August Releases

August is a slower month than normal for releases but here is what I am looking forward to this month.

Video Games
Coming out of beta on the 8th of the month is LawBreakers releasing on PC and Playstation 4. From the few matches I have played during the beta, it brings an interesting take on first person shooter games, in a genre currently being dominated by Overwatch.
Later on in the month on the 15th, releases Sonic Mania. Sonic Mania will be a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. A week later, released Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The Uncharted series, is one of the first games I purchased when I started gaming on the Playstation consoles, so I will be continuing the story line with this game.
Normally, I don’t get excited about the new Madden NFL football games but with the introduction of a story mode, I will definitely be taking a spin at that mode to test it out.
At the end of the month on the 29th, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle comes out. Having never played a game in the Rabbids franchise, when I first saw this game at E3 I was definitely intrigued by its concept.

Take a look back at what released in July.

July Releases

Here are my thoughts for July regarding games and movies.

Video Games
After E3 taking place last month and hyping up the rest of the year for gaming, July brings 3 games I am looking forward to. Releasing on the Nintendo Switch on the 21st, is Splatoon 2. Splatoon was a great game so I am looking forward to the sequel. Releasing on the 28th, for the Nintendo 3Ds, are Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. While I most likely won’t be picking up those games on release day, I will be purchasing them later on.

Movies
Starting off the month with a Marvel movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming releasing on the 7th. A few weeks later on the 21st, comes Dunkirk. Being directed by Christopher Nolan and being from the World War II era is very intriguing to me. Looking forward to this followup movie releasing on the 28th, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, to see the progress of what has happened as the result of the first film. Being released over 10 years later, it will be interesting to see a new take on what is being discussed.

June Releases

Video Games
Currently with this month, not a lot of releases that I am looking forward to. But with E3 coming up later this month, I am eagerly awaiting what will be announced during that for the year to come. One game I am looking forward to is being released on June 30th, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This game features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. While I didn’t play Crash Bandicoot as a kid, I am looking forward to this release so I can experience those games now.

Movies
Two movies releasing on June 2nd, Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Looking forward to the next installment in the DC Universe, when Wonder Woman comes out. Having ran the Captain Underpants books as a kid, I am curious on how the movie will turn out. Later in the month on the 21st comes the release of Transformers: The Last Knight. Having seen the rest of the movies, I am looking forward to watching this one. At the end of the month, brings the release of Despicable Me 3. Being a fan of the minions, I can’t wait for this release.

Music
Three releases I am looking forward to this month. The first release coming from All Time Low on June 2nd, entitled Last Young Renegade. One week later, comes the release of Wolves by Rise Against. Near the end of the month on the 23rd comes the release of Evolve by Imagine Dragons.

Check out my thoughts on last month.

May Releases

May is shaping up to be a slower month than the previous months.

Video Games
This month doesn’t have any appealing releases for me in regards to video games. Just more hype building for E3 in June.

Movies
After seeing the first movie, I am looking forward to watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which released on May 5th.
Later in the month on May 26th, releases 2 movies which I am intrigued by, they are Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch.

Music
4 years after their last album, I am looking forward to Paramore’s next album entitled After Laughter, releasing on the 2nd of May.

April Releases

March was a great month in terms of releases. April isn’t looking to bad either.

Video Games
After a strong release in March of the Nintendo Switch, the Switch has 2 games I am looking forward to in April.
Releasing on the 25th and 28th are Puyo Puyo Tetris and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Mario Kart 8 is one of the main reasons I had originally bought my WiiU, the fact that it is getting updated is going to be great. Puyo Puyo Tetris seems like a great party game and brings back memories of playing Tetris with friends.

On April 18, The Disney Afternoon Collection is being released. This will bring back memories of gaming from my youth.

Movies
April brings the release of 3 movies I am looking forward to see.
7 – Gifted
14 – The Fate of the Furious
28 – The Circle

Music
On April 21st, 2 albums are being released that I am excited to listen to. 21 8 by Incubus and Love and War by Brad Paisley.
