In a vintage that offers a period E3 is equally particular, the month of July continues to be a very hot month at the level of the ads between the event on Ubisoft’s and the promise of an appointment made in Microsoft dedicated to Xbox Series X. so much for the future but also the present of the universe of videogames is not to be certainly underestimated.
In this sense, July is a month full of outputs potentially very important from the exclusive that they definitely made the fortune and they are making the fortune of both the PS4 that Switch. On one hand we have a title that could prove to be the wonderful singing of the swan, the first-party Sony of this generation, a Ghost of Tsushima that since the first trailer had much to offer but they now have to prove their value on the controller. It will be the definitive consecration of Sucker Punch?
The large N, on the other hand, responds with two different productions but both the cult. Paper Mario: The Origami King marks the comeback of one of the series most popular mustachioed plumber while Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise transports us once again in the crazy universe that has for protagonist Francis York Morgan with a prequel/sequel to discover.
But the next 31 days, however, are very rich in goodies and projects to keep an eye on as the Grounded, the first effort from first-party Microsoft of Obsidian Entertainment, or Röki, a modern fairy tale created by the new team of two ex-Guerrilla Games, or even that Marvel’s Iron Man VR that for anyone who owns the PlayStation VR could prove to be an absolute must have.

The first Deadly Premonition was not of course a masterpiece and, above all, the side gameplay showed the side of not a few criticisms but you know, when a title becomes a cult you also pass over some defects more or less obvious. It is precisely for this cult status that Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise , became a reality and is coming exclusively on the Switch. A sort of prequel/sequel, which in this case takes us back to Boston today to follow a new investigation that involves the past and the present. An opportunity to discover the inquiries of the agents, Davis and Jones, but above all to find the iconic Special Agent York, that Francis York Morgan, who has been able to involve and fascinate many players.

With the debut of the first creator of levels in the series, Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break allows players to create and share their dreams and experiences, while addressing challenges created by other players of the community.

- Bounty Battle (PC, PS4, Switches, Xbox One)
- Dying Light and Hellraid (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
- Rogue Legacy 2 (PC)
- Röki (PC)
Imagine a Super Smash Bros. but chock-full exclusively of characters from the universe of indie. Bounty Battle is, in short, exactly this, a clear homage to the series Nintendo very enjoyable especially in the company and in the multiplayer game that combines the characters from the universe of Guacamelee!, Darkest Dungeon, Dead Cells, Owlboy, Storm’s Gambit, Jotun, and many others. 30 characters, 16 arenas, and several modes and a graphic style that’s colorful and good quality outline what maybe could be only labelled as a clone, but that still seems to show the potential pretty good.
Those of you who remember Hellraid? A first-person action quite interesting that in some ways seemed to be a Dead Island sauce fantasy/medieval that it disappeared in the nothing for years? Well, in the day today that Hellraid is back under a guise rather unexpected. Dying Light, Hellraid is the new DLC for the popular Dying Light, an interesting variation on the theme that put us in front of a cab arcade, which is actually a protale to another world. A narrative tactic which is the perfect excuse to see up close what we could expect from Hellraid full.
If the genre roguelike/roguelite has become one of the most popular and played of the panorama indie much credit goes to a name that is now extremely well known among enthusiasts: Rogue Legacy. In some ways a sequel was practically inevitable, and in fact the Early Access of Steam is ready to welcome Rogue Legacy 2! We will be once again the brave adventurers in a world that is procedurally generated in which each death will make the knowledge of an heir of our hero’s previous that has skills and traits that are unique and unique in both in a positive and in a negative way. The sequel promises a graphic style that heavily revised, many more unique weapons, a soul metroidvania, most pronounced, and many more traits and perks unique and a lot of improvements, starting from the presence of biomes much more varied and complex. A more of the same mammoth.
When two ex-Guerrilla Games decided to give life to a study of the indies to draw projects to the most intimate and characteristic that we can not be intrigued, especially if the result seems promising as this Röki.

- Destroy All Humans! (PC, PS4, Stadia, Xbox One)
- Grounded (PC, Xbox One)
- Othercide (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
- Skater XL (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Direct from 2005, the diabolical alien Cryptosporidium is quite ready for a return in full regalia to allow once again the race Were to conquer and govern the Earth by completing various missions, one wilder than the other. Destroy All Humans! back in a remake that could do the gorge to old and new fans looking for a strange game, and that doesn’t take itself absolutely seriously, but is able to give so much carefree fun and unpretentious.
By the new acquisitions of Microsoft is expected to inevitably much, but the feeling that the first projects born from the new entry of the Xbox Game Studios are the titles “minor” is pretty obvious. Grounded able to shake off this feeling? Obsidian Entertainment abandons the comfort zone of RPG, pure, an adventure to live, either solo or with friends that comes with the decision to the universe’s survival. The debut in Early Access, we ask you to explore and survive in a world much more dangerous now that we’ve been shrunken to the size of an ant. The first tests with the hand will surely tell us more about the first effort from first-party developers of The Outer Worlds.
“XCOM meets Dark Souls” is certainly a definition intriguing but that could prove to be a double-edged sword for the promising (especially artistically) Othercide. Inside of a dark and gloomy world of monochrome we are in for what is in effect a strategic shift that meets the horror and that will require us to transform us into the last bulwark against the real and true creatures of nightmare. The promise of a narrative, curated and lore to be discovered they add an interesting twist on the paper very interesting.
It seems like a period, absolutely unmissable for all the lovers of the skate with a lot of the announced projects all-in-all a very short distance. Beyond the famous names and iconic, there are also projects that are more contained, but certainly not to be underestimated. Among them, one Skater XL , which in its time in Early Access has got a lot of acclaim and that is preparing for the launch of the full version with the expectations to the stars.

- Fairy Tail (PC, PS4, Switch)
- Fight Crab (PC)
- Nioh 2: The Tengu’s Disciple (PS4)
In Fairy Tail, players can manage a dream team of five characters from a list of over 15 playable characters as you venture in the Kingdom of Fiore, in the course of their quest to become the guild number 1. As the characters fight together, their bonds are strengthened gradually and to increase their level of friendship, it will unlock conversations special, including the original dialogues written specially for the game, and the stronger bonds will also have an impact on the gameplay with, for example, attacks enhanced.
In the universe of videogames, we were often faced with a lot of books bizarre, but probably almost anyone could be said to be ready to such a project. Fight Crab is a fighting game to say the least, bizarre that sees as protagonists lobsters and crabs that if you give it a thrashing. Perhaps the strangest thing are not even their gigantic dimensions, as if we were catapulted into a film of the kaiju, but the fact that they use weapons that attack with their massive claws between katanas, chainsaws and not only. In short, that type of trash is absurd that it could become a cult classic.
The information is for the moment a rather narrow but fans of Nioh cannot but rejoice in view of the launch of a DLC that surely will introduce new deadly boss, new guardian Spirits, new weapons and armor, but also new skills. A complete package this Nioh 2: The Tengu”s Disciple that will take us to Yashima in the footsteps of a famous and gigantic battle.
- The Maid of Sker (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
While the exact date still remains a mystery after a few delays, fortunately the nature of the project has taken features much more clear after the gameplay trailer will be shown on the occasion of the Future Games Show. Maid of Sker is a survival horror game that is inspired by the folklore welsh and proposes a number of mechanical related purely to the sound from the instrument of defence the prince of the work, a kind of emitter that can stun enemies, blind but hearing the finest that try to get us to the skin, the Quiet Man. A mechanical with a sub-fund of vision in a quite location wants to dive into a horror atmosphere that is inspired by, among others, to the good of the SOMA Frictional Games (Amnesia).
