Microsoft Flight Simulator: The next generation in one of the most beloved simulation franchises. Fly highly detailed and stunning aircraft in an incredibly realistic world.


Welp, July 2021 is a bit of a stinker isn't it? I mean there's plenty of titles coming out, just not the big hitters you'd like to see. Summer release date schedules have always been notoriously meh but combined with Covid July seems to be particularly underwhelming. The only things I've got my eye on are Death's Door and Orcs Must Die 3! (which is finally released from Stadia prison this month. Congrats OMD3!). Tribes of Midgard looks good but I'll have to see more impressions from that before I jump on board. Same goes for Ender Lillies. And considering I've already bought more games than I'll be able to finish within the next 3 months during the Steam Summer Sale I should maybe hit the brakes on the spending spree and focus on my backlog a bit. So what are you buying GAF?

Oh and I would like to nominate the BlasterMaster Zero 3 trailer for best trailer of the month. Best VO in the bizz.

As always, let me know if any dates are incorrect or if there are titles missing from the list.

I’ll give Flight Sim a whirl on Game Pass, have it queued for pre-install.

Week month though, wouldn’t touch Zelda SS with a barge pole. Can’t wait to see reviews for Monster Hunter though.

I guess rona is the reason a new F1 game is releasing in the middle of the summer?

Orcs Must Die 3 and Neo TWEWY are the only definites for me.

Flight Simulator is a must, something very different for a console and the graphical bar being raised so I've got to experience that.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Been looking forward to CrisTales, and it's coming to Game Pass day one.

Where's the Samurai Warriors 5 hype? Surely you jabronis didn't get enough with the four previous Samurai Warrior games?

So it is not shit! :messenger_winking:
Well i have no idea if ender lilies and death door are good, i just like the trailers.

And tbh, we don't know shit about the ascent's quality level either...


So yeah, until proven wrong, i remain with my pessimism.

Phenomenal month for Xbox gamers. Flight Sim, Ascent and Death's Door all look amazing.

As I only have PS5, I'll likely just pick up Ender Lilies and maybe Eldest Souls.

Interested in The Ascent and Chernobylite, but I've heard iffy things on Chernobylite so I'll wait and see with that one.

Basically another whole month of nothing as those both come out at the very end of July.

The only thing I'm getting is Dai Gyakuten Saiban. I already played the first one a couple of years ago, and I need to know how the duology ends! Apparently DGS2 is the better one out of the two of em, so I think I'm in for a treat.

Chernobylite is actually pretty good, or it was last time i played it months ago. It kind of plays like a single player version of Escape From Tarkov, but with monsters and stuff.
I'm sure the finished game will be good.

Oh yeah, Ys IX also arrives on Switch this month. I'll probably get that one too, but not at launch.
