Re: Games of 2015

Here is hope 2015 will be a better gaming year than 2014...

I'm looking forward to (in no particular order, apart from Bloodborne being first):
Bloodborne
Witcher 3
Zelda U
MGS 5
Torment
Mount & Blade 2
Project CARS
Xenoblade Chronicles X

...and perhaps some more news on Cyberpunk 2077, but I guess we don't see that before 2016.

Re: Games of 2015

assuming all will come out this year

eagerly waiting for
SuperHot
Inside
Mirrors Edge 2

not expecting groundbreaking stuff but eventually will buy
The Order 1886
Uncharted 4
Doom 4

positively optimistic but also slightly skeptical
Bloodborne (if the experience of wandering in the dark world is not overshadowed by a you died core)
The Division (if door closing mechanics was no bullshit.. that single movement is still my highlight of the last E3s, and WiC was awesome)
Star Wars 1313 ( i don't care that it got canceled. )
Quantum Break (the only reason i consider getting a Xbox so far and will this time patiently wait for a PC release)
Splatoon (if the SP is worth anything)

as soon i played the predecessors i might consider
Batman: Arkham Knight
Witcher 3

Re: Games of 2015

I do wonder why you guys expect much from the Order 1886, which to me looks like a re-skinned Gears of War?

Re: Games of 2015

I don't expect much more than entertainment from 1886. I like the setting.

Re: Games of 2015

I'm looking forward to (all PS4):

Don Bradman Cricket - this game is rock hard, I may try it out again on PS4.
Bloodborne - of course. Let's hope for a stronger effort than DS2.
MLB The Show - I didn't play this much this year, but hopefully can get back on track with it, and continue the career of my Road to the Show pitcher, Randy Hotnose.
Hotline Miami 2
Metal Gear Solid V - I enjoyed Ground Zeroes, so I may give this a go.

I would like to see Gran Turismo 6 and Beyond Two Souls on PS4 but I don't know if there are plans.

On PC:
Mount & Blade 2 - if this is coming, it will be great to jump back in and see what has changed.
Out of the Park Baseball - no doubt some small features to be added, but this is the game I spend most time with every year so...

...and of course the biggie!*

Fallout 4


*no idea if this is coming out, but November will be about that time in the cycle, no?

I guess that's called Gran Turismo 7? The GT7 Prologue might come some time 2020.

Re: Games of 2015

Definitely looking forward to:

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
- More MonHun. 'Nuff said

Majora's Mask 3D
- I missed Majora the first time around on N64. Looking forward to rectifying that.

Batman: Arkham Knight
- Holy Fanservice, Batman!

The Witcher 3
- Witcher 2 was one of my favorite games of the previous gen, and this will scratch my RPG itch. Not a fan of Dragon Age, so this was the big one for me.

Quantum Break
- I've wished Remedy would do an Alan Wake without the horror atmosphere. This feels like exactly that.

Rise of the Tomb Raider
- The reboot was amazing. This will hopefully live up to that.

Strongly considering:

RE: Revelations 2
- Specifically the Vita version. Revelations felt perfect on 3DS and I'm planning to continue this on a portable system. Unless the Vita port is not so good.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
- Just out of curiosity. Could be a precursor to FF15's combat. I'm not yet convinced totally, but I'm optimistic.

Mighty No. 9
- Hope this feels like the modern Rock Man/Mega Man game I've wanted.

Cuphead
- I love the 1930's animation artstyle. Crossing fingers that the game itself is great.

Re: Games of 2015

Zelda: Majora's Mask - 3DS: never played it originally and would love to finally get around to playing this game.

Mario Maker - WiiU: this idea intrigues me. Plus it includes odes to Mario Paint.

Re: Games of 2015

2015 is already halfway, so let's have a look:

Came, saw, conquered. Got my PS4 for it and happy about it.

Quote:
Witcher 3
Not the marvel it was supposed to be, not as enthused as I should be, will wait until I get a GPU upgrade...

Quote:
Zelda U
MGS 5
Torment
Mount & Blade 2
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Still waiting, waiting, waiting... hope we see some of them at E3.

Quote:
Project CARS
Slightly disappointing so far. I have a lot of technical issues and on my PC the thing currently looks like Gran Turismo 6 on my PS3. Meh.

My halfway list:

Quote:

Yes, super impressed with it and got a bit better at it this time around. It's a great game.

Quote:
Bloodborne - of course. Let's hope for a stronger effort than DS2.
Pretty great, outstanding even. Applause for FROM.

Quote:
MLB The Show - I didn't play this much this year, but hopefully can get back on track with it, and continue the career of my Road to the Show pitcher, Randy Hotnose.
Played through one season, not enough really. The game itself is excellent.

Quote:
Hotline Miami 2
Poor. Too big levels means I quit in the middle of one and won't go back. Save points at each floor would have been nice.

Quote:
Out of the Park Baseball - no doubt some small features to be added, but this is the game I spend most time with every year so...
Bought it, started it up to check out the changes, haven't played it.

All in all, it's been a good year as regards my expectations. There are also a few other gems I've played on next gen such as Life is Strange.

Nvidia dropped the ball on the 700 series graphics cards owners. It's like they purposely gimped the performance of the 780 and 780 Ti with this game, so much so, that a GTX 960 almost performs as well as a 780 with this game.

Screw that! I'm not replacing my EVGA GTX 780 Classified with a 980, just so I can play this game on Ultra. I'd much rather purchase the game for the PS4, than give either of them my money for the poorly optimized PC version.
