Games to get in September

Holy crap! Who opened the flood gates so early!?

*begins hastily stacking games in the "still unplayed" pile* I wasn't ready for this. They told us October at the earliest!

*drowning in sea of new games* They told us Octobeeeeeeeeeer......

1st- Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny (PSP)
8th- Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii)
8th- Dirt 2 (Every system)
8th- Mini Ninjas (PS3, 360, Wii)
8th- Disgea 2: Dark Hero Days (PSP)
9th- The Beatles: Rock Band (PS3, 360, Wii)
14th- Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (DS)
15th- Scribblenauts (DS)
15th- Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (Every system, ever.)
15th- Wet (360, PS3)
22nd- Africa (PS3)
22nd- Katamari Forever (PS3)
22nd- Halo 3: ODST (360)
22nd- Shin Megami Tensei: Persona (PSP)
29th- MotorStorm: Arctic Edge (PSP)
29th- Undead Knights (PSP)
29th- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (PS3)
29th- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS)
29th- Dead Space: Extraction (Wii)

Wow it's a great month to be a (rich) gamer. I don't have the kind of change to throw around on more than a title or two a month, so many of these titles will be going on my "hope to play this someday" list for future consideration.

The Xbox only has one big exclusive coming out in September, but when that exclusive is as big as a new Halo game, one is all you need.

Wii owners with a brain can rejoice as two of *counting* like three decent titles coming out in the next year are up for grabs this month in the Dead Space rail shooter and the gorgeous Muramasa. One is a mature game and the other looks like a true gem, so expect both to fail horribly for everyone's favorite little white box.

Portable fans have plenty to be excited about as Scribblenauts leads the pack of fantastic games for those on the go. Also big on the DS is the new Kingdom Hearts game and, well, it's a Kingdom Hearts game. You HAVE to love it.

Over on the PSP, new life shines through as Soul Calibur, MotorStorm and freaking Persona all come out in short order. It's been a slow year for Sony's handheld, but this could be the start of another fantastic gaming cycle.

Finally, I feel I should explain Wet's presence on the list. Yes, the demo showed off a few flaws including a wonky camera and controls. But I want so much for this game to succeed. It was fun, stylish and had the courage to try something different. So, at least give it a rent, will ya?
