The official TVGB guide to avoiding sunlight

Barbecues. Pool parties. Beach volleyball. These are the things gamers hate. But the recent trend of publishers saving their best games for fall/winter release means that we may have no choice but to fill the occasional summer afternoon by going to a ball game or (shudder) taking a bike ride. Fret not. ┬áListed here is a release schedule for some of the games that will surely keep you busy during the dog days of these coming months. Just remember to keep the blinds closed tight wherever you game this summer – that sun can cause some deadly TV glare.
