Available at: Switch
Survival horror game by John Carpenter The Thing. A helicopter crashes into a research center in the Arctic, where strange monsters attack the crew.

Terminal Velocity is the definitive version of Lost Orbit, which reaches some new platforms. But it's still the story of Harrison, a man stranded in space who just wants to get home. Without a ship that works, you will have to pull yourself by the planets, the stars and other celestial bodies while you make your way back.
Gloomhaven – July 17
Available in: PC
Gloomhaven is based on the popular board game of the same name, where a band of mercenaries moves through randomly generated dungeons.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order – July 19
Available at: Switch
The latest in the Ultimate Alliance line is set in a totally different universe, but still allows the bad guys like the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and more.

Lost Ember – July 19
Available at: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Lost Ember sees you in control of the wolf, and this wolf can actually take over the bodies of other animals.

A Nintendo Switch version is planned for later.
Julio still has some great video games on the horizon. Next week is the home of Switch Exclusive Fire Emblem: Three Houses, as well as another Nazi killing adventure, Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
