Games of August wrap-up and September Preview
The drought is over and the game releases are just about to pick up some speed. At the end of August we had one of the best releases all summer: Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
They don’t make many games like this anymore. Chances are this is the best Deux Ex game we’re going to get from this day and age based on how games are developed now. Play the originals and you’ll notice the differences. If you’ve played the other Deux games you’ll find a reason to enjoy Human Revolution. There are several different ways that you can go about playing levels: guns blazing and sneaking, for example. My first play-through I went non-lethal as best I could but now I’m playing through a second time going rambo and much as I can on top of being a ‘jerk’ at every opportunity. This shooter laced with RPG elements is one I highly recommend. -Graev
Coming up in September:
Our copies on steam are preloaded and ready to go. The reviews around the web have actually been pretty good with scores coming in from 8-8.5. It looks to be L4D meets Dead Rising with a little bit of GTA thrown in the mix. I’m hoping that the RPG elements with level-ups and skill trees make the play-through(s) something we haven’t experienced before. We’ll stream multiplayer live tonight when it unlocks!
- Resistance 3 – We’re not in any rush to play this quickly so we may wait on it and play it later in the year couch-coop.
- StarFox 3D – Likely to be one of the best 3Ds releases for a while.
- Gears of War 3 – Obviously going to be must-buy.
- X-Men Destiny – This one looks interesting. Sadly, it looks to be singleplayer.
