The List - June 2011

PC games worthy of mention for this month, ordered by interest.
(Monthly US releases are only estimated, game may end up all hype and really suck)

 This month, your old games return from the dead.

Dungeon Siege III - ARPG
Gas Powered Games nods out of the 3rd release (that's okay, DS2 not very good), to make room for Obsidian Entertainment stab their first aRPG.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River - Shooter
Continues the coop tactical shooter genera.  Dragon Rising was pretty good, as long as you bought it on sale.  We don't get many good tactical shooters, so best giv 'em some love.

Duke Nukem Forever - Shooter
The White whale is found: the return of Duke Nukem.  For real.  Granted, always thought Serious Sam was Duke reincarnated. 

Alice: Madness Returns - Platformer
Loved the original Alice.  Unfortunately, it turned into American McGee's one hit wonder as all his other stuff bombed.  Bombed so bad, Alice 2 no longer has his name on it, though he is involved.  Low on my list, as its looking like too much of a stupid jumping puzzle game.

F.E.A.R. 3 - Shooter
Never played the second FEAR, due to the dismal reviews.  Probably also marked the end of developer Monolith, as FEAR 3 is from a different dev team.
