July 2nd: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition

If you haven't played Guacamelee! yet, now you have no excuse. Already out for PC and PS3, this pop-culture lovin' Mexican-fest is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the Wii U in all of it's macho goodness. With stereotyping, tons of references and a whole lotta' laughter, Guacamelee! is a game that will quite happily slam a sombrero on your head, wrap you up in a poncho and shoot at your feet as you dance La Cucharaca. Not only do you get the original Guacamelee! game in this spicy package, but you also get all of the DLC and new game areas, bosses, abilities and enemies to dropkick into oblivion. Muy bueno.

July 2nd: Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2

I, for one, am hugely surprised at how under-the-radar the release of Civ Rev 2 is. Sure, it's only on mobile devices and it's bigger brother Civilization: Beyond Earth is coming soon, but this "lite" twist on quite complex series of games still has a cult following, yet Firaxis really haven't seemed to blow their trumpet about this one. Still, as long as it doesn't contain microtransactions, this iteration of Civ Rev looks just as fun as the original, with easy pick-up-and-play gameplay and 16 leaders to choose from, including new some new additions like Gandhi and Winston Churchill (above). Now you can win the space race, build the UN or conquer the world on your way to work!

July 10th: Quest For Infamy

Just like most indie games, Quest For Infamy is a throwback to the games of old (In this case, Ye Olde RPGe). Unlike most indie games, Quest For Infamy is absolutely packed content-wise; 200 areas to explore, 50 NPCs to interact with and multiple endings to discover. You can choose between 3 different types of villain (Brigand, Rogue and Sorcerer), all with their own customizable spells, skills and adventures, and just let your dark side.... gloom? While it's not of Skyrim proportions, Quest For Infamy should be able to hold it's own and shine among other RPGs.

July 29th: The Last Of Us Remastered

I really don't need to say anything about how good Naughty Dog's take on the zombapocalypse is, but I should, otherwise it'll be a pretty boring article, and I won't be doing my "job".  This Remastered edition isn't just a HD Remake (Even though they're never in HD). While it does run at 1080p 60fps and has been completely rebuilt for the PS4, TLOU Remastered will also contain both the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories multiplayer map packs and the Left Behind story DLC, where a huge secret about Ellie is revealed. Also, it's The Last Of Us, so just go and pre-order it already.

Honorable Mentions:

Child Of Light (PS VITA) July 2nd

Ratchet and Clank Collection (PS VITA) July 2nd

Mousecraft (PS3, PS4, PS VITA) July 9th
