5 games to help you get through the summer video game drought

Looking back on the last few months though, the industry saw a number of releases that quite possibly could have flown under people’s radars. Here are 5 of the best ones. (Culture, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, RetroN 5, Shovel Knight, Valiant Hearts, Wolfenstein: The New Order)

I really need to start playing Shovel Knight... is it only on the Wii U right now?
BrianSharon  +   457d ago

Things that will help me survive summer drought - beach, ice-cream, ice-cool drinks, more beach.

The Retron 5 is stupid and illegal. You shouldn't be promoting this author.
KeeseToast  +   456d ago
The Retron 5 isn't illegal, if it would be they couldn't sell it.

i hate summer drought i don't want to go outside need more games!
Grave  +   456d ago
But Outside is the best MMO on the market. And it's free-to-play so it's worth checking out:

You just put me on a 2 hour long info hunt about simulated reality and supercomputers and hypercomputation. Lol

OT: TLOU: R and Tomb Raider are probably the only games I'll be getting to hold me through the summer drought.

Pay2win man. Was trying to change my class to successful business man but they wanted me to pay!
Artista  +   456d ago
What drought? 99.9% gamers have a plethora of backlogs.

Yep got more than enough going on, only just finished bayonetta 1! ;( haha, and doom 3 this week, now just finishing off the orange box, then got arkham city and red dead left to go, save the best til last, but yeah get through this little lot and that'll be my 360 retired at least, just the ps3/4 vita, 3ds and wii u to get through, (not even started skyward sword yet ;( haha)
MikeLowrey  +   456d ago
Yep... Finally getting around to playing Kingdom Hearts HD I've had it for ages but have been on ps4 so it was neglected :(
Psychotica  +   456d ago
I got many games in my Steam library from this past sale and the sale before that, that I haven't even started yet.
iDadio  +   456d ago
Recently built a new PC so currently experiencing games at a much grander level than I had done, take Skyrim for example running on ultra with the high res textures and installed on an SSD over my previous experience of it which was on the PS3 xD
RosweeSon  +   456d ago
And they wonder why I won't buy an xbox one too many great games on the go and too many consoles also, retire my 360 at least first then might consider an xbox one but the games need to step it up a bit in my personal opinion, each to their own tho.

I bought Wolfenstein for half price in the Steam sale, still can't play it.. my current HD 5870 only meets minimum requirements, wish new gfx cards would come out sooner.. agh
Artista  +   456d ago
That suck :( What's the new GPU you got?
Master-H  +   456d ago
Not me, i have a huuuge backlog of ps3 games, also i started Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs not too long ago and stopped playing them (ps4), currently playing Demon's Souls , and probably gon start Assassin's Creed Black Flag.
RosweeSon  +   456d ago

What about the last of us remastered and diablo 3 ultimate edition. Both excellent games to keep you busy.
RosweeSon  +   456d ago
Last of us remake isn't out In uk for another 4 weeks, good job really might give me time to finally finish off my xbox 360 ;)
poor_cus_of_games  +   456d ago
And then it all starts again in october and November. That's when I live up to my n4g name lol.
Brazz  +   456d ago
I'm still playing Dark souls II happily!
CorndogBurglar  +   456d ago
Wolfenstein really is great. I love it.
e3kehoe  +   456d ago
Me to. It's so much more fun than I was expecting.
shmeedy24685  +   456d ago
I got a lot of games from the Steam sale that I need to play and I'm getting The Last of Us for PS4 when it comes out, had it on PS3 as well, brilliant game!

FFXIV is basically my gaming life atm. Sprinkle in Dragon's dogma Dark Arisen, some free2plays and BF4+VITA and that's my summer.
