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.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the Dragon Ball game I and many others have been wishing for since 1996′ X-Men vs. Street Fighter. Fireball beams, jumping, dashing, and just a lot of over-the-top action. I always believed that a Capcom vs. Dragon Ball should have been a thing. Little did I know, Arc Systems Works would be the ones that brought my dream into reality. You can bet the farm that I am getting this title day 1.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins is the first Assassin’s Creed game in a long time that legitimately intrigued me. Ubisoft gave this game more time in the oven and all the praise I hear about it has piqued my interest. Comparisons to The Witcher III appear to be superficial but the mere mention of CDProjekt RED’s game is enough to give it consideration. I don’t know if I will find the time for it any time soon but when it reaches that $20 price point? I may give a gander.

I didn’t care for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D which subsequently poisoned the franchise for me. I found their worlds to be incredibly beautiful but I didn’t care for any of the stories and characters. I didn’t play Xenoblade Chronicles X and I doubt I’ll give Xenoblade Chronicles 2 a look but more Switch games is always good. Even if it’s not for me.

Super Mario Odyssey might be my most anticipated game of the year. I’m not waiting for it with bated breath and festering with rage because Amazon.ca isn’t going to deliver it to me tomorrow but I am looking forward to playing it. I’m kinda glad it may not make it to me this weekend because it will give me a few more days to wrap up Breath of the Wild which I’ve been milking for quite some time.

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.

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.

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.
