The Gaming Month Ahead – October


First up, the good news is that I enjoyed Dead or Alive 5, so I don’t regret dressing the site up with Kasumi. It may not have the most inventive game modes or deep choice of hats available – but it offers a very strong fighting experience that’s accessible, challenging and can’t be undone by simply mashing the hold button anymore.

But we’re here to talk about October! Christmas if fast approaching (at least according to every retail outlet) and the number of big titles each month is rapidly increasing again. This month Resident Evil 6 and Assassin’s Creed 3 bookend either side of the month will triple-A goodness – whether either of them can live up to past-glories remains to be seen. Resident Evil 6’s demo failed to impress and with the influence of so many other shooters pressing in on it,it’s hard to see the Biohazard under it all.
Assassin’s Creed trades the lavish locations and charismatic hero for the rural woodlands of revolutionary America and a half native-american hero just appears filled with the usual amounts of anger and indignity as most media representations of his people. It should be noted that with both of these titles, the PC counterparts are delayed releases, due out in the following weeks.
For me the main star of the month is Dishonoured. Offering a unique art style and hitman-like diversity for achieving your goals, it’s a new IP that has lots of people interested to see if it’ll succeed or not.X360 gets the Kinect controlled Fable the Journey, 3DS gets the truly originally titled Pokemon Black and White V2.
Coming somewhere from left field is also Of Orcs and Men. I’ll confess I hadn’t heard of it until I started compiling this list for October, but it looks promising and it’s worth at least keeping an eye out for reviews to see if it turn out to be good.
