by Huey Chewwy in

James Harden is your NBA Live 18 cover athlete, Jackbox Party Packs 1 & 2 coming to the Switch next week, free play weekend on Steam for Saint's Row IV and For Honor, Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition coming in September, and new Dynasty Warriors 9 screenshots.

Fear the beard

EA is looking for redemption in its basketball franchise and perhaps they have the right cover star to help with that.  James Harden of the Houston Rockets is your NBA Live 18 cover athlete, in both Street and League forms.  A demo for the title arrives tomorrow well before the game releases on September 15th

It was only a matter of time

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus might be Bethesda's big title this Fall, but that won't be the only thing they'll deliver to fans later this year.  A Game of the Year edition of Fallout 4 will be made available on September 26th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.  All the latest updates, graphical enhancements, and official DLC are included in this package.

And if you didn't get one when the game originally launched or just want this for your collection, Bethesda will be releasing a limited amount of G.O.T.Y. Pip-Boy Collector Editions.  This bundle comes with the wearable Pip-Boy and the Game of the Year Edition of Fallout 4.  If you want one, be sure to act fast as they will be available at select retailers on September 26th for the price of $99.99.

Weekend free?

If you're wondering what to do this weekend on your PC, there are a couple of things happening on Steam to checking out.  Along with the free For Honor weekend, Saint's Row IV is also free to play this weekend.  If you're looking for a deal, check out the Adult Swims Games publisher sale with discounts up to 90 percent off.

Details are starting to come out regarding Koei Tecmo's upcoming Dynasty Warriors 9.  The game will be divided into ten chapters where you'll see events, both key and secondary, happen in front of you depending on your chosen character.  The oath in the peach garden and Cao Cao's rise to power are key events that are included in the game's story.

Have a good time

Planning a party and have a Nintendo Switch?  Perhaps you might think about picking up the Jackbox Party Packs 1 & 2.  Both are coming to the Switch next week on August 17th.

Building a better dynasty

If it is new screenshots that you're looking for, Koei Tecmo has provided quite a few to check out.  We even get a glimpse at the new Wei officer Xun You, a tactician serving under Cao Cao that contributed to many victories.  Dynasty Warriors 9 still does not have a release date but we know that it will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
