The Gaming Month Ahead – August



The gaming drought continues into August as hardly anything is coming out. Don’t be fooled by the fairly extensive list at the bottom of this post (If you’ve seen it that it) I had to pad it out with the Wii and DS shovelware that I normally leave off the list entirely. So Blonde: Back to the Island…really? Fireman Sam? Seriously? The only games worthy of note this month are Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days and Mafia II.

You’d think game publishers would learn to space things out a bit better, but we’re sure to see great games left battered by the wayside as everyone rushes in for Winter in the coming months. Ahh well, more time to appreciate what we already have I suppose.

    Fire sam depends really if its old school sam then hell yeahs I remember the good times watching that! but it most likely be the new ruined version ;[

    Demon’s souls out again? strange but might get Kane and Lynch.

    But it does seem silly that publishers have all this open time to release a decent game but they don’t they rather wait for winter holidays and most of them won’t do that well as some thing even bigger and better is released the same time.

    Lower price will do wonders for Demons souls, I still get people after it. I’m quite keen on getting kane and lynch 2 and mafia 2. I enjoyed the original versions of both titles very much. The demo for K&L2 was really strong, and I believe mafia has a demo coming early august.

    If anyone is gonna get Kane and Lynch get it for ps3. There was some heavy slow down during an explosion on the 360 demo that was totally absent on ps3.
