Cuphead looks incredible but everyone is cautiously optimistic about it because of its difficulty and its long development time. I am just looking forward to it when it goes on sale. Like most of games these days: I just don’t have for it. Now it’s a race to see which store puts it on sale first.

There’s a new Metroid game in 2017 and it’s on the Nintendo 3DS. And I’m surprisingly okay with that. I’ve never tried Metroid II on the Game Boy nor did I play AM2R, so I am coming to Metroid: Samus Returns with very fresh eyes. I look forward to trying it on my New Nintendo 3DS XL which hasn’t seen the light of day for well over 6 months. It might be the last Nintendo 3DS game that I will ever buy at near full price so I hope it’s a fantastic swan song for the excellent handheld.

I own a copy of Rayman Legends for the PlayStation 4 but now I wish I didn’t because Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition is coming out on the Nintendo Switch. Making matters worse for me is the fact that I didn’t even launch my PlayStation 4 digital copy of the game. It just seems like a better fit on Nintendo’s portable. I’ve been meaning to play the sequel to the excellent Rayman Origins but other games just keep getting in the way.

When you offer a first person shooter at 30FPS and 60FPS, I’ll be hard pressed to not choose the latter. There has to be some crazy circumstances where I would want to play Destiny 2 on a console instead of PC. I prefer playing shooters with a controller on a couch so talks about the removal of aim assist from controllers would be discouraging but not enough for me to forgo choosing the PC version. Then again, do I want to play Destiny 2? I do not know yet.

Yakuza Zero was an amazing game and I felt like I got my fill of Yakuza for the year. Then, out of the blue, comes Yakuza: Kiwami and I’m diving right back into Kamurocho! This time, I’m not taking the time to see the sights or smell the roses. I’m moving from story beat to story beat and spending minimal time futzing with side missions.

I should be more excited for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy but I’m not. One reason is its proximity to Uncharted 4. While I loved Uncharted 4, I didn’t feel like I needed more of it. The second reason is the fact that I’m drowning in video games at the moment. So many games, so little time.

Sonic Mania is it, right? This is the Sonic game that old school Sonic fans will enjoy and one that will stand beside the likes of the original Sonic the Hedgehog trilogy on the Sega Genesis. I’m not 100% sold but I am optimistic. I am a fan of the Sega Genesis titles and I wouldn’t mind seeing a universally acclaimed Sonic title in 2017.

I remember the Commandos games from when I was a wee lad. They didn’t make a lick of sense to me but I recall the screenshots evoking some bad ass moments. I tried to play them but they required too much patience from me. I wanted guns blazing action while it asked for precision and execution. Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun comes from the same mould but I feel l would be able to appreciate it this time around. But when will I find the time?

Patapon was one of my favorite PlayStation Portable titles. It was charming, unique, and surprisingly addictive. Pon-Pon-Pata-Pon. While I think it would look brilliant on a 4K display, a game like this would be better suited for the likes of the PlayStation Vita or the Nintendo Switch. I just wouldn’t feel right otherwise.

I tried very hard to enjoy Pikmin 3 but I have yet to finish it. I was 75% of the way through it and just stopped. I like the idea behind the game but I just don’t like the controls in that game; it just feels so cumbersome and inelegant. Maybe turning the game into a 2D sidescroller would be more appealing to me.
