Top games of September 2012

September is finally here – as the weather heats up so do the game releases, with some long-awaited sequels and follow-ups finally arriving on store shelves.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2                    

14 September 2012

Even though it’s been out in Japanese arcades for nearly a year now, the highly-anticipated sequel to Tekken Tag Tournament is finally hitting consoles this month. Tekken Tag Tournament will feature the classic arcade gameplay, with unique content and features for the first time.

It delivers new and returning characters in the largest roster ever, the most advanced attack mechanics, ultimate combo move sets and new battle modes. Tekken is back, and definitely not pulling any punches.

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition

18 September 2012

While Bioware have been too busy crafting the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, Overhaul Games and Beamdog took it upon themselves to re-make and re-release Bioware’s classic with Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition. The new version will also have new story content, improved visuals, DLCs and mod support.

Torchlight 2

20 September 2012

Runic Games’ Torchlight was always destined to be compared to Diablo, and was often seen as a rip-off; but when Torchlight released in 2010, it became an instant cult-classic and even preferable to the Diablo series in some cases.

Torchlight II is set to bring a satisfying dungeon crawling experience with more monsters to kill, more sweet loot to collect, larger maps to explore, and a revamped skill system.

Borderlands 2

21 September 2012

Often dubbed “Diablo with guns”, the highly-anticipated Borderlands 2 is set for release this month. The four-player loot-fest sequel features all-new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.


28 September 2012

EA is keeping this critically acclaimed series going in FIFA 13. The game features a new attacking intelligence, making the game experience a little harder. It also includes new skill games and an improved player impact engine. The player impact engine will allow you to have more realistic one-on-one battles with players on the field, rather than just a simple collision.

Other big releases: World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria (PC), I Am Alive (PC), Kirby’s Dream Collection (Wii)
