Games coming out in February 2018

January 28th, 2018 No comments

Well January was pretty quiet gaming-wise, but it does seem like things will speed up a bit soon.

So this month I’m counting: 14 multiplats, 2 PS4 releases, 2 Switch releases and a 3DS release. Nothing really huge here. There’s 2 games I’m getting for sure and a bunch of maybes. We’ll see.

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 for any reason. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release), and I’m not gonna dig through the hundreds of trash indie games that come out on Steam every day to find the one or 2 okay ones that pop up occasionally. So if there’s no/few indie games here, it’s pretty normal.

Also I’m skipping the boatload of indie game ports and third-party ports on Switch that will probably come out. I guess the more noteworthy ones this month would be… Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus and Payday 2? Pac-Man CE2 sucks though.

Games coming out in January 2018

January 1st, 2018 No comments

Alright, I’m done with the 2017-2018 transition posts. They’re the reason this post was late, it would’ve been weird to put it in-between that stuff. I do have a couple other posts I want to write soon, reviews that I didn’t get to writing earlier (and one game I do need to finish before I review it). So I’m trying to keep this up.

So January… Not a lot of note is coming out, but there’s a few cool releases. We have 6 multiplats, 3 PS4 games (I’m pushing here, one’s an import) and a 3DS release. A slow start for the year, but hopefully things will get better as the year goes on.

Also I’m skipping what is likely a bunch of indie game ports on Switch, there’s a few cool ones this month like Furi.

2018 video game hype!?

December 31st, 2017 No comments

2017 will likely be remembered as one of the top years in gaming, being put alongside other juggernauts likes 1991, 1997/98, 2001 and 2007. So many great games, some of the best examples of several genres, some games that will remain on top of the highest-rated games ever, forever. So how do you follow up a year like 2017? Honestly, I don’t think you can. But hopefully it still tries.

So I figured, now that I posted my GotY post, I would go and talk about my most hyped games of 2018. I’ll make it a top almost-10, because why not. I’ll also include a list of most noteworthy upcoming games, separating them between games I’m personally interested in for whatever reason and games I’m not particularly excited for. I may put some notes next to some of them.

Rules for this post: there are no rules. I will put in games that I’m pretty sure are coming in 2018, though I may get some wrong. I mean, my 2017 list had Scalebound as one of my most hyped games and look where that lead. Know that I am gonna make assumptions here.

So let’s go!

(quick note: this was written before the probably-coming-soon January Nintendo Direct, so if anything cool was announced there that fucks this post up… whatever)

Games coming out in December 2017

November 29th, 2017 No comments

I’m kinda late on this, but that’s fine. I did manage to post more than usual this month which is nice. Lot of stuff was coming out, so there was lots I needed to talk about. Good times. But with December things are more than slowing down, after the whole year being crazy it’s somehow in the holiday season that nothing all that big comes out… almost.

Christmacember gives us: 1 Switch game,  1 PC game, 5 multiplats, 1 PS4 remaster and 1 3DS filler game.

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 for any reason. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release), and I’m not gonna dig through the hundreds of trash indie games that come out on steam every day to find the one or 2 okay ones that pop up occasionally, unless some higher-profile indie things I care about comes out. So if there’s no/few indie games here, it’s pretty normal.

Games coming out in November 2017

October 23rd, 2017 No comments

Well I’m posting this slightly early. You know, Mario coming out and all, so I might as well push this before I have no time to play or write anything. Plus I have Wolfenstein 2 coming out on the same day, and several other games coming out close to the same time.. This’ll be rough. That said, I also have another post or 2 I kinda wanna do before that happens, so hopefully those’ll happen soon too.

So November… not quite as big as October  due to not having Mario, but there’s still several interesting games. I’m grabbing a small handful here.

November gives us: 1 PC port, 2 PS4 games, 3 3DS things, 4 Switch releases and 12 multiplats. Oh and a pointless black box.

Games coming out in October 2017

September 25th, 2017 No comments

Hmm… Well October this year has some of the biggest releases of the year, plus a bunch of smaller cool things. I have no idea how I’ll manage to play everything I am getting in the month.

So we’ve got 1 Switch exclusive, 20 multiplats, 4 3DS games, 2 PS4 things and a late port on PC. I’m getting a pile of these.

Games coming out in September 2017

August 28th, 2017 No comments

We’re getting right around when the biggest releases of the year come out. Not quite there yet, but getting there. I did manage to get several posts out despite the fairly slow August, and I do still have a few things to post about during September, so I’m pretty happy about that.

So for September we’ve got: 1 console, 3 3DS releases, 7 non-sport multiplats, 5 sport multiplats, 2 Switch games, 3 PS4 games, 2 PC games and 2 Vita games. And there’s a rant in here.

Games coming out in August 2017

July 24th, 2017 No comments

Halfway through the summer, there’s not a LOT to talk about. That said, I do have a few posts to make eventually when I have time to write them.

So August… A surprising amount of releases, but not much I find particularly noteworthy. There are a few quite cool things here though that I’m really excited for. We’ve got: 20 multiplats, a Switch release, 6 PS4 releases and a PC release.

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 for any reason. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release), indies especially. So if there’s no/few indie games here, it’s pretty normal.

Edit: added a multiplat game on July 27
Edit2: removed a Vita game on August 2, moved to next month

The “Why Nintendo might be back” rant

July 20th, 2017 No comments

So Nintendo. They’re very much worth talking about recently. They’re really interesting. When the competition is happy with not doing much of anything, essentially stagnating, it’s nice to see Nintendo not only shaking things up, but also being properly successful again too.

There were a lot of questions related to the release of the Switch after the failure that was the Wii U (a console I really enjoyed and defended quite a bit despite its obvious shortcomings and Nintendo’s blatantly stupid decisions) and how the company was run during the Wii. After several months of the Switch being out and their overall direction being more obvious than at launch.

So I thought… hey let’s rant about Nintendo somewhat. I’ve talked a bit about the Switch a good amount this year, but this is a bit more than that.

This is a BIIIIG rant, so grab some popcorn.

June 28th, 2017 No comments

The summer is starting. Usually not a big time for game releases, however there’s a few things this month, including a few actually-big releases. It’s gonna be a quieter month for me after the rush that was E3.

So this month we’ve got: 3 Switch games, a PC release, 7 multiplats, 2 PS4 games and 3 3DS games.

Let’s go!
