Let's be honest: The sun is trying to kill you. Me too! It's coming for all of us, really.

Super Mario Bros. 3

But there's good news too! One simple trick for avoiding the sun's murderous rays is to stay inside and play all the great video games coming out this summer. To that end, we've gathered a dozen of what look to be the best games arriving in this year's hottest months right here. We've ordered them by their respective release dates.

"Mirror's Edge Catalyst"

There are hundreds of first-person games. 99% of those games are shooters, where your first-person view is that of a gun, maybe a hand, and a wide array of enemies with which to employ said gun on. It's a formula that's been done to death, but "Mirror's Edge" pushes back on it in the best way possible.

Rather than a gun, you're a human being employing fancy acrobatics to escape (and occasionally disarm/stun) enemies, many of which are wielding guns. If you stop to fight, their guns will win. So, instead? RUN! FASTER!

"Edge of Nowhere"

In this virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift, you play as Victor Howard: a man on an expedition in Antarctica to find his missing wife Ava Thorne.

What starts as a straightforward action-adventure game soon turns towards the supernatural. The twist begins as the game's main character "ventures deeper into a dark monstrous world where reality warps and twists around him. Desperate to find the one he loves, Victor must encounter disturbing creatures and climb sheer cliff walls as he descends further into madness." Sounds like a blast!

"Trials of the Blood Dragon"

Ubisoft, publisher of the "Assassin's Creed" series (among many others), has a penchant for the very weird every now and again. "Trials of the Blood Dragon" is a great example of this sporadic bizarreness. It combines the "Trials" franchise — known for 2D motorcross trial racing — and the "Blood Dragon" sub-series (from the bigger "Far Cry" franchise) into a mélange of neon pink and motorbike racing. If the image above doesn't say it all, we're not sure what else could.
