I feel like I say this every year but it looks like 2015 will be a fantastic year for gamers; or at least me! Probably not so much my wallet. I have so many older games I need to pick up still and so many new games I want to buy. Ahh! There isn’t enough time in the day.
Some of these games might get pushed back. I have no idea. Delays generally don’t bother me as I have enough to play and more money stays in my wallet! So.. In no particular order..
One: Persona 5
Who wasn’t hyped when they saw the recent trailer? The art style reminds me of Catherine and I absolutely adored it. There’s a cat! A cat! Oh lordy. So many cats in game trailers lately. Cat Cam anyone? The music so far is as amazing as expected! I literally can not wait to play it! IT JUST LOOKS SO GOOD.
Two: Story of Seasons
I love Harvest Moon. Harvest Moon is really the only ‘simulation’ game I play. There’s just something about bulding your farm and raising animals that gets me! I’m a little sad that Story of Seasons lost the Harvest Moon name. Poor people are going to pick up Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley and be so disappointed. Story of Seasons is what you want guys! Plus when you pre-order it comes with a cute Angora Rabbit plushie at least from Amazon!
Three: Xenoblade Chronicles X
Don’t hate me but I haven’t played Xenoblade Chronicles. I’ve owned it since release but have never gotten around to it. Since the hype of Xenoblade Chronicles X I really want to play it. I just can’t fit an RPG in with my 52 games challenge. Maybe I can? I just want to play it now! My goal is to beat it before Xenoblade Chronicles X comes out and I am sticking to that!
Four: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
I have always been interested in Type-0. Way back when it was Agito and part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis world. Nothing happened and I let it go. Now I am so excited that we get to play it and on PS4. A lot of people seem disappointed that it isn’t on Vita but I would always choose a console version over a handheld. The bigger screen and the controller just works so much better for me. Not only am I pumped for this game but I would be lying if I didn’t say I was even more excited for the Final Fantasy XV demo that comes with it. I have wanted that game since I was in Grade 10. Such a long time ago. Now I actually get to play at least a little bit of it. I can’t wait!
Five: Tales of Zestiria
The game looks so pretty! I like Tales games. They are always just fun JRPG’s. I am never disappointed by them! I actually don’t know too much about the story or generally anything about the game. I will buy it because of the ‘Tales of’ name alone.
Six: Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart
Neptunia games are so gooooood. I just find them funny and enjoyable. I love getting the majority of the references and seeing what they actually managed to put into the games. I like most of the characters and Noire is no exception. I am excited to play a game that doesn’t have Neptune as a main character. Nothing against her but something different is great. Not in Gamindustri either! The game play is also different. Ah Noire is the best!
Seven: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 left me hanging. Now the anime is leaving me hanging too! I guess I should just bite the bullet and read the manga.. Regardless I am super keen to see how this played out. I loved UNS3. It’s actually what caused me to start watching Shippuden. I never wanted to as I was SO far behind (I started at the end of last year) and thought I would never catch up.. But I have! It will be nice to play a good Naruto game again and less of the ‘filler’ games e.g Revolution and Generations.
Eight: Kirby and The Rainbow Curse
Kirby is so cute. You can’t go wrong with a cute little pink thing that sucks enemies up and gets a cool hat. The clay work looks so pretty and the game looks like a lot of fun. I like these kinds of games because they are a nice break from the more serious grindy games that I play. So thanks Kirby!
No date on this so who knows but I am keen for it. I need something to play on my Xbox One and this game looks intriguing. I have never found another game quite like Dragon’s Dogma. I loved it. Being able to climb up huge enemies and take them down. So anything with large enemies gets my attention.
Ten: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary
Can’t wait to play this when it comes out! I love the graphics. It gives me kind of a Child of Light vibe but a little more mature.
