Top 5 games to buy this month

After the summer which, although brought a few blockbuster titles, saw nothing other than a few stale releases, September has seen the introduction of countless games which certainly warrant your hard earned cash. (Dead Island, F1 2011, FIFA 12, Gears of War 3, MMA Supremacy, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Only 2 of those interest me and I got one of them already.

You got Dead Island and you're waiting for Gears 3? Or you got Resistance 3 and you're waiting for Dead Island? :)

Why isn't Resistance 3 on the list?
lastdual  +   1611d ago probably isn't going to tell people to buy Resistance 3...
nycredude  +   1611d ago
That site is a joke. for months all they talked about is ps3 exclusive games, for better or worst. Now they fail to mention any ps3 exclusives games when suggesting games to buy this month, and instead recommend Dead Island, which is a piece of crap technically.
iamgoatman  +   1611d ago

It makes sense to mention PS3 exclusives if say you're discussing similar games in a genre no matter the platform, but when you make a 'must buy' list and your magazine/site is xbox orientated why the hell would you add a game that's exclusive to another system? Have a bit of common sense.

Gears of War 3 lost to fake football? Anyone with a brain knows that Gears 3 is THE game to get this month!
ChrisW  +   1611d ago
People on this forum are a joke. They can't seem to realize that it's referring only to Xbox titles (some multiplat). And they think that any site that only speaks about one platform is purely a fanboy site.

Lately all that I'm hearing is NAG NAG NAG on Hell, I'm even starting to nag about stupid stuff.

Gears 3 is a possibility, but eh, I need money for Dak souls, got Dead island already. Reason for Gears over Resistance is my friends. Otherwise it would be 50/50, prob Resistance since the online is free and I don't have Gold atm.
TheMyst  +   1611d ago
I find this site laughable. All they ever talk about is PS3 this, PS3 that. Seriously, I don't understand why they're called msxbox-world when all they seem to care about is PS3.

So even though yea, an Xbox site wouldn't list PS3 games, this particular site is always bringing up Ps3 games, always talking about PS3 so what's stopping them now? LMAO!
Anon1974  +   1610d ago
I couldn't agree more. I've been saying this for awhile now, for an Xbox site, they sure write a lot of articles about the PS3.

I've still got games from Christmas I haven't had time to play. Portal 2 is sitting on the top of the pile at the moment, untouched - and yet still I'll be grabbing Gears 3 without a doubt and Resistance 3 will end up in my console eventually, but I don't feel like I'm in a hurry to play.

Dead Island has really been under my radar up until recently, but the more I hear, the more I like and I've got a few friends now who vouch for it. Again, I'm not in a rush to play it though.

Bought Dead Island and I've pre-bought Gears 3 using a voucher I won from N4G :D Yay! Thanks again N4G!

EDIT: Will say, I am enjoying Dead Island. 7/10 from me, but it aint a crap game, even if it has its problems :)

I agree on the 7/10.

I really like it but there is part of me that finds it almost repetitive to the point of boredom. I love the locale and story. The game is fun and can get intense when you start to get overwhelemd...but the side quests and such can get very repetitive. Its like Fallout3 and Far Cry2 had a Zombie baby!

Its good but I feel like it could have been better...weapons break down wayyy too fast too.
omi25p  +   1611d ago
Dead Island and Gears 3, Loving Dead island so far, the best zombie game ive ever played.
Miiikeyyy  +   1611d ago
Careful bud, If achievements/trophies stop popping up then your game isn't saving! I got 3 trophies that didn't pop up, went back on later and I was back to a level 10 (Lost over 3 hours of my save)
MysticStrummer  +   1611d ago
I was at 53% story completion when I quit earlier. I just loaded up my game and now I'm at 39%. Very angry right now. This game is selling well, and these devs don't deserve it. 5/10 from me.
Eazy-Eman  +   1611d ago
Same thing happened to me! Luckily I only lost an hour of progress, but still this is a serious problem and should be addressed to techland ASAP

Dead Island is a must buy.
-MD-  +   1611d ago
7 Disagrees? More like 7 people without friends.
MysticStrummer  +   1611d ago

fluffydelusions  +   1611d ago
Gears 3/FIFA 12 for me.
Dropdeadll  +   1611d ago
dead island is unplayable right now 1.01 patch ruined it :(
Iroquois_Pliskin  +   1611d ago
Are you playing it on ps3?
Dropdeadll  +   1611d ago
Iroquois_Pliskin  +   1611d ago
yeah thats why, i heard ps3 version is sadly the bugfest port
a08andan  +   1611d ago
Umm I would say that ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection is the game to buy this month :) At least for me^^
Holeran  +   1611d ago
I don't thing Ico and Shadow of Colossus is heading to a X-box near you.
Silly gameAr  +   1611d ago
This site never had a problem bring up PS3 games. Why stop now?
Tiqila  +   1611d ago
WHAT? sotc and ico arent comin to x-box?
going to get a ps3 this september
Baka-akaB  +   1611d ago
Nice try msxbox ... I'll go with Atelier Totori , Tales of Xilia , PEs 12 , Ico & SOTC instead .

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
GOW Origins Collection
Resistance 3

I already got Resistance 3 and it's great.
insanityisgaming  +   1611d ago
resistance 3 and gears 3 for me this month
IM_A_NINJA  +   1611d ago
Well I cant afford a ton of games this month, but Gears Of War 3 is certainly one I've had pre ordered for many months now. I also managed to get Rise Of Nightmares as well. Dead Island looks solid, but it'll have to wait.
iWishTifaWasReal  +   1611d ago
what the hell

WHY TAG "PS3" on this? there arent any ps3 exlcusive games anyway -,-

stupid stupid
TacticEspionage  +   1611d ago
Some of the games are on PS3 though!
iWishTifaWasReal  +   1611d ago
i said "PS3 EXCLUSIVES" -,-
Series_IIa  +   1611d ago
To my knowledge Dead Island, FIFA 12, F1 2012 and Supremacy MMA are on PS3...
iWishTifaWasReal  +   1611d ago
i know that. but how about games like

Resistance 3 and ICO/SOTC Collection, huh?

its just stupid for the guy who submitted this article to tag "ps3" if the site is dedicated to Xbox 360 stuff.
_Aarix_  +   1611d ago
We know you said ps3 exclusive. But some of these games involve the ps3 so its tagged.
theEx1Le  +   1611d ago
He tags it PS3 because 4 outta 5 are on ps3, whether you think it should include exclusives or not.
callahan09  +   1611d ago
I agree with iWishTifaWasReal: The PS3 tag should not be there. Why? Because even though some of these games are available on PS3, the writer is choosing his games from the perspective of an Xbox fan/owner. The PS3 is not a consideration for this list. PS3 games in September (sorry if I miss some): Resistance 3, ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection, God of War Origins Collection, Disgaea 4, Atelier Totori, Rune Factory, White Knight Chronicles 2... All I'm saying is that if your perspective allowed you to consider those games in addition to the multiplatform games, then the list would almost certainly not be the same.

Brownghost  +   1611d ago

Ascalon94  +   1611d ago
Imma go with the best of both worlds and get Resistance 3 and Gears 3. One of which I already own and currently enjoying.

Ser  +   1611d ago
Dead Island and Resistance 3 for me. I'm enjoying both games.
kramun  +   1611d ago
Dead Island is excellent, Resistance 3 is also good. I'm getting a backlog now though, I've got a fair amount of games to play, too many really.
teedogg80  +   1611d ago
I'm playing Dead Island and Resistance 3 right now. Also will be picking up Gears 3.
Tiqila  +   1611d ago
im going to get yakuza 3, vanquish and 3d dot game heroes
DanSolo  +   1611d ago
From everything I am hearing about Dead Island I think I will just wait and pick it up at a bargain price in the future when most of the bugs have been patched out....

I like a bit of Zombie action and I am still waiting for a truly class Zombie game that is done right but Dead Island although it doesn't look like the definitive Zombie game, it does look closer than most..... so a patched up, bargain priced buy sounds good to me!

Replace Fifa with NHL.
