcome would have been different... perhaps we would be like Canada and have a double first language.

Now, you're probably thinking, what does it have to do with video games? The battle of Puebla was like David and Goliath. The French had more and better equipped soldiers, but the Mexicans stood their ground and scored a critical hit against European invasions. In this case Goliath is our backlog and David is our willingness to finish five games during May. See? Cinco de Mayo, wink, wink.

That's right, since May has 4 and a half weekends this year, it should be enough time to play through 5 games. I know I did it last year, and this year I invite you to join us in this challenge just like we did back for #4iF.

Here's how we did last February and here are some recommended games you could give a try if you're having trouble deciding what to play next.
