August Releases

August is a holiday for a certain group of sports gamers that await the yearly release of their Super Mario Brothers, Madden NFL Football. While I’m an NCAA kinda guy, Madden will always hold that special place in my heart as one of the first sports games I ever played on the PC. That was A LONG time ago.

There’s also Darksiders II, the sequel to the cult favorite (apparently) under appreciated adventure game. I may have to give that one a looksee one of these days.

  1. P4 Arena and The Last Story are the only two I’m getting this month. Budget for games is about to get very tight, so I’m going to only splurge on a couple of games at the moment. And my PS3 is still busted 🙁

    I will get Darksiders 2 at some point, but my save near the end of the game is on my busted PS3 and I just got the game for PC, so I’ll probably wait to play through it again first.
