Final week of June is upon us and the month that leads into summer started with a bang and followed through with a few noteworthy entries. For instance, there is a new IP coming out from Gearbox called Modern War Hero, as you may have read earlier in the week ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda Software, bought out legendary development studio id Software, the makers of Doom and Quake.
