Mechanicus totally flew under the radar here. I just started playing it and I love it so far. I didn't know much of anything about the Adeptus Mechanicus in the 40k universe until now and I'm way into it. Man I love the style in this game! Phenomenal soundtrack too. I like how the missions flow, with story choices to make that may or may not lead to turn-based tactics battles. I lost one of my tech-priests during the tutorial, so I thought the game would be a ball-buster, but so far in the main game it seems fine. I'm usually not a big 40k guy, but this one rocks -- check it out if you're looking for a weird gothic-tech atmospheric strategy game.

This has a dumb name and it looks like a Howard the Duck offshoot, but I'm really digging this as well. I'm still learning the mechanics, but it's got some innovations over XCOM that I like a lot, like the real-time stealthy approach, but I learned that enemies have eyes in the back of their heads and will crush you if you mess up your ambush.

On a whim I just fired up the Xbox version of this game. After a 3-day marathon, I can't believe I waited so long to play it. Wow. It's not without some flaws, but man it's a fantastic game. I just bought WD2 and I'm going to go straight to that game.

@mylifeforaiur: I remember starting Pillars and getting distracted by other games for a little while and coming back to it. I didn't worry as much about all the stats, but it's definitely there for the folks that get way into it. I'm an old Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate, and Planescape Torment fan, but Pillars might be one of the best-ever CRPGs. I spent as much time in that game as I did with the Witcher 3 after I came back to it. I'm realizing that good writing is much more interesting to me these days than addicting gameplay, though Pillars became one of those "just one more quest before bed" games for me. You know, I'll just get the next quest started and see what needs to be done and -- oops it's now 3 am. I can't wait for Deadfire.

I'm enjoying the smart dialogue, the great pixel animation, and the awesome cyberpunk styyyyyle. I'm slowly making my way through it after work. Is anyone playing this game?

I'm pretty sure I'll be getting the Xbox One version this time, but AC Syndicate on the PC was very good. I'm hoping to get the Xbox One X in a couple weeks which will probably blow my PC out of the water, so I'll probably wait on AC until then -- really excited for all of this!

This is really awesome, but I can't decide which game(s) to buy first. The recommendations above seem good, but I'm hoping the crew streams some of these games this week.

My patience paid off I guess. There were (and still are) too many great games to play to pick up Nioh for PS4 at the time. Now I can play the version I really want.

This game seems very exciting, and I loved the Planescape game years ago. I just finished Pillars of Eternity and White March expansions and I forgot how much I love a well-written story and meaningful characters, even if I have to do a lot of reading in a game. It looks like Torment will have a lot of cool stuff going on with it.
