EZA curates June games: What are you anticipating? What's worth checking out?

  • A thread for examining the new games of June! Share your personal picks, interesting curios, and not quite there possibles...


    Did you discover some small game that not everyone knows about?
    Share that and let us know what it is about!

    Already know a thing or two that interests you?
    Make a list (or a swanky desire index) of your interests and/or possibles!

    Don't know what's so great about an upcoming game you keep hearing about?
    Ask here!

    Don't follow gaming news that closely and just want to passively see what BigGames™ people care about?
    This is the place!


    Thread concept:

    The basic idea is to list new games that you are interested in, as well as games you are potentially curious about or want to give wider attention to. You can briefly describe them or ask other people to help fill you in. The hope is that regular threads like these can act as a collective filter/discovery mechanism to help people decide what is worth checking out.

    "New games" means any new title that is being released or ported this month in any capacity (not "backlogs/what you are playing this month"). The angle here is sharing your anticipation and promoting game discovery (as opposed to sharing comments about a first playthrough in progress - that belongs elsewhere).


    • If you want a handy list that covers most of the major upcoming games of the month, here's one text list. Feel free to post other lists or list videos that you find useful.
    • Final request: If you are the first person to mention a game please provide (at minimum) a short sentence description. (If it is a very big AAA release though, then don't worry about it.) This is a good convention that makes the thread more useful as a discovery mechanism, and especially helps out anyone who doesn't follow the news as closely as you.

  • I'm really excited for Samurai Shodown ...but then I probably won't buy it for at least a year. I'm probably even more excited for Super Mario Maker 2...but again will prob wait unless I see some insane things week 1. I really liked 1 but definitely didn't make as much use of it as I could have. Was good fun to try hard levels with friends over.

    Octopath Traveler out on June 7 for PC. I played through all this game last year on Switch. Octopath Traveler is a visual, musical and strategical treat.

    Crash Team Racing.

  • @lotias /thread.

  • This thread's a good place to mention a smaller scale game like 198X. Even made a thread for it. Could be cool, retro arcade games together with growing-up drama.

  • I won't be playing this until July but Judgment. Really hyped for it.

  • This is one to watch. Out June 27.

    The Sinking City
    Super Neptunia RPG
    Persona Q2

  • My irregular craving for fighting games has showed up, so I think I'm gonna get Samurai Shodown when it comes out. Never played any of em', so I'm excited to see how it works and controls.
