Now that four-in-February is behind us, I thought I'd take some time to look into games that I'm at least a little curious about for the calendar year of 2016. I have divided my choices into three broad sections:
Things that will almost definitely be with us in the near-future or before the end of 2016.
Things that might make it into 2016, but you never know.
And, finally, things that I'm totally worried about. Sometimes with good reason.
So, let's take a look and see, shall we? Read more
4iF was one of my favorite Joystiq features. I recall last year I tried to pay homage to it by finishing 4 games per month until I reached May in which I went for a Cinco de Mayo and finished 5 of them. Good times. This year, I'll tackle the following:
I've been playing Disgaea 5 since early December. It's one of my favorite series and I've already clocked over 70 hours into this game. I haven't finished the main story yet so I'll focus on that part now. It's been very interesting so far and I hope the last 5 episodes get even better.
The classic Capcom franchise came to the current gen with a very strong Metroidvania game. I'm currently exploring the map so I can get all the power ups before I go the the final stage. The game appropriately warns you that if you go to the last level you won't be able to go back to the main map, so once I'm done exploring I'll try to finish it.
Oh, Limbo how I have forsaken you. I started playing this bad boy on PC a few years ago, but I never finished it because I really didn't feel like it. I felt platformers belonged to consoles and quit after passing that big and shining HOTEL sign. Now that I got it for free for the PS4 I told myself I'd try to play through it at least once... And the time is now.
I needed an extra game to complete this list so I tried to add a game that I've heard is only 3 hours long. I'm not really sure what to expect form this one, but I've been pleasantly surprised by critically acclaimed indie games before. For example, I loved Papers, Please. Who would have thought checking out passports would be fun?
