July 2012 Video Game Release Dates
We thought last month was bad… This summer must be one of the worst for gaming (and weather) on record. MMO fans should be happy though with both FunComs The Secret World and Frogsters Tera. Console gamers… our advise is stock up those games you’ve missed this year and browse the indie sections of PSN and XBLA or just go back and revisit some old favourites.
