Yakuza 0 was my 2017 game of the year. Yakuza 6 does not top it. However, Yakuza 6 is still a very solid entry and one that caps off Kazuma Kiryu’s adventure wonderfully. My only gripes against the game stemmed from the immature Dragon Engine and the dramatic downshift in wackiness.

I was pretty stoked to see the sequel of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons on the big stage during last year’s EA press conference. But when the $39.99 price tag reared its head, I immediately slotted it away for later purchase. It’s a little disappointing to hear that the story didn’t pan out. Fortunately, I just want to do some goofy co-op fun and it looks like this game delivers some of that.

Another Far Cry 5 game debuted and guess what? It’s a Far Cry game. More importantly, it’s a Far Cry game that follows the mould of not quite living up to the pre-release marketing’s story promises; it always seemed provocative but the games end up not saying much at all. The gameplay itself seems to be Far Cry through and through which means if you can stomach another one of those games, you should be satisfied.

I own a copy of Ni No Kuni for the PlayStation 3. I bought it for cheap during one of the many PSN sales. Unfortunately I never got around to playing it and now there’s a sequel. It looks very pleasant but I would feel very foolish if I went ahead and got the sequel before playing the original. I wonder how well it holds up.

Another Kirby game approaches! I shall look at it with respect and try to convince myself it’s worth picking up at a steep discount. But then I will forget about its existence and move on. At this rate, the next time I play anything Kirby related might be in Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch.

I’m not a big fan of Burnout: Paradise but for very superficial reasons. I’m not keen on its aesthetic. I’m not a fan of the music selection. I find DJ. Atomika lame. I’ve tried playing through the game several times on the PC but the game wouldn’t sink its claws into me. I know its beloved and hope this upcoming remaster will serve its fans well. But it just doesn’t do anything for me.

I have yet to play Final Fantasy XV. I bought the PlayStation 4 version near launch and handed it to my brother. The Windows Edition looks appealing with its ability to hit 60FPS but I doubt I’ll double dip. I really shouldn’t get into the habit of double dipping on games I have no plan on playing any time soon.

A new Metal Gear game is upon us and it could not be any less exciting. It’s no surprise though. After the unceremonious departure of Hideo Kojima, any Metal Gear title coming out of Konami will be scrutinized and/or largely ignored by dedicated fans of the franchise. I also doubt the infusion of micro-transactions will go over well with fans of MGSV either — especially after Konami poisoned MGSV’s Forward Operating Base online mode with them.

Did I want to own three copies of Bayonetta and two copies of Bayonetta 2? I do but not for $79.99. I would be more comfortable with the purchase if significant remastering efforts were made to both games but seeing how the changes were not significant, I’ll wait. However, if you have never played both titles and enjoy character action games: do yourself a favor and pick these games up!

One of my favorite PlayStation 2 titles was given a loving remaster (or is it a remake?) for the PlayStation 4. It looks phenomenal and I should play it again some time this year at a lower price point. I already own Bluepoint’s last crack at Shadow of the Colossus with the HD remaster on the PlayStation 3 but I did not play it. It’s been well over a decade since I played Team Ico’s classic so I’m very much looking forward to meeting up with those giants again.
