Hey gang,

I'll admit this up front- this post is largely made because I'm pretty ignorant as to what's coming out for the rest of the year, and I'd like to see what you guys are looking forward to so I can steal some ideas!

But I guess yeah, what is coming out that you guys are eager to play this year? It seems that the early chunk of the year was SO PACKED with great games, that it seems like there's nothing left. But I'll be damned if there's actually quite a few games coming out this year.

For me, I guess it's:

-South Park TFB

-Mario Odyssey (This will be the game that will make me pick up a Switch)

-I know this isn't technically 2017, but Ni No Kuni 2 comes out EARLY January, so that's on my list.

What about you guys? Anything super special you're looking forward to getting your teeth into? I'm expecting a lot of Destiny 2 in this thread!

I'm mostly looking forward to Ys VIII coming out the 13th.

Other than that there are some indie games like Cuphead, RUINER and Tooth & Tail that I want to play. And some big releases like Shadow of War, Evil Within 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein 2.

I WAS super excited for Shadow of War, but the microtransactions stuff put me off. I guess I'll wait and see what people say in reviews, but I'm immediately put off by what I've heard

  • Mario Odyssey (HUGELY excited for this game, kind of can't believe it's barely a month away.)
  • Need for Speed: Payback (In trailers this looks like the Burnout/Fast and the Furious game I want, but it's Need for Speed, which has not been good recently, so my excitement is somewhat tempered.)
  • Cuphead (This looks fantastic. I'm sure it will only play alright, but the animation is so gorgeous I probably won't care THAT much.)
  • Star Wars Battlefront II (I had fun with the first one, even if it was a bit content light. If the story is good and the vehicle combat improved I could see myself playing for 50-100 hours.)
  • Vampyr (This looks awesome and moody. Pretty excited.)

There are some other games that I'm interested in and may pick up.

  • Destiny 2 is getting a lot of hype and I'm fighting back getting suckered by it like I was the first one. Definitely feeling the pull but also...I played a lot of Destiny 1 and came around profoundly dissatisfied, then bought the expansion stuff and never played it. SHOULD wait and see on this rather than jumping in.
  • Wolfenstein II looks good but I haven't played the first one yet so I'll probably wait on that. No particular reason I haven't dived in, just haven't.
  • Assassin's Creed Origins looks intriguing but I haven't played one of those games since the first and most of the rest have looked pretty unappealing. Definitely a wait and see.
  • Shadow of War is something I was looking forward to despite being lukewarm on the first game, since "bigger and better" would definitely have improved that game, but the microtransaction stuff has definitely put me off.
  • I have a good feeling about Super Lucky's Tale but don't know enough about it to get hyped. We'll see what the reviews say. I have my eye on it though.

I guess we already had a thread similiar to this, but eh, no matter. I'll just list all the games I'm at least somewhat interested in.

  • Assassin's Creed Origins. The setting looks great and if the new combat system's actually good, that already does a lot.
  • Cuphead. Visual style alone has sold me on this, though I've started to become somewhat worried that the supposed challenge is going to be too much for me and I won't actually make it far enough to see all of those fantastic looking levels and bosses.
  • Destiny 2. It's more Destiny, except hopefully with more content and a better story.
  • Ruiner. This looks like it oozes with style and has some brutal, fast-paced combat to it. Hopefully it plays well too.
  • Shadow of War. Like the first one a lot, so that alone makes me interested.
  • Super Mario Odyssey. If I don't happen to make any (other) expensive impulse investements before this comes out, I just might buy myself a Switch. Obviously this'd be the first game I would get.
  • The Evil Within 2. The first game had multiple, severe flaws, but there's still room in my heart for a third-person horror game. They can only improve on this after the first one...right?
  • Wolfenstein 2. Loved The New Order and this looks to be everything I could've hoped for from a sequel to that. This is the one game I'm most interested in and definitely buying.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 and supposedly the new Toejam & Earl are all that are left for me. Maybe WWE 2K18, but I play that on PC and it won't be out till next year.

Etrian Odyssey V is the biggest one for me. Between that and my backlog. I should have more than enough to keep me busy for the rest of the year. I'm about to play thru the first Dishonored though, so depending on how much I like that, I might end up picking up that new Dishonored game too.

  • Destiny 2 - Something I'll probably play a lot during the first month, and then keep playing a few hours/week onward.
  • Metroid: Samus Returns - I'm not 100% sold on this yet. But since I'm a sucker for Metroid games, I'll probably pick this up close to release.
  • Super Mario Odyssey - This is one of the main reasons why I bought a Nintendo Switch in the first place.
  • Wolfenstein II: The new Colossus - Seems to be a great FPS campaign. MachineGames knows what they are doing with the Wolfenstein licence.

Danganronpa V3, but I probably won't get it on release because those games take over my life for about a week, so I'm saving it for Xmas vacation.

I might pick up one of the "big" releases like Asassin's or Shadow of War, depending on how quick they get discounted.

Cuphead continues to look cool.

I think there's some 3D platformer about a girl with a hat that looks like something I'd be into, I'm waiting for general opinions to get out on that one after the way Yooka Laylee turned out.

My year's already pretty much done though, Yakuza 0, Persona 5 and Automata are too far above anything else I've played this year that my GOTY List That Never Actually Exists might have to consist of only 3 games.

Off the top of my head, and not in any particular order (like interest level): The Evil Within 2, Assassin's Creed: Origins, Call of Duty WWII, Super Mario Odyssey, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, maybe Destiny 2 (maybe), perhaps Cuphead (I don't know much about it other than it seems to be a side scroller, and I love the retro art style). Yeah, that's it for me. Also, not to put down your thread and get up on my high horse, but I made a very similar thread nearly a month ago. I understand it's probably buried under a bunch of other threads by now though.

Looking forward to most of the games people have mentioned.

RUINER. Wolfenstein 2. Destiny 2.

This year really is insane, isn't it? If video game development ceased for the next two years I would have enough in my back catalogue to keep me entertained. But the hits just DON'T STOP. It's relentless. Never been a better time, etc.

The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein TNC. I'll probably play the new AC & Destiny 2 at some point but i'm not really excited about either of them. Shadow of War might be alright.

  • Danganronpa V3
  • Life is Strange: Before the Storm (the rest of the season)
  • Middle-earth: Shadow of War

I am also curious about Wolfenstein II and hope The Evil Within 2 is better than the first game was. I am also excited for Super Mario Odyssey, but I'm worried that game is secretly a collect-a-thon.

I definitely want to get Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at some point but it's already out. I'll likely get NBA 2K18 and put several dozen hours into it before years end (and if Live 18 gets good reviews I may get that). I finally finished Wolfenstein: The New Order and enjoyed it but not enough to pay full price for a sequel this fall but it is definitely on my list for the future.

More Injustice characters and of course Geese in Tekken 7 I am excited for as well as the Horizon: Zero Dawn Expansion but I'm still unsure as to whether I'll pick that up.

I haven't paid too close attention to the big releases this fall (Assassin's Creed, Destiny 2, South Park, Call of Duty etc.) and am currently in a mood where I can't stand anything Nintendo due to various bullshit reasons so no Switch games (or the idea of purchasing the console itself) are interesting me right now but who knows if that will change in the future.

In terms of "big" and "notable" releases that I will get.

  • Super Mario Odyssey - I feel like this one should be fairly obvious. I have a Switch now. It's a new 3D Mario Game. What else am I going to get on that thing? Fire Emblem Warriors? Because let me tell you: even as someone who loves the shit out of Fire Emblem, I'm not convinced I need to experience that series via Musou.
  • Etrian Odyssey V - Another game with Odyssey in the title, weirdly enough. It's been something like 5 years since IV came out and boy could I go for a new Etrian Odyssey game right about now instead of a prettied up remake of an old Etrian Odyssey game with a bad anime story mode or a Persona crossover with dubious mechanics.
  • Divinity Original Sin II - Backed it on Kickstarter, so I already technically have it. Liked the first one a hell of a lot, so I'm more than happy to give this one a shot too when it comes out in two weeks.

And then in the MAYYYYBE (or "Wait for it to go on sale") category:

  • The Evil Within 2 - I thought that first one was incredibly inconsistent, but if this one fixes a couple of its problems I think it could turn out pretty well.
  • Destiny 2 - Honestly, I dunno if I necessarily need "Destiny, but more" in my life immediately at launch, but I've resigned myself to eventually picking this up.
  • Shadow of War - In the 3 years since Shadow of Mordor I've kinda soured on that particular style of open world game. If people are lukewarm on it I'll probably give it a pass entirely.
  • Fire Emblem Warriors - Okay, shoot me. What else am I going to do with all of those Fire Emblem amiibos that I own?

I'm looking forward to a few but Mario is the only thing I plan on buying. A lot of sequels to games I own but haven't finished are coming out. So I think the rest of the year is going to be playing older stuff on PS3 & 4 and the few Switch titles that interest me.

If Ghost of a Tale comes out this year (unlikely), I would be super happy. It looks delightful and memorable. Probably a 2018 game though. That's all I can think of.

Divinity Original Sin 2 is probably the game i'm looking most forward to, i backed both the first one and the second one. And i enjoyed all 80 hours of the first. 2 looks really really good. Have had access to it for a long time, but i have been waiting to start it until its completely finished.

Other then that Destiny 2 and Wolfenstein The New Colossus are both games i plan on getting as well.

Destiny 2 will take up all of my time this year. Might be able to check out the new LotR game if it's any good.

For next year, though - Monster Hunter World looks like it'll be great.

These are the games I will probably buy this fall:

  • AC Origins - I'm a sucker for historical settings in games. Exploring ancient Alexandria taking orders from Cleopatra and Julius Caesar sounds pretty sweet to me.
  • Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection - I've wanted this game since the Xbox One release. Heard some concerning things about park size in the original release but that's fixed now! Definitely looking to get this for PC.
  • Vampyr - Being a vampire in Victorian London sounds awesome. I also like Dontnod's previous releases, Remember Me and Life is Strange.
  • Horizon Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds - I really liked this game and more story with Aloy is great.

Vampyr interests me because I like Dontnod and the setting seems to be my kind of thing. I'm still unsure about the gameplay.

I'll definitely play War of the Chosen for XCOM 2 at some point but I'm not quite sure when I'll find the time.

Ruiner still looks very cool.

The closest release is Bastard's Wound for Tyranny. Me playing that immediately is a given, barring catastrophic reactions from critics and fans.

Edit: Oh, and Shadow of War seemed like an obvious buy for me, but the loot boxes will probably make that a candidate for a steep sale or a pass.

There are a lot:

  • Ys VIII
  • Tokyo Xanadu
  • Mario Odyssey
  • Monster Hunter Stories
  • Utawarerumono Mask of Truth
  • Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection
  • Chaos;Child
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Danganronpa V3
  • Wolfenstein II
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2

I will most likely not play all these games this years, in fact I could see myself playing my backlog from 2017 for many years to come...

For sure:

Destiny 2 - The first one got better as time went on but I liked it enough at the start. I already like what I saw in the Beta and I like to be part of the zetigeist for games like this too.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider - Dishonoreds 1 & 2 are two of my favourite games and this looks like it might be the best one yet. Really excited, I actually didn't realise it was out so soon

Super Mario Odyssey - Of course

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - I really enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles, thought Xenoblade X was grand and beautiful and charming but also weird and very bad in some parts. This looks like it might find a nice place between those two.

It's already been a crazy year for high quality games, and I still have Horizon, Uncharted LL, FF12 and Mario + Rabbids, plus a couple of other games that I missed. So actually only have 4 'must buys' until Christmas is fine with me. Also since I have basically 3 MMOs on the go (FFXIV, ESO, Destiny 2), I probably wouldn't be able to cope if there were 7 or 8 top quality games coming out soon.

Depending on reviews I might be tempted by:

Assassins Creed Origins - This honestly looks terrible but I might have a moment of weakness.

Shadow of War - I like Shadow of Mordor but I'm not sure I can cope with how much stuff they've piled into this game. It looks way too stressful.

Battlefront 2 - Depending on if I'm still playing PUBG and Overwatch and Splatoon and Destiny 2 Crucible by the time it comes out.

Wolfenstein 2 - If it is both good and not too long, I might grab it as a palate cleanser.

Fifa 18 on Switch - Eh just because it might be nice to be able to play on the go.

  • Metroid: Samus Returns: A new 2D Metroid with improved mechanics? Where you can pin items on the map? And it's portable? Yes please!
  • Super Mario Odyssey: E3 trailer. New 3D Mario. Those are the only things I need to say.
  • Sonic Forces: Sonic Generations 2. Once again, all I need to say. And the custom character could be cool if they do it right.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Ideally, I'd like to buy and finish the first one first, so this is the only one that's not a guaranteed buy. But since Persona 4 has officially turned me into a JRPG fan, I may not be able to resist if it turns out this isn't that connected to the first one.

Need to get a Switch with Mario+Rabbids

Slightly interested in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider(Love Dishonored 1 & 2)

Divinity Original Sin 2(Perhaps)

Forza 7(PC)

ME -Shadow of War (PC)(Perhaps)

Destiny 2(PC)

Mario Odissey

Wolfenstein 2(PC)

Also curious about NFS Payback, Battlefront 2 and AC Origins.

Mario Odissey, Destiny 2, Forza 7 and Wolfenstein 2 are locked in for me. October is fucked up dudes.

Oh gawd, XC2 is 2017? OK, I'm getting a Switch.

This list is going to get trimmed down. I don't have time to play all those games and I only buy a game if I have the time to play it. I also don't like to juggle too many games at once. Don't know how the staff does it. GOTY 2017 is going to be so weird.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 - I haven't played a CRPG in a while, but this looks deep and amazing. The promise of a whole race of undead mixed in with all the more classic Fantasy races changes everything. It also looks graphically gorgeous.

Outreach - Stranded on a space station, in the middle of a Cold War thriller story? Super curious how this turns out, and if it's still going to land in 2017.

Shadow of War - Looks like they've done an incredible job expanding what made Shadow of Mordor cool. I believe Monolith could make a system that won't be damaged by microtransactions, too. But I am worried that I'll be wrong.

Katana ZERO - Another game that might slip to 2018, but it oozes style and is definitely a big dot on my radar.

Mario Odyssey - I'm a much bigger 2D Mario guy than a 3D Mario guy, but controlling enemies with your hat just looks so fun.

Not that I'm hurting for content. I haven't beaten Nier yet, or even started Hellblade, Observer, or Darkwood.
