In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

August 2013 Releases: Buy, Try, Or Die?

Of course, the gaming industry can't let you stop draining your wallet, and August is exactly when the holiday season starts. Or is it? I can never tell anymore. It just gets longer and longer and longer. That's because we have the likes of Pikmin 3 and Dragon's Crown, both reviewed and both releasing next week. Hey, we need more people for Dragon's Crown multiplayer, darn it!

Then later in the month, Nintendo has Mario & Luigi: Dream Team while Disney releases what is destined to be the cash cow known as Disney Infinity. The latter half of the month is dedicated to more hardcore gaming with Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Lost Planet 3, Killer Is Dead, Madden NFL 25, and the much-anticipated remake of Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn.

Saints Row IV gets its own sentence, because I'm an editor and I say so.
