So there are some of the upcoming games this month and there are some really intriguing picks, with the likes of Champions of Anteria, Steins;Gate 0 and God Eater. But unfortunately these games are likely going to be overshadowed by No Man’s Sky and World of Warcraft: Legion.

I’m still a bit skeptical of [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ZQB28XK” locale=”US” tag=”effgamblo21-20″ cart=”y” localize=”y” popups=”n”]No Man’s Sky[/easyazon_link] but only time will tell (I feel it’ll never live up to the hype).

But there’s one thing that’s for certain…[easyazon_link identifier=”B017MRX6CM” locale=”US” tag=”effgamblo21-20″ cart=”y” localize=”y” popups=”n”]Legion[/easyazon_link] is the expansion I’ve kept my eye on for a while and my [easyazon_link identifier=”B017MRX6CW” locale=”US” tag=”effgamblo21-20″ cart=”y” localize=”y” popups=”n”]collector’s edition[/easyazon_link] is on the way! Make sure you tune into the demon invasions, Broken Shore, early access Demon Hunter (if you’ve pre-purchased) and the Dark Whispers event next week.

I’ll see you next month for upcoming games in September!

Which games are on your wish list this month?
