Right after I posted the list, I remembered a bunch of other games. So here they are some indies and some mainstreams.
I can't believe i left this off the first list! During E3 with all of the games showcased and big 'AAA' GAMES, this was the game that got me the most hype. I love the aesthetics and I loved the way it played. In this game you play as The Shield Maiden. As you use lightning sword and axe to try and plow through hundreds of dangerous enemies! I could say it's like Dark Souls, but I've actually never played Dark Souls, so that's just a feeling I have. Dark Souls or not this game looks awesome all on it's own!
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is one of my favorite manga. And JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is one of my favorite games, so when a sequel was announced, of course I was all over that! With more characters and features and allegedly NO DLC, it's guaranteed to be a great game for me.
Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night
Metroidvania is probably my favorite game genre, top 3 with Stealth and. . . something else. Anyway 2D Castlevania games are great, but I don't think we've got one in awhile. So the guy who made quite possibly the greatest of all Castlevania game AKA Symphony of the night, Koji Igarashi is making his own Castlevania with his own characters. It stars Miriam as she ventures into a castle to fight demons and cure a curse. This is a day one for me, though it might not be coming out this year.
Kingdom Hearts 3
Yeah I name checked this, but I forgot to mention it. I guess it's because I don't necessarily have hype for this. I mean I played the first two games, and I loved them, but I don't feel this definitive urge to play completely. Still doesn't mean I'm not going to pick it up when it comes out.
Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank is one of my favorite game series. Though I haven't played the original games for years now. I remember the game being very fun and inventive. And since it's been 14 YEARS, it's bound to be a fresh and great experience again.
Dark Souls III
I've never played a Dark Souls game. I played Bloodborne, but I've been told the series are only partially comparable. I've never actually had a Souls experience. And I figure this new one is a good place to start, though I might pick up DS2 as well.
I've never played Bioshock 1 or 2. I have Infinite for the PC, but I'm not much of a PC gamer so I haven't gotten really anywhere in it. This collection is partially speculation in that it might not be released this year, but the collection has been rated so, it's all but confirmed.
The King of Fighters XIV
Little anecdote. I once went into a Gamestop and picked up a PS2 game case for King of Fighter 98: Ultimate Match and it actually had the game in the case. That was my first experience with the series, and I really liked it. With those large amount of characters I had never had any experience with. I mean I literally had never heard of the characters before. And I've been in to the series ever since. I was pumped when it was announced. Now I'm not the kind of guy who cares about graphics, but I would dbe lying if I didn't say the visuals kind of bothered me. It's probably because I really like the 2D look of the games, but it's not terrible. Besides VICE IS IN THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know if this game is actually coming out this year. But I sure do hope so. I mean the demo was just pure FUN! For me it's one of the most unique RPG's I've ever played. Now maybe it's like some other game, but I've never played it. The designs are awesome. The gameplay is awesome. As are the visuals. I don't want the dev team to rush, but I really hope this comes out this year!
Valkyria Chronicles: Remastered
I never got to play this the first time around. I actually enjoy turn based tactics, but in my list of games to buy. These games always fall low on the list. And so, I never got around to it. Hopefully I can rectify now.
Odin Sphere: Lefthasiter
Vanillaware makes great games! Dragon's Crown is one of my favorite. I bought this game for PS3 during a sale, but I really never got around to getting far into it. I only got through like the first two levels. And they were really fun, and I knew I wanted to finish it. So it's good that we're getting a remastered version, with new content! Also it's beautiful
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Dialogue Options, Hacking, Stealth, Computer Flavor Text, Multiple Solutions, Multiple Paths, Side Quests. It's like Deus Ex: Human Revolution stuffed almost everything I wanted in one game. So If Mankind Divided is just more but better, I'm ready for it.
Gravity Rush 2
Never played the first one, though I might pick up the remastered version, and the premise alone is enough for me.
Code of Princess
I wanted to play this game since it first game out, but it was a 3DS exclusive and I'm not much of a handheld gamer. . . in that I've never once owned a handheld system. Not even a Gameboy Color or anything. But this game is being ported to Windows, so it'll probably one of the only PC games I pick up.
I've never played Danganronpa, but people say it's on the same wavelength as Persona, and I love Person. So I'm probably going to pick up on release.
Shadow Complex Remastered
I've always wanted to play this, but it's been exclusive to Xbox systems, and so I couldn't. It's a Metroidvania game, and in my opinion, there aren't enough of these games. So I want to play anyone I can, including this one, especially since it was so well received.
Shadow Warrior 2
This game features over 70 WEAPONS! Nuff Said!
I think good swordsman games are lacking. I'm not saying good games with swordsmen don't exist. I'm just saying not a lot games make being a swordsmen feel real. I mean in a lot of action adventure titles, the sword is basically comparable to a big stick or something. Just from pure visuals, and having no experience with it looks like this game will be able to manage that.
Valkyria: Azure Revolution
I put this game at the bottom, 1. Because I just found out about it and 2. Because I'm pretty sure it's not going to be coming out in America this year. And 3. Because I'm not sure I want it so bad. But it seems like a kind of cool action RPG, so I might give it a chance.
