The Gaming Month Ahead – July 2016


Hopefully everyone has enough to do over this July, or enough of a backlog of games to keep them satiated. There isn’t a heck of a lot out this month. There is however the first Gundam game to make it out west in ages – and thankfully it doesn’t seem to be the kind of awful slop that came out at the launch of the PS3. The wonderfully named Mobile Suit Gunda: Extreme Vs. Force follows a series of high-octane arcade games focused on 2v2 battles. 

Other games of interest include Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII – which is also coming to Steam, much like Nobunaga’s Ambition. Think Total War, but more character driven.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is out on PS4. It may have a dodgy script, scary anime-girl faces and a fairly silly name, but it’s another JPRG, of which there aren’t many anymore.

Monster Hunter Generations comes out on 3DS and lets you play as the feline Feylne race for a slightly less demanding and even more silly take on the usual Monster Hunteryness.
