Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit 

This is the first game in the Dragon Ball franchise to come to the current generation of game consoles, and as fitting this bold assertion, it promises a slew of improvements and even to finally recapture the look and feel of the animated series to pixel perfection. It’s also aiming for an online emphasis, with plenty of game modes for multiplayer and heaps of action.

nascar

NASCAR 09

NASCAR’s back, the best stock racing car league in the world. Summer is also a heyday for burning rubber and revving engines, in case you didn’t know, so suit up, don those gloves and take a seat. It’ll be a scorcher: accurate tracks and cars, several deep play modes to keep you racing for weeks and weeks, and personal guidance by non other than champion speedmister Jeff Gordon.

Top Spin 3

2K’s venerable tennis series makes another showing, perfect for that Wimbledon mood and beefed up with better controls and an action-leaning design. It’s out on all three major platforms, but the Wiimote makes it doubly appealing, as you tackle the might of the world’s best racket wielders across over 40 different locations and play varieties. If you have any interest in tennis, earmark the rest of summer for this one.

Purr Pals

Purr pals? Now that sounds a bit too sweet even for an issue dedicated to being hopeful, but we’re actually really looking forward to this one. There have been similar concept titles released in the past, especially on Nintendo’s own handheld, the DS, but this one is bigger and more ambitious, taking kids through the paces of choosing a feline companion, caring for them, seeing them grow and prosper. The bottom line here is a sense of responsibility: animals are not playthings, they’re living beings that deserve to be happy.
