Games coming out in April 2017

March 27th, 2017 No comments

March was quite the month for me. My dad got cancer surgery (he’s doing good), work being weird, Switch, a bunch of posts, too much Power Rangers, Switch, Nier, probably other games… It feels like this month lasted a year. But we’re right at the end and it’s time to talk about next month!

The count in April: 17 multiplats,  a Switch release, 2 PS4 releases and a PC release. There’s a good number of interesting releases this month. I’m grabbing quite a few things.

So let’s talk about it!

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release). Indies in particular are kinda random, or bad at making their games known (I get that it’s hard, but if I don’t see anything about your game before it comes out, I can’t very much highlight it). So if there’s no indie games here, it’s pretty normal. I won’t spend hours that I could be playing games watching videos for indie games I have no immediate interest in.

Games coming out in March 2017

February 24th, 2017 No comments

Right, so a few cool things came out in February, but not much. I’m lining some things up for reviews/impressions. Not sure when I can get some of them out.

So March has one platform coming out with 12 launch titles and another later in the month. Otherwise I’m highlighting 4 PS4 releases, 1 that may be a PS4 release or a multiplat release, 12 multiplats, a PC release and a 3DS release.

Yeah, just a few days left, March is gonna be huge.

Games coming out in February 2017

January 25th, 2017 No comments

Alright, January was kinda quiet (still a couple releases upcoming and some that I’m playing in preparation for review), but soon we’re getting lots of stuff coming out. Hopefully I can cover a lot of stuff, we’ll see. I’ve been wanting to make this blog a bit more lively and I think I’ve been doing a bit better with it of late.

So February… 3 PS4 releases (2 exclusive), 9-ish multiplats, a mobile release, a PC release and a 3DS release. Surprising amount of stuff for the PS4 once again, that’s nice and very unlike the PS4.

So let’s go and see what’s up!

Games coming out in January 2017

December 29th, 2016 No comments

And after all this stuff, it’s also time to start again with the monthly releases post. Of course the most important thing happening in January will be the Switch event from Nintendo. They better not mess that up. Another thing, the PS4 actually has a couple exclusives coming up in the next few months. That’s pretty surprising considering its track record so far (outside of a handful of VR games I guess), I hope it keeps up.

So we’re getting a couple things this upcoming month. Maybe a few things that could be pretty interesting. 1 3DS release, 5 PS4 releases, 6 multiplats, a PC DLC (not something I usually highlight) and a Vita filler.

2017 in video games – hype or no hype?

December 29th, 2016 No comments

So that’s it for my GotY 2016 stuff. 2016 was a fairly weak year overall. So while I’m not SUPER EXCITED for 2017, there’s a handful of games I do have lots of hype for, so I figured I’d highlight some of those. Just for a quick fun post.

Let’s go and hope 2017 is a step up from the last 3 years. (note that this was written before the Switch event, so who knows if anything more is going to be officially announced there)

EDIT: I had to change this because Microsoft are stupid idiots and cancelled Scalebound… which might not be THAT big of a shame since it seems MS fucked with the development in the first place, as evidenced by a Kamiya tweet from 2015… but I’m still disappointed (also I did other small edits)

Games coming out in December 2016

November 26th, 2016 No comments

So in the November release post I never updated that Dragon Ball Fusions was coming out. It got its release date changed from December to November partway through the month. I expect to play it soon if Amazon.ca stop being shit and actually send it to me. I also have a few other posts planned. Not sure I can keep the number of posts going as much as I have recently (which is a lot more than usual), but I’ll try.

Oh and I won’t put Shantae on the list again, if it comes out it comes out, I’m not expecting it until next year at this point. Also Wild Guns Reloaded seems to have a december release date now, but sources are all over the place for that, some saying it’s in japan only and stuff. So I dunno what’s up.

So despite December being in the heart of the holiday season, no one likes releasing games in December. That has always baffled me just a little. This month we’re getting basically nothing, as per tradition. 1 PS4 release, 1 3DS release, a mobile release that I consider somewhat noteworthy and 2 multiplat releases.

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release). Indies in particular are kinda random, or bad at making their games known (no, putting your release date in your kickstarter updates isn’t gonna get the word out). So if there’s no indie games here, it’s pretty normal. I’m just highlighting the most noteworthy stuff and the stuff that actually has release dates that are easy to find.

Not much to see here, but maybe something is interesting for you here?

Games coming out in November 2016

October 22nd, 2016 No comments

Wow, lots of posts since the last release post, that’s quite nice. I want to try putting more stuff on here because… it’s fun, I like writing even if no one reads it. I do have some reviews coming still, and I’m still figuring out what kind of stuff I can write here.

So November… It gets a nice big “meh” from me as far as what I care about, and not a lot of games in general. 2 new pieces of hardware, 8 multiplats, 3 3DS games, 1 PS4 game and 2 PC releases. This is pretty pathetic for what should be the biggest month of the year every year. Do game companies just not care about the holiday season anymore?

Games coming out in October 2016

September 29th, 2016 No comments

September has been crazy, with DQ7 taking all my time and SMTIV Apocalypse staring at me and a couple other games I played. So I do have reviews on the way. I just need to have time to write stuff.

So October has a couple things: 1 Wii U piece of shit, 3 Vita releases, 1 PS4 piece of hardware (and some games I’m not listing), 17 multiplatform releases and 3 PC releases.

Games coming out in September 2016

August 23rd, 2016 No comments

Holy shit FFXV is coming o… wait it got delayed again. Oh well, at least there’s other stuff coming out and that means more time for me to play other RPGs. And maybe there’s gonna be enough releases for me to actually post stuff (or too much for me to be able to post stuff? We’ll see). I do want to start posting these rants I’ve had in writing for a while.

So despite FFXV being delayed (because of course), September still includes: 9 multiplats, 1 PS4 game, 7 3DS releases (8 if you count multiple versions) and 3 for Vita. Doesn’t sound like much (except for the 3DS, holy crap), but there’s some good or at least interesting stuff in here.

Games coming out in August 2016

July 27th, 2016 No comments

The summer months are always kinda slow. It might not look that bad when I count down the number of games right under this short paragraph, but it’s lots of filler. It’s pretty subpar overall.

August will include: 11 multiplats, 2 PS4 games, 1 PC release and 1 for 3DS.
