Hold onto your wallets because we've got a big few months coming up in the gaming world. Dragon Quest XI is nipping in there early to try and steal your money and your free time, but we've also got Lara Craft lurking just behind it. That's not to mention Spider-Man slinging his way onto PS4, while Life is Strange 2 is going to have its work cut out living up to the original.

 

Sports and motor racing faces in particular are in for a bit of a treat this month. The trio of NBA 2K19, NHL 19 and FIFA 19 covers the 46th, 44th, and 1st best sports in the world, respectively. Racing fans coming off the back of F1 2018's arrival can also look forward to a few potential gems in the form of V-Rally 4, Assetto Corsa Competizione and Dakar 18. Or, you know, you could pocket that cash and wait until October 2nd for Forza Horizon 4.

Best month of game releases it what seems an eternity. Will nab Spiderman when the price reduces a little, Tomb Raider and LIS2 will likely be day 1 buys though. DQ and Xenoblade Torna will be scooped up down the line also.

I want to get Shadow of the Tomb Raider but i am going to have to wait instead since the only spending money i have at the moment is still going for PC components cause i need new fans since i am using the one's in my old system and a new PSU and a better CPU cooler cause while the one that came with my 2400G is nice and i find better than the stock Intel one's i still like it to be more cooler on idle temps.

Well this is a gaming forum site and yes while there is a lot of people on here that is usually PC gamers we still like the hype on certain console games.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Life is Strange 2 are on the list. My only concern is this... My apartment building is being sold out from under me and we're all being told you have an unknown amount of time left to GTFO. So, I'm saving for a move right now. I also want to buy a PS4 for RDR 2. So, I don't know what to do.

Take care of your move first, housing is more important than games. You can maybe even get it cheaper or second hand if you buy it later.

For sure. After I've saved enough for the big move I should have enough to buy a couple games, at least, but the choices are super hard choices.

I have plans for Spidey and DQ IX if the are good. Never pre-order people.


Remind me if I just completely forgot but wasn't the last Tomb Raider just like the remake but with forgivable story? What make the new one so popular?

So is it just wanting the same thing with a different story then? I get that but I guess it's not for me then. (I was having hard time having fun with Uncharted collection just few weeks ago.)
