Topics I've Started

  1. Games of 2019- Anticipations, speculation, etc

    05 January 2019 - 06:44 AM

    So, usually we'd post a big expansive list from either PCGamer or RPS here detailing the myriad of games that re supposed to come out during the year, from the lowest indie to biggest AAA blockbuster.

    UNfortunately, both of those lists are pretty crap this year (imho. compared to prior years)

    So I propose we open the floor to the forumites' thoughts on what cool games are coming in 2019.

    Personally I don't htink that either Cyberpunk or BG&E2 are coming out this year. So that's 2 potentially HUGE games off my hype list.

    Out of the other PC-bound games, I'm actually looking forward to checking out most of them, with the notable exceptions of:
    -Division 2
    -Wolvenstein spin-off (due to co-op focus)
    -Gears 5 (due to not being involved in the story, since the first trilogy's not on PC)
    -Crackdown 3 (because it seems to be more of a "make your own fun" game, and I'm not really into those)
    -Skull and Bones (if it releases this year)
    -whatever racing/fighting/sports games qualify as "AAA"

    Aside from that, Capcom is likely to have a chunk of my money and attention, since they're revisiting Resident Evil AND the 2 franchises that starterd as Resi spin-offs (DMC and Onimusha), and both seem like smth I'd like to check out. Id likewise has my full attention after me just having finshed RAGE- I'm planning to play earlier Dooms (3 + 2016), and quite possibly dig into this year's sequels (provided Beth doesn't follow through with its Beth launcher exclusivity, which is dumb; it's not in a position to compete with Steam; )
    -Both Metro and Dying Light 2 interest me; Sekiro looks cool, too. Control I'll probably check out once I get past some of Remedy's earlier games.
    -special mention to Platinum's "Babylon's Fall"- I want to hear more about this game, even if it doesn't make a 2019 release. Because it is a Platinum Game, and that's reason enough.

    Moving away from the "AAA" games, there's Biomutant, Psychonauts 2, The Sinking City, as well as some more experimental projects from mid tier-publishers
    -A plague Tale: Innocence feels more puzzl-y, but it's a cool and novel idea (trying to make your way through hordes of ravenous rats who'll devour you as soon as you're out of the light)
    -Greedfall, which is a Spiders RPG. I mean, "Spiders" are synonymous with euro-jank, but I love that they're wiling to try new and novel settings, even if their quality is like Bioware-lite. And this time they're doing a New World with musket-wielding colonizers vs shamanistic natives, so I'd like to see what they make of it
    -Fade to Silence, a souls-like set in a deadly winter with survival elements due to having to keep warm, but also rescuing other people to make them work in your survivors' camps, and a story-involved "insanity" mechanic... it's a THQ-published game that's supposed to come out of Early Access this year, and it'll be available on GOG, so i'm looking forward to what it turns out to be.
    -Devil's Hunt- a hack'n'slash where a gruff burly man mutates his arms to be all hellish and spiky and punches demons a lot. It's supposedly based on another Polish author's books, and the combat looks all right, so I wanna check it out.
    -Elex 2 might also be out, but I'm hopelessly behind when it comes to Pirahna Bytes' work, so I'm lukewarm on this.
    -Pathologic 2 is supposed to start its episodic releases this year and... if it finishes, I'll check out the whole thing. Same with DontNods "Dark Mirror, which looks pretty intriguing, and seems to be kinda going back to the "memory remixes" thing they tried in Remember me
    -Outward is a fantasy survival-RPG with a focus on ritualistic magic. Which feels like a novel concept that might be worth looking into
    -Outer Wilds is a scifi-exploration type game that's like No Man's Sky, but hand-crafted and confined to a single solar system. Also currently I think it's got timed exclusivity window with the Epic Store)
    (both of these are likely to get confused with Obsidian's "Outer Worlds" a lot, probably)

    And then there's a whole ton of "indie" projects
    -Phoenix Point, the new X-com-like, form the original creator of X-Com- only instead of space aliens its eldritch monstrosities rising from the seas
    -Disco Elysium, a cop RPG with emphasis on psychology, where your "skills" are various cognitive abilities and disorders. Should be very text-heavy and reminiscent of "Planescape Torment"
    -Praey to the Gods, a "Shadow of the Colossus"-like, set in the winter, that's coming to PC. 'nuff said
    -Decay of Logos- what appears to be another souls-like in its fighting mechanics with the USP of having a rideable elk companion, who's to be used in solving puzzles and such. This one just comes off as another passion project from the dev interviews and also seems to have some interesting tweaks to the formula, so I'd like to check it out
    -Encased- an RPG with turn-based exploration that's also a dungeon crawler but set in alt-70s when humanity discovers a ginat alien city complex in a desert and the whole world's attention is on trying to explore and figure it out. The trailers look interesting.
    -Arani- this seems to be a hack'n'slash in the DMC mold, based on the mythology of the Amazonian tribes in Brazil. The reveal trailer looked interesting, and I'm always up for killing monsters in a unique setting.
    -Operencia- The Stolen Sun. Now, party-based, grid-combat dungeon-crawlers aren't usually my thing, but this one is based on Central European (and to be more precise, it' appears, Hungarian) mythology, so it feels worth looking into.
    -Atomic Heart- a somewhat Bioshock-y looking shooter with a Soviet setting where robot research went wrong, and there's loads of homicidal machines to shoot.
    -Close to the Sun- a somewhat Bioshock-y horror game (with no combat) set aboard a 19th century floating city led by Nikola Tesla where things go horribly wrong
    -Element: Space is another Early Access RPG that has you try to hunt down a terrorist network in a interstellar state that's crumbling. you're supposed to choose between allying with faction with different ideologies (to get different tech), and combat seems like a turn-based X-com-ish affair. One to keep an eye on when it comes out of early Access
    -Beautiful desolation- an old-school post-apoc RPG with an African inspired setting.
    -Orange Cast is a Russian mass-effect-style TPS/RPG that also looks interesting
    -Hellpoint is yet Another souls-like RPG, and one that I'm kinda following, purely cuz its aesthetic reminds me somewhat of E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy. Aside from being sci-fi themed on a space station that's overcome by hellspawn from another dimension (or quantum reality, or somesuch), its USP seems to be that due to these quantum fluctuations, conditions aboard the station will change from time to time, so you might encounter new enemies/traps/challenges in previously explored areas. This one isn't particularly high on my list, but it bears watching, maybe?
    -Lost Soul Aside- This is another hack'n'slasher with strong FF visual influences. But it looks pretty cool, and it was made by ONE GUY. Which is ridiculously impressive, no matter how you look at it.
    -Rain of Reflections is an episodic (boo!) cyberpunk-y adventure game with turn-based combat that looks... pretty interesting?
    Scorn, the "body-horror biopunk" FPS is supposed to come out this year (I think? it may have also gone episodic)

    so yeah, there's loads of games I'm looking forward to. How about everyone else?

    I hope you won't mind mate, but I copied and posted that "poem" thing you posted on the West Vs Russian interest thread.. You know, the one that starts off about how pathetic Europe is or has become.. Liked it so much that I had to post it. Keep up the good work on reporting about anything new.. Peace out to you friend..
