Hold onto your wallets, because September is going to be a hell of a month for new video games

3 min read

Listen, Green Day might have had it all wrong after all. Why sleep through September, when you can instead cuddle up with some of the finest video games to ever grace a console? If July and August were relatively low-key months for video games, then September feels like the first salvo of a war on balanced bank budgets.

Shots fired, EFTs are landing and somebody is waiting for a courier to knock on their door with a delivery of a promise of interactive entertainment. It’s a big month ahead for the industry then, filled with just about every game possible that wants to get in a release before Rockstar unleashes Red Dead Redemption.

From first-party titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man to Bungie aiming for redemption with Destiny 2: Forsaken, here’s a look at the month ahead. Hold onto your butts folks, this is one heck of a big month!
