My new year’s resolution was to be a better person.
Since I know that’s going to last all of a week, and I’ll be back to being an evil, no good son of a gun (watch out!), I also made a resolution to play more of my backlog of games.
But there are still a few games that I am really looking forward to, and plan on picking up day one.
First, there is the expansion pack for Pillars of Eternity - The White March. I can’t wait to come back to that world Obsidian built.
Then there’s Deserts of Kharak, a Home World spin off RTS, which looks terrific.
X-Com 2 - straight into my veins.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided. The previous new Deus game was pretty amazing, and I’m hoping new hardware can drive an even better experience.
Torment: Tides of Numenera - IF it comes out 2016, I feel it might be my RPG of the year.
If Numenera doesn’t come out 2016 I’ll pick up Divinity Original Sin II, otherwise I’ll probably wait to play it next year.
Mass Effect Andromeda - In-spite of it’s lackluster conclusion, Mass Effect was probably my RPG of the “generation”, even above Dragon Age (specially given what was Dragon age II). I’m hoping history will repeat, or at least tie with Numenera (or a possible Pillars 2).
Star Citizen - The single player aspect of this game is what interests me the most, and that’s due next year (right?!)
No Man’s Sky - I suspect I’ll be playing this before Start Citizen. Looks like it will scratch of my exploration itches perhaps for 2016 AND 2017.
Roller coaster tycoon World - so I’m still a bit skeptical, and I’ll wait for reviews, but, IF it turns out to be what it promises to be, then this will be awesome! Looking like a great year for strategy…
Total War: Warhammer - My favorite historical strategy series takes on a fantasy world. I will either hate this, or I will love it till the day I die. Either way, I’m picking it up.
Then there’s VR. Lots of games are coming out for both Valve’s Vive and Oculus Rift - I’m really not sure what I’ll do. I’ll probably wait and see how the devices are received before investing… I might even sit out until 2017 when I can hopefully find a deal on some Pascal/Polaris GPUS.
so what games are you guys planning on picking up? Are you thinking of picking up a VR headset?
