Games of Interest

Games that have definitely caught my interest... but I either need to look into them more or need more details to come out before I add them to my wishlist.

List items

  • Watched the Quick Look. Reminds me of 8-Bit Armies in that it may be a sort of spiritual successor to classic Roller Coaster Tycoon like Armies is for classic Command & Conquer. I know there are some other games like this around though so I'll have to check those out too.

  • Huh, so they did remake/repackage classic RCT. Apparently rolls everything from 1 and 2 into one game with some updated features and such. Worth looking into. Oh, apparently there's an "Open RollerCoaster Tycoon" out there too. If that's anything like OpenRA that might be better.

  • Okay so apparently this is the next Halo game following on from 5 according to the official Halo site. Huh. So they've "heard the fans" and are focusing on Master Chief and changing their art direction to something closer to Halo 3. That's cool I guess? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who was totally fine with the style of the new Halo games but I love the old ones too so let's see what happens.

  • THEY TURNED ALL THESE ANIME CHARACTERS INTO KINDA REALISTIC CG MODELS AND IT SOMEHOW WORKS AND LOOKS INCREDIBLE.

  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed was probably the first not-Mario Kart game since Crash Team Racing that I got SUPER into. I'm not sure going cars-only is a great idea and the gameplay for this one looks a little slow, but it's the same devs so I'm definitely interested. As much as I like Transformed it does feel unbalanced in a lot of ways, maybe this will be a more focused, competitive racing game?
