Amidst E3 shenanigans
Out This Week is pretty self explanatory; it's our weekly look back at all of the new games that were released on Xbox One and Xbox 360. We've tinkered with the format a bit and streamlined it so it's easy to be informed of all the latest games. You'll find information on the pricing for different regions, the publisher/developer's description of the game, and a conveniently placed trailer for your viewing pleasure.
This edition covers all games released on Xbox platforms between June 11th and June 17th. You're most certainly welcome!

Recover the sacred scrolls and bring peace to the kingdom in this action-packed, innovative, 'twist' on the classic tower-defense game! Now you have complete control of god-like heroes that are free moving within the environments, and bring new strategies and awesome powers to the action."

Trials of the Blood Dragon

Beyond driving, the level of action is cranked up with the addition of weapons and a grappling hook, bringing a whole new level of gameplay to the world of Trials. If you don't succeed at first, try shooting it."
It makes sense that game releases are on the small side due to the focus on E3 this week. Nonetheless, do any of the above games interest you at all?
