October is another big month for games!

This month we see a lot of new entries in existing franchises and re-releases of great games for the latest generation of consoles! Let’s take a closer look!

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance


Release Date: October 6th
Platforms: PlayStation 4
Pre-Order Now

The Disgaea series is a little weird so bear with me.  Disgaea 5 is the 6th game in the series and this time the evil demon emperor Void Dark has taken over the Netherworlds and you have to stop him!  Heroes from each of the worlds join forces to fight back and unleash combo attacks unique to each character pairing!  This game was an immediate hit in Japan when it was released back in March and it looks to again be here!


Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Release Date: October 9th
Platform: PlayStation 4
Pre-Order Now

I don’t think Uncharted needs any introduction.  It’s one of the best selling and most popular titles for PlayStation 3.  The three games in the series, Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves, and Drake’s Deception, have all been remastered for PlayStation 4 in this new collection.  Only the single player story for each will be included however you will get an invitation to the multiplayer beta test of the upcoming new entry in the series, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

If you’ve played them before then you can play them again in full next generation glory. If you’ve never played them before, well, you’re in for a treat.  Either way this is a musthave for your PS4 game collection!

Hot New Games for September!

You thought we had a good summer for games? We did! But the fall is going to be even bigger! Let’s take a look at the new titles releasing in September.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain


Release Date: September 1st
Platforms: XBOX360, XBOX One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4

In the latest game in the long running series players will take on the role of Venom Snake (aka Big Boss) as he ventures into 1984 Afghanistan during the Soviet-Afghan war in order to find those who nearly killed him in the previous game Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

A number of new features are coming this time around but perhaps most exciting is the ability to approach missions in many different ways. Previous Metal Gear games would set you on a specific path for during missions while Phantom Pain will let you decide how you want to get them done. Add to that an even more massive open world, home base building, a pet dog, rock climbing, and a host of other new things to explore and you have the makings of a classic.


Mad Max


Release Date: September 1st
Platforms: XBOX One, PlayStation 4

Explore the world of Max Rockatansky! Your car, the iconic Interceptor, is stolen and you’re left for dead in the wasteland. You go on a quest to reclaim it and build the ultimate car, the Magnum Opus, and then go on to take revenge on those that left you to rot in the sun, all the while scrounging for scarce supplies..

This game is not a direct tie in the this summer’s amazing Mad Max film Fury Road but you will get to visit many places in from the films including Gas Town and Thunderdome and the big bad is the son of Fury Road’s Immortan Joe, Scaborous Scrotus.
