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 No Man’s Sky but only time will tell (I feel it’ll never live up to the hype).

But there’s one thing that’s for certain…Legion is the expansion I’ve kept my eye on for a while and my collector’s edition 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?
