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

Games coming out in July 2017

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!

Games coming out in June 2017

May 22nd, 2017 No comments

E3 is coming! As are my posts complaining that, once again, E3 sucked. And I can prove it sucked, because more than half the shit that was announced last year (or the year before, or the year before) still hasn’t come out. I don’t know if there’s any reason to be hyped about at this year’s E3 as a whole, but we’ll see. Someone could surprise us. At least we’ll see some Mario so that’s something. But as I mentioned in my E3 expectations post, I still love E3 even when it’s… not ideal. It’s still something I look forward to very much.

I will have several posts about E3 as usual. One combined post for Day -3 and Day -2 (EA, MS and Bethesda), one for Day -1 (Sony and Ubisoft and maybe the PC Gaming Show if that’s worth talking about), one for Day 1 (Nintendo and hopefully other random mentions of things that weren’t at the conferences), and finally, once E3 is over, an overall thoughts post.

So anyways, on to actual game releases in June. Not a huge month but there’s a small handful of cool things in there. I am getting a few of these for sure.

In addition to E3, June has: 9 multiplats, 3 PS4 games, 5 Switch games, 1 Vita game and 2 3DS games. I wonder how long its been since the Xbone got anything.

Let’s go!

Puyo Puyo Tetris mini-review

May 3rd, 2017 No comments

Puyo Puyo Tetris
I don’t feel like I need to go in-depth on a game like this. I mean, it’s Tetris, and Puyo Puyo.

Just thought I’d write a quick thing about it though, because it’s really fun.

So let’s go.

Games coming out in May 2017

April 27th, 2017 No comments

I blinked, is April over already? That was fast, after March felt so long to me. Okay so time for May I guess. April had a few big releases and I did manage to get a few reviews out, and I still need to review some stuff (Persona 5 is a beast, time-wise, but I will get as close to the ending as I can before writing anything about it… I might be getting close, who knows). Thankfully, May has very little of note, so I can rest a bit easy.

The count in May: 14 multiplats,  2 3DS releases, 3 Switch releases, 1 PS4 release and 1 Vita release. I’m buying almost nothing this month.

So let’s get it over with!

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/few 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.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment mini-review

April 1st, 2017 No comments


Shovel Knight is one of the few really strong examples of a successful video game Kickstarter. It was delayed nearly a year compared to the estimate date on the kickstarter page, but the wait was well worth it. Shovel Knight was a fantastic game in basically every aspect.

I don’t think I reviewed the first DLC, Plague of Shadows. But it was quite fun and felt like a completely different game than Shovel Knight despite taking place in largely similar levels and environments and using pretty much all the same components.

Specter of Torment is the latest DLC, and I thought I’d give my quick impressions about it.

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!

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk impressions

March 5th, 2017 No comments

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk
I don’t know that this is a kind of game that really merits a full review. There’s a lot of Dynasty Warriors games that use other licenses nowadays, so one review generally works for multiple games.

Berserk feels like a weird choice for the genre, at least as far as the story goes. That said, the idea of cleaving through armies with Guts’ giant sword is a great one. So I picked it up, basically as mild distraction until other stuff came out.

So this is a quick impressions post. Not doing a full review because I’m not fully done with it yet, and because there’s not really much to say about this game that a full review would cover.

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 I won’t review – Digimon World: Next Order

February 7th, 2017 No comments

Digimon World: Next Order
So last year we got Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, and my review for that was pretty positive. It was a fairly standard JRPG with the whole digivolving concept that let you have a large variety of Digimon in your party. It wasn’t the most amazing RPG out there but it did the job quite well.

So I figured, hey, why not buy the follow up. However I should’ve read this game’s title correctly, because this isn’t Digimon Story like Cyber Sleuth was, this is Digimon World. And what I got when I turned on the game just baffled me.

Why is this a “Game I won’t review”? Well, simple enough: I’m about 10 hours in, and I’m tired of it, and despite all that time spent I’m not even through Chapter 1 yet (don’t know how many chapters there are, don’t care). I’m basically writing this as a review, but please don’t take it as such.

Let’s go!

(this is really long for a “not review”, but I can’t consider it an actual review)
