The year 2017 remains to be a good year for games. Even if it was not that awesome -- with some hits and misses along the first and second quarter -- releases were mostly satisfying thanks to some indie releases that churn out some gems. However, the year is not over, and we still have more to look forward to in the coming months!

As TV Overmind observed, #September seems to be the likely candidate for being the best month for gaming this year. There are major titles that are going to drop next month; let's take a closer look at two of them!

'Destiny 2,' the Bungie shooter's Story Mode.

"Destiny" has always been a great game, with a strong fan base and a community that keeps growing.

This shooter from Bungie proved to have lasting appeal, and the company aims to bank on that with their plans for a September expansion.

This expansion will come in the form of an actual story mode for "Destiny." As veteran players know, some of the game's back story is mostly revealed through bits and pieces of lore, published on a companion website that is separate from the actual game. The September expansion will change this, as players will get to play through a story in-game.

It's an interesting expansion, to say the least, and Bungie seemed to have spared no expense in making the story somewhat engaging.

In the narrative, the Traveler ends up being captured, and this makes him unable to provide Light to the Guardians. This would have been not much of a problem except that Cabal armies are besieging Earth.

The Vanguard flees because they are deprived of their power, and it seems implied that it will be the protagonist's job to try and bring them back.

Really, it's such a highly-anticipated expansion to the game that most players even jokingly called it "Destiny 2."

'Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.'

Crossover fighting games are always fun to play, and the "#Marvel vs. Capcom" series is no exception. Earlier games in the series have been undisputed successes, with them being ported from public arcades to almost every console imaginable.

"Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" will enhance upon the tried-and-tested formula, and will reportedly feature "gimmicks" involving Infinity Stones this time.

Of course, the first thing always asked with these kinds of games is, "Is the character roster any good?"

It appears so. DMC's Dante, as well as Arthur and Mega Man, are representatives from the Capcom side, among others. The Marvel roster will be awesome as well, with Rocket Raccoon, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man leading the bunch. #Destiny 2
