The List - August 2013

PC games worthy of mention for this month, ordered by my interest. (Monthly US releases are only estimated, game may end up all hype and really suck).

Space Hulk - strategy
Turn based Warhammer game that tries to mimic the tabletop.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - shooter
Its been a long time in the making, retweaked over and over again.  To much surprise, the end result for the 1st person shooter in the XCOM universe takes place in the 1960s during with a reaping of X-files.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist - Shooter/stealth
This series continues to be great, despite its many critics.  The only problem this round...they dropped the voice of Sam Fisher, while favoring a younger Sam.  For those that enjoyed the continuous storyline.  Those days are over.

PAYDAY 2 - shooter
1st was a surprisingly good, low budget object oriented coop shooter.  The second promises to clean up much of the low budget rough spots.

Saints Row IV - Action/Adventure
on the list, because not all games need to be serious.
