The Monthly Game Guide: October 2012 Edition

By | 4 years ago 

Monthly Game Guide October

Following all of the Wii U news in September, it’d be expected that gamers across the world have started saving their pennies. But until the console’s November 18th release date, October comes packed with a myriad of high profile titles, aiming to drain out Wii U funds.

October starts off strong with Resident Evil 6, which is followed closely by XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored – both of which drop on the 9th. Meanwhile, both the Vita and Xbox 360 are looking to have strong months, with Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation and Zero Escape Virtue’s Last Reward releasing on the former, and Forza Horizon and Fable: The Journey for the latter. Of course, we can’t forget about Assassin’s Creed 3, which drops just before Halloween.
