August Releases

It snuck up on me once again! This is bad, over a week into the month. I’m going to blame it on being August — I sincerely thought this month was going to be pretty bereft of top-tier games, what with a new console generation almost upon us. Boy was I wrong!

Week of August 13th
Payday 2
DISNEY INFINITY Starter Pack
Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff

Week of August 20th
Saints Row IV
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist – Splinter Cell was the first one that caught me off guard. I knew that there was one more SC game coming before we moved on to the Xbox One, but I completely forgot about this one. I have loved Splinter Cell since the first one (I played it on the Gamecube!) so I’ll definitely be checking out Blacklist.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified – I still have XCOM sitting in my Steam library, patiently waiting for me to give it some attention.

Week of August 27th
Painkiller: Hell and Damnation
Madden NFL 25 – Usually August meant the newest Madden and not a whole lot more. I played the firt Madden on my PC (and it was a 486!)
Killer is Dead
Lost Planet 3 – After two previous games, it’s not really lost, is it?
ArcaniA: The Complete Collection

Week of August 6th

  1. I should point out that Ducktales is coming to 360, Wii U and PS3 the week of August 13th as well.

    Thanks for the heads up on SC. I totally overlooked it. With SR4 and XCOM Declassified coming out on the same day, I have no idea which I’m going to pick up.

    • Is Ducktales coming out as downloadable for the other systems? I have never really worked out a great way to include downloadable content in the posts. I really need to for the next generation, though.

      Thanks for the heads up.
