The Biggest Disappointments of Blockbuster Season 2014

Mikael Von Stroot for Fully 'Avin It writes: As gamers we all look forward to and dread in equal measure the months from September to December. After what is usually a barren spell for new game releases over the harsh summer months (or rainy months if you live in the UK) September usually ushers in Blockbuster season where all the biggest developers release a ton of their biggest and supposedly best games.

Some people really need to lighten up when reading things about video games.

The writer of the article obviously doesn't own a Wii U. The Bayonetta butt hurt is strong with this one.
