RIME is coming out! I remember being impressed with initial reveal trailer in 2013. It was a PlayStation 4 exclusive at the time, then it fell off the face of the Earth for a couple years before resurfacing as a non-Sony funded title. I still think it looks incredibly pretty but the initial excitement has long faded and now I’ll pick it up on the cheap.

I’ve only played Fire Emblem Awakening and FIre Emblem Fates: Birthright but I burned out on the series already. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest sits unopened somewhere in my house so it doesn’t make a lick of sense to even consider getting Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. One of the primary reasons I disliked Birthright was the focus on the “waifu” aspects of the game. The face rubbing was a bit much. I don’t know if the dialed that back for this remake but I honestly don’t feel the desire to play another Fire Emblem game any time soon so I don’t think it’ll matter either way.

I own two copies of Injustice: Gods Among Us — one for Xbox 360 due to some glitch and a super cheap digital copy of the Ultimate Edition on PlayStation 4 — and I have yet to finish either of them. There’s just something about these NetherRealm DC fighters that doesn’t appeal to me. Some of it is definitely due to the lack of familiarity with the cast but there’s also the way NetherRealm renders their characters that I think is plain ugly. Injustice 2 doesn’t look to appealing to me either. If I were to pick up a super hero fighter this year, it would likely be Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite but seeing how badly Capcom burned me with Street Fighter V, I’m in no rush to get it either.

Loco Roco was quite the little gem on the PlayStation Portable. It and Patapon were two of my favorite Sony first party titles for the portable and it was a shame that Sony weren’t able to strike again with equally quirky and inventive titles for the PlayStation Vita. I doubt I’ll be picking this PlayStation 4 remaster up any time soon but I’m glad Sony are putting it out. It should look amazing amazing on the PlayStation Pro & 4K.

Mario Kart 8 is my favorite Mario Kart game. I’ve tried the original on SNES, I’ve sat around old CRTs with Mario Kart 64 and I’ve dabbled with Mario Kart Wii but none of them grabbed me quite like Mario Kart 8 for Wii U. Needless to say, it was easy for me to trade-in my Wii U copy for the Switch version. Having a portable version of my favorite Mario Kart title seems like it’s a shoe-in. It may not have significant visual or technical improvements over Wii U version but all the little additions and refinements make it worthwhile for me. I’m genuinely curious how it will fare on the Joy Cons.

Finally. It only took three years but Puyo Puyo Tetris is finally making its western debut. I’ll be getting a digital copy for the Switch for that local competitive goodness. I haven’t touched the North American demo so I don’t know how much was left intact or translated. I’m very much looking forward to finally understanding the menus and character text though.

Everyone’s favorite Umbra Witch is now on Steam and as exciting as that is for those who have always wanted to play this game at a consistent 60FPS at 1080p or higher, I’m more excited for the prospect of Vanquish making its way on to the platform. Bayonetta got close to a consistent 60FPS on various consoles but Vanquish was trapped at 30FPS with no means of escape. But now hope has been renewed!

I wonder have more fondness for a title like Yooka-Laylee if I owned a Nintendo 64 and played Rare’s Banjo games. It looks pretty and I’m not above collecting stuff for the sake of collecting stuff but something about it rings hollow to me.

Persona 5 is nearly upon us and that’s a wonderful thing. I enjoyed Persona 3 and absolutely loved Persona 4. I bought a PS Vita just so my bro could play Persona 4: Golden — that’s how much I loved it and wanted him to enjoy it. How do you follow up Persona 4? How do you create a follow up to a game that spawned so many spin-offs and generated so many fans? I have no idea but I am intensely curious. I’m just about done with Yakuza 0 but instead of jumping from one epic Japanese game to another, I’m going to take a small break with Nier: Automata. Vinny is totally right: There’s never been a better time to be playing video games.
