Summer’s almost over, school is around the corner, and game season is upon us. For those going to college who are looking for some games to play with room/hall mates, look no further than the incredible variety these eight contain. From fun little platformers, to gritty crime dramas, September has it all.
Diablo 3 (PS3, Xbox 360): This was already a smash hit on the PC. It had a few complaints from the community, namely saying it feels like a console game, but in this context, that’s a good thing. Hopefully it transfers over to consoles well.
Rayman Legends (PS3, PSVita, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC): Rayman Origins was a surprise hit for this reboot of the series. It’s definitely a title worth getting since it's more innovative then let say some plumbers out there. If its anything like Origins, Legends will be fun either alone, or with some friends.
Killzone Mercenary (PSVita): A Killzone game for the Vita?! Wait, a Vita game is coming out? Jokes aside, this series is one of the best recognized on the PlayStation consoles so hopefully this game will freshen up the Vita’s life.
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix (PS3): This collection contains KH1 and Chain of Memories upgraded to sweet HD visuals. Also included are movies from 358/2 Days. This is a must buy for those who missed it the first time and for KH fans waiting for KH3.
DuckTales Remastered (Xbox 360): The reviews have been all over the place for this one. As for this version, it’s the Xbox 360’s turn to get a dose of retro magic. Will it be just as good/bad as reviews said? Time will tell.
The Wonderful 101 (Wii U): This is perhaps the most exciting and enticing game coming out for the Wii U. This game looks like it’s part Power Rangers, part spiritual sequel to Viewtiful Joe, and part Pikmin. It looks fun, colorful, and intense!
Grand Theft Auto V (PS3, Xbox 360): GTA4 came out in 2008. Now finally, five years later, this much-anticipated sequel is coming out. It’s GTA. What else is there to say?
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure (PC, Wii U, 3DS): The Scribblenauts games are always a blast. This game features DC heroes for more puzzles, giggles, and oddities. It’ll be fun for all ages.
