Three Video Games You Can't Miss This Summer (and Two for Right Now)

Summer is a slow time for gamers. Publishers put the kibosh on triple-a titles until the holidays rear their three-pronged check, credit card or money order. After prestiging in CoD, becoming a master spartan, and even whipping out the SNES for an hour or so gamers come to the same conclusion: I'll die if I go outside, but the hole in my heart for entertainment must be filled.

So here they are, three games coming out this summer all available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Oh yeah, and a couple of budget games to plug the hole temporarily.

3. Dragon's Dogma

Release Date: May 22

Taking its cue from the success of the recently released title Dark Souls, legendary developer Capcom seeks to reclaim the action-horror throne. Players will enjoy the cinematic combat they've come to expect from Capcom, as well as an all new RPG-styled system of advancement. A Shadow of the Colossus

grappling ability creates a sense of scale, as the player will be tasked with climbing on multi-story abominations seeking just the right vital organ.
