“Summer is officially here, and the month of June brings with it some seriously hot downloadable games to match rising temperatures and sunny weather. If you need a break from the bright sun, there are plenty of cool new gaming downloads to check out for every system. Get ready for action this month, as we blast colorful gems, pull off daredevil bike stunts, incinerate space garbage, and dogfight with classic cartoon characters.”
After evil subterranean excursions in Badman, I was anxious to dig into What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! 2. It’s a rad sequel with some solid improvements. My full-page review is in the June issue on pg. 78. It was also a good issue for downloadable games. This month’s PSN Games review column covers the retro-tastic Mega Man 10, Greed Corp, Echoshift, and Super Pocket Tennis. You can find those write-ups on pg 90 and 91. The next issue should be out soon, and there’s more downloadable goodness to come.
The June issue of Nintendo Power has been out for a while now, though I’ve been slacking on getting the cover scanned and posted up here. In this issue I have a community piece on the tiniest LEGO NES ever on pg. 93. It’s a cute little thing, and it even has controllers and a working cartridge hinge. It was made by Micah Berkoff, who has a ton of awesome LEGO creations posted online here. I also have a review of Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space for Wii in the reviews section on pg. 87. I should have quite a few more community pieces in the next few issues, and some great stuff in the works for down the road.
