Monthly Gaming Recap: September 2016

Phew, September certainly was the month for delays. My most anticipated of the year, Final Fantasy XV, for example, didn’t come out and another long developed gem, The Last Guardian, slipped from its original date as well. Plus so many others. I guess September is the best time to announce these things for the big rush of Fall games, but it wasn’t entirely bad. Let’s review everything video game related last month from the news to all my terrific content. Enjoy!
