As the clock is ticking every second, we are about to hit the end road of August. In the past weeks, we were given a lot of great titles. From the adventures of a thief and mercenary to the kingdom invaded by vicious yet adorable white animals, August was a month full of enjoyable experiences. September, however, will be another stage of experiences that we have yet to unravel.
Now, as we slowly enter the door of a new month, we’re greeted with many smiling games as they await the beginning of September. So, wake me up from this hopeful dream when the month ends, alright?

You might want to give the franchise a second chance.
