Hello everyone! October is upon us, so it’s time to look ahead to what’s coming up this month. But before we get right into that, I do want to recap what happened in September. It was a much more productive month for me compared to August, so I felt pretty good about what I put out. A quick recap below.
In September, I was able to complete forma.8, and posted my review yesterday. You can find that here. Very neat and unique take on Metroidvania. Despite some complaints, it’s a pretty solid game.
I also got a review out for Thumper, you can see that here. Absolutely love this game, it’s such a rush.
I haven’t reviewed it yet, but Metroid: Samus Returns was released, and I posted about my first impressions here. I absolutely love the game, and currently have seven Metroids left to hunt down. Review is still to come, probably sometime next week.
September had a pretty surprising release of the Project Octopath Traveller demo. I wrote up a post about my thoughts and what I’d like to see in the final release here.
One of my bigger highlights was the launch of my new series, The Video Game Music Chronicles. You can see about that here. I had fun writing it, and people received it pretty well, so expect to see more of this type of stuff.
With that out of the way, let’s move on to what’s coming up this month.
The Video Game Music Chronicles – Volume #2
I won’t spill too much information on this one just yet. I’ll let this image be a teaser of what’s to come. Expect this post to be about Metroid though. I’m sure you will like it. Stay tuned this Friday for the post. You will be able to check it out here once it’s posted.
Question of the Month
I’ll be back at it again for QOTM for October. My post will be up tomorrow, and an advance link to tomorrows post can be found here.
Destiny 2 (PC)
I’m pretty stoked about this one. When the first Destiny came out, I was pretty bummed, because I didn’t have a need for a PS4 yet, but really wanted to play the original with my brother. There was the PS3 version, but it didn’t support cross play between the different platforms. That’s all changed now, as Destiny 2 will be launching for PC on October 24th. I can’t wait, and from what I here, it’s alot more focused on casual play, which is great for me. I won’t be too into the grind heavy stuff.
Stranger Things 2
I may or may not write about this, but Stranger Things 2 is coming out October 27th, a day before my birthday! Sweet! I loved season 1, and can’t wait to dive right into this. The trailer was pretty rad, and having Thriller be the theme song was off the hook!
Since it’s release, Stardew Valley caught my eye. Loving the original Harvest Moon on SNES, this game looks to be a re-imaging of that. I never did buy it, simply because this title screamed handheld to me. I could not picture myself being locked to my TV or PC to play this. I was bummed it never came to the 3DS, but come tomorrow, Switch owners will be able to enjoy this indie gem. You can bet your ass I’ll be picking it up.
Super Mario Odyssey
Probably the biggest release for me, Super Mario Odyssey. I haven’t played a full fledged Mario game since Mario 64 (Not sure if 3D World counts). so I’m pretty excited for this one. The last Nintendo Direct made me even more excited for it. My wife is also pretty stoked about this one. I can’t wait to play it come October 27th. Oh ya, incase I didn’t mention, that’s a day before my birthday, which is shaping up to be pretty damn good so far.
And that’s what October’s looking like. What games or TV will you be watching? Are you picking up Super Mario Odyssey? Let’s get chattin’ in the comments!
