    Mostly PS3/360 releases with some 3DS. There are some Wii and Vita but the Vita is pretty much getting one sport game and another PSN game unless you count the JPN stuff which I do time to time but not the ones that have little to no chance of being released overseas. The 3DS XL is also coming to AUS and NA in august. If you want to add better comments just put them down or PM. I really don't buy many games near release to care to know much about them unless certain situations apply.

    New Super Mario Bros. 2

    Platform: 3DS
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Nintendo
    Release date: 8/17 EUR, 8/18 AUS, 8/19 NA
    Genre: 2D Platformer

    This game will be more about gathering coins but it is Mario and besides the virtual boy game being strange and hated by some Mario rarely fails to please.



    Darksiders II

    Platform: PS3/360/PC
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: THQ & Vigil Games
    Release date: 8/14 NA AUS, 8/21 EUR
    Genre: Action/Adventure

    A game with a combo system and exploring. It should be fairly long and may be a great game.




    Deadlight

    Platform: 360
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Tequila Works
    Release date: 8/1 NA
    Genre: 2D Action Game

    A 2D game that has some fighting elements and some puzzles. It has a limbo feel but you cannot just fight all the zombies you want since you will get slaughtered that way just keep moving and try not to die to much.



    Persona 4 Arena

    Platform: PS3/360
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Atlus & ARC System Works
    Release date: 8/7 NA, 8/31 EUR
    Genre: 2D Fighter

    A 2D fighter starring various characters from Persona. Each one has a unique story and fighting style.




    Sleeping Dogs

    Platform: 360/PS3/PC
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Square Enix & United Front Games
    Release date: 8/14 NA, 8/16 EUR, 8/17 AUS
    Genre: Action/Adventure

    Was hoping it be like Yakuza but is more like GTA in a way.




    The Ratchet & Clank Collection

    Platform: PS3
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: SCEA
    Release date: 8/28 NA
    Genre: Action Adventure Compilation

    Three Ratchet games in one package was hoping deadlock would be included but what can you do. Already out in other areas.



    RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D

    Platform: 3DS
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Atari
    Release date: 8/28 NA
    Genre: Simuatlion

    A RollerCoaster Tycoon game on the 3ds. It is basically a game where you make attractions and other things to get money.




    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Platform: 360/PS3/PC
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Valve
    Release date: 8/21
    Genre: FPS

    This game will probably sell better on PC but it is a good shooter back in the days.




    Risen 2 Dark Waters

    Platform: 360/PC/PS3
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Deep Silver & Piranha Bytes
    Release date: 8/3 EUR, 8/9 AUS
    Genre: RPG

    A RPG if you played Risen 1 you know it is a fairly open world game with Pirates.



    Dust: An Elysian Tail

    Platform: 360
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Humble Hearts and MS
    Release date: 8/15 EUR/AUS/NA
    Genre: Action RPG

    The 360 sure is getting a lot of arcade games this one I don't know much about but considering how many I enjoyed I expect great things.



    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD

    Platform: 360
    [​IMG]
    Developed and Published by: Capcom
    Release date: 8/22 NA
    Genre: 2D Fighter

    It isn't the best graphically but it is a pretty good fighter.



    Legasista

    Platform: PS3
    [​IMG]
    Developed & Published by: NIS America
    Release date: 8/21 NA EUR
    Genre: Action RPG

    Was hoping it be like 3D Dot Heroes but the graphics don't look to great but the gameplay might be. It has character creation and other things and for some reason is not having a physical release in NA why does Europe get them time to time....



    The Last Story

    Platform: Wii
    [​IMG]
    Developed by: Mistwalker
    Published by: Xseedgames
    Release date: 8/18 NA

    NA release of the game already out in other areas, This release was delayed several times.



    Mentions

    DS The Lost Town The Jungle 8/2 NA A decent Action RPG try The Dust as well.
    Wii Dragon Quest X 8/2 Japan Yet another hopefully great game in the game series. This one is going to be a MMO though....
    3DS Devil Summoner Soul Hackers 8/30 Japan A SMT game which is a great turn based RPG.
    PC Guild Wars 2 8/28 All but Japan A MMORPG which will probably be out shined by the other ones not to mention WoW
    PC Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition 8/23 AUS, 8/24 EUR NA An action RPG which is fairly difficult but has new content for PC which will hopefully be offered to the console players via patch or DLC
    PS3 Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 8/7 EUR, 8/8 NA An RPG which is fairly rare now. It isn't the best but is another in the series already released in Japan.
    PS3 Retro/Grade 8/21 NA http://www.retrogradegame.com/ Hoping this thing will do well as a side scrolling shooter or w/e it is
    360 Hybrid 8/8 NA/EUR/AUS A shooter which should of been more like tribes you can try to get into the beta but I don't think this game will get much MP support
    360/PS3 Quantum Conundrum Desmond Debacle 8/15 NA DLC for the puzzle game Quantum Conundrum. It will hopefully answer the cliffhanger in the story and more puzzles.

    Hardly any Vita releases?There are none here.
    Only thing I see I'll play here is Soul Hackers but even then that doesn't have a US release date. Maybe Persona 4 Arena.
    Edit: Looked it up, only thing the Vita is getting is Sound Shapes and a Madden game -_-

    Sleeping Dogs and Dark Souls for me. I might try Darksiders II(All of these on PC btw), maybe the controls will be much better than DS1. I absolutely hated the controls on DS1, can't remember why.

    He skipped a few months so I figured he might skip another so I did one again. Plus I was first but his does have more information but less games somewhat. Is it really that big of a deal they are both different in someways.
    Edit: He doesn't count that many JPN releases and other areas getting the game if already released in English in other areas. Also he pretty much has no PC games on his list ever unless added by others and other things.
    Mine doesn't have very good writing, does not have much info on releases listed, has JPN releases, more PC games and other things.
