VGB Monthly: Our Top Stories of October 2009

The fall rush is in full swing, and this month’s review roster is all the proof you’ll need of that. Altogether, we published 23 reviews in October covering a wide variety of games, from big sequels/franchise games like Guitar Hero 5, Majesty 2, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Dead Space Extraction and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 to great new original games like Demon’s Souls and Nostalgia to sleeper gems like Undead Knights and Madballs in… Babo: Invasion. So enjoy the reviews and prepare for an even bigger November!

Quick side note- as we enter 2009’s closing stretch, if there are any games from throughout the year we haven’t covered yet that you would like our opinion on, let us know and we’ll do what we can to squeeze a review in before the year lets out.
