Post Void - September 29th
Asterigos: Curse of the Stars - October 11th
The only games I’m interested in, and when I say interested I mean barely, is The DioField Chronicle and Gotham Knights. I’ll be waiting for reviews for both of those games.
September kicks off my crazy list
9-8 SteelRising (PC/Steamdeck)
9-22 The DioField Chronicle (PC/SteamDeck)
9-27 Trails from Zero (PC/Steamdeck)
9-29 Valkyrie Elysium (PS5)
10-11 NMH3 (PS5)
10-18 Plague Tale (PS5)
10-21 Gotham Nkights (PS5)
10-27 Star Ocean (PC/Steamdeck)
10-28 BAYO3 (Switch)
No way I can play them all before GOW. My backlog are going to explode.
Stray physical for me and Star Ocean.
@LazyLombax I'm keen to see the review of "Asterigos: Curse of the Stars" because if it's good, it could be a day one purchase on October 11th!
From what I've seen of it, it looks like a proper action RPG and not another bloody Souls-a-like clone which is refreshing!
Got Ghostbusters preordered and I don’t care if it’s good. My soon to be five year old son loves, loves Ghostbusters to the point where it’s his absolute favorite anything, so it’ll be fun to share with him anyway. Also, I’ll definitely be playing and trying Overwatch 2. I’ve got some friends that really, really want me to get MW2, but I just don’t have the interest in it and haven’t had much interest in CoD since I got back in for BLOPs4 and MW1, basically.
Looking forward to the Diofield and Valkyrie reviews though (and I suppose Star Ocean, even if the series is a very thoroughly mixed bag in my eyes). I’ll probably play Plague Tale on Xbox since it’s on Gamepass, but I don’t know how eager I am with it. I liked the first game, but it’s one of those titles that I feel like was just a good game that was a bit overly praised by a fair number of people I know because it was passed by with the mainstream press.
October is realistically all about that Village DLC for me though. Can’t wait for that! September is another bonafide Switch month as well. Splatoon 3 and Haiku the Robot will be in my hands by the end of the week.
One of my choice.
I mean why not ?
Nothing wrong to play girlie games on PS5.
What are the football men sitting on in the thumbnail
@Anti-Matter finally a game that will push the PS5 hardware to it's absolute limit. Expecting to hear stories about broken PS5's cos of this game.
I’m waiting for Stray on disc and I’ll pick Steelrising up on the other console.
@Anti-Matter I wish I could unsee that.
Also, I'm waiting for this game too.
love how all the heavy hitters always comes out in the busiest months but summer time it’s a ***** drought and we get things like cat simulator
I'll be buying A Plague Tale: Requiem (PS5) and Gotham Knights (PS5).
Sadly everything else I'll have to wait for deep discounts in a few years.
