Our Favourite Games From July

July was a whirlwind for new games. From a mobile phenomenon to indie releases, here are our favourite games from July.


Pokemon GO

Our Favourite Games From July

The world lost its collective cool over Pokemon GO this month. Our first moments with the game taught us new things about the world around us, when we found pocket monsters in new and unexpected places.

It helped us get out more (even when we couldn't hatch eggs), as well as think about the game's implications for people who move through the world differently. Players waged war over the White House, found dead bodies, trolled each other and institutions and even sent nudes. We loved its team leaders, too. Check out our tips if you're still looking to be the very best, like no one ever was.

You can get the game for iOS and Android phones.

Comments

    I'm rather addicted to Rimworld at the moment, despite being incredibly terrible at it.

    Monster hunter generations is pretty rad, too.

    My favourites are Odin Sphere: Lefthraisir and Furi. I am Setsuna came close but while I enjoyed it overall, the moment to moment enjoyment was lacking. If that even makes sense.

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions! Most awesome embarrassing fun i have had in a long time!

      I've never played a persona or shin megami tensei game, but i really want to give mirage sessions a go. The premise is nuts like the best "out there" anime.

      I'm currently watching food wars. I don't know why, but i can't help myself.

        I was the same. Never played either but thought it would be something i liked. Tokyo Mirage Sessions is definitely worth it for me!

    Any news on I Am Setsuna physical copy? I can't find anything on it.

    The game I started playing this July was... Pokemon Soul Silver :P
