June looks like a month of darkness with Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, 7 Days to Die, The Technomancer etc. compared to the brightness of Overwatch which has recently become my addiction. I might need a game break (where I swap to another game for a bit to reduce my dependency level). Also an update on the delay of No Man’s Sky, unfortunately, we won’t be getting to explore space as was intended this month but for such a beautiful game we’re happy to wait. You all remember how Uncharted 4 paid out.
