And by “right now” we really mean a two to three week period! Yep, it’s this again! Lazygamer, along with Kalahari.net, have a list of the most drool-inducing games for the next three weeks. April sees the release of some ridiculously anticipated titles as well as some budget releases of fantastic older games.

In this edition, we’ve got something for everyone, and we mean everyone. Whether you’re into cars, castles, robot, sexy ladies or grown men in black leather and spandex, this edition of Top 5 Games of Right Now has you covered. Hit the jump as we take a look at a collection of five games, some of which are available now, and some of which are right around the corner.

The Sims Medieval
Developer:
Sims Studio
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Available: Right now!
Kalahari.net price: from R304.16 (delivered in 24 hours)

Face it, The Sims is a big deal. Us here at Lazygamer would even go so far to say that it’s the most successful PC series to capture mainstream attention. Admit it, in between online matches of Black Ops you love nothing more than tending to a virtual dollhouse and ensuring your nuclear Sim family reaches as many lifetime aspirations as possible. Go on, it’s alright to admit it; this is a safe place.

Now the virtual people have been drop-kicked back to the Medieval age in a standalone release imaginiatively entitled The Sims Medieval. Think of it as The Sims with a healthy dose of light RPG elements and mini quests. That and, you know, castles and princesses and stuff. Yay verily!

Need For Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed
Developer:
Slightly Mad Studios
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Available: 01 April 2011
Kalahari.net price: from R304.16

We know that a huge amount of our Lazygamer readers are petrol heads, so this one is especially for you lot. The Shift series is Need For Speed’s answer to Gran Turismo and Forza. Expect hyper realism and stacks of detail.

In the build up to this game’s release there was a decent amount of smack-talk thrown around by the developers about their competition. Expect the rivalry between Gran Turismo, Forza and Shift to escalate as the years roll on. So sit back and enjoy the flame debates that erupt between the series’ fans, or if you have pledged allegiance to a particular brand, don that fire suit and get in there!

Don’t forget we’re running a Shift 2 competition; you can win yourself a copy of the game by heading on over here.
