Happy August fellow gamers! It might be the last month of
Summer, meaning that school, university
and college will start soon, but big titles are coming in August, which should
help you drift off for a while.
Starting with today, is a beautiful Xbox Live Arcade
. The game
is what the Tequila Works call, a "cinematic puzzle platformer”; presented
this way, that reminds me of the excellent Chair Entertainment title, Shadow
Later on next week is Atlus’ newest title
Persona 4 Arena
. Known for their witty
creativity, dark humor and mind-blowing RPG, Persona 4 Arena has nothing to do
with the series: it’s a fighting game. Nevertheless, from what I got to see at
E3 this year, this fighting game brings back all of what is great about 2D
brawl: fast action, simple combos, and crazy visual effects.
On august 14th, you got yourself two massive titles coming:
. The sequel of the Zelda-like adventure game,
Darksiders II will feature the leader of the four horsemen, Death, in a bigger,
stronger and expanded game.
Sleeping Dogs on the other hand is a reboot of the True
Crime franchise. Grabbed by Square Enix earlier this year, Sleeping Dogs puts
you in the shoes of a undercover Honk Kong cop, Wei Shen, as he infiltrate the
Triads. This open-world adventure game will be your perfect fix as we are all
waiting for GTA V.
August 21st is a good day for shooters, as
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
on consoles and Steam, bringing back the memorable first person shooter.
There’s not much to explain here, I’m sure everyone knows about it.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will be joined by another
type of game, one that was redefined by High Moon Studios in the past two
Transformers: Fall of
. More Autobots than you can count, and an upgraded multiplayer action
mode should keep the Transformer fans for a long time.
Finally, in the last week of August, PC players will get
much needed appreciation with the long awaited PC port of
on August 24th and sequel to ArenaNet’s monster MMO,
Guild Wars 2
on August 28th.
