If it’s the last week of August, it must be time for Madden (360, PS3). Actually, I have no idea when Madden usually releases, I just needed something to open this week’s new releases. Having gave up on Madden years ago, this is a non-event for me but it means that football season is soon upon us so that makes me happy. In other “sequels I don’t have an interest in” news, Final Fantasy XIV Online (PC, PS3) releases as does Lost Planet 3 (360, PS3). Rounding out the releases we have SUDA51’s latest in Killer is Dead (PS3, 360), a new TMNT game for the 360 and Painkiller: Hell and Damnation for the 360. There’s also Shelter, for those looking to spend less time killing and more time saving badgers. Yeah, badgers.
