Buy, Try, Die: June 2015 Release List

Ah, June. The month where gaming journalists all over the internet both anticipate the wonders of E3 and simultaneously bemoan all of the games that are curiously releasing right after E3. Not to say that I should complain. Things could be worse, of course.

But I mean, really, video game publishers? Batman: Arkham Knight, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition (and more) are all releasing on June 23, less than a week after E3 ends on June 18. 

Not to say that they're going to be terrible at all. Quite the contrary. Just, who exactly has the time to complete their preview assignments from E3 and play any of those games for the amount of time they deserve for a launch-day review? I'm sure there's an editorial on review ethics somewhere here. *thoughts rumbling*
