Top 5 Hottest Games of August 2012

Zavvi.com: "If you’re a gamer, you’ll know that August is traditionally a pretty slow month for new releases, but make no mistake: there are some absolutely fantastic-looking games due to arrive in August this year." (3DS, Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, Darksiders 2, Guild Wars 2, New Super Mario Bros. 2, PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Xbox 360)

I don't know when game companies are gonna realize that you can release a game during summer and make great sales. Remember first batman game launched in August and did quite well

Sleeping dogs
Darksiders 2

Both pre ordered and both I think will do very well. I wish more companies release games all year long. It's either q1 or q4. It's like q2-3 don't exist lol P

Well before it launched most thought twyldnt be good lol. Look some of the biggest games don't launch in q4 like GTA and GOW so there is success to be had in other months. I believe if the game is good and there is some advertisement budget for it than it will do well no matter when it launches

like I said before, about 5 million PC Gamers are gonna ditch school, work, and just disappear altogether on Aug 28th.

I already told my Boss I'm gonna have the Flu from the 28th to the 31st!

Fall semester starts on the 27th for me. :(
College and gaming do not mix well.

At least I'll be able to play during the headstart.

This and playing Dark Souls again (PC this time) is gonna take up what little free time I'll have.
