OK, now we're talking. We're barrelling towards AAA season in earnest this month. Madden is always our gaming Groundhog, signaling a bloodbath of huge releases between now and Christmas.
Huge games are beginning to drip out over the next four months, kicking off with Madden NFL 20 before diving headfirst into Remedy's Control, a nostalgia trip with World of Warcraft: Classic and Nintendo will look to continue its fine run of form with exclusives when Astral Chain lands.
There's something for just about everyone here, from the just-one-more-turn 4X greatness of Age of Wonders: Planetfall to the spacefaring antics of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, and the growing tension of Life is Strange 2. Heck, even The Church in the Darkness is coming out. That game's been kicking around for years and years. Let's hope the wait has been worth it.
