Monthly Release Dates: August 2021



Psychonauts 2 is a platform-adventure game with cinematic style and tons of customizable psychic powers.
For me August has too many games to choose from! I'm more than likely to pick up Aliens: Fireteam Elite myself, maybe even going so far as being dumb and getting the special edition for all those stupid cosmetic bonuses ('cause I'm stupid). It's a bit of a shame there's no proper cross-play for it but it looks really decent otherwise. Perhaps, if the prices are right, I'll get Grime and Falconeer as well. Other than those I'm eager to see the impressions for Psychonauts 2 and whether or not the first one is mandatory if you haven't already played it (or if it even holds up?) so it's not a day one for me. Also I wasn't even aware that Kena is releasing this month so I'm curious to see more as I've not heard much about it. Anyway what are you getting, Gaf?

As always let me know if any dates are missing or are incorrect. Oh and get Hades on console if you haven't already played it. It's simply fantastic.

There's a demo out now for Fracked now. I'll be picking it up at launch.


Just found out that Mortal Shell + DLC will finally be released on Steam this month as well. I wasn't too hot on it before but apparantly they're adding a roguelike mode which I'm all about so I'm kind of hyped now.


Golgo 13

The Man With The Golden Dong
Tsushima Expansion, Kena (depending on GAF impressions and reviews), and Hades coming to GamePass will be nice. Wonder if it will have Steam Cross-save? Guessing not

I'll be getting Kena, Contracts 2, and Fracked for sure.

Others I will get later: Greak, GoT Expansion, 12 Minutes, and I Expect You To Die 2.

Psyconauts 2 is a definite. Keeping an eye on the FPS, Lemnis Gate and may try it out, as I feel it could be a sleeper hit.



Haven't played Ghost of Tsushima yet, so I'll be checking that out.

Same for Hades and since it's on Gamepass I'll give it a go for sure.

Psychonauts 2 and 12 minutes are also interesting.


Hah in my gut it felt too soon for Kena anyway what with its zero marketing push or other sort of mainstream coverage. Off the list it goes then!
