Poll: March is looking pretty good so far. (44 votes)

Sekiro - Shadows Die Twice 86%
Left Alive 14%

I don't buy too many games at release; at full price. But there are 2 games coming out in March that I am super hyped about. But I don't know which one to get. Of course I'll wait until reviews/quick looks come out before making my purchase.

But which game would you buy at full price if you could only choose one and knowing what we know now? There's not too much information about either, but which one are you guys most hyped about?

Sekiro - A dark souls/tenchu hybrid thing?


Left Alive - An open world Metal Gear/Front Mission type thing where choices matter?

I think Left Alive looks much more interesting/unique but Sekiro will probably be the better game.

Weirdly enough Left Alive kind of looks like something From Software would have made 10 years ago.

Sekiro, I've never had a complaint about a From Software game. Left Alive? Looks like they are trying to revive Front Mission Evolved, a decision I'm confused by when it's clear fans are interested in a turn based Front Mission game but who knows it might turn out to be a very good game. For Left Alive I think it needs a ton more hands on impressions(including what the gameplay entails) are required before it even registers imo.

For what it's worth at least they didn't put Front Mission in the title. I think it's a smart move.

Left Alive is interesting for sure. But I'm getting flashbacks to Metal Gear Survive from the gameplay videos I've seen which is concerning.

I was going to say Sekiro since modern From Soft is a known quantity. But modern From Soft ain't makin' Armored Core anytime soon, so now Left Alive looks really interesting. That, and I just got a PS4 and Bloodborne about two weeks ago. And goddammit, I just want another Armored Core, but I'll take Front Mission as a suitable substitute.

Sekiro all the way for me. I'm never going to pass on a From Software product, and from what I've seen of the game to this point it looks like it's very much in my wheelhouse.

It's weird that successors to Tenchu and Front Mission are coming out this year. It's also weird that Activision is publishing Sekiro since it doesn't seem like the kind of game Activision would want any part of. I hope they both turn out great but since I really suck at video games I'll be getting Yoshi in March instead. Good luck players.

Left Alive doesn't really look interesting to me in any way, unlike Sekiro...but since it's probably going to be really fucking hard, I doubt I'm going to buy Sekiro either. Or if I will, I end up getting frustrated after the first 10 minutes.
