How naive I was, thinking September was a huge month for games. It's positively ant-like next October, a month which features comfortably the most impressive line-up of the year so far, as well as quite possibly the single finest day of games releases we've yet know. To top it all off, Destiny 2 will finally be blasting its way to PC. The hype's settled a little on that one, so we can hopefully approach it with a more rational looking at its offerings.

As for that huge day, it's October 27th - Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Super Mario Odyssey arrive on the same day. That weekend's sure to be an anxiety-inducing mess as I rotate through this trio of games every half hour.
