E3, the annual video game show, is a tidal wave of news and trailers for upcoming games. It may still be virtual this year due to the pandemic, but we’re seeing more game sales than ever as a result of these announcements. Microsoft has its Unlocked Offers sale, Sony is offering discounts on popular titles, and later this month we’ll likely see the Steam Summer Sale. Now is a great time to fill your game library and spend some time indoors as the temperatures rise this summer.
