What Should Be On Your Radar This Month

Every gamer knows it can be hard delegating your gaming dollar in the right direction, so I wanna help you out. I got these release dates from ign.com, so if they're off, don't blame me. Also, these games are in no particular order of personal preference.

Fable III- Xbox 360- Release Date: 10/26/2010: I dig Fable. The Second game in the series was utterly phenomenal, and based on what I've seen of it, the third might be even better.

Fallout New Vegas- Xbox 360, PC, PS3- Release Date: 10/19, 10/21: Fallout 3 was an epic resurrection of a great RPG franchise. Hopefully, New Vegas will continue that trend.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1-XBLA, PSN, WiiWare, iPhone- Release Date: 10/7-10/13: A return to form for the much maligned Sega mascot is long overdue.

Super Scribblenauts- DS- Release Date: 10/12/2010: The critically acclaimed DS adventure puzzle game has spawned a sequel with even more great gameplay.

Splatterhouse- Xbox 360, PS3- Release Date: 10/26, 10/28: An amazingly gritty, beautifully gory reboot of Namco's classic action horror franchise.

Medal of Honor- Xbox 360, PS3, PC, iPhone- Release Date: 9/30-10/14: EA, taking a cue from primary rival Activision, takes their storied FPS franchise from World War II to modern times. Let's see if their new Medal of Honor can translate into the commercial success that Modern Warfare did.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow- Xbox 360, PS3- Release Date: 10/5/2010: Taking cues from Dante's Inferno,Lords of Shadow is pretty much a God of War clone with Castlevania story elements thrown in. Hopefully that will translate into a decent game.

Kirby's Epic Yarn- Wii- Release Date: 10/17/2010: It almost seems like Nintendo is trying to give fans a major franchise every 6 weeks or so. Hopefully this game is as good as most want it to be.

there's no need to discuss the annuals and almost annuals, because folks who are going to get them already have them on radar. I am intrigued by the idea that Rock Band 3 has a guitar with actual strings on it. That kinda gives Prince no excuse for not having his music in that game. This month marks the end to the "slow season", and with so many big titles coming out, it may have been worth sitting through that dry spell.
