Once a month, we’ll be looking at the available (or imminently available) games we think should be jostling for your cash. Here are the games you want for August. August is not exactly the best time for video game releases – most of the big ones are coming from September onwards, but we’ve got two games coming next month that are worth your time and money. What? Just 2? Unfortunately, yeah.

Remember, you can get these games from exclus1ves.co.za by clicking the links for each game. Exclus1ves is still currently offering free shipping anywhere within SA, making them one of the most affordable ways to get your game on.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Published By: Square Enix
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC

DXHR

Prequel to 2000’s game of the year, Deus Ex: Human Revolution explores the political and moral aspects of the augmentation of human beings to make them better. In my preview of the game earlier this year, I called it it a Game of the Year contender, and it looks like I was right. PC Gamer’s released the first review of the title, giving it 94% and calling it “Smart, substantial, funny, creative and endlessly entertaining.” If that, and the recent live action purity-first teaser don’t grab your attention, you probably should be playing video games at all.

Why do you want this game?

It seems to have captured the very spirit of the original Deus Ex, something many people consider the best game ever made.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
