New Releases – September 2017

Update: Something for the man with many cheeses; Divinity Original Sin 2 is coming out of Early Access mid-september. The first game was pretty damn good anyway, the sequel adds four player co-op, lots of races, a better combat system and a plethora of other zany Larian things.

Koei’s output seems to be in overdrive lately. Not a month seems to go by without a Warriors or anime-inspired game from them. This month we have Warriors All-Stars. This a cross-over title featuring lots of Koei-Tecmo’s properties. The only thing that seems to really set this apart from Warriors Orochi, which was also a Koei Crossover title, is that this one isn’t afraid to vary up the graphics. While Orochi did characters from non-Warriors titles like Z’ill Oll and the Atelier Series, it stuck to a Warriors aesthetic. This time, while again mashing up Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, they’re also adding in titles like Opoona and Samurai Cats.

Destiny 2 is out this month…on consoles. It comes out on PC next month so I’ll maybe write something more about it then. For now, here’s a video without a wizard from the moon.

Dishonored seems to be going the way of Baldur’s Gate, using what is basically an expansion to round off its story with Death of the Outsider. Although Corvo and Emily’s stories are done, Arkane are determined to also end the Outsider’s tale. It’ll be interesting to see how the game plays without any Outsider gifted abilities (though you could play Dishonored 2 that way by turning down his gifts). Hopefully this be as epic an ending as Throne of Bhaal.

The long running Gundam Versus series comes west and reaches the UK this time. The Vs series has long provided great arcade mech action. It’s definitely more of an arena game than a shooter/action game. The focus of the game seems to be solely on multiplayer though, with single player offering little more than a way to hone your skills.Those hoping for the long campaign of games like Alliance Vs ZAFT 2 (like me!) are going to be sorely disappointed I think.

There’s also Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite this month (also known as – quick tie it into the MCU as much as possible!) and Total War: Warhammer 2, and Forza Motorsport 7. There’s basically a lot of stuff. And for all the people who loved the first game, Knack 2 is out too! See below for how many people that was…
