The thing about games is they're a seasonal beast. Sure, games come out all year round, but they tend to either come out before the end of the financial year, or just before the end of the actual year. September is when the floodgates are supposed to be cracked open for the chrimbo games -- so where are they?
Well there's some! But just some! A couple of good ones though. Quality over quantity, yada yada yada.
Diablo III (360/PS3)
What is it? Hahaha! You know what it is. Should you care? I skipped the PC version, so this is essentially for chumps like me. I feel as though I missed the train a bit though. Finding it hard to be motivated and treat this as a new game I 'must' play. You may feel a little different.
What is it? A first person survival horror game that looks like a genuine pant filler. You have to explore an asylum for some reason. Should you care? I like proper horror games. This looks promising.
Total War: ROME II (PC)
What is it? Arguably the biggest release this week. In all senses of the word. Should you care? Fans of this series have been salivating after this one. Massive scale battles and whatnot.
