Isn’t Mario Golf out in July? That should be your number 1.

Edit: comes out in June. My mistake.

Nothing since I'm still holding off on a Switch. I will get Ace Attorney eventually hopefully.

What is chernobylite,is it a multiplayer game or singleplayer?
Taken from Steam page:

Chernobylite is an RPG survival horror mixing free exploration of disturbing locations with challenging combat, unique crafting, and non-linear science-fiction story. Build your team, survive and reveal the twisted secrets of Chernobyl in the 3D-scanned recreation of the Exclusion Zone.

Yikes, what a terrible month. Thankfully, I have a few thousand hours of backlog on PS4/5 & Switch, plus Gamepass that I can play through to get me through these dark times...

Definitely playing Steel Reign and grinding all the new shit. I'll buy Skyward Sword since I've never played it.

And I'll download MSFS to compare the XSX version to the PC version. If you haven't tried it, give it a shot. Flying a couple hundred feet above your house and being able to see the streets, trees, farms in the right area. It's not a perfect representation but it's pretty fucking amazing what they've accomplished. And check out the world map in game and look at all the fucking airports. Got a small one really close by in real life and It's in the game,so I take off from there and check out places nearby.

Very excited for The Ascent. Curious about Flight Simulator, can’t wait to see that with my own eyes on Series X. Gonna be a busy month on Gamepass.

Chernobylite and flight simulator for me.

Stay away from Chernobylite. Its so fucking bad iam glad that i got it refunded.

They promise open woröd but its just some small areas that you need to pass through without aby sense of discovery.

They enemies looked like glitches in the early access and its short

Haha, I knew from that crappy boomerang game making the list that it would be a slow month.

The Ascent might be my most anticipated game this summer. Taking the weekend off for that one

Another game I'm super happy is finally releasing on 29th July is Eldest Souls.

A 2D "boss-rush soulslike experience" but this thing is no joke - a demo was available on Steam last summer and left a great impression on me.

I’ve been looking forward to trying flight simulator and since I have game pass and a series x it’s a no brainer. I’m on the fence about Zelda. I’m a pretty big fan of the series and it’s the only one I never tried. I loved BoTW, oot, and wind waker. The waggle control idea always turned me off. Was that changed to include regular controls for this new version?

I played the early access and I liked. It's not s.t.a.l.k.e.r. but I like the atmosphere

Maybe, Monster Hunter Stories 2 for me. Other than that, nothing for me personally.

Happy July everyone! The weather is getting hot so if you’d rather stay inside playing games, check out this list of what’s releasing on all of your favorite platforms this month.

Seems like July doesn’t have a ton of upcoming games so pick your favorite from this list and dive in. Coming to Switch this month we have Skyward Sword HD, Curved Space, The Silver Case, and The 25th Ward. If you have a Playstation 4 or Playstation 5 you can catch Ender Lilies Quietus of the Knights, Where the Heart Leads, and the F1 2021 game. Out on Gamepass this month is Deaths Door, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and The Ascent. If you have an Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Xbox Series S you can also play Last Stop, or The Forgotten City. PSVR and PC VR both get Sniper Elite this month. Other new games this month include The Procession to Calvary, Warhammer Battlesector, Observer System Redux, and Cris Tales. Gameplay for Monster Hunter Stories 2 looks fun. Don’t forget to check out Akibas Trip, Orcs Must Die 3, Neo the World Ends With You, The Great Ace Attorney, and Master Blaster Zero all available in July 2021.
