The kiddos might be back in school and the brisk winds of autumn are almost here, meaning that the gaming deluge is about to commence. On that note, we at Gamers Heroes take a look at 5 games we’re looking forward to in September. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.
5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in September
Tapping into the same vein as the Soulsborne genre (so to speak), Bandai Namco’s Code Vein is set to release in September. Set after a mysterious disaster brought ruin to the world, players will encounter a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. Gameplay is done in a third-person perspective, and features a number of vampire themes. We’re looking forward to facing these threats and getting lost in its open world.
Code Vein will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 27.
Developed by The Coalition, Gears 5 puts the spotlight on Kait Diaz, who is an Outsider of Locust descent. Horde mode will make its return, but will feature structures called “Taps” that force players to build out your base or shift your position in order to retain them. We’re especially looking forward to playing as Noble Team Spartans Emile-A239 and Kat-B320 in this Horde mode, if only for its pure fanservice.
The game will come out on September 10 for the Xbox One and PC, but fans can play it early on September 6 if they sign up for Xbox’s Ultimate Game Pass.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
A remake of the 1993 Game Boy classic, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will make its return to the Nintendo Switch in Grezzo’s remake. Featuring what the development team is calling a “retro-modern” art style, players will take control of Link once again as he sets out to find eight instruments to awaken the Windfish that resides on Koholint Island. We’re especially looking forward to its Chamber Dungeons, which will allow players to create their own dungeons.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will come out for the Nintendo Switch on September 20.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne
A full-fledged expansion to Capcom’s Monster Hunter World, Iceborne will make its way to the game in September. Set in the snow-covered terrain of Hoarfrost Reach, players will be able to take on the Master Rank, fight creatures like the Banbaro and the Beotodus, and new moves like the Slinger. We’re looking forward to seeing where the story takes us in this expansion.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6.
2K Games and Gearbox are teaming up once again to create the looter shooter Borderlands 3. Players are tasked with taking on Troy and Tyreen Calypso and the violent cult known as the “Children of the Vault” as they take on various missions. Procedurally generated weapons will make their return (allowing for “over one billion guns”), along with four new playable characters. We’re looking forward to trying out the new combat maneuvers the game has to offer in co-op play.
Borderlands 3 will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and …
The 17th century undoubtedly was an age of discovery an exploration through the world. GreedFall, the upcoming role-playing title from Spiders studio is taking an exciting approach to the theme with the addition of magic into the mix among other features. The discovery of a new and strange island serves as the trigger for an epic story that will have you traveling to an unexplored land in an official mission to search of a cure for a disease that afflicts your country. It sounds promising, and now it looks promising too because Focus Home Interactive has published a lengthy gameplay video that shows a bit more of what GreedFall has to offer.
As you can see in the video, GreedFall looks spectacular. Spiders has nailed it if we talk about the environment, the look of the characters, and the combination of magic, firearms, and melee weapons in combat. Everything seems to be in place to provide an epic experience to you once you set foot on the island for the first time.
GreedFall could remind some players of other recent RPGs where exploration, missions, and discoveries go hand in hand to deliver a true “adventure” feeling. Offering some of the best features of the genre, it has all the potential to entice players into getting immersed in a new world for the adventure of their lives. That’s something that’s missing in many titles of the genre lately; many of them feel like a collection of missions that guide you through a dull story in a lifeless fantastic world where adventure itself is secondary and your choices hardly ever matter.
The world of GreedFall
From the information we have so far, GreedFall could be deemed as a sort of new The Witcher 3. It’s true that the story behind it may not be as deep and engaging as Geralt’s, the game systems are not exactly the same, and the setting is completely different, but it’s also true that it has all the components to become the next great role-playing game and one to entertain the avid fans of adventures for a while.
GreedFall is coming out on September 10 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can find the best prices to buy it through our comparator.
Man of Medan is a game about getting your entire group off a ghost ship alive. Choices you make early on can result in death if you are not careful. Check out this Man of Medan life and death choices and consequences guide to get everyone out alive.
Man Of Medan Life And Death Choices And Consequences Guide
This is your first potential death that you might not even know about it. When Julia and Alex come up from the plane wreck, she wants to see what is happening on the Duke of Milan. Alex tells here to stay down to decompress and avoid getting the bends. The best thing to do here is to stay down below with Julia, the events are the ship aren’t that important. If you rise too fast and have her drink a beer during the ghost story, she can potentially die later. To be sure she doesn’t die form this, stay below to decompress, and don’t drink a beer during the ghost story.
The speed boat escape is where your quickest death can occur. After Conrad frees the boat and drives off, the pirate will shoot at him once with his pistol. There is a quick time event when this happens, if you fail he dies. If you succeed then he escapes and lives, but you lose being able to play him on the big boat. He will come to rescue the rest of the crew from the boat with the Coast Guard. If you leave on the Duke of Milan (Fliss Boat) then he explores the boat alone, giving him a bad ending. The best route here is to keep him with the group.
If you have Conrad on the ghost ship then he will run into a creepy old lady. The lady will chase him around the ship for awhile and there are a lot of chances to die here. If you are Conrad, you need to keep running until you get to the top of a tower. When he gets towards the edge, confront the creepy lady and you will survive. If you are playing co-op and one person is Fliss, comfort Conrad and try to calm him down every chance you can. You have to ace your quick time events and keep moving in order to not lose Conrad. You also have to ace them with Fliss so she doesn’t fall to her death if you are playing co-op.
When Fliss and Brad meet up, there is a potential for either one of them to drown. Whoever you send down below to look for a way up is the one you will lose. When the water starts to rise, make sure whoever is up top goes for the hinge and not the lock. They can’t break the lock, but the hinge will snap quickly.

Unveiled for the first time to the public at Gamescom 2018, The Dark Pictures Anthology is about to release its first title, Man of Medan.
With a launch scheduled for August 30, not later than tomorrow, Man of Medan offers us a small trip to the sea that will not be easy. As you probably already know, The Dark Pictures Anthology will bring together a whole series of horror games inspired by “teen horror” movies. Pete Samuels recently revealed that eight games are planned for the time being and that two games should be released each year.
On the occasion of the imminent release of Man of Medan, Supermassive Games has released a new cinematic trailer. This video, which takes the form of a trailer worthy of Hollywood, clearly shows us that the narration is in the spotlight, as the game is presented as an interactive film in the way of Until Dawn.
But this is neither the only video nor the only news of the day about The Dark Pictures Anthology. As is often the case today, studios usually send copies of their games in preview to some handpicked players, which is likely to generate reviews or let’s play videos about their games. This is how the second title of The Dark Pictures Anthology was just teased. With the name of Little Hope, we discover the first images of the game thanks to a trailer resembles Man of Medan. Supermassive and Bandai Namco have not yet said anything on the subject but the players who had access to the game did not hesitate to spread the word and unveil this video.
Although little information is given, we can see that Little Hope will bring us back to the mainland. We see a group of young people, including Andrew and Angela, in the forest around the little town of Little Hope, which seems far from peaceful. Some elements also recall a well-known movie that gives a name to a game which will also come out tomorrow: Blair Witch. In the video, we can see a person handling a voodoo doll, and the figure that we see in the “O” of Little Hope reminds us of those that the characters of the film discover in the trees.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is scheduled to release in 2020. Man of Medan will be released tomorrow on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Yakuza series has been running for more than ten years and they have become quite popular. The story of Kazuma Kiryu has given SEGA enough material to create a few games, some of them even based on secondary characters. We have also seen remakes like Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2, and even a prequel, Yakuza 0.
SEGA has surprised us with the announcement of Yakuza 7, a new title in the series that will follow the story of Ichiban Kasuga, another former Yakuza that has taken the blame for a crime he did not commit. The action will move to a new scenario too, and this time we will be able to explore the streets of Yokohama in an open-world adventure with RPG elements that will have a map three times bigger than the one in the previous game.
But what is really surprising is that Yakuza 7 will feature turn-based combat. Yes, you have heard it right. The next installment will have a completely different combat system. SEGA seems to be wanting to risk a lot with Yakuza 7 and might have turned the game into a sort of Final Fantasy. You can take a look at how it works in a video posted on GAME Watch Twitter account.
Guessing the reaction of the fans of the Yakuza series to this huge change in the game’s mechanics is not an easy thing. We should wait a bit longer to know more about the game before deciding if such a drastic change is worth it or not. Maybe the developers are trying to get the attention of a different type of players.
We will probably learn more about Yakuza 7 during the Tokyo Game Show next month. The release of the game is scheduled for January 16, 2020, on PlayStation 4 in Japan. It should come to the West a few months after that.
Inspired by the “choose your own adventure” books made popular ages ago, The Last Fairy Tale puts players on the hunt for Alexander Cooper in their new title Who Are You, Mr. Cooper? The books that made the genre prided themselves on trial, error, and interactivity – does this game manage to capture their spirit?
Who Are You, Mr. Cooper? Review
The tale of this title begins with a bang – literally. After catching up with your acquaintance Arthur at a tavern, an explosion goes off that kills your pal. In his dying breath, he gives you a letter and tells you to find Alexander Cooper, who knows the code. What follows is a journey through a steampunk world, one where a bunch of no-goods want you dead and life is a grind.
Traveling between 13 different districts in the fictional world of Staighrem, players navigate this capital of the Empire with their electric machine. The entirety of the game focuses primarily on text with the occasional management of coin, health, and inventory. It’s not unlike classics like The Oregon Trail, where everything must be kept in perfect harmony. For instance, players can take up a job for additional money, but it comes at the cost of your health.
When things go smoothly, this works as it should. The resource management can be entertaining, and being on top of the world can be a refreshing feeling. Winning a horse race or gleaning insights at the Inventor’s Club will put you out ahead, and it makes the rest of the game that much easier.
However, Who Are You, Mr. Cooper? has a nasty habit of relying on luck. Much like life, the game likes to throw a wrench into your plans at any given opportunity. A perfect example of this is with the never-do-goods who follow you around – arriving in random locales forces you to contend with these fellows, either by running away or blending with the crowd. Both have their drawbacks, as the minigames tied to them are rigged. One literally relies on a luck of the cards, while another requires fervent clicking that we were just not able to keep up with. It’s cheap, and it could have just as easily been removed to level the playing field. Seeing how failure leads to a swift kick to the title screen, this is a cardinal gaming sin.
The game also suffers from its repetitive nature. It’s perfectly fine that the game almost entirely resides in menus with text, but not a lot of time or energy went into the design of each area. Artwork for each district repeats itself, and visiting the same area multiple times will occasionally bring up the same options. There are times where players need to traverse from one area to another, paying up each time they travel, only to have to traverse back to the very beginning of the game because that lead was a dead end. To add insult to injury, some stops require a hefty payout under the “guise” of accessing an archive. If more work went into this design, it wouldn’t start to feel like a grind.
Note that there is a way to get through the game through the creation …
We already know about all the vampire clans that will be present in Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 but the universe of the game is full of different factions that have their own say about what happens in Seattle. The city has been there for long enough for plenty of different groups of influence, vampiric and not vampiric, to settle down in the streets and claim their own share of the territory as well as areas of influence, and the first one we know about is the Pioneers.
Bloodlines 2 – The Pioneers
Five factions fight for the control of the city and the Pioneers are one of the oldest ones. This group of vampires was one of the first to settle in Seattle and they view it as a “last frontier”, one that is free from the tight regulations and politics that affect other big metropolises. They are fierce, independent, romantic, and idealist, but they still believe in the structures of power than are needed to give society certain stability. Even though they once controlled a great portion of the city, they have been forced to give up most of their areas of influence and now they cling to their memories of long past power.
But do not be mistaken; the Pioneers are still a force to be wary of in the political arena of modern Seattle. The long years they have spent controlling the city have provided then with enough of a financial foothold to be deemed as one of the influential factions of Seattle. Under the leadership of Lou Grand, “longest-reigning prince” in the area, they will fight fiercely to maintain what remains of their old world.
As new factions are revealed in the following months, you will discover that the life of a vampire in Bloodlines 2 can be more complicated and fascinating than what it would seem to be at first glance. One step in the wrong direction or an inappropriate word in a bad moment may end in a world of trouble.
