The Gaming Month – October

Wow – how did I miss the start of October? I blame the Eurogamer Expo! Well better late than never (hopefully) October’s already kicked off with some decent titles like Dark Souls taking up everyone’s time. But there’s still three fridays left in this month and a shed load of awesome gaming. Taking the spotlight this month is undoubtedly Batman: Arkham City. I don’t think anything need be said about it. Arkham Asylum was a fantastic game and City adds tons of new content and features – including a playable catwoman!

Also this month Battlefield 3 – nipping in before its rival comes out in early November. Battlefield has certianly whipped up a media frenzy – some good press, some bad press – but all of it making sure it remains firmly in everyone’s thoughts in the coming weeks. It certainly looked the more popular at Eurogamer and while I somehow doubt it will outsell its rival – I’m sure it will make a sizable dent in their profits. Read on to see the full list of games for the remainder of this month.


  • Forza 4 (X360)
  • PES 2012 (PS3/X360/PC/PSP/DS/Wii)
  • Dead Rising 2: Off the Record (PS3/X360/PC)
