It is now official: October 9, 2012 is the new May 15, 2012. May 15 was the day we got Max Payne 3 and Diablo III. October 9? The world will receive Dishonored and X-COM: Enemy Unknown, both of which are incredible (see? see?). AND there will be a new episode of the acclaimed Walking Dead game.

Plus: Retro City Rampage, the love-letter to old arcade and Nintendo Entertainment System games, done in the style of top-down, original Grand Theft Auto will be out tomorrow for download to PlayStation 3, Vita, Steam and GoG (coming to other platforms later). The new launch trailer's above.

How can a gamer with good taste keep up?
