The Monthly Game Guide: September 2012 Edition

By | 4 years ago 

As we move into September, some gamers may be reluctant to acknowledge the upcoming Holiday gaming season. Sure, the next few months may be home to multiple high-profile releases, but by December our wallets will have cried more than during a Steam Summer Sale. However, thanks to a number of delays, there’s still some breathing room during the next few weeks.

One of the most notable releases this month is that of Borderlands 2, which looks to improve greatly on its predecessor, both in terms of narrative and gameplay. The long awaited Torchlight 2 makes its debut on PC, while Wii owners can look forward to Kirby’s Dream Collection in the middle of the month. A smattering of sports titles will also make their way to consoles, including NHL 13 and PES 2013.
