Tell GR: Buy, Try, or Die? [June 2013 Release List]
Posted on Friday, May 31 @ 18:34:37 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
The month of June is always tough for video games in North America given the news barrage from E3. Most publishers and developers know better than to release their games in this month; that is, unless they know that've got a solid gem that can withstand the pressure.
Cue Naughty Dog. I suppose if you want to send a message about the idea of not releasing games in June, don't just release it then, but release it the day immediately after E3. It's annoying for us journalists, as we experienced with BioShock Infinite being released during GDC this year. But if we must suffer this trend, it might as well be for games like The Last of Us, right?
Also don't forget Capcom's new IP, Remember Me, coming out next week as well their remake for D&D: Chronicles of Mystara later in the month. Then not soon after, a flurry of wonderful handheld titles, Project X Zone and Muramasa Rebirth, and the welcome return of Company of Heroes 2.
But you guys know it's all about Deadpool. Bang, bang! Bang, bang, bang, bang!
