DualShockers New Release Rundown Week of 8/24

By Joel Taveras

August 24, 2009

This week’s new releases mark the beginning of the end of your social life as you know it. The Fall release schedule is finally upon us and if this week is any indication of things to come then your piggy bank’s days are numbered. I know most would call this something like “week in games-dark knight edition” or something to that effect, and as great as Batman: Arkham Asylum is shaping up to be (stay tuned for Al’s review by the way), there are many more sure-to-be hits releasing this week too. Dissidia Final Fantasy, the ultimate JRPG nerd-gasm in the making, hits shelves also this week (with Yaris all over it like white on rice).  If you need any more proof as to how crazy this week actually is… all I can say is that you finally have a reason to dust off your Wii!
