June 2013 Video Game Release Dates
Who said summer was dull for video games? Ok, well from looking outside lately, we can’t really class the weather as ‘summery’ yet, but you get the idea. The Last Of Us has been on everyone’s mind lately, and we don’t blame you – it looks great! Remember Me is just around the corner too, and with Android Kickstarter phenomenon OUYA launching towards the end of the month, June could be quite interesting.
We’re not holding our breath for July though… sorry…

I’m not sure if you can hear me over how awesome I am, so listen closely. There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into this insanely sweet game: I’m a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I’ve been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I hunger for two things, chimichangas and more chimichangas (mmm… chimichangas) I’m gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) So yeah, be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!)

The Ouya is a video game console running its own version of the Android operating system. Julie Uhrman, a game industry veteran, founded the project in 2012. She brought in designer Yves Béhar to collaborate on the design of the project, and Muffi Ghadiali as product manager to put together the engineering team. Development was funded via Kickstarter, raising $8.5 million and becoming the website’s second-highest-earning project in its history.

It’s all about kicking ass in the name of revenge. Ride to Hell is a one-of-a-kind rock and roll brawler, set in the distinct 1960’s era of anarchy, with its mix of gritty, grounded reality and rebel sensibilities.

Players can utilize deadly intercept manoeuvres, brutal counter-attacks, and bloody combos grabbing anything they can get their hands on to destroy the Devil’s Hand. They will be riding for their life, bringing chaos to the streets and employing devastating, cinematic Rage Attacks on foot and on bike.
