September isn't nearly as busy as October or November in terms of big releases, but it does a very good job of continuing the busy release season started at the end of August. With that said, here are 15 games you have to play next month. (3DS, Borderlands 2, Dead or Alive 5, Entropy, FIFA 13, LittleBigPlanet 2, NHL 13, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Wii, Xbox 360)

I'll be picking up FIFA 13 since skipped last year
-Mika-  +   1264d ago
But you're an American. Why would you want to buy Fifa.
NYC_Gamer  +   1264d ago
Because i'm a fan of the sport
BringingTheThunder  +   1264d ago
just cause he isnt from the uk doesnt mean he cant enjoy it
DrTwinkletoes  +   1264d ago
Plus FIFA games are consistently of good quality for annual sports games so he should go for it.

I... don't even know how to respond to this. I keep trying, but nothing seems adequate enough to explain how exasperated I am at this comment.

I feel like I want to reach into the screen and slap you until your brain resets, but I don't know if that will do any good...
MidnytRain  +   1264d ago

Omg, I lol'd.
jeseth  +   1264d ago
Americans don't care about Futbol in September ... they care about FOOTBALL.

Soccer sucks.
kcuthbertson  +   1264d ago
Wow jeseth...way to have an open mind.

Good thing the rest of the world is in love with Soccer...chances are if you're the only one not enjoying something, then you're the odd one.
jeseth  +   1264d ago
@ whoever your name is ... we were talking about America, not the world. Read more, react less.

TV ratings in the US fully support my statement. Soccer is behind Football, Baseball, Basketball, amd Hockey in the US ... and NASCAR.

Soccer definitely sucks. "Enjoy" Soccer if you want (I'd rather watch golf ... golfers have more balls than soccer players) but don't try to pretend that soccer is a big draw in the US. MLS is like the WNBA ... not even on par the COLLEGE FOOTBALL nevermind the NFL.

Just a bunch of fairies faking injuries and crying for penalties, thats what Soccer ... oops "Futbol" players are.

I will get fifa 13 because...
I never got it any other year.
MysticStrummer  +   1263d ago
@jeseth - Americans are morons. The world laughs at them, but is also afraid of them, sort of like the big stupid bully with a temper who lives down the street. I'm an american by the way, and it makes me sad to see how idiotic this country has become. Most americans believe in angels and creationism, and scientists are scoffed at as elitist snobs, so please don't offer up american habits as something that should be emulated by the world. NASCAR... smh...
Crazay  +   1264d ago
YAY!!! Diving and crying with an Xbox/PS3 controller. Fun for the whole family.
BringingTheThunder  +   1264d ago
borderlands 2: get out of my dreams and into my car!
-Mika-  +   1264d ago
The first Borderlands is the reason why I don't buy games off of hype anymore. It was really boring. I never really understood why everyone liked it.

Im definitely renting the 2nd one to see if it improve the gameplay. I don't know what they could to make it more fun but it has to do something If they want me to spend 60$ on it again.
BringingTheThunder  +   1264d ago
if you dont like open world games, it might have been boring but if you like open world games it was a ton of fun.
TrendyGamers  +   1264d ago
I remember picking it up for $40 at launch because Wal-Mart had it really cheap for some reason and I really enjoyed it.
DrTwinkletoes  +   1264d ago
First Borderlands was anything but boring. It can get slow if you play alone, but never boring.
Crazay  +   1264d ago
I'm jacked for Borderlands 2 - Just hope the story is better

hulk_bash1987  +   1264d ago
If you are playing by yourself then I can see why you didn't enjoying it. The game was meant to be played with others/friends.
jeseth  +   1264d ago
Got Borderlans GOTY for 23 off amazon, was fantastic.

Loved the cell shading ... weapons ... great game.
NeoTribe  +   1264d ago
Your either not a fan or loot grabing, level grinding rpgs or you prolly played alone. Couch coop was prolly the most fun I've had in years and the online was great aswell. Alone was ok but gets alittle boring.
schlanz  +   1264d ago
Can't wait for this game. Borderlands remains one of my favorite FPS of this generation. I definitely think it was a game that could be refined a lot, so hopefully the sequel improves the areas that were weaker in the original. Either way it's definitely going to be a fun game.
Swiftcricket  +   1264d ago
I played Borderlands completely alone until I was finished with my first 2 playthroughs and still had a blast. Only regret is how long I waited to buy it.
Excalibur  +   1264d ago
Borderlands 2 will be the only thing I'm playing in September.
Then Dishonored in October
Halo 4 in November
Farcry 3 in December.
DrTwinkletoes  +   1264d ago
Dishonored/Xcom: Enemy Unknown-October
Assassins Creed 3-November
Eating my weight in Xmas Candy- December.
soundslike  +   1264d ago
Shit...XCOM is october??

I thought that was Q1 2013 for some reason
schlanz  +   1264d ago
Borderlands 2 with Guild Wars 2 on the side

..or is it the other way around...
TrendyGamers  +   1264d ago
I'll be checking out all of the Indie Games Uprising titles, I'm hoping for some gems.
GamePodunk  +   1264d ago
Agreed, there have been some really enjoyable indie titles this year so far. I would almost say much more so than boxed retail titles.
jeseth  +   1264d ago
Have games become the new music scene? Are you too cool to play awesome games that are proven over time?

Don't be a game snob ... you look like a _____.

What a dope.

I'm sure you'll agree, free thought, alternate perspectives or independent thought will soon be a thing of the past under our young judgemental go-getters shift.

Can't wait for Borderlands 2!!! That and Double Dragon Neon =)
Rampaged Death  +   1264d ago
FIFA, Borderlands, Walking Dead and Mark of the Ninja will all be purchased for me. Hopefully Retro City Rampage is finally out as well.
TrendyGamers  +   1264d ago
Episode 3 of The Walking Dead might be out this month, so it might be Episode 4 that we see next month.
jeseth  +   1264d ago
I hope so, TWD was supposed to be a monthly episode game. Kinda PO'd at Telltale right now concerning TWD
domino5343  +   1264d ago
BL2 is a must play and buy. CANT WAIT!
-MD-  +   1264d ago
You've played it?
domino5343  +   1264d ago
Nope,my mistake lol. Lets try this again.

BL2 is a must buy. CANT WAIT! lol
EyeGlitch  +   1263d ago
Seriously dude...
Series_IIa  +   1264d ago
... Not even finished Borderlands 1 yet! I bought it on xbox on release but Fallout 3 and New Vegas playthroughs took over, then bought it on PC but then the PC version of New Vegas took over once again!

I do Borderlands 2 pre-ordered though on Steam for when I am ready!

Can't wait for NHL! Not sure why MP of the year awards always go to shooters when sports games do it so much better - they actually have real team play, not just a bunch of guys focused on their k/d who happen to be on the same team.

5 vs 5 sport MP people are actually trying to win the match, there's no camping, people care about the objective (winning) and generally actually work as a team.

I'm not sure what all is coming out in September, but I know I'm getting LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and Jet Set Radio HD. LBP Vita looks like a serious GOTY contender to me.
spok22  +   1264d ago
Why does LBP Vita and Borderlands 2 have to come out the month i go back to school -_-
Gen0ne  +   1264d ago
That'll be 3 for me: Borderlands 360; DoA PS3 and Teken PS3
crawling182  +   1264d ago
Borderlands 2 and LBP Vita will be keeping me busy along with continuing Guild Wars 2
Dante112  +   1264d ago
LBP Vita and Fifa 13 for me.
windblade  +   1264d ago
Borderlands 2 will probably be the best game this month. the first one was great and so was the dlc and part 2 looks like a bigger better game imo. All in all great month for gamers......
lksdfnsdfwe   1264d ago | Spam
Gran Touring  +   1264d ago
...Guess I'm one of the few that's looking forward Tekken Tag 2.
Relientk77  +   1264d ago
Cant wait to play Borderlands 2
Krew_92  +   1264d ago
The only one I'll be playing next month really is LBP Vita.

I've been waiting so long for that game.
taijutsu363  +   1264d ago
Lol I think they mean the ONE and ONLY game you have to play this September is BORDERLANDS 2!!

Borderlands 2. That is all.
Dougz_G  +   1264d ago
I'm so hyped for borderlands 2, looks like they've improved every aspect of the game considerably, cant wait!!
beerkeg  +   1263d ago
Nothing on my wish list for September.
WagFanger  +   1263d ago
Never really got into Borderlands 1. Maybe I'll give it another go
Parasyte  +   1263d ago
Never hurts to try a game after not playing it for a while. You might enjoy it.
Ultr  +   1263d ago
its free on ps+ right now! you should! its really great
Parasyte  +   1263d ago
Only have 2 games that I am absolutely looking forward to this fall.
Borderlands 2 being the main one. I see myself playing that one until Borderlands 3 comes out, especially once the DLC starts coming out.

The other is MoH: Warfighter. I loved the 2010 reboot and Warfighter looks to be a massive improvement.

I'm also picking up BO2, mainly for the campaign and zombies, but I'll also play MP with friends that are getting it.
TopDudeMan  +   1263d ago
This list only has 7 games mentioned in it.
typeN8  +   1263d ago
LbpV and BL2
Cant wait gonna be a great way to end the yeari
Borderlands was great so im stoked for the second
And lbp vita....omg its a frackin ready
Breadcrab  +   1263d ago
So basically, every game that comes out in September. Very helpful and specific list.
urwifeminder  +   1263d ago
