I hate to sound like a broken record, but the video game industry is pretty dead right now. After the dust of E3 had settled, the excitement had died down, we are just patiently waiting for those games that were announced to release, which isn’t anytime soon.

video gamesA DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey called Judgment of Atlantis was released on July 16 for PC, Xbox, and PS4. This DLC is a continuation of the first two episodes of the Atlantis story and is the final episode in the story. Popular review sites like Kotaku call the episode “jawdropping” and praise the gorgeous environments in the game.

video gameAn island living expansion for The Sims 4 was released on July 16 for PS4 and Xbox. The expansion is the seventh in The Sims 4 series. Fans and critics alike say that the expansion is different than any of the others because players can swim in the ocean, catch fish, and other activities unique to the island environment. The expansion has been said to be a bit pricey but worth it if you are a Sims fan.

marvelMarvel Alliance 3: The Black Order was released on July 19 for Nintendo Switch. In the game the player can control such famous characters as Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and more! While the game is visually stunning, the fighting tends to drag on for too long.

video gameWolfenstein: Youngblood was released on July 26 for the PC, PS4, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. The game takes place in the 1980s and follows the next generation in the Blazkowicz family as they fight the nazis. Co-op mode is a unique feature in this new game in the series. This will be the first game in the Wolfenstein series to be released uncensored in Germany. The change from single player to co-op has been exciting for players, and they are thoroughly enjoying the new take on the series.

The Blackout Club will be released on July 30. The game has been played by many already through early access demos.

I cannot wait for the holiday season when the game releases really start to ramp up!
