The new video game releases for August 2013 are looking pretty interesting. We have some titles that have been repeatedly delayed and a number of hot new games we're eagerly anticipating.

One game we're looking forward to is The Bureau: Xcom Declassified. Xcom: Enemy Unknown flew under the radar until it exploded onto the scene with its insane difficulty level and retro turn-based combat. It was fun, inventive, and unrelenting. Let's hope that the reworked Xcom shooter lives up to Enemy Unknown.

Obviously if you're a fan of ridiculous action, then you'll want to grab Saints Row IV. It is shaping up to be the most insane entry to the series yet and that is a wonderful thing. Where Grand Theft Auto has gone for realism, Saints Row still knows how to party.

Finally, we have Pikmin 3. Nintendo fans have been clamoring for a new entry to the series and this month, they'll finally get their hands on it. It looks to be the most intriguing and enjoyable entry to the series yet.
