10 hidden gems for PC and Xbox from June’s games showcases

E3 may be a thing of the past, but the summer explosion of gaming trailers and announcements seems to be here to stay. Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest attempted to step in and fill the void, and a myriad of other gaming shows like Wholesome Direct and Future Game Show did their best to give us a taste of what gaming is going to be like in the not-so- distant future.

During the Xbox and Bethesda showcase there were 35 games shown in a 95-minute window, all of which are expected to be on your hard drive within the next 12 months. With so many games, it’s inevitable that some announcements will fall through the cracks. There’s been no shortage of thought pieces over the absence of a trailer for Avowed or detailed analysis on the potential procedural generation of Starfield’s 1,000 planets. These massive projects are exciting and generate a lot of interest, but smaller games do get lost in all the chatter that surrounds the big AAA trailers.
