August Releases

August is usually a Sports Gamer National Holiday, as the Sports Gamer’s Christmas comes with the release of Madden. That usually means most companies don’t drop titles to compete with Madden. But this August is more than just Madden, which is a welcome change for the rest of us (my sports gaming days died with NCAA Football [RIP, brutha]). On to this month’s releases:

Microsoft Xbox One

F1 2016

Madden NFL 17 – I first played “John Madden Football” on the PC. That was TWENTY EIGHT YEARS AGO. A new world of video games opened up for me when I designed my first running play and I wore that game out playing it so much.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided


Nintendo Wii-U

Metroid Prime: Federation Force – This is how far removed I have been from the world of Nintendo: I had no idea a new Metroid Prime game was being released. I have a bad taste in my mouth from Metroid Prime: Hunters, but I’ll always give a Metroid Prime game a fair shake.
