Every game out this August – Hellblades, lawbreakers and F1

4 min read

T’was the months after E3 and all through the house, not a console was stirring not even a PC mouse. Lo and behold, I forgot how the rest of this rhyme was supposed to be told! So grab a controller and hold onto your butts, because August is the month where gaming pulls out of its rut! There are games most mainstream, with indies born of passions and dreams! Betas of which I can count on one hand, and much like the numbers of games available for PS Vita players who should form a band!

So enough of my ranting and on with the show, because I’ve been called into the office to be told that rhymes do indeed blow:

Fantastic month, right? If I was stuck on a desert island and could only choose a handful of games to play after I’d consumed my fellow captives (LORD OF THE FLIES YO!), Telltale’s new Batman adventure, Agents of Mayhem and Hellblade would most likely be at the top of my personal list. What are you looking forward to playing next month? Would you also care for some seconds of my scrumptious leg of Larry?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
