Normally the week of E3 is pretty slow for new game releases. For some reason that's not the case this year as there are a few major games showing up on store shelves in the next week. While we normally talk about games coming to the US in this round up, we also wanted to point out that the long awaited Duke Nukem Forever is being released in Europe and other parts of the world on June 10. It won't be released in the US until June 14.
