Games coming out in April 2018

March 30th, 2018 No comments

So another month with not lots of posts. Just not too many noteworthy games coming out this year, the few that people seem to like so far this year either suck, and there’s like one or two I particularly care about but they seem pretty good. However I do have a review coming for Ni no Kuni 2, and I’ll be starting up my first Atelier game in years after that, and there’s a few things coming in April I might talk about. I wish I could actually get some content out on more frequently but it’s just not happening.

So in the meantime here’s the monthly list of upcoming games!

So this month there’s: a PC game, 4 multiplats, 4 Switch things (technically 5 but whatever) and 2 PS4 games.

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 a bunch of indie stuff (usually ports) on Switch, and maybe some other stuff, I dunno (it seems like Ys VIII is getting a PC release this month but I can’t find a date… I only care about the Switch release TBH).

Celeste review

February 11th, 2018 No comments


I’m actually really having trouble to even figure out what to say about this game. I finished it over a week ago and I’m not quite sure what to write in a review. Not because it’s bad, that’s very much not the case. But at the same time it’s so… straightforward. So it took me a while to get into writing this review.

There’s not much to say about it pre-release, I saw some videos and thought it looked pretty good. It looked pretty similar to something like Super Meat Boy. So I grabbed it.

Read on! (This will be a fairly short review)

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 I won’t review – 2017 leftovers

January 7th, 2018 No comments

So there’s a few indie games from 2017 I recently played and didn’t have time to post full reviews for. So here’s a few in my “Games I won’t review” format.

So today I’m not reviewing: Steamworld Dig 2, Ruiner and Pyre.

Let’s go!

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.

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 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.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus review

November 18th, 2017 No comments

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein: The New Order was one of many reboots of the classic Wolfenstein series. There was one in 2009 that was pretty boring and super-glitchy, there was Return to Castle Wolfenstein in 2001 which was pretty well loved, and even the classic Wolfenstein 3D was something of a reboot of 1981’s Castle Wolfenstein (a top-down 2D stealth game).

The New Colossus is a sequel to The New Order, so it’s nice to see a reboot of Wolfenstein actually getting proper sequels (there was also Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, which was a prequel to The New Order, and a game I thought was slightly better).

So yeah… I was pretty excited for this, though playing it was a challenge at first due to Super Mario Odyssey taking literally all my free time when it came out. But I finally got time to get through it after I finished Mario.

So let’s talk about it! Let’s go!

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.

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 month to find the one or 2 okay ones that pop up occasionally, unless some higher-profile indie things I care about comes out.

Cuphead review

October 1st, 2017 No comments

cuphead

This game was a long time in the making. I remember when it was announced several years ago I was instantly hooked by the way the game looked. But year after year we’d get more footage, but no release date. Finally E3 2017 gave us a release date, and I could barely contain my hype.

Not much more to say here so let’s go straight to the review.
