Highlights – September

So the summer lull is over! Hoooray! We have games again. And now to touch on what I can’t wait to get my hands on this month. To start off, this month seems to be flooded with our annual dose of sports games including NHL, Fifa, PES, and a few racing titles, so people who love those games can rejoice. But we also have some nice shooter action and even a few rpgs. In a pretty wide variety of consoles too! Let’s head right into it.

 

September 6:

Warhammer 40k Space Marine – looks to be a fun little TPS to pass the time with.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten – Some nice JRPG action to start the month off with. Looking forward to getting my hands on it!

Resistance 3 – although it’s first person and as such not to my tastes, it certainly deserves a mention that it is coming out and I hope to see good things from it.

September 13:

White Knight Chronicles 2 – Been waiting for the continuation of this story for a while now – so glad to see it – too bad it waited until after the lull though, would’ve been a perfect time waster! Hope they made some improvements to the combat system though.

September 19:

Kirby Mass Attack – Might pick this up and sweep the dust off my DS

September 20:

Gears of War 3 – Finally a game to make me power up that 360 – looking forward to getting a nice dose of Gears.

Sword of the Stars 2: The Lords of Winter – A fantasy RTS, but this is another that might just have to wait a bit.

September 27:

Atelier Totora: The Adventurer(or Alchemist) of Arland 2 – Another JRPG? Three in one month? Holy JRPG Batman! Where am I ever going to find the time for them all? But I’m glad to see it!

Child of Eden – Finally hitting the PS3 here, and I am interested in getting my hands on it when it does!

X-Men: Destiny – Finally! I’ve been looking forward to this title for quite a while, can’t wait to see how it plays out.

Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny – Interested in giving the Rune Factory series a try. Edited thanks to Tyler pointing out this one – I had forgotten it.

 

Finally we have a few compilations, remakes and throwbacks coming out that might be interesting:

Persona 2 finally hits US shores on the PSP this month. Resident Evil Code Veronica X is coming out for the PS3 this month, as well as a remake of Resident Evil 4 in HD for both ps3 and 360. And Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Compilation is hitting shelves as well for the PS3 containing Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow, and Chaos Theory all in one value priced bundle. Also coming is the first in the ‘PSP Remasters’ collection for the PS3: God of War Origins, containing the 2 PSP God of War titles remastered in HD with trophy support for the PS3.

Also worthy of mention is that the Diablo 3 beta starts this month.

 

Nice big month, hopefully I can find time for everything I want to play this month! Hope we all survived the summer lull, but now we have another 9-10 months of awesome to look forward to ;)

  • Might & Magic Heroes VI on September 6 and Rune Factory Tides of Destiny on September 27 are my choice picks of the month. Looking at all the other games, I don’t see anything that interests me.

  • While I acknowledge both of those are interesting – and admit I’d completely forgotten Rune Factory… Heroes 6 was actually Delayed to October 13th unfortunately due to bugs revealed during the beta – according to a few sources I’ve found.
