With Summer upon us the game and mod market seems to dry up so this month's Spotlight is a little on the thin side, no matter these releases are some of the best all year! With Neotokyo finally making its debut and Research and Development being so well received both in the Modding community and the enthusiast press you should have no excuses to not try these mods out!

Next time you shoot around the corner in NT: LEAN. You pose much less of a target then.

I saw it like this, lean around a corner made of glass or just stand out there... Either way it was a machine gun sandwich for me!

Your opponent seemed stupid enough not to shoot through glass. :D

However I had a sad instance where i shot through train door window and the bullets didnt pass through it.

If they know you are there. you're probably better off doing a running bunny hop around the corner :P ...

ive noticed playing peek-a-boo with the enemy will get you shot in the face :P

I think the lack of releases is because of lots of productivity, Lots of people are probably just starting a mod or having time to finally work on one. It would be interesting to see data on how many mods are started each month.

Nice to be part of that line-up, too bad it didn't really show how cool the mod is and why it stood out.

Nice review. Good releases.

(but what does TOPF stand for in the Slipstream title? I guess it must be "The Of Price Freedom")

Nice line up of games, but we need some more indies in it, because I know for sure that I love indies and most likely everyone else.
