The month of July is the worst month for the gaming community. The biggest event of the year in E3 ended a few weeks ago and most gamers are thinking about games that they will be playing in the future. With August kicking off many AAA video game releases, July is usually a month where nothing major happens. However, there are still a few games that release next month to keep an eye on.

'Accel World VS. Sword Art Online'
