THE DROUGHT IS OVER. That's right people: Lots of games worth playing this month. HOORAH. You can read the Wii version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Duke Nukem Forever was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Pokemon Black and White Developed by: Game Freak Published by: Nitnendo Release date: September 18th (Japan) Genre: RPG My Hype Level: Do want, but not until it's translated (whether it be through fans or localization) GBAtemp Hype Level: FLOOD GBATEMP! OUR COMPLAINTS WILL BLOT OUT THE SUN! IGN are lazy shits and don't update their images, deal with it. Now now now, Pokemon is Pokemon. Despite being the same thing over and over again, I still find myself playing it and enjoying it over and over again. Something about that monster collecting and turn based battling gets me hooked. This is the newest in the main series and looks to change things up. Well, not really. Just maybe make it look a little fancier and add some new mechanics (like they always do) but it's still Pokemon at its heart. Prepare for the flood of anti-piracy and translation request threads. Promote me to moderator and I'll deal with it. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future Developed by: Level-5 Published by: Nintendo Release date: September 12th (America) Genre: Puzzle My Hype Level: Not my genre, but I appreciate the effort GBAtemp Hype Level: It's Layton, they always want. Again, IGN, lazy shits, deal with it. Layton games just aren't really my type. I've tried 'em, got bored of 'em in an hour, and deleted them off my cart. Still, they're not bad games, just not my type of thing. And it's nice to see such quality work come for the DS that I can't blame 'em. It's a game I'll agree to disagree with. It's not bad, just not my type of thing. Okamiden Developed by: Capcom Published by: Capcom Release date: September 30th (Japan) Genre: Action Adventure My Hype Level: I'd like to try it, but in English GBAtemp Hype Level: DO WANT I feel like I'm one of the only people who didn't like Okami. Maybe I have a bad impression from playing the Wii version (NTSC version) and not the PS2 version. But I just found the game boring and the controls very fidgitty. Still, this game looks to be better in terms of controls with a stylus controlled paint brush and hopefully button-based combat. Unfortunately, unless it has enough English for me to understand the game, I want bother with it until it comes out overseas. Etrian Odyssey III Developed by: Atlus Published by: Atlus Release date: September 21st (America) Genre: RPG My Hype Level: Haven't tried the first or second, they seem too old for me GBAtemp Hype Level: WE LOVE ETRIAN ODYSSEY I haven't really bothered playing Etrian Odyssey I or II, they just seem to old for my tastes in terms of mechanics. But they have gotten a popular following and I guess I should try them once I run out of stuff to do. Still, this seems eager to please fans of the first two, so gobble it up! Batman: The Brave and the Bold Developed by: WayForward Technologies Published by: Warner Bros. Interactive Release date: September 7th (America), September 24th (Europe) Genre: Action Platformer My Hype Level: Classic 2-D sidescroller looking, do want GBAtemp Hype Level: Probably not as interested unless you're Hadrian I was never into comics or even superhero cartoons as a kid, but nowadays I've been more interested in superheroes in general. And Batman: The Brave and the Bold (based off the recent cartoon) looks to be just that: a classic superhero video game, retro in all its glory. Being only a Wii/DS game means it should have plenty of effort into it (I hope), and I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions Developed by: Griptonite Games Published by: Activision Release date: September 7th (America), September 10th (Europe), September 29th (Australia) Genre: Action Platformer My Hype Level: Web of Shadows reskin, meh GBAtemp Hype Level: DS version, meh Expect this to be like a Web of Shadows spiritual sequel. Same dev, same superhero, obvious choice. But I'm getting sick of Griptonite's DS games. Some of them were fun like Assassin's Creed II, Web of Shadows, hell even Iron Man 2, but using the same gameplay formula with a slight difference for every game is getting really old. Probably won't be the worst game you've played but it definitely won't be anything new. Last Window: The Secret of Cape West Developed by: Cing Published by: Nintendo Release date: September 17th (Europe) Genre: Adventure/Mystery My Hype Level: I'll probably piss myself with excitement. Yeah, I'm fucking hyped. GBAtemp Hype Level: Probably like a sexually satisfied woman. They will shout "yes," in a pure orgasmic tone when its dumped. Written by emigre, thank you Hotel Dusk was a film noir, mystery game released three years ago. And it proved to to a critical success as, we played as ex-cop Kyle Hyde on the search to discover his former partner. Last Window is set a year after HOtel Dusk and this time, Kyle really is in the shit. He's lost his job and and possibly his apartment, so as you can imagine he's feeling like shit. However his fight against impending homelessness take him to Cape West. An apartment block which may hold some answers about his father's death. Other titles - Tetris Party Deluxe: 9/3 (Europe) - Dawn of Heroes: 9/7 (North America) (but this game is ALWAYS delayed) - One Piece: Gigant Battle: 9/9 (Japan) - Rune Factory 2: 9/9 (Australia) - Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest: 9/14 (America), 9/15 (Australia) - My World, My Way: 9/16 (Australia), 9/17 (Europe) - Need for Speed: Nitro-X: 9/20 (North America) Overall Summary We've needed this. A DS month full of not maybe one or two worthwhile titles, but a whole shit load of them. We haven't had this good a month since March. It feels good, man. Next month ain't too bad either. Final Fantasy: Four Warriors of Light gets English-ized, a new Pokemon Ranger is out (no thanks), we have, of course, Super Scribblenauts, not to mention The Sims 3, Rock Band 3, and The Force Unleashed II. Have a nice September!
