October Releases

Fall is my favorite time of the year for oh-so-many reasons. Weather, foliage, FOOTBALL and the holidays. While the real TRIPLE-A titles are still waiting in the wings of November, October 2012 is no slouch of a month for releases. If you can pull yourself away from Borderlands 2 or Torchlight 2, there’s quite a few games coming out this month worth your time.

Week of October 2nd
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013
Dead or Alive 5 – Looks like she still “kicks high“.
FIFA Soccer 13
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes – Interested to know why this is budget priced at $40.
Angry Birds Trilogy – Speaking of forty dollars, it seems insane that anyone would spend that on basically a collection of 99 cent games. But hey, achievements, guys!
NBA 2K13
Resident Evil 6 – I’m torn about this version of Resident Evil. I enjoyed RE5 enough and of course RE4 is one of the best games of all time, but I just don’t know how much love I have left. Seriously considering passing on this one. (If this is your first foray into the RE world, though, the Resident Evil 6 Archives is a great starting place.)
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission

    I love that Wheel of Fortune is in this list… Is Vanna still ugly.

  2. I’ve got Dishonoured and X-Com: Enemy Unknown preordered on Steam. I’ll likely get AC3: Liberation either when it comes out or early November. I also need to get a new PS3, so I’m waiting for that AC3/PS3 Super-Slim bundle.

    And let’s not forget New Little King’s Story on the Vita, which launched on PSN today. I adored it on the Wii.

    I’m going to try the Silent Hill: Book of Memories demo and see how it is.

    I think that’s it for me for the month. I’m buying a new house soon so I have to be careful. That’s why I preordered as much as possible right now 🙂

  3. Ah crap. A new Layton game is out this month too? And the sequel to 999 (Zero Escape) too? Maaaaan…
