Friday, Nerdy Friday: Upcoming Game Releases For September

Dead Island 
It's time for a vacation! Let''s see, we'll need to bring sunblock, towels, swimsuits, and ... a shotgun? With the ever growing popularity of zombies in our books, movies, and video games it was just a matter of time until we took them on vacation. Dead Island releases September 6th in the U.S. and September 9th everywhere else. Visit the Official Dead Island Website for more details.

God of War Origins Collection 
Let's take Kratos back to his gory roots, his gory PSP based roots. Finally! We can play these short but sweet God of War morsels on the big screen! Get yourself ready to relive all the puzzles, blood, bosses, blood, sex mini-games, and oh yes, more blood. God of War Origins Collection releases September 13 in the U.S. Check out the collection at  

 Shin Megami Tensai: Persona 2: Innocent Sin
The only game in the Persona series to never get a formal U.S. release is finally coming to the PSP! This will be a great addition to the collection of owners of both the 1st and 3rd games in the series which have already been released on the PSP. I am personally very excited about this release as I have played P3P and thought it was just incredible. Get your copy September 20th. Pre-order your copy at

 Ico and Shadow of Colosus Collection
Another exciting PS3 combo release announced at E3 this year. Play the Playstation 2 classics with updated graphics and sound on your PS3. I'm excited to get the chance to play these. I've heard lots of good things especially about Shadow of Colosus. Set to release int he U.S. September 27th. Read the article at

 Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny
Yes! Another Rune Factory for the Wii! Up until recent years, Rune factory has been exclusive to the Nintendo DS. That all changed with Rune Factory Frontier. I'm excited to say we Rune Factory fans will get another on September 27th with Rune Factory Tides of Destiny. Who will the new bachelors and bachelorettes be? What's the story line this time? I guess we'll just have to wait and find out! The official website is in Japanese folks so if you would like to find out more info, please visit your purchasing website of choice or head over to

 X-men Destiny 
As if we video game junkies didn't have enough to be excited about this September. I've saved the best for last! X-Men Destiny looks freaking awesome and releases on the 27th as well. Which system will you buy it for? Not trying to be prejudiced here, but if you buy it for the DS I will slap you silly. Go big or go home! *cough*xbox*cough* Ahem! Anyways... visit the Official Website for trailers, characters, and general infoness.
